Top Kitchen Design Trends in 2023

Create a bespoke, luxury kitchen design with the team at J.S. Geddes that delivers on 2023’s top trends – think high-end appliances, professional ranges & ovens, integrated refrigeration and advanced cooktops.

With appliances in place, enhance your space further with statement lighting fixtures, stunning countertop materials, granite flooring solutions and bespoke storage solutions.

Elegant Kitchen Cabinets

When designing a modern kitchen, investing in sophisticated yet efficient cabinetry is vital. Choose styles like the traditional shaker or more ornate choices to give your cooking area an attractive atmosphere.

Customise and refine your space with options that reflect your individual taste for a look that is as personal as it is lavish.

Classic cabinetry, in particular two-toned designs that blend black and white, blue and white or green with white to create an attractive aesthetic, is becoming increasingly popular. White remains the most preferred kitchen cabinet colour, however, there has been a clear shift towards warmer natural shades as well.

An appealing appearance that stands unaffected by changing trends makes these timeless hues ever more sought after for any type of luxury kitchen decor.

Customisation Options

If you want to create a custom look for your luxury kitchen, then opt for unique hardware and two-tone cabinets along with bold colours, contrasted by intricate stained glass panels. This combination of features strikes the perfect balance between making an eye-catching statement while maintaining all that elegance synonymous with luxury kitchens.

Whether your aim is for a traditional kitchen or a modern kitchen, for us, it has to be designed and installed for your unique space. That’s what really separates a nice kitchen from a luxury kitchen in 2023.



High-End Kitchen Appliances

In order for your luxury kitchen to meet all your expectations, high-end appliances, integrated refrigeration and advanced cooktops are ideal.

They bring not only a modern cooking experience but also an aesthetic appeal to the area that is incomparable. Cooking can now be easier with features such as convection heating, temperature probes and self-cleaning ovens too!

J.S Geddes supplies appliances from the most renowned manufacturers. Brands such as Siemens, Samsung, Miele, and Gaggenau lead the way in technology and design, ensuring cooking is an experience rather than an effort.

Kitchen Appliances

Professional Ranges and Ovens

Your high-end kitchen should be prepared for any challenge in the culinary world and a top of the line range or oven is exactly what you need. The GE JGB735 gas range, as well as Whirlpool freestanding gas ranges, provide digital controls, stainless steel grates that are easily cleanable and ample storage space – all necessary to ensure your luxury kitchen runs smoothly. Professional grade appliances such as these two are sure to bring out your inner chef!


Integrated Refrigeration

In 2023, voice assistants, AI fridges and appliances that are unobtrusive to the cabinetry of a kitchen all became highly sought-after. Companies such as Samsung, Maytag and Fisher Paykel excel in providing energy efficient refrigeration options that flawlessly go hand in hand with your desired kitchen design.

These amenities make life much easier by their inherent features. Such as smart scheduling accessible through voice command or temperature sensors can be used from any distance away due to technology advancements. Such enhancements help you keep an eye on power consumption even while far away from home’s comfort zone, granting both convenience and sustainability for your dream kitchen!


Advanced Cooktops

These appliances guarantee better temperature accuracy during cooking, faster speeds for meals to be prepared quickly plus energy efficiency is improved too.

Despite these features making them attractive choices though, it’s still important to take into account both the cost associated with as well as what type of cookware would go best with such an installation.

Marble Elegance

Marble countertops are set to be a luxurious element of many kitchens in the year 2023. The traditional style and heat-resistance that comes with these beautiful countertops has kept their popularity up over time. Yet, it is important to consider how marble can scratch or stain easily when choosing them for your home, requiring regular maintenance to preserve its dazzling look.


Quartz Durability

Quartz countertops remain a top pick owing to their solidness and low maintenance needs. Their non-porous surface stops liquids and bacteria from getting inside, offering users with an untouched environment. To keep quartz surfaces as clean as possible, it is advised to use gentle soap solutions when cleaning them instead of using abrasive or harsh scrubbing materials.


Granite Versatility

For luxury kitchen design, the use of natural stone benchtops and quartzite as countertop materials is becoming increasingly popular for their attractive look and resilience. Granite countertops offer an extensive selection of possibilities that guarantee your luxurious kitchen will be both aesthetically pleasing yet highly functional.


Statement Lighting

Such fixtures have the added advantage of highlighting any extraordinary features in your kitchen such as large islands or custom backsplash designs too!


Pendant Lighting

Luxury kitchens can benefit greatly from the addition of pendant lights, like those in Michelle Berwick’s project. Such lighting options are a great way to add elegance and style to your space as they come in various shapes, sizes, and colors so you can find one that perfectly fits with your kitchen’s aesthetic. Plus these fixtures provide more focused illumination than some other alternatives giving your workspace an attractive modern atmosphere while still being customisable for every need!

No matter what look you’re going for, adding a special element such as one of these exquisite light sources will instantly make it feel luxurious and grandiose while providing practical illumination too!

Integrated Sinks

Integrated sinks are a popular choice for luxury kitchens due to their unified and sleek look. Ranging in size and shape, they can be tailored to any kitchen design imaginable.

Tiles also come with many advantages like easy installation and maintenance while adding style. If you’re looking specifically at achieving an ultra-luxurious aesthetic, then going for polished concrete might be better suited.
