Best Kitchen Design Practices for Your Mississauga Home
Below are the top kitchen design trends to follow for kitchen renovation in 2023.
1. Use of Bold Colours
While white may continue to be a great option for the kitchen this year, you may also expect to see kitchens in more colours.
Homeowners are adopting warmer tones as well as bold pops of colours instead of a monochromatic colour scheme. Expect to see lots of saturated and organic colours in all areas of your space, including cabinets and countertops. Where white and greys are used, we expect to see them warmed up compared to previous years. For instance, creamy whites and warm greys will feature prominently.
2. Use Natural Materials
There has been increasing use of natural elements such as wood cabinets and metal accents in the last few years. This is because they are long-lasting, eco-friendly, and easy to maintain. This makes them an excellent choice for those who want a kitchen that will stand the test of time. They also have a timeless appeal that never goes out of style. This makes them ideal for your kitchen, as they will continue to look beautiful and fresh for years to come.
Stone countertops are also becoming popular. For example, quartz and granite will be used on countertops, backsplashes, and fireplace surrounds. Also, glass or wood bowls as well as wood storage containers are mostly used in place of plastic.
3. Go for Dual-Tone Cabinets
Dual-tone kitchen cabinets are a unique design trend in kitchen cabinetry where both the lower and upper cabinets are painted in different colours or finishes. This creates a visually appealing contrast that adds depth and style to your kitchen space.
There are several ways to achieve a dual-tone look in your kitchen. For instance, you may paint your upper cabinets one colour and the lower ones, another. Or you can choose a different finish for each, such as a glossy upper cabinet and a matte lower one. You can also select different shades of the same colour for a cohesive, subtle look.
4. Choose Open Kitchen Style
Many homeowners want to replace their closed upper cabinets by choosing open shelving. Replacing upper cabinets with these open shelves is a great option to save money and add style to your space. This open-shelf cabinetry also helps keep the kitchen looking clean and uncluttered.
5. Adopting Smart Technology
Smart technology is widely used in homes, including kitchens. This includes kitchen appliances that may be connected to Wi-Fi or controlled by a smartphone, voice-activated kitchen appliances, and so on. Undoubtedly, smart kitchens are not just convenient but help save time and energy as most smart appliances are more energy efficient than their traditional counterparts.
6. Choose Slab Backsplashes
Traditional tile backsplashes are being replaced by chic slab ones. This slab backsplash is made from one piece of large material and may be easily matched to the countertops.
Like countertops, granite and quartz are the two most popular slab options. These backsplashes are not only beautiful, they are also quite functional. Using the same material in the backsplash as the kitchen countertop creates a clean, seamless look.
7. Use of Bold Hardware
Homeowners are looking for ways to add interest and texture to their kitchens. This can include using bold and colourful cabinet knobs, handles, and even faucets.
There are several benefits to choosing bold hardware for your kitchen. For one, it can improve the room’s look and add cohesiveness to the space. Bold hardware is often larger and more easily noticeable than traditional hardware. It is also easier to grip and use, thereby making your kitchen more functional.
