There is almost no likelihood that you will renovate your kitchen on a yearly basis. However, as this space serves as the house’s (pardon the cliché) “heart,” it is evident that it is influenced by shifting interior design trends and styles. You should also be aware of the rising trends in kitchen design, from cabinets to countertops to layout (are islands out?! ), if you’re a touch tired of the whole all-white-everything aesthetic. We contacted some of our most reliable suppliers to see what they are already ordering for installations for customers in the next year. Continue reading for their most accurate predictions. (P.S. If you want to learn more about cabinetry forecasts, go here to see our 2023 Kitchen Cabinet Trends.)
No 1. Imaginary Islands
Shavonda Gardner’s Sacramento, California, house tour Unlacquered copper pots, a soapstone counter, and “living” kitchen finishes ensure that a patina will develop soon. cabinetry range mastercraft table lamps with a halo Meadow wallpaper by Mitzi, floor and backsplash tiles by Kelly Ventura skylight with fireclay tiles, a velux hood, and a zephyr
Linda Hayslett thinks that the kitchen island is experiencing a rebirth. “I predict fresh forms and a whole different vibe.” Consider this variation in Shavonda Gardner’s kitchen, where a classic island has been replaced with a multipurpose dining table—a change we hope to see more of in the future.
No 2. Warm Woods

Sarah Robertson, the creator of Studio Dearborn, believes that dark stained wood cabinets in kitchens is now making a comeback. She chose it for the kitchen’s bar area. headquartered in San Francisco Katie Monkhouse concurs, stating that she is now “pinning all the warm toned wood.”
No 3. kitchen with colorful patterns
Wendy Labrum, a designer from Chicago, is unabashed in her forecast: “Marble! Color! We’re sick of the same old, same old “She declares. When creating the kitchen for this year’s Kips Bay Dallas showhouse, Christopher Peacock most definitely received the word. Bold wallpaper, a graphic backsplash, and two-tone cabinetry create a layered environment.
No 4. Kitchen Backsplashes That Aren’t Usual
Who says backsplash tiles have to be white? In fact, we’re now beginning to realize how this area may be utilized as the ideal blank canvas for a creative wall (particularly if your kitchen lacks wall space). Whittney Parkinson used an antiqued glass panel in her design for the 2022 Whole Home to warmly open the area.
No 5. Surprising Colors for Cabinetry Pink Kitchen
EDMUND KANE MACCHIA
“Cabinet hues that pop! Anything other than white, such as blues, greens, mauves, and saffron “Molly Torres Portnof of DATE Interiors foresees. Baxt Ingui Architects used a combination of mauve and rose in their design for the 2022 Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse to create an especially spectacular eat-in kitchen, as shown below.
No 6. Warmer Whites
Countertop, space, building, interior design, furniture, ceiling, cabinets, and flooring
If you do decide to remain with white, Nina Carbone predicts a rise in demand for ivory-colored cabinets that are “not blinding white,” since they create a cozier atmosphere, as in this DeVOL kitchen.
No 7. Detailed Millwork

More cabinet millwork detail rather than simply a straightforward Shaker shape is a further tendency that Carbone observes. These cabinets were created by Whittney Parkinson for the 2022 Whole Home and have a double-edged frame to highlight the two-tone colour.
No 8. Textile details
The lower curtains and inner-door fabric panels in this laundry room by Noel Pittman, which are common features in English country homes but are not technically kitchens, are making their way into modern kitchens where they add a softness to balance out marble, stainless steel appliances, and metal hardware.
No 9. Kitchen Countertops with Mix-and-Match
The task at hand, according to Kristina Phillips, will include mixing countertop materials. “Like soapstone around here and quartzite on the island.” In her personal kitchen, Food Network star Molly Yeh made this work. The island is constructed of butcher block for preparation and serving, while the baking area is built of cool marble.
No 10. Adjustable Bar Sink for Media Rooms
We’re referring to 2023 as the year of the refrigerator drawer on the more technical side of trends. Why keep beverages in your primary refrigerator when you can build a separate drawer, like Keia McSwain did in the Whole Home’s media room? Additionally, since individuals don’t have to go to the fridge every time they want a Coke, dinner preparation is significantly simpler.
No 11. smart appliances
Even though smart appliances have long been hailed as “the next great thing,” their time has come. Connecting your phone to your kitchen is now beneficial, whether it’s an all-purpose smart cooker like the Brava oven seen here or WiFi-connected appliances that constantly add new functionality.
No 12. Working gardens.

Director of Editorial Special Projects for House Beautiful and expert on all things kitchens Carisha Swanson thinks that “Grow your own stuff will take off next year.” Herb and vegetable gardens that provide for fresh produce will become a dependable element of the kitchen as food costs rise and customers become more conscious of sustainability. (Designer Bunny Williams has been doing this for a while; listen to her advice on establishing a kitchen garden here.)
No 13. Outdoor Kitchens
The last pattern that we expect to continue into the next year? the barbecue area. Over the last several years, covid-induced homeboundness has increased interest in these locations, and it continues to expand. (See how to design the ideal outdoor kitchen here.)
