When it comes to designing your dream kitchen, it can be hard to know exactly what to go for, especially since the options are endless. That’s why we’ve put together this guide of the top kitchen trends of 2022 to help you bring the kitchen you’ve always dreamed of to life.
1) A zen kitchen
It seems as though the world was turned on its head the last two years, and ever since the chaos started, people have been looking for ways to keep the calm and serenity at home with the help of their surroundings. The exact same approach is happening with kitchens, where creating an environment that evokes happiness has never been more important. We will continue to see colours and textures that aim to amplify positivity, such as restorative muted greens, blues, soothing pinks, as well as warm woodgrains feature in kitchen cabinetry.
2) Glazed tiles
Tiled splashbacks have always been popular, but we’re currently seeing a shift away from matte tiles and towards glossy tiles instead. This change is largely due to the fact that glossy tiles are much easier to clean than matte ones. Shiny tiles also give a finished and polished look that is ideal for modern kitchens, whilst matte tiles tend to look more like concrete.
3) Mixing vintage and modern
The beauty of kitchens is that they are one of the last places in the home where it’s still acceptable to mix the old and new. The combination of new and old will only become more popular as time goes on, with a number of homes converting vintage cupboards into bar-grade cabinets or replacing older appliances with new models to suit the trends of today. Mixing vintage elements in a modern kitchen has the immediate effect of creating a warm, lived-in home environment.
4) All eyes on the pendant features
Pendant features are one of the hottest trends in kitchens right now, and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. Hanging a single pendant lamp, or even a trio, is a simple but effective way to add ambience to your space.
5) Play with patterns
Patterns are the new black for kitchens, with every home featuring a different interpretation of it. If you don’t want anything that’s too crazy, you can focus on elements such as cupboards, backsplashes, or select areas within your kitchen so that it doesn’t overwhelm the entire area.
6) Be brave with colour contrasts
Contrasting colour is a risk, but one that can pay off if done right. One key trend in this area this year is daring to be bold in your colour choices and picking shades that are complete opposites of each other. How about trying to play with pink and green with your kitchen splashback and cabinetry?
There’s no set way to design a kitchen. These top kitchen trends of 2022 are here to inspire you, but only you can decide how your dream kitchen will look!
