When doing a kitchen remodel, it can be hard to know where to start and to stay in touch with what is trending. The kitchen is one of the best places in the house to have statement pieces that stand out from the rest of your home. Let’s go over some of the top kitchen trends for 2023: 

Stone slabs  

One of the most popular trends right now is stone slabs. There are endless opportunities to use stone slabs in your kitchen, making it unique. Slab backsplashes are a great way to enhance your space. Some homeowners choose to do a slab all the way to the ceiling or around windows. You can match the backsplash to your countertops or use a bold contrasting color. Stone slabs are easy to clean and keep a seamless look without grout lines.   

Larger Islands  

Many homeowners are choosing to go for a larger kitchen island to make room for dining and entertaining all in one place. The traditional dining room is becoming less popular and is being replaced by large open kitchens.   

Warmer tones and bold colors 

White will continue to be a popular kitchen color in 2023, but more individuals are embracing the bold and warmer tone colors. Natural wood tones for cabinets are becoming more popular, as well as creamy off-white and warm greys.   

Butler’s Pantries  

Also known as a functional pantry or a working pantry, butler’s pantries can provide additional food storage, a coffee bar, or a food prepping area. They can be hidden behind custom cabinets and are a great conversation starter for large gatherings.   

Smart technology and hidden outlets  

Appliances connected to your Wi-Fi and easily controlled by your phone are becoming increasingly popular. With the click of a button, you can preheat your oven from the other room. Another popular trend is hidden outlets. Having various outlets in the kitchen is essential, but now with the ability to put them under the cabinets, it creates a cleaner look.
