Simon Bodsworth, Managing Director at Daval Furniture explains, “Creating a highly personalised and plush environment which supports flexible lifestyles is absolutely essential in every part of the kitchen and living area with home bars and day pantries set to grow increasingly popular in 2023-4.

The UK bespoke furniture market is well-positioned to supply premium sustainable products which will facilitate every aspect of today’s blended lifestyles for the ultimate in quality time with family and friends.” With this in mind, Simon is keen to share his trend predictions for year ahead.
REFINED LUXURY – The desire to combine beauty and utility in the kitchen living space is going to surge in 2023 as we all want more room to stock up on essentials and specify designated larders and pantries at home. Storage never goes out of fashion, with a strong trend for sophisticated cabinetry which will house everything from breakfast goods or go-to snacks to smaller appliances such as microwaves and blenders. With highly personalised, dynamic storage a must-have, we can anticipate a rise in customised day pantries, kitchen islands and open-fronted elements which are tailored to supporting family life. With the British home becoming increasingly holistic, choosing furniture with designed-in details will help you to create and maintain flexible spaces to cater to increased entertaining alongside core functions of cooking and dining.
UNIVERSAL CLASSICS – Shaker design influences will remain strong in 2023 as this classic style is influenced by the global influences of both Scandi and Japandi style to create a new universal design. This will work in all property styles with the scope to customise units in line with the latest lifestyle trends.
MODERN COMFORT – Cool, calm and collected colours are the way forward for creating a grounding kitchen living space in 2023. Look out for rich blues and greens alongside pale natural tones and quintessential greys providing the perfect palette to complement classic painted kitchens in the town or country. If you prefer a more contemporary, urban edge, slab fronted furniture will be in demand to add functionality and contemporary style to open plan environments. Why not create your own take on monochrome style by mixing dark grey and white units with colourful element? Living areas will also benefit from the addition of integrated lighting and open shelves to add glamour to recesses ensuring media storage is taken care of.
TACTILE TEXTURES – Finishes will be hugely important in the luxury space this year as furniture solutions which are tactile, visually appealing and durable are in strong demand. Mixing and matching mineral-effect finishes will be a sure-fire way of enhancing the contemporary kitchen for added luxury on island units and cabinets. Combining these textural effects with dedicated storage walls and clear zoning ensure that kitchens can be easily customised to changing family needs. Visible wood grain contrasts with sophisticated glass and industrial-inspired metallic handles and lighting are set to further enrich this lavish and inviting experience.
CHANGING ROOMS – Greater creativity in interior design and space management will be a strong trend with increased personalisation in boot rooms and utility rooms with dedicated spaces for everything from ironing boards to under-bench storage. Going bespoke is increasingly seen as a necessity to enhance quality of life as families focus on home improvement rather than moving. In fact, 2023 is to be to be the year of the sustainable upgrade as we are keen to boost our surroundings and support UK businesses. The public desire to buy British has increased in the wake of Brexit and the pandemic In fact, 88% of respondents to a Make It British survey said they would be willing to pay more for products made in the UK.
