Gemini Worktops

Whether you're renovating your entire kitchen or just looking to update a few key elements, say Gemini Worktops, awareness of the latest trends for 2023 can help you create a space that not only meets your needs but also reflects your personal style.

From bold colour palettes to smart technology, the Top 10 kitchen trends for 2023 will inspire you to create a kitchen that's both beautiful and functional. So let's review those key trends ... Top 10 kitchen trends for 2023

1. Bold colour palettes

Say goodbye to bland neutral kitchens, and hello to bold, colourful kitchens. Whether it's a statement wall in a bright hue or a mix of contrasting colours in your cabinetry, don't be afraid to incorporate some colour into your kitchen design. Gemini expects to see a trend toward a more brave mix of different styles and strong colours.

2. Mixed metals

Mixing metal finishes is a trend that's here to stay. From brushed nickel to brass, incorporating different metal finishes in your kitchen creates a layered and interesting look. The concept involves incorporating different metal finishes, such as stainless steel, brass, copper, and bronze, into a single kitchen design. This trend is a way to add interest, texture and a touch of luxury to your kitchen.

3. Smart technology

Smart technology has been making its way into kitchens - and this trend is set to continue in 2023. From refrigerators that keep track of your groceries to hobs with built-in extractor fans, smart technology can make cooking and meal planning a breeze.

4. Textured surfaces

Textured surfaces like concrete, stone and wood bring warmth and interest to kitchens. This trend is not only beautiful but also practical, as textured surfaces are more durable and easier to clean.


Despite the long-standing tradition of stone in kitchen spaces, more and more kitchens are featuring natural stone like quartz as a primary feature. Kitchens are increasingly featuring dramatic stones and marble waterfall islands that highlight the material's natural beauty, helping to add natural textures to the space.

5. Two-Toned Cabinetry

Two-toned cabinetry is a popular trend for 2023. This trend allows you to mix and match different colours or finishes for a unique and personalised look.
The two-toned trend is a great way to add depth and interest to your kitchen cabinets without going overboard with colour. It's also a way to create a bold statement, especially if you choose to mix two contrasting colours.

6. Open Shelving

Open shelving continues to be a popular trend in kitchen design. Not only does it provide a stylish way to store and display your dishes and décor but it gives you the freedom to personalise your space - as well as creating a focal point in your kitchen.

7. Natural Materials

Natural materials like wood, stone and concrete bring a sense of warmth and organic beauty to kitchens. These materials are also durable, making them a practical choice for high-use areas like the kitchen. You can keep it current by mixing wood with painted cabinets and embracing natural wood grain instead of glossy varnish and heavy stains. Natural materials and earthy tones add a unique look to your kitchen creating a kitchen aesthetic that is warm and welcoming.  

8. Integrated appliances and power outlets

Integrated appliances like refrigerators and dishwashers that blend seamlessly into cabinetry are becoming increasingly popular. This trend not only enhances the overall look of your kitchen but also helps to minimise clutter and free up valuable counter space. A power outlet placed under the cabinets, rather than in the splashback, reduces cord clutter behind small appliances and gives them a cleaner appearance.

9. Bold splashbacks

Splashbacks are a great way to add colour, texture and pattern to the kitchen. Bold and graphic splashbacks, in bright hues or eye-catching patterns, are a trend to watch for 2023. The trend toward marble slab splashbacks is gaining popularity - which adds drama and depth to the kitchen. In addition to being easier to clean than tile, marble splashbacks and countertops set a stylish tone for the entire room.

10. Multifunctional islands

Kitchen islands are more than just a place to chop vegetables. Multifunctional islands that include storage, seating and additional counter space are a popular trend for 2023. A kitchen island can serve many purposes, from providing additional counter space to serving as a dining table or a place to store kitchen appliances.

Clearly, the kitchen is an essential part of your home and it's important to keep up with the latest trends to ensure it's both functional and stylish. The top 10 kitchen trends for 2023 offer a range of ideas and styles to inspire you, from bold colour palettes to smart technology.
