The role of the kitchen has been transformed during the global pandemic for homeowners. While the kitchen has always been considered the epicenter of the home, kitchens have evolved into multi-functional spaces that serve as offices, libraries, studies, classrooms, conference rooms, cafes and hobby centers among numerous other roles.
The new functional demands have fueled explosive growth in kitchen remodeling among homeowners. And that trend is not expected to wane in the coming year. To help ensure that homeowners create the kitchen of their dreams, we offer the following trends that are expected to be at the forefront of kitchen design in 2023 and beyond.
Black finishes are no longer a fad or fleeting trend. Black matte or gloss appliances, cabinet and door hardware, and plumbing fixtures have become mainstays of new kitchen design.
Modern design, characterized by open floor plans and clean lines, will continue to increase in popularity. The contemporary vibe is enhanced when homeowners mix and match metal finishes such as pairing black with rose gold, nickel with brass and chrome with bronze.
Helping to streamline the look of a modern, new kitchen is downdraft ventilation. A downdraft system integrates the ventilation directly into the cooking surface. These systems help capture smoke, steam, grease particles and odors at the cooking surface, pulling them down and out of the kitchen before they can escape into the air. Therefore, there is no need for a bulky range hood. Downdraft ventilation systems are a great option for open floor plans, kitchen island cooktops and kitchens that lack the space for a range hood.
At Country Cabinet, etc., we anticipate that the use of pops of color to make distinctive and personal design statements will become mainstream, especially when complemented by bold countertops and backsplashes that help create artistic focal points with an endless array of materials that often include stone, glass, quartz and marble.
Another popular trend is to transform the sink into a design statement and an extension of the countertop. A workstation sink combines in one place traditionally separate areas of a kitchen. These sinks feature multiple accessories enabling you to wash food, chop and prep it, do clean up, dry dishes and more. Workstation sinks are designed to help save space and time in the kitchen and often serve as a focal point that wows guests and family alike.
