Blue and brown modern kitchen

The kitchen is one of the most frequently visited rooms, as it's both a cooking area and, in more and more homes, a social space.

This year's kitchen trends are all about blending contemporary and timeless styles to create a space that's functional, stylish, and welcoming. At Luminesy, we're thrilled to share the top kitchen design trends for 2023 with you!


Colors That Pop

It would be easy to draw attention to the color of the year, Viva Magenta (PANTONE 18-1750), but fortunately, 2023 kitchen trends are more forgiving when it comes to color. Choosing the right combination has never been more important than this year!

From vibrant reds to rich blues and deep greens, colorful kitchen accents add personality and character to your space. Even better, you can mix and match hues to create your own unique color palette. Whether you want a warm and inviting atmosphere or a cool and modern vibe, the right color choices can make all the difference.

Unexpected Materials Blend Well Together

Goodbye to safe, traditional material combinations! The 2023 kitchen design trends are dominated by surprising combinations. Mixing tiles and finishes, combining multiple stones, painted and natural wood finishes has become fashionable.

The combination of brick with tile trim, various metals, and natural stones with lovely wood grain may also look fantastic and give your kitchen a unique, exciting look and feel. Green marble is a popular choice this year, as it adds a touch of natural elegance to any kitchen design.


Freestanding Kitchen Islands

The home office has completely changed the idea of the kitchen in recent years, creating a new role as a multi-functional space for cooking, working, and socializing. Freestanding islands provide ample space for all of these activities while adding a striking visual element to your kitchen design.

In 2023, consider incorporating two freestanding islands for an even bolder statement. This configuration allows for maximum flexibility and functionality, making it ideal for entertaining guests or cooking with family members.

Sustainable Lighting

If you're going in a more sumptuous direction with furniture trends, it's especially important to balance it out with the right kitchen lighting. Kitchen design trends for 2023 focus on large yet airy shapes and often translucent geometric forms.

While metal and wood solutions are evergreen options, sustainable lighting has never been more fashionable. Bamboo, recycled plastic, and carton paper are all materials that not simply look good but also add an extra layer of eco-friendliness to your home. These materials have a much lower environmental impact during manufacturing or can be reused more frequently, like plastic. Choose products that come from a reliable, verifiable source.

In addition to large, adjustable lamps, the asymmetrical arrangement of light sources is a fashionable solution. Light is not only a practical element, it can also be the most beautiful decoration. Use warm light to draw your guests' attention to the best parts of your kitchen.

At Luminesy, we believe that your kitchen should reflect your unique personality and style. By incorporating these top kitchen design trends for 2023, you can create a space that's both functional and fashionable.
