HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR KITCHEN?
Top Kitchen Trends for 2023
The kitchen is the heart of the home, having a functional, stylish space is of the utmost importance.

Not only are they visually appealing but they also serve to break up a space, solving a lot of layout issues that can arise in a kitchen.
Having a freestanding ‘furniture’ island is a great way to infuse personality into a kitchen. We are seeing a lot with vintage tables, or new tables with a design with look to the past. This achievable trend lends flexibility to your kitchen design. By using a piece of furniture, rather than a permanently placed island, you can not only change the configuration of your kitchen with relative ease but also have the option to change out the piece of furniture completely whenever new inspiration hits.
