The new year is right around the corner, and in 2023, be on the lookout for some new and exciting kitchen remodeling trends. At Home Improvements Unlimited LLC, we’re watching these four trends below, and we expect to be seeing more of these in the many Columbus homes we renovate this year.
In the kitchen, smart technology continues to become increasingly popular. Many smart appliances can connect to wifi and be controlled via a smartphone app. Smart technology refrigerators can recognize and manage items stored inside using the item’s barcode. Touchless kitchen faucets can be installed to avoid spreading germs. Not only do these types of smart appliances save time, but they are also more energy-efficient than traditional ones.
We’re also seeing organic aesthetics becoming more prevalent throughout homes as well as kitchens. Many homeowners are opting for natural stone countertops, wood cabinetry and storage, eco-friendly materials, and metal accents. Not only is this trend influencing kitchen design but also how we use our kitchens. Instead of plastic, individuals are choosing glass storage bowls, wood trays and platters, and stainless steel garbage cans.
While a functional pantry, also known as a butler’s pantry, was the norm in 18th-century formal households, they are starting to make quite the comeback. These transitional spaces between kitchens and dining rooms can serve a wide array of purposes such as additional storage, dedicated space for serving food, or a tea and coffee bar. Plus, you can remodel your home so they can be part of an open floor plan, or build them to be hidden behind a sliding door.
Islands for Dining
Rather than creating a formal dining room, many homeowners are choosing to install large kitchen islands that are built specifically for dining. Home entertaining is very popular and a large, expansive kitchen island is the ideal piece of furniture for hosting dinner parties, celebrating family birthdays, or enjoying a meal with family and friends. Hosts can cook and prep food while guests gather around the island and chat, drink, or help with the meal.
