According to the 2022 U.S. Kitchen Trends Study conducted by Houzz, homeowners are spending more money than ever before on their kitchens.
There is no single perfect kitchen design that suits every home. Before you start planning your trendy new kitchen interior, start by defining your lifestyle and your expectations for the space. Are you a homebody who loves to cook? Do you eat every meal with your family and enjoy chatting around the table? Or maybe you spend minimal time in the kitchen and prefer eating out? Whatever your needs and preferences are, your space should respond to them.
As you evaluate ideas for your stunning new kitchen, here are seven leading trends to consider.
1. Cabinets that are warm and earthy.
This year marks the evolution from stark white towards cozy vibes in the kitchen. Warmer white or taupe kitchen cabinets are a great choice. Grey-blues fit the bill, too, and are a good option for those who prefer a splash of soft color. Natural wood cabinets are trending strong and offer an ideal way to boost the cozy factor. Grained walnut or oak mixed with white is classic and timeless.
2. Quartz countertops are still king.
White shades of quartz remain the most popular kitchen countertop trend. Quartz is well-loved for its beauty and durability. The material is extremely hardy, can last virtually forever, is a breeze to maintain, and is even anti-microbial. It’s a smart choice for those who love the look of marble but not its high maintenance.
3. White appliances are all the rage.
White appliances are a hot color choice for today’s kitchens. While they used to say ‘dated’, the most recent iterations of white (smudge-proof!) appliances are sleek, stylish, and beautiful.
4. Strategically-placed wall tile is a thing.
For years, tile has served a strictly utilitarian purpose: a low-maintenance layer that protects walls from spills and splashes. But this year, tile is front and center. It’s pretty, simple to install, and easy to clean. With so many shapes and colors to choose from, homeowners can use tile to showcase their personal style.
5. What’s old is new again.
If you prefer antiques, vintage style answers the call. Vintage kitchens radiate warmth and comfort, bring elegance to the interior, and create unique enchantment. Try an heirloom table in place of an island or a cabinet filled with delicate antique ceramics to add a dose of charm. Indoor plants are a natural fit for the vintage kitchen, giving it a dash of freshness and cheer. Spruce up your space with some pretty flowers, potted plants, or an indoor herb garden.
6. Ceramic tile is gaining traction.
Hardwood flooring is still very popular for kitchens but ceramic tile is getting more attention. Thanks to new advances in technology, ceramic flooring now comes in a wide variety of gorgeous designs, styles, and sizes. For example, you can get ceramic tiles that look exactly like hardwood flooring. So, if you want to retain the look of hardwood but prefer a material that’s easier to maintain, consider using ceramic. Ceramic tiles can even be designed to resemble a range of other materials, including natural stone and brick.
7. Details make the difference.
Small finishing touches can make your kitchen space feel special. This year, elements that function as impactful accents are taking on a larger role rather than being cast in the background. Think designer switch plates and elegant pull handles, for example. If you’re looking to add a pop of color, consider some vibrant dish towels or exotic dinnerware.
The kitchen has long been considered the heart of the home. After spending the majority of the past two years in our houses, we’ve gained a whole new appreciation for these hardworking culinary spaces.
