The Biggest Kitchen Trends for 2023

Posted in Blog
16 December 2022

The 2023 trend is for relaxing kitchens with an open feel.

While we may want to hide away our recycling with smart storage, we’re happy to put our kitchen items on display.

And what we’re all really looking for is less stress and more calm.

Create a calm and soothing place

Kitchens can be chaotic places reflecting a busy lifestyle. But many of us yearn for a less hectic life, and the need for calm is being reflected in our kitchens.

Colours and materials are essential to creating a soothing feel. Neutral shades have always been popular, but blues and greens are now coming to the forefront as they offer serenity and an outdoor feel.

Move domestic tasks to a utility room

On the back of the trend for a calmer kitchen is the trend for utility rooms. You can create a less stressful kitchen by moving noisy appliances such as washing machines and tumble driers into a utility room.

A utility room becomes the place for mundane household tasks, while the kitchen becomes a more comfortable place for socialising and relaxing activities such as dining and chatting with friends.

You don’t need a huge amount of space to create a utility room, just enough to house a couple of appliances and hide away baskets of dirty clothes and cleaning paraphernalia. That way, you can shut the door on housework and relax in a stress-free kitchen.

Make recycling easier with smart storage

As well as keeping the laundry and cleaning materials in a separate room, the trend is also to smartly store our recycling.

This need to declutter helps us to feel less overwhelmed by household chores. Recycling is a necessity, but it can be made easier.

Waste separation systems such as Nobilia’s easy-to-open sliding drawers and cabinets make recycling simple as you have built-in storage space for each type of material. There’s a storage unit with a lid that holds all food waste that can be composed. A separate storage zone will house tins or glass that can be recycled.

A smart waste separation system enables you to organise your kitchen efficiently – and do your bit for the environment more conveniently. As a result, your kitchen becomes a less stressful place.

Show personality with open shelving

More and more kitchens are breaking up an expanse of wall cabinets with feature shelving.

Lovers of cooking like to display their diverse range of ingredients and utensils. By keeping them on an open shelf, they’re close at hand for convenience, and they provide a visual source of inspiration.

If you love to entertain, your shelves may be used to display your set of decorative dinner plates or your range of fancy glasswear.

Kitchen cabinets are essential for storing all your everyday kitchen equipment. But open shelves are for showing off your personality and giving your kitchen an individual character.

Get tough with hardwearing worktops

A hot trend for 2023 is durable worktops. Quartz is often the first choice as its hardwearing, heatproof, stain-resistant, and easy to clean and maintain. Quartz comes in a vast array of colours, and it can look like real marble.

Marble is more expensive, but it’s another versatile material that’s hot in kitchens right now. Its unique pattern and colour bring character and charm.

More affordable is granite, which is heat resistant, doesn’t stain, and resists chips and scratches. It also offers a unique natural colour and pattern.
