As the new year approaches, many of us are laying out our plans for the year ahead. The twelve months of 2023 pose a good opportunity for home renovations. In particular, you may want to focus on your kitchen. This is the heart of the home. It’s where we prepare our meals. For some of us, it’s the space we eat in. It’s where we chat with family. It’s where friends gather at parties. It’s not all too surprising that you will want yours to be as functional and aesthetically pleasing as possible. Here are some of the top kitchen renovations you may want to consider for your own kitchen space.
Natural Color Schemes
Trends come and go and, as you may be aware, different color schemes gain popularity and lose popularity over time. For 2023, natural color schemes are expected to reign supreme. So, why not start browsing some natural color palettes and choose the right option for your own interiors? Some popular options include shades of ocean blue or mint / sage / olive green. Neutrals are also popular, so why not consider earthy colors like sand or natural tones like mushrooms?
New Kitchen Cabinets
Cabinets form a major visual element of every kitchen. Of course, you need this part of your kitchen to be highly functional. They should be sufficiently large and, ideally, have multiple shelves. But you also need to make sure that they match the overall aesthetic of your space. There are countless options out there. Just look at Leileier for some quality examples. Factors to consider include color, finish (such as wood or gloss) and what type of handles you like.
Marble is back in. Whether that’s marble countertops, marble splashbacks behind the hob or even marble flooring. Marble works well in kitchens, as it naturally remains cooler than at room temperature. It makes a great surface in an otherwise hot space. It is important, however, to make sure that you don’t put hot pots or pans directly on marble countertops, as it isn't completely heat resistant, which could result in damage to the counter. It is also important to make sure that you properly seal any marble used in your kitchen. Marble can be particularly prone to staining agents (such as wine, juice and oil), which can easily seep deep into the rock.
Pet Feeding Stations
Do you have cats, dogs or other free-roaming animals in your home? Rather than leaving bowls scattered around the floor, you could provide them with a pet feeding station. This makes their food and water bowls look more aesthetic and can also help to keep food and water in one, specific location, reducing chances of spills and other issues.
Rather than sticking to one metal finish in your kitchen, you may want to try mixed metals. Bronze, brass, nickel and rose gold-tone finishes create a rich and inviting aesthetic to your space.
These are just a few expected trends for the twelve months ahead. Hopefully, some of the options outlined above will work well in your kitchen!
