Nothing sells a house like a gorgeous kitchen. Potential buyers look at kitchens first. This is due to a few reasons. One, the kitchen is known to many as the heart of the home. Two, nothing catches your eye quicker than a well-designed kitchen. And three, the kitchen is one of the most costly things to renovate, so finding a home where this is already done is a significant win. If you consider listing your home in this seller’s market, you will want to prepare your kitchen. Here are my fav five kitchen trends right now to help you visualize the potential of your home.
1. Stylish Kitchen Island
A big kitchen island is not going away any time soon! And the bigger, the better.
These centrepieces do a fantastic job drawing the eye in, especially with bold paint colours, striking countertops, and unique elements like built-in drawer microwaves or the latest trend – pet feeding stations. Tip: Want to bring your island into 2023 on a budget? Paint your existing island! This can inject colour without the costly gut job.
2. Stone Countertops
Classic looks that transcend trends will be in for 2023. For countertops, that means more natural, expressive stone. Bold, veined, and streaky marble will also make a statement in 2023, especially on a waterfall kitchen island! Its longevity makes it a durable and sustainable choice at the top of most buyers’ minds.
3. Slab Backsplashes
Goodbye, old grout that always needs to be cleaned and hello, large sleek slabs! Traditional white subway tiles are on the way out, and seamless quartz, soapstone, marble, and granite slabs are in. Carrying the countertop to the backsplash creates a continuous, clean sightline for a classic and simple look that’s truly beautiful. Looks aside, those who keep the home tidy can only love its low maintenance.
4. High-tech Appliances
Technology has made its way into the kitchen, with more and more homeowners investing in smart appliances. This is one of the more expensive but loved changes in the kitchen. From fridges that can order groceries to ovens that can be controlled with your smartphone, the future of kitchens is innovative.
5. Illuminating Light
The kitchen is the heart of the home. The proper lighting is critical to illuminating the style and faces you love most. There are many different lighting options for your kitchen, from decorative and task to ambient and accent. A good lighting plan will optimize the locations and usage of each to maximize the light and love in your space. Key lighting trends for 2023 focus on layered lighting plans and statement lighting pieces.
2023 is full of beautiful and long-lasting kitchen trends. Whatever kitchen decor trends you want to bring into your home, always ensure they align with your overall design aesthetic. That way, you can truly reflect the overall charm of your home and the potential it deserves.
