Kitchen Trends for 2013

What Are The Kitchen Design Trends for 2013?

2013 promises to be an exciting year for kitchen trends where experimentation with materials and design elements prevail. Look for designs to move away from glossy, white reflective cabinetry to kitchens with depth, texture and variety. We will see a Scandinavian design influence and a move towards better designed cabinetry details.

1. A Mix Of Textures

Glossy surfaces and glossy splashbacks dominated 2012. In 2013, we will see a move away from the polished kitchen to varied and diverse designs. Expect a mix of textures in kitchen cabinetry:  Natural finishes and materials (such as timber veneers) mixing with flat finished polyurethane and stainless steel. Bronze details will also make a statement.

Flooring, lighting and ceiling design will become an integral part of the new kitchen in 2013. Look for textural and rich kitchens, incorporating the whole kitchen space rather than only the cabinetry.  Subtle and subdues surfaces and finishes will create the sleek and desired kitchen trend for 2013.
