Whether you’re looking to update your existing space or build a new kitchen from scratch. these five trends are sure to add some style and functionality to your home.
Quartz will remain at the forefront of Kitchen countertops
Quartz was created as a high-quality alternative to granite. Granite as a natural stone has dominated the countertop market for years, especially among homeowners who prefer something permanent, durable, and eye-catching. But it has one drawback – its porosity. This means that liquids such as water, wine, and oils are absorbed through the surface, thereby creating stains and creating a favorable environment for bacteria.
Quartz, on the other hand, is non-porous and does not need to be treated regularly. This means quartz is highly resistant to stains and is one of the most hygienic countertop choices for homeowners. In addition, quartz is extremely hard, which makes it very durable and you can see why quartz will remain a first choice for countertops among many homeowners.
Quartz is now available in many shades, patterns, and finishes that mimic the look of natural stones. Our goal for 2023 is to continue our active collaboration with our quartz manufacturers to provide the widest range of quartz varieties so you can find exactly the stone you are looking for.
We are sure that quartz manufacturers will continue to surprise us with new product innovations to ensure that quartz remains the king of countertops. Not just this year, but over a longer period.
Bold Colors and Statement Fixtures
Gone are the days of neutral kitchens with plain cabinets and basic hardware. Today’s kitchens are all about making a statement, and that starts with bold colors and statement fixtures. From vibrant cabinet colors to eye-catching lighting fixtures, these design elements are sure to turn heads and add a touch of personality to your kitchen.
Sanded or polished Kitchen
Honed and brushed surfaces are the most common alternative to polished surfaces and they can be applied to many different materials such as granite, marble, and quartz. Although a polished surface is still the most popular choice, the other two have their advantages.
A sanded surface is a matte surface without any shine. The overall appearance will vary depending on the type of stone, but it should have a faint sheen and a smooth surface. Sanded surfaces go well with marble because without the shine the scratches and imperfections are not as visible.
Brushed surfaces are a newer surface treatment that has become increasingly popular in recent years. It has a faint sheen, is less glossy than polished discs, and feels different in the hands. A brushed surface retains the stone’s original shade and thereby gives it a more complex appearance than cut slabs. In addition, it hides fingerprints and water stains, which appeals to many.
These two surface treatments are available for a large part of our stones. Whether it’s quartz, granite, or marble, don’t hesitate to contact us about your specific requests!
Mixed metals have been a popular trend in other areas of the home for a while now, and they’re finally making their way into the kitchen. This trend involves combining different metal finishes, such as brass, stainless steel, and copper, to create a unique and eclectic look. Whether you mix and match different hardware finishes or incorporate mixed metals into your lighting fixtures, this trend is a great way to add some interest and depth to your kitchen.
Worktops with character – grain and pattern give your worktop character
Homeowners want to add a little more character to their countertops. Luckily, there are technical solutions for that. Nowadays, countertops are available in many different designs, unlike the styles that have prevailed in the past. Say goodbye to the uniform countertops of the past and hello to the realistic graining of the present.
Materials such as quartz are designed to resemble slabs of natural stones such as granite and marble. This means that you create veins in interesting patterns that are swirled into the worktop. The artistic feature adds a wow effect to your kitchen. Do you want something even more realistic; then you don’t need a polished board – sanded and brushed boards have the durability required for kitchens but look completely different in the room.
Through varying surface treatments, you get an interesting combination with other kitchen details such as floors, walls, cabinets, and splash guards. It also gives a twist to cooking through an elegant visual background when you are in the kitchen.
Backsplashes are no longer just functional elements that protect your walls from spills and splashes. Today’s backsplashes are designed to make a statement, and that’s exactly what the latest kitchen trend is all about. From colorful and patterned tiles to textured stone and unique shapes, these backsplashes are sure to add some personality to your kitchen.
Brave and dramatic Kitchen countertops
Bold and dramatic countertops, especially dark countertops can look very gothic in some cases while being very harmonious in other settings.
If you want to make a bold design statement during the renovation, countertops with bold shades are a good solution. That style is not only for modern interiors (of course, black stones look very complex and elegant, especially when combined with chalky white cabinets). Bold and dramatic shades also work well in traditional kitchens; black marble or granite accentuate rustic wooden shelves or a colorful tile splash back. On the other hand, dark discs, both matte and glossy, can accentuate your plates, cutlery, flowers, and linen.
Smart technology is taking over the home, and the kitchen is no exception. From smart refrigerators that keep track of your groceries to touchless faucets and motion-sensor lights, these tech-savvy features are designed to make your life easier and more efficient. And with the ability to control your kitchen appliances and lighting with the touch of a button, you can say goodbye to cluttered countertops and hello to a streamlined and modern kitchen.
Open shelves as the best way to store things in 2023.
Open shelves look fantastic and turn the whole kitchen into a showpiece. It gives a special effect if you have selected plates, bowls, and frying pans, possibly in a specific theme or color. It’s also great if you have guests who can see where everything is. Open cabinets look excellent in traditional kitchens. We love how it fills rooms with color and creates a diverse interior. We think it will be a popular way to store things in 2023.
Sustainability is at the forefront of many homeowners’ minds, and the kitchen is no exception. In 2023, we’re seeing a rise in the use of sustainable materials in kitchen design, such as recycled glass countertops, bamboo cabinets, and low-VOC paints. These materials not only look great, but they’re also better for the environment, making them a smart choice for your kitchen remodel.
