Top Kitchen Trends for 2022

Posted January 12, 2022

As people spend more time in their homes due to the ongoing pandemic, there’s been a greater need to transform these spaces. And where are families spending the most time? Their kitchens!

Because kitchens are the ‘heart’ of the home, they’re often the first room to get a makeover. Kitchen remodels don’t just refresh the appearance of a kitchen but also make it more functional and practical.

Let’s check out the top kitchen trends to keep an eye out for in 2022. By including some of these features in your kitchen renovation, you can take home a greater ROI for your project.

Kitchen Storage Solutions

Keeping an organized kitchen allows you to get more done in less time because you know where everything is. It also alleviates the frustration of having to pull out heavy pots and pans and small appliances from narrow cabinets.

While you can buy inexpensive storage solutions online, they often end up looking cheap and detached from the rest of the kitchen. A better option is to upgrade your cabinets with the latest storage such as pull-out pantries and spice racks, built-in cutting board slots and rollout drawers.

Opening the Kitchen to the Outdoors

Bringing the outdoors in is a wonderful way to increase natural light, boost the mood and enjoy more of your backyard. You can achieve this goal with new windows, a new patio door or a moving glass wall system. Andersen Windows has a great selection of replacement windows and exterior doors that will help you achieve this goal.

Neutral Kitchen Palettes

Not sure what to paint your kitchen? Neutral colors are typically best because the kitchen should flow with the rest of the home. Classic kitchen colors include white, beige and gray. That said, designers are expecting 2022 to be the first year that green shades like fresh mint, olive and coriander become popular for kitchens.

Oversized Kitchen Islands

Kitchen islands are bigger and bolder than ever before, and we can expect this trend to continue throughout 2022. Islands are practical - they provide extra meal prep and dining space, plus additional seating and space to hang out and socialize. You can also install drawers, appliances, shelves and cabinets in the island for added functionality.

Mixing Textures and Features

You can also expect to see more mixing between colors, textures and features. For example, a modern kitchen might have sharp angles and soft curves, or shiny metallic and wood accents. Playing with textures is an easy and affordable way to make your kitchen more attractive and unique. Just make sure you consult with a designer so that everything comes together harmoniously!
