As Spring begins to fade and Summer approaches, it is an excellent time of the year to start thinking about the home makeovers you’ve been wanting to carry out. Whether a homeowner or a renter, there are small updates you can make without having to undertake a big renovation job. And there is no better place to start than one of the most used rooms in the home: the kitchen.
In a recent report, Fixr.com spoke to top industry experts to get the lowdown on what are going to be the biggest kitchen trends in 2023. Here are 4 of the findings that will work perfectly for a rental kitchen makeover on a budget.
Mix Materials and Textures
Having a mix of different materials and textures keeps the kitchen looking dynamic and visually interesting. 74% of interior designers said that this is going to be the biggest kitchen trend in 2023. While refacing cabinets and replacing countertops may not be an option, you can add some contrast through your furniture. Try adding a couple of stools with materials that break away from your kitchen aesthetics, like wire or leather. If you have industrial elements, the leather will match perfectly. On the other hand, if you want to include an extra detail to add a bit of glam, a wire stool would strike a contrast that will add real depth to the design.
Add Some Extra Hidden Storage
Interior design experts believe that hidden storage is set to be one of the biggest trends in kitchen design this year. In fact, 53% said it would be the most popular feature to include. For a rental home, hidden storage is an easy way to make the space more functional. By adding a side cabinet to the kitchen/dining area, you have a place to store your extra belongings, making the room less cluttered and freeing up shelving space for items you might wish to display.
Light it Up
Statement lighting has been an ongoing trend for a couple of years now. It serves as both enhancing the aesthetics and improving task lighting. Having an interesting light fixture can create a great design focal point for the room while creating ambient lighting. Whether you place a large floor lamp next to a table or hang modern string lighting above an island, it looks interesting while being useful as you prepare or eat food.
Add A Vintage Touch
A vintage look or just a touch can come can be achieved in a wide variety of ways. You don’t need to break the bank to find a vintage-looking piece of furniture, you can also incorporate accessories to bring about a charming, traditional look to the space, like with some art. While your rental kitchen may have a modern, contemporary feel, subtle vintage details can add great contrast in terms of color and design.
Becoming Eco-Friendly and Rent Furniture
Living sustainably has been growing in popularity for the past few years. If you want to contribute to a more sustainable home, consider renting furniture from CORT Furniture Rental to decrease your carbon footprint. Our furniture is rented and re-rented several times through CORT Furniture Rental services before arriving at our CORT Furniture Outlet to be sold rather than thrown into a landfill.
