Use these 2022 kitchen designs to breathe some life into your kitchen
The kitchen is no longer just a functional space. When you spend so much time in one space, you want it to have a character of its own and even reflect your personality. More and more people are willing to invest in the design of the kitchen and its aesthetics. New kitchen designs in 2022 reflect this changing dynamic.
In this guide, we have curated all the trends in kitchen design in 2022. Consider it a one-stop-shop for kitchen design ideas. Read on to find out different ways to zhuzh up the design of the kitchen and kitchen décors.
Marble designs for kitchens are fast regaining popularity. You'll see it often used for countertops. The beauty of marble and other natural stones lies in strong veining and variegation. With the right finish, it is the most luxe appearing material.
Many now prefer matte finishes for kitchen countertops for their elegance and contemporary look. Thinner countertops will be favored over bulky ones to make the designs sleeker.
Even for countertops, black will be a dominant colour- either as a part of an all-black kitchen or just an accent piece.
Incorporating nature-inspired elements in interior design is huge this year. We will therefore see heavy usage of natural materials such as wood and natural stones like marble, granite, etc., in the design of the kitchen. These materials are sought-after not only for their beauty but also because they are sustainable options. When cared for well, natural materials can last for decades. Additionally, they are not harmful since they do not release any toxic substances.
Experimentation with mixing material and finishes is to be expected. Matte finishes are being used to offset more reflective materials like metals, tiles, etc.
Many people are moving away from the high-gloss of all stainless steel kitchens.
Tiles are another material that is making its mark in 2022 kitchen designs. Ceramics and porcelain tiles are excellent due to their low maintenance and longevity. Additionally, it offers many options in terms of colour and patterns. Tiling can be used to install other materials such as wood, granite, etc. You could use it for backsplashes, a statement wall, flooring and window jambs.
People seem to be moving away from all white and beige spaces. Pigmented and colourful kitchen ideas are making the rounds, and cabinets are the primary way to add some colour in 2022. Here are some kitchen cabinet colour trends for 2022.
Now more than ever, kitchen backsplashes have become integral design elements. Tiling, slabs and paint are a few ways to introduce interest through backsplashes.
In terms of appliances, here are a few modular kitchen design that are gaining momentum:
As we have seen, kitchens are now used in varied ways, especially as WFH has become permanent in many cases. To that extent, layouts that allow multi-functionality will be all the rage. Many will choose to add kitchen islands or dedicated workstations for that added space.
Open plans are becoming less common. To keep the areas in the home distinct, people are now choosing broken plans instead. Broken plans involve dividing the space without actually having to up the walls. Glass panels, pocket doors, and mesh partitions all help with zoning while keeping the area feeling airy and bright.
Kitchen islands also are a great way to break up long expanses in open plans. Creating nooks with different colour schemes or styles also works well in creating zones.
The kitchen pantry is a staple that isn't going anywhere. But based on the style of the kitchen and the space, we will see different solutions. In a more rustic, cottagecore themed kitchen, you might see an antique cupboard turned pantry situation. Pull-out drawers or a fully integrated cabinet unit could be used in more sleek, contemporary hi-tech designs. If there is enough space, people may opt for walk-in pantries, much like the butler's pantry.
Lighting will be central in modern kitchen designs in 2022. The emphasis will be on layering. Since the kitchen is a diverse space, the requirement for illumination varies from area to area. Recessed lighting under wall cabinets makes great task lighting when cooking and prepping. Pendant lights or ceiling lights are a must over islands and dining spaces. Some general ambient lighting will keep the whole room well lit. Light fixtures are an excellent way to add metallic accents and statement pieces to the design.
You can infuse some character into your kitchen design by incorporating some architectural elements in it. You can do so using POP. Here are some ideas to get you started:
