With a new year comes new trends! See what our resident kitchen specialist, Bakes & Kropp, predicts for the future of kitchens in 2023.
There is certainly a place for modernism but for many, the cold, impersonal feeling deters consumers from taking the plunge within their homes. With playful contrasts and layers of natural materials, Bakes & Kropp’s signature Soft Modern kitchens take a warmer approach that will empower more homeowners to explore contemporary aesthetics.
Set against more sensible cabinetry finishes, bright accents allow homeowners to integrate color without fully committing to painted cabinetry. An accent color either in kitchen appliances or styling feels a bit more considered and digestible for most homeowners.
High gloss adds a sophisticated element to any space, but in a kitchen, it tends to feel quite cold on its own. At the same time, an entirely matte or wood grain finish may leave something to be desired for homeowners hoping for a more contemporary style. Bakes & Kropp anticipates a heightened demand for mixed materials within kitchen design palettes, allowing homeowners to have the best of both worlds.
Piggy-backing off of the demand for Soft Modern designs, Bakes & Kropp is seeing a greater draw toward hardware-free cabinetry faces. Pared-down cabinetry offers a cleaner look visually, allowing more room for individual elements within the greater kitchen’s styling.
