Exciting Kitchen Design Ideas for 2023

There are many exciting trends in modern kitchen design, and the right trend for your kitchen will depend on your personal style and preferences. Some popular trends in modern kitchen design include:

  • Sleek, minimalist design: This trend focuses on clean lines, simple shapes, and a monochromatic color palette to create a sleek and modern look. Often we see this style really come into it’s own when paired with porcelain countertops and wall-cladding. Large-format porcelain surfaces (Dekton, Florim, Level, Lapitec, Neolith, and other mineral surface materials) tends to offer a thinner, cleaner look to the spaces in which is is applied.
  • Open-concept kitchens: This trend involves removing walls and barriers to create a more open and spacious kitchen that flows seamlessly into other areas of the home.
  • Statement islands: This trend involves using a large, eye-catching island as the focal point of the kitchen. The island can be a different material or color than the other kitchen surfaces, for example, a completely black quartz island with white quartz in the surround kitchen, and can feature built-in appliances and seating. Oftentimes a waterfall edge can be included to give the island a sleek, sophisticated appearance.
  • Mixed materials: This trend involves combining different materials and textures, such as wood, metal, and stone, to create a more eclectic and interesting kitchen design. Again, we see a lot of porcelain kitchens and even bathrooms incorporating these ideas.
  • Bold, colorful accents: This trend involves incorporating pops of bold color, such as bright reds, greens, or blues, into the kitchen design to add visual interest and personality. A popular trend in the South Sound area has been blue cabinets with white quartz countertops for example.

These are just a few of the many trends in modern kitchen design, and there are many other options to choose from. A professional kitchen designer can help you explore the trends and find the one that is right for your home.
