At Kitchens Complete in Derby, we know how important it is to have a kitchen that you love. Trending colours tend to build and expand upon popular kitchen colours from previous years, making it easy to have a kitchen that fits with the latest trends whilst having staying power.
Choosing the right colour for your bespoke Derbyshire kitchen doesn’t have to be a difficult process, that’s why we’ve put together an easy guide of the trending kitchen colours for 2023.
As we know, kitchens can be a busy environment and sometimes they can get chaotic. Having a calming, cool colour as the backdrop of your kitchen can help create a relaxed environment. Soft, pastel colours are perfect for this. Sky blue kitchens are growing in popularity this year, helping create a feeling of escapism. Shades of soft green, as well as sandy tones, are a great choice for creating a comforting atmosphere. In previous years, people have been filling their kitchens with plants and greenery, but this year, choosing a calming colour for your kitchen is the new way to connect to nature and your surroundings. These softer shades help make a more positive space to spend time in.
Jewel toned colours are in! These colours are based on those derived from gemstones, like rubies and emeralds. Typically, these have a high level of colour saturation, making them truly stand out in your kitchen. Bolder colours look best when paired with lighter countertops to give your kitchen a fresh look.
Dark forest green is a popular kitchen colour, creating depth in your kitchen. It works well with marble worktops and warm mixed metals like copper and brass. Jewel toned greens and reds are perfect when paired with heritage style kitchens. These bold, dramatic colours have been growing in popularity over the year, and it doesn’t look like they’re going away anytime soon. Consider the atmosphere you want to create in your kitchen, as these kitchens can sometimes feel smaller and cavernous. This will depend on the size of your kitchen, as well as how much natural and artificial lighting your kitchen will have.
Earthy toned kitchens are a great choice to bring the outside in and help you feel connected to the outside. It is likely the increase in popularity of this trend comes from the national lockdown. The ‘back-to-nature’ colour choice creates a sense of calm in the kitchen, which can be quite soothing in the colder months, when you feel like you’re stuck inside. It makes your bespoke kitchen even more inviting.
In 2023, neutral kitchens are here to stay. They’ve always been a popular colour choice due to their versatility. Neutrals, like beige, greige, and taupe, help make the kitchen a blank canvas, giving you the opportunity to have standout features or textured cabinets. Neutrals are a great kitchen colour to create a warm and welcoming environment in the home. Some colours are warmer than others, but all create a sense of comfort.
