As we take a mid-year look at kitchen design trends, we’re finding that bold choices continue to be a theme in 2023. By incorporating lots of natural stone, contrasting materials and bold colors, 2023 kitchen design is full of beautiful surprises.

Here are four trends we think are spectacular:

  1. High Contrast
    The white kitchen is taking a bold turn, shifting away from all white by adding bold accents of black, navy or deep green. The classic white kitchen is becoming bold with eye-catching pops of color.
  2. Double Islands
    Kitchens are getting larger, the traditional formal dining room is disappearing, and to make more functional space in the kitchen, homeowners are choosing larger islands or double islands. While islands have been a trend for many years, the double islands offer more work space, additional seating and more space for entertaining in the kitchen.
  3. Stone as the Dramatic Focal Point
    Stone, of course, has a long-standing place in kitchens, but this trend uses beautiful stone, sometimes with dramatic designs, not only on countertops, but also on backsplashes and waterfall islands. The striking beauty of the stone fills the space and makes it the centerpiece and focal point of the kitchen. The effect can be achieved with natural stones like granite or marble or with manufactured stones like porcelain and quartz.
  4. Mixing Colors and Woods
    We’ve seen painted cabinets with unexpected and interesting color choices for a while now, and the current trend builds on that by adding accents of natural wood. Bringing in natural wood tones changes the look of the room and gives it a more natural and organic feel.

As you plan your kitchen renovation, we invite you to visit one of our showrooms, in Haverhill, MA or West Bridgewater, MA, to see the many and varied types and styles of stone. We travel the world in search of the most beautiful stones and we have options to suit every taste and budget including granite, marble, quartzite, soapstone, Laminam porcelain and quartz from The BGE Quartz Collection.

We look forward to your visit – seeing the stones in person is, by far, the best way to make your selection.
