Kitchen Innovations on the Horizon

Kitchens have evolved dramatically over the years, becoming more convenient and functional.

Today’s kitchens are increasingly central in the home, and there is no limit to how amazing and functional they can be.


In order to love your kitchen, you will need adequate layout, functionality and storage space. Some of the most popular trends for kitchens in 2022 and 2023 include layouts that prioritize accessibility and features that make cooking easy. Additionally, kitchens should be stocked with the necessary utensils and appliances to meet your needs.

Storage & Organisation

As kitchens become increasingly crowded, many people are looking for ways to store their belongings more efficiently. This trend is especially evident on social media platforms like Facebook and Pinterest, where numerous kitchen storage groups have been created. According to Kitchen & Bathroom News, videos of organizing hacks on TikTok have garnered 1 billion views, and the topic of kitchen organization has received over 200 thousand online searches each week.

A well-organized kitchen requires a system for storing items, including containers and labels. This will help you to easily find what you’re looking for and keep your kitchen clean and tidy.

If you want to have a well- organised kitchen, you need the space to store things in the first place. This is why KitchenBanc’s new wall storage solution is so popular. It can be installed on walls or above an island in your kitchen, making the most of otherwise unused space. You can keep spices, glassware, recipe books and other cooking tools right where they are needed – all within easy reach!


Many designers are looking to use sustainable materials and practices when designing. This includes sourcing materials locally, using local manufacturers, and learning more about companies that operate in a responsible manner with regard to environmental issues.

When it comes to kitchen upgrades and construction, sourcing local products can help avoid delays due to global supply shortages.

By supporting local businesses and products, consumers can enjoy cost-saving benefits while still receiving high-quality items.


2023 kitchens will feature plenty of light from skylights and large windows, which can compromise cabinet placement. To avoid this issue, choose a KitchenBanc storage unit that sits on your kitchen counter instead.

Looking for a reliable and convenient source of light to help you complete your tasks in the evening? Try KitchenBanc, which offers human-centric lighting capable of providing the brightness you need when cooking or reading. Alternatively, use it for peaceful relaxation at night with a snack.


Swipe your finger to start the appliance and “tap” on the door in order to see it through. This feature is just the beginning for motion-activated appliances; developers are working on ways to make them even more transparent so that you can easily see what’s inside.

In the next few years, appliances with motion sensors will become more popular. This technology will be used to simplify tasks such as shelf-lowering in kitchens.


Kitchen designers are currently aware of the importance of having ample power points in kitchens, as appliances become more commonplace. From coffee machines to juicers and food processors, there is a growing demand for appliances with varying wattages. By providing this variety of choices, kitchen architects can help reduce consumer confusion and make shopping for appliances easier.

One easy way to improve the functionality of your kitchen is by installing power outlets that are capable of powering USBdevices as well. Another nifty feature offered with KitchenBanc products is a charging station that can accommodate Bluetooth speakers and iPads. Now, you won’t have to worry about having an outlet nearby to charge your smartphone.

When designing a new kitchen, consider opting for rounded edges instead of square ones. This will give your space a contemporary look and can be matched with any color scheme. KitchenBanc’s cabinets have an option to choose rounded edges that look sensational.
