Top 2023 Kitchen Design Trends

With each passing year, kitchen design trends redefine the heart of the home. The kitchen has to function beautifully in your space so designers and architects are constantly looking for ways to innovate and get creative with this heavily used room. So far in 2023, we are seeing a magnificent blend of elegance and aesthetics that will take your cooking and entertaining experience to the next level. Let’s take a look at some of the top kitchen design trends for 2023 thus far.


The minimal trend has been growing more and more popular over the last couple of years and we are definitely not seeing it go anywhere. Clean, simple lines, clutter-free surfaces, and highly organized pantries and refrigerators create a sense of calm, serenity, and purpose in your kitchen. This year, however, we are seeing that people are embracing color in their minimal spaces. Adding a pop of color or texture to your kitchen adds a layer of personality to make sure it still feels unique to you.

Mixed Materials

There was a time when kitchen design was all about matching. If you put in a stainless steel appliance package, you better have matching fixtures and hardware too. This is no longer the case in 2023. We are seeing contrasting textures being combined into beautifully eclectic designs. Combining wood and metal as well as matte and glossy finishes add a visual depth to the kitchen to make it a more cozy, interesting space. Concrete countertops are being combined with warm wooden cabinets. And modern stainless steel appliances are being paired with more natural stone accents for a mixed, harmonious aesthetic.

Smart Kitchens

Technology keeps getting smarter and it continues to revolutionize home design—especially in the kitchen. In 2023, we have seen voice-activated appliances, touchless controls, and even built-in cameras. Refrigerators can now notify you when you are running low on certain groceries and can even add them to your shopping list for you. Ovens can be preheated remotely making your cooking experience much more efficient which allows you to spend time on other things around the house or even outside the home as well.

Sustainable Choices

Sustainable choices are dominating kitchen design in 2023. Eco-friendly materials like bamboo, recycled glass, and cabinets and countertops made of recycled materials are becoming more and more popular. Energy-efficient appliances are becoming the norm and homeowners are prioritizing environmental responsibility with the choices they are making in their homes. People are creating greener and more sustainable homes with water-saving fixtures, composting systems, and recycling stations.

Colorful Cabinetry

Although neutral, white cabinetry will always have a place in kitchen design, 2023 has homeowners opting for more vibrant colors. Bold shades of deep blue, green, and even black are making a statement and creating a breathtaking contrast against lighter backsplashes and countertops. Creating a kitchen design that includes color allows you to express a piece of your personality in your space and encourages playfulness and creativity in your culinary experience.

Kitchen design continues to be about creating functional spaces that make your life more efficient and enjoyable. Whether you are drawn to the more minimal design, mixing and matching materials, integrating technology, or making sustainable choices in your home, there is definitely something for you in 2023. The kitchen can truly be an extension of your family and personality to make it every bit a part of your home as the rest of it.
