Kitchen Trends for 2023

As the new year settles in, we endure the winter chill by ticking off new year's resolutions, planning goals and eating the last of the Christmas chocolates. 

You may decide that one of your goals for 2023 is to design the kitchen of your dreams; whether you're renovating, remodelling, or starting from scratch!

From paint colours to textures, layout plans to décor style – we’re sharing our the kitchen trends for 2023 to inspire your upcoming transformations! 


1. Natural Elements

Incorporate natural materials, stones and colours to create a soft, calming space that reflects the natural beauty outside of your home. Don’t be afraid to layer different components to achieve an overall sense of harmony, such as dappled marble worktops, wooden boards and neutral shades.

2. Social Islands

Kitchen islands have always been a popular, stand-out feature for those looking to gain extra workspace and storage from their layout. However, what was once a statement workspace has now been elevated to incorporate a more social aspect to its design. From two-tier, integrated breakfast bars for casual meal times,  to banquette seating for more formal gatherings, optimise your island space and gather with your loved ones.

3. Green Tones

Following the nation’s adoration for green in all elements of home décor in 2022, we’re excited to see that the trend isn’t set to go anywhere in 2023. With an expected rise of muted, mid and deep greens throughout kitchen design, get ready to fall in love as these cooler tones bring a fresh perspective to the neutral palette.

4. Playful Textures

Textures are leading designs in the industry right now. People are turning to more eye-catching textures to bring depth and flare to their kitchen.

A crowd favourite is the ever-popular fluted glazes doors; which bring a cool, industrial edge to any contemporary or classic designs.

5. Statement Handles

Statement handles have an instant impact on your kitchen look, giving it a new lease of life and elevating the overall style. Opting for more decadent and bold handles, such as satin brass or a striking knurled design, brings a level of sophistication to a kitchen.

You can also get creative with blending different finishes and styles together for an individual look.
