Part 2 of Our Blog: What's Out in 2023

Today we will continue our list of the twelve kitchen design trends which seem to be going away in 2023 (well, according to the experts and interior designers.) Here are trends 5 - 8 which supposedly will be trending out this year.

Trend #5 - Faux Finishes

2023 is all about keeping it real in the kitchen. Faux anything (i.e. quartz that looks like marble) is definitely a fading kitchen trend for the luxury consumer in 2023. For the discerning client, natural stone for floors, countertops, and backsplash is the only way to go. It is a classic look for the kitchen that transcends trends. These finishes will serve homeowners better in the long run. Because of its longevity, it is also a sustainable choice. With minimal maintenance, it can outlast much of the other elements in a kitchen.

Trend #6 - Herringbone Backsplashes

Herringbone backsplashes came back in around the time herringbone flooring did a few years ago, but this style’s days are numbered. Keep in mind that herringbone patterns while good for a floor, are not as great for a backsplash, as it can look too busy and make your space seem cluttered. To fully appreciate the herringbone design, you really need to use it over a large area.

Trend #7 - Carrera Marble

This is another hot topic because Carrera marble, while beautiful and beloved by almost everyone, has become almost annoyingly over-done. So, in 2023, we’re likely to see a lot less of it. Also, classic Carrera has changed so much now and it’s hard to find a good slab. There are so many white marbles, but since most super expensive, Carrera can be good for a budget. Unfortunately it’s not considered as beautiful as other white marbles out there.

Trend #8 - Appliances Over The Stove/Range

Installing a microwave over the range has been the standard for many years, but now that standard is changing. Making a fabulous design feature out of the space above your range far outweighs the utilitarian trend of using that area to house an appliance. Some people might say it's a shame not to claim this upper cabinet section for added storage. Use your imagination if you choose to move your microwave elsewhere.

The Last Four Trends

In our final installment, we will explore the last 4 trends that seem to be on their way out for 2023. Stay tuned over the next week for the last four trends.
