2022 Kitchen Design Trends | Big Chill


If recent years prior have taught us anything; life is too unpredictable and delicate to live within the confines of a rulebook. This new lust for life and adventure extends to home design, as we are now spending more time in our homes than ever before. Gone are the times where home design is bland and boring, as kitchens of the future welcome colors, textures, and materials that were previously shunned from your average home. Kitchen design is continuously showcasing innovative design ideas and clever twists on old appliances, melting modern and vintage aesthetics with state-of-the-art performance. Create a space you love in 2022 to nurture and nourish from the sanctity of your own kitchen.

Looking for color inspiration? An interesting color palette is in year after year. Check out our Big Chill Custom Color Swatch with over 200 custom colors and shades.

Banquettes

In addition to being one of the hottest kitchen trends of 2022, banquettes are great space savers, creating nooks with plenty of seating for groups of various sizes. Adding a banquette to your kitchen is one of the easiest ways to create a cozy spot to gather for daily meals or cups of morning coffee. Banquettes come in all shapes and sizes, offering a perfect solution for smaller kitchens or kitchens with awkwardly-shaped spaces. In general, banquettes are made for corners, although banquettes can also be created out of unused wall space. Mix in traditional dining chairs for a great way to get more seats around your table.

Glazed Tile Backsplash

While a tiled kitchen backsplash has always been in style, in 2022 there will be a shift away from matte finishes toward more glossy, shiny surfaces. Glazed tile is not only easy to clean, it also helps reflect the light around the room, illuminating the space with effective results regardless of color.

Glazed tiles work with a variety of textures and surfaces, from rustic wood to polished marble surfaces. Pair with metallics for a welcomed contrast of materials that brings character to any design scheme.

Singular Open Shelf

Looking to elevate your kitchen? Kitchens require a lot of supplies, ingredients, and accessories, making the risk of a visual overload particularly high. For those with more minimalist design tastes, using a singular open shelf in your kitchen allows for simplified design impact, while also creating the perfect surface to showcase your kitchens most aesthetically pleasing treasures. When working with open kitchen storage, a curated display is always essential. Use your single open shelf for artwork, plants, or kitchen accessories to gift guests an idea of your personal tastes and interests.

Statement Metal Hoods

While many European kitchens consider hoods a necessity, the American approach to hoods has been more celebratory, with strong statements being made with custom-made designs in unusual finishes. In 2022, matching statement hoods are set to take off in a big way, especially in eye catching metal surfaces and sophisticated finishes. Adding a canopy to a kitchen scheme provides shape and sculpture that balances the angular lines of the surrounding cabinets and panels.

Natural Elements

With many of us being called to nature in light of recent world events, the use of natural materials has increased considerably with strengthened appeal in marble, granite, and unpainted wooden kitchen cabinets. Natural materials in your kitchen not only provide a rich aesthetic quality, but are increasingly being recognized for their health benefits by reducing the amount of chemically treated items in the home. Pair natural surfaces, like wood and marble, with polished metallics or bright colors for a contrast that intertwines both natural elements and modern design.

Pops of Color

2022 presents us with the opportunity to throw the rulebook out the window when it comes to unexpected paint-color pairings, bringing to mind the colorful kitchens of decades past. From appliances to flooring, kitchen tiles to cabinets, modern kitchens are rife with color opportunities.

Choose a kitchen color scheme that will keep you feel satisfied long term, as choosing color is a personal experience and no one knows if we all even see the myriad of shades the same way. Different colors can evoke different emotions, from warm tones to cool tones and everything in between. No color is off limit for your kitchen in 2022, so its up to you to pick the one that best represents your tastes and personality.
