The Modern House: New Trends for 2023 Kitchens
Colors of nature, eclectic materials, revisited styles, futuristic technology: the 2023 modern kitchens transform the most lived-in place of the house into an aesthetically refined environment to be experienced and shown.
The design works according to practicality to make the kitchen always easier to clean and to keep in order, but at the same time, it creates new trends in 2023 kitchens to attract the eye and make the convivium the fulcrum of the whole house.
More often than part of an open-plan living area, the 2023 modern kitchens are elegant, original, and with an industrial touch.
The island must be this year: operational or not; it is a temptation that few can resist. The new trend is undoubtedly the waterfall worktop, or the continuation of the top even on the sides of the island, down to the ground, for a minimal effect to leave you speechless. Above the island, a design hood cannot be missed: the old chimney shapes are banned, and the hood becomes an actual work of art with extravagant suspension shapes.
Special attention also to the opening systems: the handles disappear definitively to make room for foldaway, light, and dynamic doors. Indeed, in some cases, the entire kitchen is hidden, with large sliding doors, like a simple built-in wardrobe.
Also, the increasingly technological and interconnected appliances are masked by the return of built-in refrigerators and small appliances inside wall units and furniture.
On the other hand, the pottery becomes very evident, thanks to shelves, sideboards, visible showcases, and the Pasquini, with asymmetric large-sized slabs of stoneware that surpass the traditional horizontal splashback.
Small details become essential in a modern kitchen: led under-cabinet lights, sink integrated into the top, extendable faucets, contemporary elements combined with vintage ones, and eclectic tables revolutionize the environment’s mood, making it personal, functional, and sophisticated.
Modern Kitchen Color Trends
Lakes, forests, sea, and land: the modern kitchen color trends bring the nuances and scents of nature into the home for an enveloping and reassuring effect.
The new entry of the year is blue. From ultramarine shades to denim, from navy blue to azure, blue gives an elegant and vintage touch to the kitchen, combining perfectly with marble, wood, and warm colors, such as caramel.
On the other hand, green is a color that never goes out of fashion, but in 2022-2023 it becomes predominant in its sage, dark, Veronese, forest, English, and petroleum variants. Refined and chic, it enhances oak and walnut kitchens and can also be used for walls, carpets, and furnishing accessories.
The material nuances also manifest themselves in warm colors. For example, the 2023 kitchen color trend sees caramel-colored bronze, gold, apricot, terracotta, and rust combined with light and white wood.
A separate chapter for the black kitchen is also always trendy this year—a risky choice but elegant and sophisticated, perfect for fashion addicts.
The watchword for the kitchen color trends is to personalize the spaces by daring with the color. So what is the definitive end of the total white mood?
Modern Kitchen Material Trends
The industrial-type kitchen also influences the modern and classic style of the materials. The material trends of modern kitchens see concrete as the undisputed protagonist. Cement tops, shelves, tables, or doors transform the environment with originality, making it young and contemporary.
Concrete goes very well with metal, another trend of 2023. Modern kitchens with corten effect, covered with gold or silver leaf, or brass details, such as faucets and sinks, are perfect for those who love the minimal but innovative and extravagant style. Steel is also timeless for a kitchen with a professional flavor, extremely resistant, clean, and linear.
Another must-have of the season is the marble. Precious, sophisticated and resistant, it is chosen for the kitchen top or to cover the entire island, transforming it into a monolithic element. White, black, or gray goes very well with wood for an elegant and chic kitchen.
Whatever the trends in modern kitchens, it is important never to lose sight of one’s personal taste for a conscious choice that will last over time.

Summon – what are the latest trends in kitchen design and decor? Two parallel trends in contemporary kitchen design are based on this season and their distinction in the material selection. The first tendency is based on traditional craftsmanship and a natural atmosphere. It requires a lot of craftsmanship and handy work materials, simple and clean silhouettes with row times that preserve the minimalist appearance of modern furniture design without too much decoration and ornaments. The wood elements dominate this trendy kitchen design, even if connected and displayed as a laminate of parquet surfaces. Typical examples of this trend in modern kitchen design are the projects of DeVol,
The other trend this season is the contrasting design methods – with high-tech innovations of materials and surfaces, the designers create large and massive volumes with shiny surfaces and simple shapes. Here we can also observe the presence of wooden elements, but in these cases, they are more than additions and artistic details not used as a leading material choice. Dark colors and contrasts are also outstanding. The kitchen designs by Mina and bulthaup are a wonderful representation of this trend.
Inspired by the iconic Airstream Caravans, the inspiration defines the soft curves and retro-contemporary feel of the Air Kitchen project. Aluminum panels, polished studs, and futuristic push-to-open doors with a closed surface are just a few charming features. In addition, the designers used the most up-to-date eco-friendly materials, easy-care textures, and bright colors adorned with small warm oak details and framing.
The soft and smooth curves that characterize the silhouette of the caravan and the iconic round openings define the vintage twist of the otherwise futuristic and modern look of Air Kitchen’s design. Sleek stainless steel legs or a matching cabinet base that gives them the appearance of a floating, bright color scheme and massive volumes add to the exciting sense of space and airiness in this modern kitchen designed and built in the UK.
Speaking of lightness and style, here is another unique and charming kitchen design by DeVol with plaited beechwood panels and a clean-lined silhouette. Simple, functional, and elegant, this kitchen island can be used in several design arrangements.
Here is a similar kitchen island-shaped frame designed by Pattina Kitchen for Sanwa Company, Japan, featuring a matte black frame, a rough wood grain pattern, and an Italian ceramic tile worktop. The composition has a simple, straightforward line structure with a certain elegance and modern look, a touch of retro design, and an “old-fashioned” spirit.
Minimalist and innovative, the b2 is inspired by the golden rule of craftsmanship: “Tools and materials must always be kept clean and within reach.” The kitchen premise is an experimental factory. The functional organization principle of the design reduces the kitchen to three sculptural elements: the kitchen cabinet, the workbench, and the kitchen cabinet. Due to the flexibility, the elegant silhouette, and the innovative charm of these features, bulthaup b2 also adapts to new spatial conditions and diverse design options.
This season Minacciolo introduces Minà – a novel, bold rust finish for the kitchen design. An inventive reminder of the vintage look in the Italian tradition. This exceptional material selection offers a highly textured reddish-brown rust effect that is retro but decidedly contemporary. The multi-purpose island of Minà has a special treatment that gives it a unique aged look and attractive texture. Artistic custom buttons and details add to the vintage charm of the montage. The tall cabinets are reminiscent of ice boxes from the early 20th century, and the warm red accents add a cozy nuance to the premises.
Another novelty is reminiscent of the tradition of Italian master craftsmen in this playfully arranged worktop, which is part of the kitchen project Minà. The designer has created a combination of tradition, retro tips, and cutting-edge technology and has made a multifunctional island with an artistic and dynamic pattern. Mina has a tin-studded steel worktop combined with a lava-stone tiled breakfast bar. The exquisite craftsmanship of the island consists of Sicilian glazed volcanic stone slabs over a water-repellent surface: innovative, artistic, and brings back the rich texture and color effect in the kitchen.
