Glotech, leading designer and distributor of bespoke home interiors, and supplier of all major household appliances is delighted to share the latest trends to hit the UK kitchen market in 2023.
Chris Reeves, Director at Glotech says, “More and more homeowners are appreciating the benefits of tailormade interior design, as the kitchen becomes an integral part of the 2023 home and lifestyle.
This latest appreciation has sparked a new kitchen style called beautility, where aesthetics and ease of use are one in the same. With this in mind, I predict the kitchen living space will be defined by bespoke fitted furniture this year, in a series of signature colour palettes, tactile surfaces, quality raw materials and noteworthy fixtures and fittings.”
INDUSTRIAL INFLUENCE: This year’s in-demand handleless kitchens are defined by the linear appeal of the low maintenance slab door and eye-catching contrasts of mixed materials in everything from surfaces and wall treatments to seating. Inspired by the nation’s enduring penchant for industrial design and integrated appliances, look out for next level concrete finish effects which add visual depth, especially when coupled with fine mosaic-style splashbacks for an iridescent effect, and statement lighting.
ISLAND TAKEOVER: The kitchen island unit will deliver as a next-level prep station and dining area, keeping the home chef at the heart of the action. Extras such as integrated knife holders near the wet zone help ensure that food prep is quick, safe and easy – ideal when cooking for a crowd. Spacious island units will be defined by the very best in durable surfaces and heavy-duty hardware as consumers invest for the long-term in their forever homes.
BESPOKE DESIGN: The painted wood kitchen will be at the forefront of bespoke projects this year, ticking all the boxes for personal style and embracing bolder colour choices.
For example, combining navy blue fitted furniture with exposed bricks will make an impact, as custom kitchens will increasingly set the tone for the whole ground floor, playing to the strengths of the property as a whole. The latest storage solutions are enhancing custom cabinetry to complement the look and feel of the ground floor, extending into laundry and utility rooms for extra storage.
CLASSIC DOORS: A versatile and perennial choice for UK homes, robust Shaker styles are ideal for the busy family kitchen – instantly adding character to a new home and helping to define an open-plan space.
Using different colours to separate working zones will be popular in 2023, as homeowners seek soothing colours to provide a foundation for increased quality time at home as they embrace indoor-outdoor living, hybrid working styles and staycations.
