Latest Trends in Kitchen Remodels for 2023

The kitchen is probably the busiest and most important room in any home. Most people begin their day in the kitchen, if not with breakfast, then at least with a cup of coffee. Families and friends share meals and congregate in the kitchen. Many of our memories of home take place there. Even if you don’t cook much, you probably want a kitchen that’s functional and beautiful. So if you're planning a kitchen remodel, here are some of the latest trends for 2023 that you may want to consider.

Latest Color Trends For Kitchen Remodels in 2023

  • Although white kitchens are still popular, color is coming back. If you want a beachy, nature-inspired look, natural wood cabinets are once again coming back (and there are several wood tones to choose from)!

  • Want painted cabinets? Blues and greens are the most popular choices. Subtle gray undertones with these 2 colors are also a hit!

  • Colorful backsplash tiles and stone slabs with bold patterns.

  • Wallpaper! It can go on walls behind open shelving or in a beverage station. You can choose a colorful pattern or bold graphic print, and the peel-and-stick options can make the idea of wallpaper less intimidating.

Modern Cabinets

Shaker cabinets are still a popular choice because they have a timeless, classic look. But a new trend that we’re going to see more of in the coming months is the modern shaker cabinet. They still have the flat, square panel on the front of the cabinets, but it’s thinner than on a traditional shaker cabinet and has a more modern look. It offers a look that is modern, yet still has a classic, timeless appeal.

Statement Lighting

Lighting is more than just a functional element; it's a design statement. Unique fixtures that make a bold statement are being used to draw attention to the kitchen island or dining area. Statement lighting adds personality and character to the space, acting as both a functional and decorative element. Additionally, mixing metals, such as brass cabinet and drawer pulls combined with black iron light fixtures, helps each element stand out and adds an eclectic feel to the space.

Bold Islands

Kitchen islands are literally the centerpiece of the kitchen, so they should be beautiful as well as functional. Bold statement islands are very popular, and there are many ways to achieve that. Beautiful stone slabs with a waterfall edge add a drama and can make the island the focal point of the kitchen. Another option is painting the island a contrasting color from the other cabinetry or using a different type/color of wood. If you have the space, having two kitchen islands is both a bold statement and a practical choice for additional counter and seating space. Finally, a newer trend that is gaining traction is curved kitchen islands. They are sleek and modern, but also help soften the straight lines found in the rest of the kitchen.

Coffee and Beverage Stations

Having a dedicated coffee and beverage station is a luxury that also feels like a necessity once you have it. Having a dedicated space for your coffee maker, a wine fridge, and storage for cups, glasses, and drink mixers can help you keep your kitchen organized and tidy. These stations keep everything you need for your daily caffeine fix in one place, and during parties it becomes a drink mixing station.

Hidden Storage Solutions

Maximizing storage is crucial in any kitchen remodel, and homeowners are increasingly turning to clever, hidden storage solutions. Pull-out pantry shelves, corner cabinets with rotating trays, and under-cabinet drawers are just a few examples. Utilizing every inch of space keeps your kitchen organized and clutter-free, and there are lots of new ways to accomplish it. Ask a cabinet professional or designer to show you options.

Open Shelving

Open shelving is a popular choice for displaying dishes, glassware, and decorative items. It also helps create an open feel in the kitchen. Depending on your style and personal preference, you can either use a few shelves to display plants and/or décor, or you can use open shelving exclusively instead of upper cabinets.

The kitchen is not just a place to cook; it's a hub for socializing, entertaining, homework, and family time. It truly is the heart of the home. The latest trends in kitchen remodels are all about creating open, functional, and stylish spaces that reflect the needs and personality of homeowners. Whatever your lifestyle and personal preference, there's something for everyone in today’s kitchen designs. So whether you want an entire kitchen remodel, or just need to make a few key updates, there are many options to choose from.
