Are you planning to remodel your kitchen and looking for the latest kitchen cabinet and appliance trends? In this article, you will find our top discoveries from this year's Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS 2023), including the kitchen cabinet and appliance trends that impressed us the most.

At Custom Kitchens, we understand the challenges of kitchen remodeling.

Top Kitchen Cabinet Trends from KBIS 2023

Design Trends

At KBIS 2023, our team was impressed by the addition of detail in kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts. While Shaker-style cabinets are popular for their clean, minimalist look, the industry is slowly shifting towards styles with a bit more visual interest. For example, Nickels’ Maine or Harmoni’s Carlisle door add elements to the traditional shaker style while still maintaining a classic look. We also expect kitchen cabinetry hardware to play a vital role in kitchen personalization. Not only can it make your space unique, but it can amplify the design style you're after.

Kitchen Cabinet Color Trends

We are seeing kitchen spaces become more personalized through the use of color. While white and wood are still the foundation of many kitchens, the use of color in cabinetry is gaining popularity. Subdued choices, such as deep charcoal, farmhouse red and navy blue, along with bolder and brighter colors (fuschia, turquoise, bright green) are being chosen by homeowners ready to inject personality in their space. These choices when paired with contrasting hardware make for a very striking and unique space.

Overall, the top kitchen cabinet trends from KBIS 2023 revealed a move towards more personalized and expressive designs. Whether you follow these color trends or go for more intricate door finishes and textures, our goal at Custom Kitchens is to help you create a design that truly reflects your personality and style.

What's Trending in Kitchen Appliances?

One of the biggest trends at KBIS 2023 was smart appliances, such as the GE Cafe Smart Appliances line. Smart appliances allow you to download updates, giving you access to the latest features and functionality as they become available without replacing your appliances. Some features added to the GE Cafe Smart Appliances line include Air Fry technology, Steakhouse mode, and Dehydrate mode, making your oven or range multi-functional. Additionally, the ovens feature an in-oven camera that allows you to monitor the status of your food from your smartphone.

Another prominent trend this year is customization. This trend reflects the growing importance of personalization in kitchen design as homeowners seek to create spaces that are both functional and unique to their aesthetics. This level of in-depth personalization is made possible by True Appliances. The brand offers various colors and hardware finishes, allowing you to customize your appliances to match your kitchen decor and personal style.

Regarding trends in materials and finishes, Brass and Titanium were the show's stars at KBIS 2023, capturing everyone's attention. The warm tones of brass and the sleek look of titanium convey an unmatched sense of elegance and sophistication to the kitchen design signaling a major trend for the year.

We were surprised by the use of new, innovative materials in kitchen countertops and surfaces, giving traditional designs a sleek and modern touch.

Some of our favorites include Cambria's Inverness line which incorporates beautiful debossed textured veining that creates a true luxury feeling, and Ceramica Group's SapienStone, a porcelain stoneware material that is exceptionally resistant to staining, scratching, and high temperatures.
