Regardless of the size of the kitchen you have in your home, at some time you have probably thought about getting it upgraded. Even a bespoke kitchen requires renovation and change after a certain period. The room can still be functional, but sometimes you want to introduce a little change and switch things around.
It is worth having a look at certain trends and kitchen features that are popular and upcoming in 2022. After all, if you are doing any kitchen renovations, it is best to keep an eye out for the trendiest features and upgrades, to keep the room fresh. Here are a few of the ideas that you might be interested in:
If you are not too keen on doing major renovations, you can simply add a vintage farm table in the middle to play the role of a kitchen island. Other vintage pieces can also be used because they often come in unique sizes. This is the advantage they have over a real kitchen island, which you might not have the space for. Vintage furniture always adds this interesting layer of visual interest that can easily become a conversation piece. It feels so different from conventional island and furniture, which is why we might see it rise in popularity in 2022.
Muted green colours
In the past 2021, many jewel-tone kitchens became a topic for discussion for their great colour choice. But in 2022 it seems people are more likely to shift to mid-tone greens. The reason for this lies with the desire to have a colour scheme that plays well with neutral colours.
Muted green shades are more delicate and create an open feel in the kitchen. A subtle tone can still be very robust in appeal and that is exactly what such a colour choice brings to the room.
There is something about marble that just screams beauty and elegance in the kitchen. That is why it is very likely to see more kitchens with marble stone and/or marble look-alikes. Thick countertops and wall-mounted vanities usually make very good use of it, as well as accent walls within the kitchen. It is durable and beautiful and deserves attention.
When it comes to tiles, the important thing is to expand your horizons and consider not just the colour, but also texture and dimension. Subway tiles are the go-to option for many people, but some crave an innovative look with unique tiles. They can be different in shape, such as to come in a hexagonal shape, and colours as well. Nothing makes a backsplash more accentuated than having unique tiles used for it.
Seamless countertops and backsplashes
The trend of unifying the countertop and the backsplash in the kitchen is nothing new and it will certainly make its appearance in 2022. The idea is to give your eyes a place to rest and having a surface of the kitchen that is cohesive with the backsplash is a fine way to achieve this effect. After all, you don’t need to have everything in the kitchen compete for your attention.
Living room extensions
The kitchen is starting to feel more and more like a living room extension and not just a separate space to have meals. That is why curved corners of the cabinets, round pendants and having a round table all compliment this idea and will likely see a rise in popularity in 2022.
Without a doubt, all of these trends will make a serious appearance in kitchens in 2022. Be sure to check them out and stay on trend!
