The kitchen, for many, is the heart of the home and while it’s a functional space, it is no longer simply a space to cook, it is a space to entertain, socialise and above all - spend quality time with family and friends. Now more than ever, the kitchen trends for 2023 need to be multi-functional spaces that can be used for work as well as leisure with many more of us working from home than ever before. Of course, décor plays an integral role in the look and feel of your kitchen.
Whether you want to tweak your kitchen design to keep it in line with the trends or fancy a complete overhaul, we’ve got the low down on the need-to-know kitchen trends for 2023 and some tips on how to incorporate them into your own home.
Functional and Family Friendly

The way we use our kitchens has evolved in the last couple of years and rather than a utilitarian space reserved to prepare meals, it has become the social heart of the home. As a result, one of the biggest kitchen trends for 2023 surrounds designs that embrace functional and family-friendly living. We’re talking about double islands designed with family meals and social gatherings in mind and breakfast bars that double up as workspaces. Dual kitchen islands are becoming increasingly popular options for families that love to host allowing guests to gather around and food be served without having to be restricted to a formal dining table.
This family focussed kitchen design trend includes every member of the family right down to your treasured family pet with stylish pet-feeding stations being incorporated into kitchen redesigns. Goodbye unsightly dog food and water bowls, hello seamless built-in feeding station.
Curved Corners Are Incoming

If it’s one thing that kitchens are often synonymous with, it’s sharp edges. You’ll find them everywhere from your countertops and seating to your kitchen island and cupboards and they don’t stop there. Curved corners are one of the hottest interior trends for 2023 and they not only help you to create a softer and more inviting space but also add a practical touch for new parents wanting to eliminate pesky sharp corners from their kitchen design.
Showstopping curved kitchen islands and countertops instantly make an impact but if you are looking for a pocket-friendly way to introduce curves into your interiors, curved bar stools, hardware and lighting is an affordable way to tap into the trend without a complete kitchen redesign.
Kitchen trends for 2023 include black kitchen designs

Colour drenching is where you use one singular colour in different shades, textures and finishes to decorate a room and this season we’re seeing this come to life in the form of all-black kitchen designs. Black is a daunting colour choice for many homeowners and this trend of layering black on black is not for the faint-hearted. The key to this trend is to create visual interest by incorporating a variety of different textures and tones to distinguish the different elements of your cooking space. For example, a black marble kitchen island will stand out from matte black cupboards and brushed metallic hardware. Glossy black tiles paired with porcelain countertops add a hint of luxury and complement a bold black splashback.
Not ready to commit fully to an all-black kitchen? Our Black Marble Effect Wall Mural is an easy and stylish option for those who wish to try out the black kitchen trend. Complete the look with black appliances.
Metallics are Still Having a Moment

Brass and gold accents are set to be a huge trend for the year ahead which is great news for interior lovers who want to upgrade their kitchen without spending a fortune. Metallic finishes can make a stunning impact when paired with bold coloured kitchens but also work well with neutral colour schemes. There’s nothing like striking brass details to really bring out the colour of your cabinetry. Introducing metallic hardware is just one way to try out this trend. A metallic bar cart is an on-trend yet functional addition to any kitchen if you are wanting to achieve this trend via accessories. You can also opt for a metallic wall mural in your kitchen to create a bold backdrop and breathe new life into a tired kitchen design.
We adore the Deco Tulips wall mural that features gold tulips against a black background. There’s no simpler way to add luxury and class to your kitchen. This design would work well as a feature wall in your kitchen as well as a way to decorate a backsplash.
Bold Splashbacks Are Making a Comeback

Perhaps the most exciting trend on our list is the resurgence of kitchen wallpaper. Bold backsplashes are back on the scene and thanks to our range of wall murals, it’s never been simpler to turn your kitchen into an on-trend space. We love this marble wallpaper trend for so many reasons. Firstly, it’s a low-commitment way to experiment with some daring colours and prints but also because it allows the kitchen to blend seamlessly with the rest of the rooms in your home.
By using wall murals and wallpaper in your kitchen, this room effortlessly becomes an extension of your living space. Moody colour themes, marble prints and rich textures are all set to be bang on kitchen trends for 2023 and our white marble wall mural can’t fail to make a statement.
So, there you have it, five of the hottest interior trends heading your way in 2023.
