The 2023 KSA kitchen trend project is being proudly sponsored by PG BisonSonae AraucoRehauMax on TopGrassVogue DoorsNeolith and Franke.  Their products and materials will be showcased in four unique kitchens designed and manufactured by Eurofit Kitchens and Cupboards based in Fourways, Montana Interiors based in Bloemfontein, Shumba Innovations based in Midrand and Island Board based in Soshanguve.  The sponsors work closely with the kitchen companies ensuring that each kitchen showcases different elements of their ranges with a focus on new products, colours, decorative panels and textures.

Our theme for the 2023 colour palette – ‘bringing it home’ – looks closer to home, and to wonderfully familiar landscapes to find the comfort, joy, and wellbeing that we are searching for. Colours inspired by our natural landscapes makes their presence felt, as do soothing hues. For those drawn to the bold, a combination of monochromes will deliver a sharp and fresh graphic note, while rich pigments speak to the influence of traditional prints and weaves.
