Kitchen Design Trends
with Joseph Decasperis
Joseph shares the latest kitchen design trends that are capturing the attention of homeowners and influencing truly unique and personalized spaces to cook, entertain, and gather.
Joseph DeCasperis has designed kitchens since the 3rd grade… seriously! Throughout the school day, Joseph would dream up kitchen floorplans and elevations. Despite not quite understanding there is a silent ‘s’ in the word “island,” Joseph always made sure he had an ample walkway. While Joseph knew he would end up in the design realm, he took a broader approach in his college education, studying public relations and advertising. Halfway into his freshman year, DeCasperis bought a house, renovating it from top to bottom and reinforcing his passion for the industry. After remodeling the kitchen, Joseph asked for an internship at the company he worked with. Three years later, he launched Joseph DeCasperis Design, a distinguished kitchen and bath design center. Joseph is enamored with the design industry and was honored as a Thirty Under 30 by the NKBA in 2020. Joseph loves branding, building the business, and above all, connecting with each and every person that walks through the door.
