Whilst you’ll want your new kitchen to stand the test of time, there’s absolutely no denying that adding trend-led touches can truly transform your space. To help give you some ideas and inspiration for your own project, we’ve put together an exclusive guide on the most popular kitchen design trends for 2022.
With so much focus on sustainability, it’s no surprise that one of the top trends of 2022 is all about bringing the outside in. Incorporating natural stone and wood textures into your home will create a harmonious kitchen environment that is bright, clean and peaceful. Natural stones such as marble and quartz add a premium touch to your space, while wood grains will add warmth and create a homely atmosphere.
The appearance of your kitchen is, naturally, going to be of the highest importance when designing your new space, however, it is just as important to consider practicality, and in particular, storage. Busy family life can make it difficult to keep your space tidy and organised, but clever storage solutions can help keep mess out of sight. Kitchen islands provide valuable cupboard space while incorporating pantries and breakfast stations within your kitchen allow you to keep everyday essentials hidden away while always within reach.
The last couple of years saw dark blue interiors soar with popularity. However, in 2022 we’re getting a bit more adventurous. Shades of dark green, rich plum, vibrant ochre, dusty pink and dramatic black are all proving popular with our customers this year. Jewelled emerald tones make for stunning feature tiles and accessories, combining the palette of the outside world with a luxe touch.
Including blush rose gold, patinated copper, antique brass and bright gold, warm metallic finishes make the perfect addition to on-trend dark and dramatic colour schemes, creating a premium and stylish look. From taps and hinges to knobs and handles, small touches of a lustrous metallic finish will elevate any kitchen design.
For an urban, contemporary kitchen design, consider opting for industrial finishes to complement the rich colour and metallic trends of 2022. Industrial elements can be incorporated in many ways, from pendant light fixtures to bar stool seating and metallic and wood effect textures, cutting-edge industrial features can add another fantastic dimension to your design. As a trend centred around bold, moody palettes, warm timber or clean concrete effect flooring will help to add light and character to your new design.
Many 2022 kitchen trends concentrate on the use of natural materials. Wood and wicker furnishings are rising in popularity due to the serene, bright environment they create. There are many ways to incorporate this trend, whether it is through wicker storage accessories or larger wooden furniture such as bar stools. Whether you have a contemporary or traditional design, natural textures and wood tones will create a tranquil environment to socialise and cook in.
