As 2022 slowly comes to an end, we are seeing new kitchen design trends enter the remodeling space. Kitchens are no longer just functional living spaces, instead, residents are taking a more stylized and creative approach to the modern cooking area.
Homeowners can expect these trends to popularize throughout the next year, so this article is perfect for anyone dreaming up their future kitchen remodel. Whether you want a simple kitchen countertop renovation, a new accent piece to spice up the space, or an entire kitchen remodel, here are some ideas to watch for as we move into 2023.
#1. Dark Countertops
Bright white kitchens have been popular for a few years now, but designers are predicting a shift to dark countertops. Black granite and cement countertops are bringing a level of depth to the modern kitchen space. Whether you are going for an industrial or farmhouse look, dark countertops could be a timeless renovation worth speaking to your remodelling contractor about in the future.
#2. Smooth Curves
As design trends evolve, there is a higher demand for multi-dimensional spaces. Smooth curves in countertops and kitchen tables are bringing an elevated look to kitchens. If you consult a custom builder, you can discuss potential ways to bring a sense of flow to your kitchen with precisely designed curvature.
#3. Colorful Terrazo
Terrazo is a composite material that was commonly found in older homes on countertops and floors. However, colorful terrazzo is making a comeback as a design accent to exotic kitchen cabinets and floors. If you want to bring an eccentric retro look to your space, consider a colorful terrazzo instead of traditional granite countertops. However, for an even more durable finish, our flooring installation team offers terrazzo-like epoxy floor styles with a multitude of color options.
#4. Round Islands
Similar to the smooth curve trends in kitchen spaces, round islands are bringing a new level of luxury to kitchens. If you want to optimize your space without blocking off your kitchen, a round island could be a great way to tie together your kitchen cabinets and countertops. If you are doing a full kitchen remodel, brainstorm with your general contractor about ways to integrate your home’s theme into your island design.
#5. Rustic Wood Cabinets
Rustic wood kitchen cabinets are a great way to add warmth to your kitchen, especially if you have wood throughout the rest of your house. Opt for a deeper-toned wood if you still want to maintain a modern aesthetic, especially since these tones blend well with brown-toned granite countertops or sleek marble countertops. Or use a light-colored wood with darker countertops for a more airy and open feel in your remodeled kitchen.
#6. Brass Accents
Sterling silver kitchen accents are commonly found in most homes, however, brass accents are bringing a diverse character to modern kitchens. If you are doing a complete home renovation, consider the color tones of your home. In some cases, gold fixtures and accessories may be what you need to transform the energy of your space.
#7. Natural Colors
Many homeowners get caught up in new trends but find that the colorful or all-white kitchens don’t always age well for their style. If you want a kitchen remodel that increases the property value of your home and maintains a timeless relevance, look for natural colors in your granite, cabinets, and kitchen accents. For example, this could look like a wood cabinet with natural granite countertops, sterling silver accents, and a complimentary backsplash design.
Quartzite is a hard rock material created by a mosaic of quartz crystals. Every quartzite slab is extremely unique which creates an engaging kitchen countertop aesthetic. Due to the appealing appearance of quartzite, it’s a great option for homeowners who want a luxurious stone in their kitchen that will endure years of everyday kitchen use.
It’s a resilient material that brings a lovely touch of texture to your kitchen. Keep in mind that quartzite is harder than granite and doesn’t need as much maintenance as marble, making it the perfect option for durability.
#9. Invisible Stove Tops
Invisible stove tops are slowly integrating into modern homes as an upscale design addition. An invisible stove top is when the burners are placed below the surface of the countertop. Countertops continuously flow into each other without the look of a ‘stove,’ however, the stove area has the same functionality as a normal four-set burner. If you want the stonework in your kitchen to take center stage, consider talking to your custom builder about invisible stone top options. This trend parallels modern kitchen trends that blend appliances like refrigerators, dishwashers, and microwaves into the cabinetry.
#10. Cabinets to Ceiling Designs
Another popular trend is elongating all of your surfaces including kitchen countertops and kitchen cabinets. Traditionally, cabinets aren’t built all the way to the ceiling, cutting off the room with a few feet of extra space. Cabinets that are built to the ceiling give a ‘wow’ factor to any kitchen, creating the illusion of expansion and depth. As long as you don’t have vaulted ceilings, cabinets that expand to the ceiling could be an interesting option to consider.
Planning your new kitchen remodel can be both an exciting and daunting task. If you don’t know where to start, consider focusing on the basics like kitchen cabinets and kitchen countertops. Explore some of the different styles and color schemes you would like to integrate into your space. Once you’re ready to jumpstart your kitchen remodel, consult a general contractor about your vision and their professional capabilities.
