The Top Kitchen Remodel Trends in South County for 2023

Updated: May 4

If you are a South County homeowner wondering what to choose when planning a kitchen renovation, we are excited to share with you some of the common themes we’re finding as we continue to help customers in the area.

Our Porcayo team has been working for many years on home remodel projects in coastal neighborhoods throughout Narragansett, South Kingstown, Charlestown, and Westerly. Each year brings new ideas and creative challenges that we look forward to working through with our loyal customers.

Porcayo Construction has been serving Rhode Islanders for many years and have seen many different trends come and go when it comes to kitchens.

Here are some of the top kitchen remodel trends that we expect to see (and have already seen!) in South County in 2023:

  1. Sustainable Materials

Sustainable and eco-friendly materials are becoming increasingly popular in kitchen remodels and this trend is not going to go anywhere anytime soon. More and more we see homeowners and investment property owners welcoming the idea of being environmentally conscious. Reducing the carbon footprint is a big badge of honor here in RI, and we take pride in creating new concepts using materials like bamboo, cork, and recycled glass for kitchen countertops, flooring, and even backsplashes. These green options can also be both stylish and durable.

2. More Space / Less Clutter

Yes! We know that open concept kitchens have been a popular trend for many years. Our customers in South County are accustomed to the 9 months of the year where their hometown beaches can be enjoyed without the clutter of tourists. Beaches like Misquamicut, Narragansett Town Beach, Wheeler Beach, and others become the heart of the communities.

So - It’s of course no surprise that those same beachgoers would want their kitchens to be the beating heart of their home. Having a beach-themed open concept kitchen layout allows for seamless integration with other areas of the home. An open kitchen creates a more welcoming and spacious atmosphere, making it ideal for hosting family and friends (especially when the tourists are in town!)

"Smart" Kitchens

Technology is taking over homes across the country and kitchens are certainly no exception. This year we expect to see more smart kitchens being worked on in South County. Refrigerators, ovens, and dishwashers can all be controlled remotely with phones or tablets & often come equipped with touch screen tech that was nothing more than a dream decades ago. This technology not only makes cooking and cleaning much easier to manage but also adds convenience and efficiency to daily tasks.

Dark and Bold Colors

If you were to walk into local appliance stores like Wickford Appliance this year, you would see many dark blues and grays VS the typical white appliances.

The ‘all white’ kitchen is becoming less popular & bold themes have begun to make a lasting impact in our beach communities. Colors like navy blue, emerald green, and even black are becoming more popular for kitchen cabinets. Some bold patterns and textures are used for backsplashes and countertops, adding drama and depth to a kitchen renovation. And of course, the tried and true beach theme will always exist - But keep an eye out for neighbors who are going bolder this year!

Mixing and Matching Materials

Our customers & team members are not afraid to experiment with different materials, textures, and finishes to create a completely innovative look. For example - Mixing materials like wood and metal or pairing marble and concrete countertops can add interest and dimension to the kitchen while maintaining a budget friendly project.
