2022 is shaping up to be a great year for kitchen renovations! This year, adding more practical utility to kitchens is going to be popular, with lots of new gadgets, appliances, and time and space-saving ideas to choose from, but as usual, style comes first. After all, who wants an efficient kitchen if it doesn’t look good? With that in mind, here’s a look at the top kitchen design ideas for 2022.
Top Kitchen Design Ideas For 2022
Kitchens in 2022 have become more of a living and working space than in previous years due to the pandemic. Thus, people are trending toward a more open kitchen design that flows naturally into the other spaces in the house. Achieving this is as simple as incorporating work and technology spaces into your kitchen to create a multifunctional space. However, some people are getting a little more creative with this trend and creating a concealed kitchen concept that involves hiding appliances behind larder doors and using submerged cabinets.
Time to go antiquing. Old is now new for 2022! With supply chain issues ongoing, people have turned to vintage pieces for their kitchens which adds the perfect amount of charm to their space.
While subway tiles are out this year, glazed tiles are going to be very popular. Glass, textured, custom, and metallic tiles are all in-bounds this year too. Don’t be afraid to get creative with bold or whimsical tile designs for the view behind your sink, and give contrasting grout colors a try.
Green is in! From cabinets to walls and backsplash, if you want to go with a color for your kitchen, green is the winner for 2022. People want a calming sense of nature in their homes and adding hues of green does just that. Don’t have the budget for a full kitchen reno? Add some greenery to your kitchen with plants!
