6 Best Kitchen Design Trends for 2022

The Kitchen Master

Are you considering renovating your kitchen this year? You may know what particular designs and features you prefer, but you may also want a little inspiration to ensure your kitchen aligns with modern trends.

Since you want your remodel to last, it’s wise to incorporate timeless designs into your renovation plans. Take a look at what designers expect to be popular in 2022 and beyond.

Pops of Color

While white kitchens are always a classy option, kitchens are seeing more colorful cabinets, countertops, and walls this year. This trend stems from the natural inclination to personalize your kitchen. Feel free to add a bold, contrasting color palette or simply bring in more color with accessories.

Whatever you choose, keep in mind that the most popular colors to combine with neutral tones this year are green, yellow, and blue.

Natural Light & Materials

From expansive windows behind the kitchen sink to oversized skylights above the island, homeowners are looking to add more natural light to the kitchen.

This trend blends seamlessly with the emphasis on natural materials that we’re seeing in 2022. After all, there’s nothing quite like wood grain cabinets, stone countertops, and leather stools bathed in natural light.

Slab Backsplashes

Design experts expect slab backsplashes to thrive in 2022. Wrapping the quartz or marble countertop slab up the wall makes a bold, contemporary statement in your kitchen.

This technique is undeniably beautiful, and it also eliminates grout lines, making cleanup a breeze.

Kid- & Pet-Friendly Spaces

The kitchen has always been a gathering place for the family, but this year, there’s an even bigger emphasis on making the entire family feel welcome.

This first involves creating kid-friendly spaces, where they can work on homework, scroll through social media, or hang out with friends — all without getting in your way while you prepare dinner.

Kitchens designed for the whole family also make pets feel welcome. You might put that unused toe-kick space to good use with a pullout feeding station or treat zone.

A window nook or cubby beneath the island also gives your pet a comfortable place to hang out without getting underfoot.

Ample Storage Space

When has kitchen storage not been essential? The difference this year is that kitchen designs can maximize every available inch thanks to custom storage solutions.

Drawer dividers, pullout shelves, corner drawers, and door-mounted racks are all getting attention in 2022.

Storage is also getting smarter. Automated cabinets that raise and lower with the touch of a button are an innovative element of aging-in-place design.

You also have electronic device storage options, such as drawers with built-in outlets and USB ports to charge the whole family’s gadgets without cluttering up the counter.

Smart Appliances

Modern kitchen technology isn’t just limited to storage solutions. Smart appliances continue to grow in popularity because they save energy and increase convenience.

Imagine getting a notification on your phone when the oven finishes preheating or having your fridge automatically put milk on your digital shopping list when the jug is almost gone.

These examples are just the tip of the iceberg for what smart appliances are capable of.
