Kitchen Design Trends 2022

The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home. It is where you host guests, cook great meals, and talk with loved ones. Because you spend so much time in the kitchen, you need to ensure that it is functional and aesthetically pleasing. So, it is no surprise that kitchen renovations are one of the most popular remodeling projects.

The design trends that will dominate kitchen renovation in 2022 revolve around bolder colors, multi-island kitchens, patterned floors, and hidden storage. If you are considering a kitchen remodel, explore these up-and-coming trends for inspiration.

Then, All White Kitchens. Now, Colorful Kitchens.

Multiple significant changes are on the horizon for kitchen design. The main change is a decrease in white-dominate color schemes in favor of bolder options.

All-white or neutral color schemes have been the trendy option for kitchens for several years. Popular design choices, like muted-color cabinets and patterned floors, look to change that perception.

  • Muted green: Color of the year

While the transition to full-on bold color choice may be several years away, the movement toward muted-color schemes has already begun. According to Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams, and Better Homes & Gardens, muted greens are the color of 2022. Muted green is an excellent choice for cabinets because it goes well with natural elements like a wood-stained island or natural stone countertops.

  • Bright, not white

With kitchens transitioning to darker colors, homeowners are looking to bring in more natural light to maintain the feeling of spaciousness that light color schemes afford. Large windows in the kitchen deliver illuminating natural light and are possible because kitchen storage is transitioning to below-the-counter options.

  • Natural elements and earth tones

White countertops with natural stone design, like Calacatta quartz countertops, keep the kitchen bright and demand attention with their bold granite appearance. Islands with waterfall edge countertops highlight the beautiful countertop design.

  • Matching countertops and backsplashes

Match your countertops with complimenting backsplash tiles in unique patterns and textures. You could continue the natural stone look from your countertop to your backsplash. Or pair the backsplash’s color with your under-the-counter drawers.

Then, Island Kitchens. Now, Multi-Island Kitchens.

The kitchen island has been in vogue for nearly the past decade. While this is still the case in 2022, there is a new variation on the rise. Multi-island kitchens are being implemented in large open kitchens that want to add intrigue to the space.

At first, multiple islands in one kitchen sounds impractical, but their practicality boosts their popularity upon further review.

  • Separate work from play

A kitchen with multiple islands separates work from play by isolating the work triangle to one island space and keeping others at the other island. On one island, a cook has a workspace, and the other is for guests or family members to eat and work.

  • Increase storage space

The extra cabinet space under islands opens up the area above the counters for personalized decorations or large windows. Large kitchens benefit from a multi-island layout because it breaks up the monolithic presence of one oversized island.

Then, Straight Wood Floors. Now, Patterned Floors.

Hardwood floors are still the most popular flooring material for kitchens; however, fresh patterns are changing the traditional hardwood style. Hardwood, vinyl, and ceramic tiles all lend themselves to exciting patterns that add a personal touch to your kitchen floor.

  • Hardwood patterns

Hardwood can be laid in geometric patterns that accentuate the natural grain. Mix the hardwood with colorful under-the-counter cabinetry for a beautiful kitchen color scheme.

  • Vinyl and tile patterns

Vinyl and tiles open up more choices for patterns because they come in many styles. Vinyl or tiles with vertical designs or unique patterns on each piece placed in the quarter-turn pattern creates an intriguing and visually-pleasing floor.

Then, Cabinets for Every Purpose. Now, Integrated Storage.

Kitchen cabinets are the second most remodeled item after kitchen countertops, and they are essential for storage and can dominate the kitchen space. With kitchen islands and large kitchen layouts giving homes more under-the-counter storage space, we are witnessing the rise of hidden storage.

  • Smart storage

Cabinetry gives homeowners a chance to add color to their kitchen storage, but cabinets lining every kitchen wall are slowly falling out of fashion. Reclaim your above-the-counter space with a walk-in pantry with disappearing doors or roll-out cabinetry. Toe-kick drawers are great for using every inch of space from the counter to the ground.
