1. Extending the Kitchen’s Reach

With so many clients going for an open-concept kitchen over the last few years, we are designing more than just the kitchen space itself

Now, kitchen design also encompasses spaces like a pantry, mudroom, dining room, and half baths. This is in addition to the other living areas that connect to the kitchen in homes with an open floor plan.

2. Expansive Windows

Windows will be a focal point in 2023, whether updating an existing space or designing a new kitchen.

3. Doubling Up for Efficiency

More activity in the kitchen has homeowners opting for duplicates of the fixtures and appliances they use most.

4. Subdued Countertops

Say goodbye to bold stone patterns and dark granite. As more dramatic colors and rich woods enter the kitchen, expect countertops to lighten the space.

5. Simple Cabinet Doors (That Aren’t Shaker!)

Shaker-style cabinetry is incredibly popular for its simplicity, but designer Catherine Deutschlander, NKBA member and founder of CW Design PLLC, anticipates seeing newer, but still simple, cabinetry styles in the kitchen.

6. Touches of Traditional Style

With decorating styles like Americana and cottage resurfacing in new ways, anticipate more traditional elements coming back into the kitchen, too.

7. Concealed Storage and Appliances

Storage and organization are a top priority in kitchens.

8. Range Alternatives

Cooktops paired with downdraft installation at an island, for example, allow the cook to more easily converse with others in the kitchen or adjacent rooms, making it perfect for entertaining or helping the kids with homework before dinner.
