Kitchen Trends for 2022

Layered lighting, glass partitions, glazed tile backsplash, mixing vintage and antique style are just a few of the latest trends for kitchens this year.

Whether you are planning on remodeling or building your dream kitchen from scratch, the latest in-demand trends will help you on your design journey. From bold cabinetry colors and interesting antique looking kitchens to more functional ideas—such as concealed storage or the incorporation of smart-tech—there are plenty of options for every kitchen, regardless of the size or style.

According to Glazed Tile Backsplash is the chic thing to do this year.

“A tiled kitchen backsplash is nothing new, but there will be a shift away from matt finishes and towards gloss. A glazed tile is not just easy to clean – it will also reflect the light around the room, with effective results regardless of the color.

Interior designer Natalia Miyar has these richly hued green kitchen tiles handmade in Florence. ‘Paired with the rustic wood and marble work surfaces, they create a really beautiful contrast with the earthy colors, as well as adding different layers of texture to the space,’ she explains. You don't need to use a saturated shade to enjoy the full impact.

For a more muted look, choose glazed white tiles, which will certainly make the most of the natural light. Zelliges will also remain a popular choice. Handcrafted in Morocco, these distinctive glazed clay tiles, with their irregular surface and varying tones, bring texture and artisan character to a scheme.”

Furthermore they assure that the mix of elegant antique pieces as well as vintage items will make your kitchen stand out with character.

“Future kitchen trends are about dispelling any notions of a show home, and introducing some antique or vintage furniture into a kitchen has the immediate effect of creating a warm, lived-in home environment. Farmhouse kitchen furniture in the form of a scrubbed kitchen table or dresser is the obvious choice for a traditional look. Timeless, built to last and often inexpensive to find at vintage fairs, antique pieces will introduce character to a new space.

This design by Ben Pentreath was a 21st-century take on a Welsh farmhouse kitchen. Simple joinery, including a large larder cupboard and open shelves, combines with a butler’s sink, Delft tiles, period-style lighting and antique furniture to create a timeless feel, perfectly in keeping with the house’s architectural style.”

While homes and gardens suggest vintage is the way to go, others disagree and say that the futuristic more up to date technology integrated in kitchens is the way to go.

According to Woman and Home. “The rise of smart-tech in our homes has seen a steady increase in recent years. And 2022 might just be the year when kitchen smart-tech makes its way outdoors too, according to expert predictions for kitchen and garden trends in 2022:

“Outdoor smart kitchens are the natural progression from indoor smart kitchens,” explains Duncan Aird, co-founder and designer at Outdoor Kitchen Expert. “Homeowners will be able to set up and control their outdoor kitchens from their smartphones with a whole host of Wi-Fi enabled appliances and equipment.”

Aird suggests a few ways you can incorporate the smart outdoor kitchen trend into your garden. His ideas include:

  • Ambient LED lighting—which allows you to properly illuminate your outside space
  • HD weather-resistant smart TVs and projectors—that can be hidden away until required
  • Integrated surround-sound AV systems—connected to your chosen streaming service
  • WiFi-enabled BBQs, grills and smokers—allowing you to cook to your exact specifications from your phone
  • WiFi-controlled heating features—such as fire pits and wireless smart heaters
  • But above all else, Duncan Aird recommends considering a high-tech canopy. “Enabling use of your outside space year-round, the canopy blades can be adjusted at the touch of a button to track the sun or tilted to catch a breeze,” he explains. “Rain sensors can also automatically close the roof to keep from a passing rain shower.”

Whether you are into vintage or high tech, the answer here is stick to what moves and inspires you and then check out what’s the most recent trend related to it so that you can be aware of what could be longer lasting in terms of style decor for your future kitchen project.
