Kitchen Trends of 2022

Kitchen Trends of 2022

If you have recently moved into a new home or are simply renting an apartment, you have probably thought about upgrading your kitchen - a multifunctional room for preparing food, where families and friends gather to nourish the mind and body and perhaps a temporary workspace. Before you begin your grand renovation plans, it's worth considering the likely kitchen design trends of 2022. We have compiled a list of design trends that will help you elevate and rejuvenate your kitchen ready for this year. The following will be our interpretation of the recent trends, touching on how to implement our range of lever handles and cabinet furniture.

Muted Green

In recent years we've seen numerous shades of green hit the market, livening up people's homes with rich hues and a forest palette. But this year and especially the end of 2021, a shift towards tranquility and serenity has been unmistakable. Earthy tones have become more prominent, bringing a sense of calm and warmth to our homes. Muted greens are at the forefront of these - Sage Green and Boringdon Green by Little Greene, are perfect examples of the calmness one can achieve by including these wonderful shades into your humble abode. These muted greens will create such an open and airy feel within your kitchen, a subtle yet influential impact. Our interpretation can be seen below, a Sage Green* emulsion paired with our contemporary Aged Bronze Brompton Lever on Rose Set (Art Deco) and an Aged Bronze 4" Plain Drawer Pull - Powder coated in Black.

Marble

Marble has made its return - we are delighted. An unmissable, luxurious statement piece for your kitchen. Introducing this into your kitchen will create a sense of materiality, texture and space; and let us not forget the balance between extravagance and elegance. Marble has become a popular choice for kitchens and bathrooms as of late - A highly sustainable, durable material with classic attributes and can withstand passing trends. A great investment for levelling up your hosting space in the form of countertops, flooring or even splash-backs. Below is a composition of Marble, Stained Green Ash, Confetti by Little Greene and our very own Natural Smooth 156mm Bar Pull Handle accompanied by the Polished Chrome Mushroom Cabinet Knob 32mm.

 

Marble Brave Colour Contrasts

Kitchens are teeming with colour opportunities, from cabinetry to flooring, countertops, splash-backs, furniture and the list continues. Start by deciding your level of commitment, one of the easiest and less costly options is to paint a wall, your cabinets or even a piece of wooden furniture. Choosing a colour can be difficult but a simple coat of paint can be the solution if you change your mind. We have chosen Little Greene's Jet Black, Nether Red and Bassoon to be coupled with the Aged Bronze Brompton Lever on Rose Set (Art Deco) and the Aged Bronze 4" Plain Drawer Pull.

Brave Colour Contrast Natural and Sustainable Wood

Wood Grain has always been very notable in kitchens and cabinetry over the years, however with many people reconnecting with nature over the pandemic; it seems that wooden kitchen interiors have become even more celebrated. The sustainability of wood as a natural material also appeals hugely to people and especially to the ones that have been reminded of how important our environment is. Mass consumption is coming to an end and now is the time to invest in classic, long-lasting products with a sustainabilityconscious mindset. The mood board below reflects a warm and natural Scandinavian aesthetic, again with paint colours that can be found on the likes of Little Greene and Farrow and Ball. We have decided to pair up some neutral beiges, sumptuous browns with a touch of orange and all brought together by light hardwood. Our choice of ironmongery has to be the Polished Chrome Brompton Lever on Rose Set (Art Deco) and the Satin Chrome Regency Concealed Drawer Pull.

 

WoodBlue, Oh So Blue

Navies and blues will stand strong again this year with an introduction to a few lighter tones from the likes of Dulux and Behr. A very noticeable trend that still has a place in the hearts of many interior enthusiasts, hobbyists and DIY'ers. The darker shades of blue will add richness and luxury to your home and the lighter counterparts will promote an airy and tranquil ambience to your home - A soothing and calming atmosphere to one of the busiest areas in the home. All tones of blue will pair well with marble, light and dark woods and brass. We've chosen to pair a darker blue with light oak, some narrow off white ceramic tiles. Our choice of ironmongery has to be our Aged Brass Newbury Lever on Rose Set and the Polished Brass Mushroom Cabinet Knob 38mm.

 

Blue These are some of the many kitchen trends that could develop throughout the year. We hope that you are better equipped and inspired to begin your kitchen refurbishment plans.
