A kitchen should be as equally functional as it is stylish, and in 2022 that’s no exception. We’re saying goodbye to all-white kitchens and embracing kitchen colour, elements inspired by nature and curves. Find out how you can incorporate five of our favourite 2022 kitchen trends in your home below.
1. Materials & surfaces inspired by nature
As many households continue to spend more time at home during the pandemic, we’re seeing an increased connection to nature. Incorporate natural textures such as stone, terracotta, marble, and travertine in your kitchen. These raw, porous materials showcase nature’s imperfections and unique qualities, as no two pieces of marble or wood look the same. We’re expecting more well-crafted kitchen island countertops with wood and stone finishes in 2022.
2. Bold Colour
When choosing kitchen colour in 2022, high-pigment greens and blues will be popular choices. Add a pop of colour to your kitchen island or cabinets. Pair these bright colours with white and wooden elements. Painting kitchen cabinetry is an easy upgrade that can give your kitchen a whole new look. If you don’t want to make a colourful statement, resort to texture instead.
3. Rounded Accents
Rounded accents complement the trend towards nature-inspired kitchen design. Softer shapes and angles provide a welcoming and safe aesthetic. Choose barstools, lighting, cutting boards, and decorative elements that have a rounded appearance to achieve this look. Integrate geometric and organic shapes into your kitchen and dining area.
4. Kitchen Tiles
Tiles are another great way to add another design element to your kitchen. Use tiles as a kitchen backsplash or follow the latest trend and add tiles to the windowsill. Tiles can protect surfaces and are easy to wipe clean while looking fabulous. Choose from unlimited colours, shapes, and styles of kitchen tiles to find the perfect match for your kitchen.
5. Smart Lighting
A functional kitchen is a well-lit kitchen. Install multiple lighting sources for performing different tasks in sections of the kitchen. You may find dimmable lighting beneficial. Consider decorative lighting over the kitchen island, pot lights, and under-cabinet lighting. Enhance your kitchen lighting with metallic finishes (E.g., cabinet pulls), which will reflect light for a beautiful effect.
