Muted Colour Schemes

Muted Colour Schemes

As mentioned, the kitchen is the heart of the home, and its design should reflect the style and personality of its occupants. Recently, we’ve seen a trend towards bolder colours and patterns in kitchen design. However, for 2023, we’re predicting a move towards more muted colour schemes. Think soft greys, calming blues, and warm earth tones. This shift reflects a desire for peace and tranquillity in the home after a chaotic year.

Muted colours have a calming effect and can help to create a sense of order in the kitchen. They also provide a blank canvas that can be easily accessorised with brighter colours and patterns. If you’re planning a kitchen renovation in the next few years, consider using muted colours to create a tranquil space you’ll love spending time in.

Dulux’s 2023 Colour Forecast is the perfect inspiration for your next bathroom design. The three emotive palettes are inspired by nature, and our need for balance, calm, and joy. The colours are soft and muted, making them perfect for a bathroom. The Connect palette features earthy neutrals, naturals, muted greens, and wheat yellows. The Balance palette features delicate pastels, oceanic hues such as soft greens, and deep moody teals and blues. The Revive palette features vibrant emerald green, warm yellow, soft blue and lilac. These colours will create a tranquil oasis in your bathroom where you can relax and rejuvenate.

Natural materials

Natural materials

If you’re looking for a kitchen trend that is both stylish and sustainable, look no further than natural materials. Wood, stone, and bamboo are all great options for bringing a touch of nature into your home. Not only do they add visual interest, but they are also environmentally friendly. Natural materials are durable and easy to care for, making them an excellent choice for busy households. Best of all, they can be used in various ways to create a unique space that is all your own.

So if you’re looking for a way to add some personality to your kitchen, consider using natural materials. You’ll love how they look and feel good knowing you’re doing your part to reduce your carbon footprint.

A good way to follow this trend is to use a marble-look benchtop and wood-grain cabinetry. However, this is one of the more expensive trends, so only consider it if you have a larger kitchen budget.

Curved kitchens

If you read our article, ‘2023 Bathroom Design Trends You’ll Want to Follow’ – you will have seen that curved fixtures are predicted to trend next year, and you can expect the same in kitchens. The “curved kitchen” trend is new to 2022 and is set to continue into 2023.

Curved cabinets and islands create a sense of fluidity and grace while providing ample storage and prep space. And since curves are naturally more forgiving than angles, they can help to make small kitchens appear larger. Whether you’re planning a complete kitchen renovation or simply want to update your space with a few strategic accents, keep an eye out for ways to incorporate this trend into your own unique design.

The only downside to this trend is that it requires custom cabinetry, which can be substantially more expensive than our kitchen cabinet range. But if you want to make an impression and have $30,000+ to spend on your kitchen cabinetry, this is the trend for you!

Gold tapware

Gold tapware perth

There’s no doubt that gold is having a moment in the design world. We’re seeing it everywhere from home decor to bathrooms, and now it’s making its way into the kitchen. Gold kitchen tapware is the perfect way to add a touch of luxury to your space. Whether you’re looking for a statement piece or something more subtle, there are plenty of beautiful options to choose from. If you’re not ready to commit to a full gold kitchen, you can also try using gold accents to add a touch of glamour. From cabinet hardware to light fixtures, there are many ways to incorporate this trend into your kitchen. Whether you’re planning a complete remodel or just want to update your space, gold kitchen tapware is the perfect way to add a touch of luxury.

Ross’s Discount Home Centre is just the place to get gold tapware in Perth! We have a wide range of gold taps, including kitchen mixers. Below is just a sample of the options you can consider to pull off this design trend:

Minimalist designs

Minimalist designs

If you’re planning a kitchen renovation in the near future, you’ll be happy to know that minimalism is one of the hottest design trends of 2023. And we here at Ross’s Discount Home Centre are all for this trend as our kitchen range is ideal!

After years of elaborate designs and cluttered benchtops, Australian homeowners are now embracing the beauty of simplicity. A minimalist kitchen is characterised by clean lines, neutral colours, and a focus on function over form. Rather than being stuffed with gadgets and gizmos, a minimalist kitchen only includes the essentials. This allows for more bench space and a streamlined look that is both stylish and practical. And we here at Ross’s Discount Home Centre are all for this trend as our kitchen cabinet range is precisely that!

So if you’re looking for a trendy yet timeless kitchen design, be sure to consider a minimalist approach. You can start planning your minimalistic kitchen design right here on our website.

Kitchen islands

Kitchen islands

A kitchen island is a great way to add extra storage and workspace to your kitchen. They can be used for food preparation, as a dining table, or even as a desk. While kitchen islands have been a staple of modern kitchen design for many years now, they are predicted to become even more popular in 2023.

As we become more accustomed to working from home, many of us are looking for ways to create a dedicated workspace in our homes. And a kitchen island is the perfect solution. By adding a few simple modifications, such as a power outlet and a comfortable chair, you can turn your kitchen island into a functional home office.

Kitchen islands come in all shapes and sizes, but as mentioned earlier, one of the hottest trends for 2023 is curved kitchen islands. Curved islands provide a softer look than traditional rectangular islands and can help to create a more inviting space.

So, if you’re planning a kitchen renovation in 2023, be sure to include a kitchen island in your design. And if you have the budget for custom cabinetry, go for a curved island; they’re the epitome of contemporary kitchen design.


Marble-Look Benchtops

There’s no denying that marble is a luxurious material. It’s often used in high-end homes and businesses, and it instantly adds a touch of elegance to any space. But what if you could bring the beauty of marble into your kitchen without breaking the bank? Thanks to the latest design trends, you can now enjoy the marble look in your kitchen without breaking the budget.

Stone and engineered stone benchtops are nothing new, but the desire for marble in the kitchen has skyrocketed in 2022 and looks to only continue in 2023. Thankfully, engineered stone benchtops make this trend affordable for all.

With marble-look benchtops and splashbacks, you can enjoy all the beauty of marble without the hefty price tag. So if you’re looking for a way to add a touch of luxury to your kitchen, be sure to consider this trend for your next renovation.

Matching splashback and benchtops

Matching splashback and benchtops

One of the hottest trends for 2023 is matching benchtops and splashbacks. This really is a continuation of the marble trend above, as it works best when using marble or engineered stone. Using the same splashback and benchtop material, you can create a luxurious and cohesive look that will make your kitchen envy the neighbourhood.

Not only is this trend beautiful, but it’s also highly functional. Plus, marble (even engineered stone) is extremely durable and easy to clean, making it the perfect material for busy families. If you’re looking for a way to add some extra glamour to your kitchen, look no further than the matching benchtop and splashback trend.

Floor-to-ceiling cabinetry

Floor-to-ceiling cabinetry

One of the biggest kitchen design trends for 2023 will be floor-to-ceiling cabinetry. While this trend has been hanging around for the last couple of years, it’s predicted to become more prevalent in 2023.

This trend creates a sense of warmth and envelopment, making the kitchen feel like a true haven within the home. Plus, extra storage space is always welcome in a busy family household! However, as with several of these trends, it’s expensive to follow. Floor-to-ceiling cabinetry almost always needs to be custom-made to fit the height of your space, so again, only consider this if you have a larger budget and are planning to have your kitchen cabinetry custom-made.

So, there you have it! These are the top kitchen design trends for 2023 that you’ll want to follow. With any luck, these trends will help to inspire your next kitchen renovation or build. Good luck and happy designing!


2023 is set to be a cracking year in terms of kitchen design trends, with muted colour schemes, kitchen islands, marble benchtops and floor-to-ceiling cabinetry all set to be popular options.

So if you’re planning on renovating your kitchen in 2023, be sure to keep these trends in mind!

It’s important to remember that while these trends are very lavish and highly desirable, they come at a high price. So, before you get too excited, it’s important to work out your budget to ensure you can afford to follow such trends. Opt for a minimalistic kitchen design if you’re not looking to spend more than $10,000 on your kitchen renovation. By doing so, you can purchase our high-quality yet very affordable pre-assembled kitchen range that is sure to impress!
