In many homes, the kitchen is the centerpiece—a place where family and friends gather to eat, drink and share the activities of the day. Luis Murillo, founder and principal architect of LMD Architecture Studio, shares some recent South Bay projects that highlight his favorite 2023 trends for this vital home space.

Warm It Up with Wood

Incorporating this rich, natural element is sure to bring warmth to any kitchen setting. More and more people are turning to wood to create an overall soothing and rustic yet contemporary feel.

New Natural Light

Making sure your home is filled with natural sunlight is one of Luis’ main requirements in any residential project—especially in the kitchen. One unique way to make sure you’re meeting this prerequisite is by adding a skylight right above your cooking area. Enjoy your breakfast in full glow and dinner under the stars.

Colorful Cabinetry

Pops of yellows, blues and greens are more than welcome in 2023. Spicing up your color scheme is an easy and fun way to make an impression on your guests and inspire a mood.
