As we step into 2023, the world of kitchen design is experiencing a shift towards embracing nature, calmness, and functionality. If you’re considering a kitchen renovation/remodel in Australia (or locally here in Adelaide), it’s essential to be aware of the top design trends that are shaping the kitchens of today and the future.

At By Urban, we specialise in multi-faceted spaces using a collaborative approach to create beautiful custom designed kitchens, bathrooms & ensuites that enhance your home and life. We are at the forefront of these trends, offering innovative solutions to transform your kitchen into a stylish and functional space.

Firstly though, let’s list some honourable mentions regarding trends:

Trend 1: Calming Aesthetics

In 2023, Australian homeowners are seeking peace and tranquility in their kitchen spaces. The focus has (for the most part) shifted away from showy, picture-perfect designs to more natural and simple interior choices. By Urban recognises this trend and offers kitchen renovations that incorporate elements like plants, inherited pieces, and calming colors, including blues, greens, and sandy neutrals. Their expertise in blending these elements can help you achieve a serene and stress-free environment in your kitchen.

Trend 2: Multi-Use Kitchen Spaces

The post-COVID world has led to a renewed emphasis on the kitchen as the central hub of the home. By Urban understands that the kitchen is no longer just for cooking; it has become a multi-functional space for various activities like work meetings, family hangouts, and socialising. Our award-winning team and our kitchen remodellers prioritise creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere that caters to different needs, making it a versatile space that adapts to your lifestyle.

Trend 3: Sustainability and Eco-Friendly Features

The 2023 Houzz Australia Kitchen Trends Study shows that sustainability remains a top priority for homeowners undertaking kitchen renovations. By Urban addresses this concern by incorporating energy-efficient appliances, water-saving fixtures, and LED lighting in their kitchen designs. They also prioritize timeless design choices, reducing waste and ensuring longevity in the overall kitchen design. At By Urban, we also make sure this applies to our bathroom renovations and any other room in your house.
