2023 kitchen design trends create statement as chef-inspired oasis

The kitchen isn’t just a place to cook food to nourish the body, but a place where one gathers with friends and family to connect and make memories. Because it’s the heart of the home and facilitates so many activities, it’s important to consider how a kitchen design can enhance the meaningful moments enjoyed within the space.

With this in mind, many people desire to upgrade their kitchen in 2023. Consider the top trends in kitchen design and how they can enhance the space:

Focus on functionality

The kitchen space is significant from an investment point of view, as well as an aesthetic one. Beyond the monetary and cosmetic aspects, it’s important to keep in mind the kitchen is also the hardest-working space in the home. The products selected should be beautiful yet durable, and the materials used are as important as the design itself.

When beginning a project, seek options that enhance work areas, ease of operation and convenience. Consider a chef’s sink that fits personal needs, a faucet that provides multiple water pressures to conserve output or a separate filter faucet to cut down on bottled water consumption. When researching, look for materials that can withstand the rigors of daily use while maintaining their luster and depth of color.

Minimalist designs

Expect to see more minimalist designs in upscale kitchen products in 2023 and beyond. Remember, minimalist doesn’t mean minimal functionality. The best products pair superior function to suit modern life with minimalist designs that please the eye and offer understated elegance to a room.

For example, the Kallista cold-water contemporary filter faucet features a slim, minimalist design that pairs beautifully with the Juxtapose series. The faucet has a 360-degree swivel spout and requires a water filtration system, such as the Kohler aquifer water filtration system. The faucet is available in polished chrome, polished nickel, brushed nickel, unlacquered brass, matte black and stainless finishes.

Thoughtful details

Like the jewelry that makes an outfit, thoughtfully selected details elevate the kitchen. Many people are putting in coffee/ espresso stations that they use every day and distinguish the space by using expensive tile to define that one small area and set it apart. Complementing products also serve to complete the look, such as finish-matched soap dispensers or handcrafted cabinet hardware.

Intricate tile backsplashes, a statement-making feature wall, updated lighting, fun bar stools, vintage-style table and chairs, and new appliances in a finish appropriate to the fixture and faucet choices will also elevate a kitchen design.

An insider note: Expect Mid-century modern aesthetics to continue to be big in 2023 because they tend to embrace minimalist design while maintaining an enduring warmth. This can help as a guide when determining the kitchen details.
