What’s New with Kitchen Trends in 2023?

About every 10 to 20 years, we see a revolution in kitchen design. This year is shaping up to be one of those times. Kitchen trends in 2023 look nothing like their predecessors, but you’re bound to find something you like for a condo or co-op with these new looks. Whether you’re a property owner or manager in New York City, here’s what’s in demand in the most-used room of the home.

Seeing Double

Improving efficiency and accessibility

Extras of everything are all the rage in kitchens this year to allow multiple people in the household to prepare meals, clean up, and help themselves to snacks. Two sinks – usually one in an island – let one person do dishes while another rinses produce. A second under-counter refrigerator to join the wine fridge makes cold drinks easy for kids to access. Two ovens permit more baking flexibility, and two drawer-style dishwashers give you options for large cleanups or a one-clean-one-dirty routine.

Cocktail and Coffee Bars

Cozy corners for relaxing and entertaining

Separate nooks for coffee, tea, wine, or aperitifs are more popular than ever. If you don’t have space for one in the living area, placing a coffee or cocktail bar near the front of the kitchen will let guests help themselves without interfering in your food prep. Adding a small sink and fridge makes these corners self-sufficient, and it’s easy to see when they need cleaning or restocking.

Rich Colors

No more playing it safe

Sterile white kitchens have gone the way of VHS tapes and ultra frilly furniture upholstery. Instead, dark and saturated colors are on trend for 2023. You’ll see lots of Napoleon blue, deep burgundy, and charcoal gray on cabinetry and walls, with wooden island bases painted as well. Counter slabs are darker as well, and mix-and-match tones and stone patterns are coming into focus.

Nontraditional Backsplashes

Anything goes

Say goodbye to tile backsplashes! In 2023, unconventional materials are showing up behind sinks and stove tops or wrapped around the entire kitchen above the lower counter line. From embossed metal to wallpaper to slate, there’s something to appeal to everyone’s tastes in color, pattern, and texture.

Glamorous Hardware and Fixtures

Luxe metals for an expensive look

Nothing makes the deep rich colors of 2023’s kitchens pop more than bright metal drawer pulls, cabinet handles, and sink fixtures. Gold tones are most common this year, with brass and brushed gold at the top of the list. Sink levers are sleek, one-handed models with taps that allow for things like:

  • – Touchless or hands-free operation
  • – Room for extra large cooking vessels
  • – Pull-out nozzles with different spray patterns, including jet spraying to reduce dish scrubbing
  • – Perfect temperature control
  • – Germ resistance and easy cleaning
  • – Magnetic docking
  • – 360-degree swivel function
  • – Distilled water options for rinsing without hard water residue
  • – Filtration that can be tracked with an app on a personal device, along with water consumption
  • – Restaurant-caliber durability

You’ll see multi-metal finishes too with ombre tones that blend from rose gold to nickel.

Smart and Energy-Efficient Appliances

Upgrades with big bang for your buck

Many New York City condos and co-ops have older appliances, which tend to be energy guzzlers. When upgrading, the new trend is not only towards energy-efficient models, which save on utilities, but also smart appliances that connect with the internet or can be controlled via cell phone. Whether you worry you’ve left the range on or want to hurry a chicken defrosting before coming home, these new appliances put everything right at your fingertips, even if you’re miles away.

Slim Storage and Appliances

Making use of every inch

New York City units are known for having space limitations. There’s no need to waste space with kitchen designs that maximize the given space in any kitchen. For example, pull-out storage can fill narrow spots between cabinets or appliances and hold jarred food, spice racks, cooking utensils, baking sheets, oils, sauces, wine, or other slim items. Small microwaves and convection ovens tuck neatly into what would be wasted space above the refrigerator. Replacing countertop appliance garages are under-counter lifts for mixers, coffee makers, toasters, and other small appliances that are used regularly but create clutter when out all the time.

Pantries, Mudrooms, and Sculleries

A New York City alternative to open space kitchens

In single-family homes, open space kitchens are all the rage right now, but achieving that floor plan in New York City, especially in pre-war buildings, can be tough. So, condo and co-op owners and their architects are getting creative with the space they do have. They’re converting small hallways, back bedrooms, and closets to butler’s pantries, food storage areas, and mudrooms for pets and outdoor kid stuff. There, they have space for items like:

  • – Bulk food purchases
  • – Awkward countertop appliances
  • – Collections of vintage and antique servingware
  • – Large vases and seasonal decorations
  • – Wine cellars
  • – Cleaning supplies
  • – Stackable or two-in-one laundry appliances
  • – High chairs, booster seats, and strollers
  • – Coats, boots, and umbrellas
  • – Pet leashes, bowls, and beds

If they can swing it, adding a sink is super convenient for everything messy, from pet bathing to flower arranging, out of the way of regular kitchen traffic.
