2023 Design Trends for Your Kitchen
If you’re interested in doing a kitchen renovation, it’s important to discover the latest trends that will keep your space up-to-date and in style. That way, this necessary room in the house can have a great blend of function and design. Plus, an on-trend kitchen is one of the best ways to get a great return on investment if you’re thinking of selling your home anytime soon! Whether you’re renovating or starting from scratch, here are some of the top kitchen design trends to watch out for in 2023.
Natural Stone Countertops and Backsplashes
Natural stone has long been a popular countertop material for over 25 years. While its popularity may have taken a dip with the introduction of engineered quartz, this kitchen favorite is making an explosive comeback. Homeowners are frequently choosing unique-looking granite or quartzite slabs for their countertops and backsplashes to add a sense of luxury and design to this space.
Consider using a unique-looking natural stone slab to create a waterfall-style island. This design feature entails using the same countertop material in a vertical application along the side of the cabinets with the intention of creating a continuous flow to the floor rather than stopping at an edge. It can look like one congruous piece of stone for a sleek, sophisticated aesthetic, depending on your island size and slab size of your natural stone. The professional designers at Alps Craftsman can help you select the perfect slabs to achieve this beautiful look!
Many designers and homeowners are starting to harness the beauty and uniqueness of natural stone as a design element and not just for its functionality. Full-height backsplashes allow for the patterns of the natural stone to be seen more easily when entering the kitchen, creating a cohesive and one-of-a-kind look and feel of the room. The long runs of countertop material as the backsplash also make cleaning easier as there are no grout lines that come with traditional tile.
Homey Kitchen Cabinets
Instead of cabinets that feel cold or utilitarian, many people are leaning toward more homey cabinet designs. This means using solid wood and embracing natural finishes rather than painting the cabinets in different colors. If painted cabinets are being used, colors like green or black are being selected versus white or gray, which we’ve seen be very popular in the last couple of years.
Another popular expression of this decor style is to use cabinets that look more like furniture. For example, adding legs to the bottom section of cabinets will make them look more like furniture and less like a kitchen cabinet alone.
People are also embracing wider, larger bottom drawers instead of standard cabinets. This is one of the most functional kitchen trends this year, especially if you have a lot of cookware and other items you need to organize.
Fixtures in Bold Finishes
Standard kitchen fixtures finished in brushed nickel or chrome are beautiful but are becoming outdated. Updated fixtures featuring bolder finishes are definitely heading into the spotlight.
Look for something deep and dramatic like a matte black color for a farmhouse or industrial-inspired space. Burnished gold and brass are also on-trend for 2023. Some homeowners are taking things a step further by mixing finishes within a room.
