It’s no secret that the kitchen plays a large role in the appearance and feel of the home. It’s important that it’s a space that you are pleased with and enjoy being in. As we look ahead to a new year, it’s time to consider what the kitchen trends will look like in 2023. According to experts, you can expect to see bold colors, mixed materials, and more multifunctional spaces. Continue reading to learn more about what we’ll be seeing in the kitchen in 2023.
As we move closer to a new year, cabinetry will be one of the bigger focuses in kitchens. Expect to see more bold cabinet color choices, mixed with other interesting and unique finishes. It’s also anticipated that we’ll be seeing more two-toned cabinetry, as having contrasting colors can create depth and elevate the overall look of your kitchen by bringing in subtle variations. In addition to the contrasting, closed cabinetry is out and open shelf like cabinetry is in. Rather than having closed upper cabinets above your countertops, there is going to be a shift toward a more open concept when it comes to cabinets, allowing for a more organic feel. Similar to the open concept design for cabinets, it’s also expected to see a revival of the stained-glass cabinet look. While the glass cabinet look has been around for years, stained-glass has come and gone. It looks like 2023 is the year when we see the return of that. The stained-glass design plays off of the open concept of typical glass cabinets, while also adding in some extra details. Creative cabinetry will be making its presence known in 2023 and for those who are looking to make changes to their kitchen, replacing your cabinets can be a great way to freshen up your kitchen without a full renovation. When redoing your cabinets, it’s up to you what you want to do and at Bath+Kitchen Remodel, it’s our job to help bring your vision to life with our custom and semi-custom options.

While changing the backsplash in your kitchen is no easy task, it’ll be worth it in the long run. It’s important to figure out which type of backsplash you want, as it can get expensive quickly. When looking to the experts for what they are looking forward to seeing in 2023, they said that dramatic stone is one of many trends that will be making its presence known this upcoming year. Using stone backsplash allows you the ability to choose from a busy stone or a solid stone backsplash to help best compliment your existing cabinets. If you aren’t on board with stone backsplash, another trend that is anticipated is detailed backsplash. Types of detailed backsplashes that we might be seeing are mixed materials; having a solid color backsplash that will stand out against more subtle cabinetry or countertops, sustainable backsplashes such as ceramic tiles glazed with pigments derived from industrial metal waste or even reclaimed wood tile. Another type of backsplash that may grow in popularity this upcoming year is using the same material for your backsplash as your countertops. Using the same material for both can give your kitchen more depth, giving it a sleek, elevated appearance.
Rather than using the same material in your kitchen for your island and countertops, there will be a shift toward mixing materials, such as using wood, stone, metals, and ceramics that will go alongside new and upcoming mediums. This result will be visually and textually pleasing, as it’ll create a nice contrast between the materials, allowing parts of the kitchen to stand out more than others. In addition to mixing materials for countertops, the muted tone and style will be making its way out, creating room for more dramatic styles of marble and other countertop materials. The rise in popularity of using metal as countertops comes from the overall minimalist and modern appearance they have, as well as being antibacterial, and easy to clean and maintain. The diversity of materials for countertops will also be making its way to the overall layout in the kitchen. Adding more color and contrast into the kitchen will become more popular in the new year as the desire for more dramatic designs are implemented. Taking the time to plan out your kitchen renovation will allow the process to go more smoothly because you won’t have to stress about figuring out what you want along the way, as it’ll all be completed before the renovation process begins. Along with planning out what you would like to upgrade in your kitchen, making sure you order anything you may need ahead of time will help prevent any delays or added stress.
Renovating your kitchen can be costly. It’s important to figure out what you’d like to have redone in your kitchen and determine what your budget will be for the renovation. Creating a budget for your renovation will ensure that you know what you can afford and how much you’re willing to spend. While budgeting is essential to avoid overspending, how you’re financing this project is just as important, if not more. While planning your renovation, look into available financing options to determine what works best for you and your wallet. If you’re planning a full kitchen remodel it’ll be expensive, so if you don’t have the funds available upfront and have lived in your home for at least 6 years, look into qualifying for a tax-deductible home equity loan. This is a great way to get financial assistance through the equity you’ve built up in your home while adding value to the home itself.
2023 is going to have new and exciting design opportunities as well as bringing in some styles from the past. It’ll be interesting to see where the trends of 2023 take kitchen designs and what will become the most popular trend in the new year. While you may not be updating your kitchen every year, seeing the trends that are being predicted for the new year can provide you with new design ideas and inspiration for when you choose to update your kitchen.
