MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO – JANUARY 11, 2023 – The kitchen and bath are the heart of the home, so it’s understandable why homeowners are always looking for new ways to spruce up these spaces to make them more efficient and comfortable. If you’re looking to transform your home this New Year but unsure where to begin, this list of the top kitchen and bathroom design trends will be sure to provide you with much-needed inspiration to kick off your planning.
1) Focus On Health and Wellness
Although certain home design trends come and go each year, cultivating a healthy home continues to be of high importance when planning renovation projects. From increased energy and productivity to a safer space for you and your loved ones, there are endless benefits to prioritizing the need for a healthy home.
Water filtration in both the kitchen and bathroom is a great way to ensure a safer space, while also providing peace of mind knowing that the water you drink and bathe in is clean and fresh. The Spectra Filtered Shower System reduces up to 50% of chlorine in your shower water to better protect your skin and hair, while the Saybrook Filtered Shower System reduces 99.7% of lead, 96.9% of chlorine, and 92.6% of class I particulates* from your tap water with the simple push of a button. These state-of-the-art filtration systems were specially designed to make your home that much healthier.

2) Introduce Smart Innovations
Modern technology has created a new era of interior design, with homeowners looking for high-tech solutions to increase the functionality of their living spaces. Smart appliances, fixtures and lighting are making it easier than ever to integrate technology into your home, however with so many options to choose from, this may become an overwhelming task.
If you’re looking for something that will stand the test of time and make your home a showstopper, consider incorporating touchless fixtures into your next renovation project. American Standard’s Studio and Cadet Touchless Toilets, along with the Avery Hands-Free Kitchen Faucet offer ultimate convenience, while also keeping your home more hygienic by limiting the spread of germs and bacteria. Simply wave your hand in front of the sensor to trigger a powerful flush, or in the case of the faucet, to turn the water on/off. Not only does this encourage a cleaner space for all, but it also makes these daily tasks that much more fun for the whole family.
3) Curate with Colour
Bathrooms and kitchens are rife with color opportunities, from fixtures and flooring, to wallpaper and tile ideas. If you’re looking for a timeless and affordable yet impactful update, consider painting the walls in neutral color tones, while adding bold pops of color to the space through decor and accessories such as curtains, rugs, and artwork.
If you’re looking to update your fixtures, consider finishes like Matte Black for a bold statement that accentuates your colourful details, or Nickel and Satin Brass finishes for a golden hue. Not only are these fixtures sure to leave a lasting impression, but they will also complement the rest of your space beautifully.
4) Eco-Conscious Living
