6 Best Kitchen Trends of 2023

For about a decade, kitchen design trends have stayed largely the same.  Minimalism and white-on-white have dominated the interior design world for years but in 2023, we’ve started to see moodier palettes, personalisation and maximalism.  It’s time to embrace bold materials, warm tones and more detail. We predict these will grow to be the hottest trends coming into 2024 and beyond.

Plenty of Character In Kitchen Cabinets

add personality

Interior design trends are moving towards neutral and calming designs with pops of interest. We’re seeing kitchen cabinet doors in warmer colours and kitchen benchtop trends for 2023 encourage more personality than before. A bold, deeply veined benchtop is the perfect choice to add character when paired with softer cabinets colours.


Natural Stone Benchtops

Earthy & non-toxic

The move towards eco-centric design has increased the use of natural materials in kitchen renovations. Natural benchtop choices include wood, stone, marble, and metals, and many of these options look great next to the top kitchen hardware trends of 2023. A healthy kitchen environment demands eco, non-toxic surfaces. Our unique stone kitchen benchtops have been designed to offer the beauty of natural solid stone with the added benefit of increased durability and hygiene. Heat, scratch and stain resistant with no ongoing maintenance means you can enjoy the qualities and aesthetic of this hard-wearing surface for many years to come.

Kitchen Hardware Trends

While handleless doors remain popular for the minimalist kitchen, there is a growing demand for metal kitchen door handles. Some of our favourites can be seen here images:

1. Champagne Finish
2. Brushed Matt Brass
3. Matt Black
4. European Pewter
5. Brushed Nickel
6. Mixing and matching knobs and pulls

7. Subtle curves


Focus On Kitchen Art

personal touch

Minimal yet bold decorative pieces are the secret element of future kitchens. Oversized artwork and handmade display items add personalisation and character. Art pieces are easy to incorporate with kitchen renovation ideas and can tie in well with two-tone kitchen cabinet colours. What you choose now can always be updated to suit your changing style in the future.


Slab Kitchen Splashbacks

hiGHlightING stone

Traditional tiled and glass splashbacks are being replaced in favour of large-scale splashbacks made out of one large piece of stone. This is an eye-catching and functional choice as it provides a seamless look without grout lines so it’s easy to keep clean. It can be matched to the benchtops, or used to make a statement with a bold contrasting colour or design. Many clients are requesting slab stone kitchen splashbacks to the ceiling, around windows or a range hood. You can even forgo the upper cabinets to allow the stone to shine.

Play with colour

Yes, white is still a popular choice for kitchens in 2023 but colours are definitely trending toward warm, natural timber tones in both dark and light hues as well as bold pops of colour. All-white cabinets and cool greys will be replaced with creamy off-whites and warm greys. Heading into 2024 we can expect to see a lot more organic and saturated colours.
