Kitchen Trends at the Housing Fair 2023 in Loviisa, Finland

Kitchens have become a permanent part of living spaces. Integrated appliances and breakfast cabinets create clear views. Notable materials included marble-like stone and tile surfaces. The kitchen color schemes were natural and cohesive, ranging from green to white, black, as well as light and dark wood. Stainless steel sinks and black composite sinks were popular choices in both kitchens and utility rooms. Here is a compilation of the most interesting kitchens at the housing fair.


Cabin Havsstrand is a modern single-story timber house without plastics, featuring ample glass panels as the wall material. Natural and recycled materials have been favored in the material selections.
