What Will Be The Most Popular Kitchen Trends Next Year?

The new year is approaching, which is often time homeowners think about ways they can spruce up their house or flat and embark on redecorating plans. If the kitchen is on your list of things to renovate next year, here is our pick of the top three trends that will be huge in 2023. 

Sustainable materials

As well as thinking about what you want your kitchen to look like, more people will consider what they want it to be made from too. Sustainable materials will become huge in 2023, as homeowners try to do their bit in the fight against climate change and opt for more durable materials, including wood, stone, and steel. 

Jeppe Christensen, founder of Reform, told Good House Keeping: “The sourcing and recyclability of materials will also be taken into account to a greater extent.”

Hidden pantries

The desire to hide away all your bits and bobs in the kitchen is still going strong, which is why hidden pantries will remain popular next year. You can create a really smart, sleek kitchen having tall pantries that keep everything hidden behind its doors. 

According to Melissa Klink, creative director at Harvey Jones, speaking to Woman And Home: “That wow moment, when you open what looks like a cupboard door to expose a whole secret room behind just never gets old. A crowd-pleaser for sure!”

Butcher-block island

Large, open kitchen-diners are still going strong, particularly when teamed with a central island. Make yours stand out next year by opting for a butcher-block island that looks incredibly stylish, as well as durable. 

Opt for a colour such as walnut, as this warms the room and makes it feel more homely.

Jeremy Hunt Plans Extension On £1.7m Home

Chancellor of the exchequer Jeremy Hunt has come under fire after his plans to extend his £1.7 million London home were reported. 

He has submitted a planning application to Westminster City Council for various works to be done on the four-storey town home in Pimlico, which he bought in 2010. 

Despite applying in September, the Liberal Democrats and Green Party have recently criticised Mr Hunt, saying he is “out of touch” with the public.

Co-leader of the Green Party Adrian Ramsay said: “For many, the current economic crisis has left people choosing whether to heat their homes or put food on the table.”

He added: “But for the richest, life appears to go on in a completely normal fashion.”

The Evening Standard revealed a heritage design and access statement for the application, which stated intentions to increase residential floorspace in the property. This includes making bedrooms bigger, remodelling the internal space, and adapting the lower ground floor to include a larger bedroom. 

The council has not yet made a decision on whether the work can go ahead on the home, which could be worth twice as much now.

According to the Land Registry, the average house price has increased from £174,458 in January 2010 to £295,000 in September 2022, a rate of growth of 69 per cent. Therefore, Mr Hunt’s property could currently be worth as much as £2.87 million. 

This comes after the chancellor announced the Autumn Statement last week, which included plans to increase taxes by £25 billion, and reduce public spending by £30 billion.
