As we enter a new year, it's time to take a look at the kitchen trends that are on their way out. While some design elements have stood the test of time, others have become outdated and are ready to be replaced. Whether you're planning a kitchen remodel or simply want to stay up to date with the latest trends, here are some kitchen features that you may want to reconsider in 2023.

1. Open Shelving

Open shelving has been a popular trend in recent years, but it's starting to lose its appeal. While it can create an open and airy feel in the kitchen, it also means that all your dishes and kitchenware are on display. This can lead to a cluttered look and the need for constant organization. In 2023, homeowners are opting for closed cabinets to keep their kitchen looking clean and streamlined.

2. All-White Kitchens

The all-white kitchen trend has been a staple for many years, but it's time to say goodbye to this monochromatic look. While white kitchens can create a bright and clean aesthetic, they can also feel sterile and lack personality. In 2023, homeowners are embracing more color in their kitchens, whether it's through painted cabinets, colorful backsplashes, or vibrant appliances.

3. Granite Countertops

Granite countertops have long been a popular choice for kitchen surfaces, but they are starting to fall out of favor. While granite is durable and heat-resistant, it can be expensive and requires regular maintenance. In 2023, homeowners are opting for alternative materials such as quartz, marble, or even concrete for their countertops.

4. Over-the-Range Microwaves

Over-the-range microwaves have been a convenient space-saving solution for many kitchens, but they are becoming less popular in 2023. These microwaves can be bulky and take up valuable cabinet space. Instead, homeowners are choosing to incorporate built-in microwaves into their kitchen design or opting for countertop models.

5. Subway Tile Backsplashes

Subway tile backsplashes have been a go-to choice for many homeowners, but they are starting to feel overused and predictable. In 2023, homeowners are looking for more unique and eye-catching backsplash options. From geometric patterns to colorful mosaic tiles, there are plenty of alternatives to subway tile that can add personality to your kitchen.

6. Stainless Steel Appliances

Stainless steel appliances have been a staple in modern kitchens, but they are losing their popularity in 2023. While stainless steel is sleek and easy to clean, it can show fingerprints and smudges easily. Homeowners are now opting for appliances in alternative finishes such as black stainless steel, matte black, or even custom paneling to match the cabinetry.

7. Kitchen Islands with Seating

While kitchen islands with seating have been a popular feature in many homes, they are starting to lose their appeal in 2023. These islands can take up a significant amount of space and can make the kitchen feel crowded. Instead, homeowners are opting for more functional and space-efficient kitchen layouts that prioritize storage and workspace.

As with any trend, it's important to remember that personal preference should always come first. While these kitchen trends may be going out of style, if you love them and they work for your lifestyle, there's no reason to give them up. Ultimately, the most important thing is to create a kitchen that you love and that serves your needs.

Interesting! English homes tend to be much smaller than American homes so we are very tight on space as it is. It is nice for a large kitchen with a lot of circulation space though! :)


Baloney on losing the island’s with seating! As long as open concept is desired seating at an island is necessary. Storage on both sides of an island works.
