The new year is upon us, and new interior design trends are popping up. So, this week we will discuss 10 Best Kitchen Design Ideas and more.
Interior Design Ideas for the Kitchen 2022
Not all kitchens are as posh as the one shown in the video in a recent article on new kitchen ideas for 2022 from Home Beautiful. However, there is a lot to consider in updating the heart of the any home, the kitchen!
First, head of the line for 10 Best Kitchen Design Ideas is to add Pops of Color. The contrast is a pleasing change to the previous neutral tones in kitchen decor. And second, is expansive Natural Light. And third, a nod to lovable furry friends is to add Pet Friendly Space.
Another new trend is the Cottage Style kitchen. Small kitchens can be styled in such a way as to add a bright and cozy feel. Furthermore, going into 2022, wood-stained kitchen cabinets will still be popular in more traditional kitchens. However, people are becoming bolder when adding pops of color to their kitchens.
Big Statements in New Kitchen Ideas
Conversely, Slab Backsplashes are a fifth trend giving the space a “very clean, modern feel”. The sixth trend is Statement Hoods.
“Architectural statement hoods will be big—and I mean literally!” predicts Drees Homes Design Center’s director, Alexa Drees Walker. “Whites and creams paired with darker, earthy hues will be used to create drama. In a departure from subway tile, marble-inspired quartz countertops will become a newly beloved backsplash option. Gold accents and oversized pendants will remain popular,” she adds.
The remaining four ideas are Hinge Doorways, Natural Materials (back to the wood cabinets mentioned earlier), Storage Space and Hints of Green. Seems like we heard about shades of green in 2021 as well. An article in October 2021 Houz Magazine predicted green as the Top Color 2022. In addition to that you can read a previous blog from The Dias Team Color Trends 2022 for bathrooms and bedrooms.
Marble Versus Granite Countertops Trending in 2022
Of course, there are many more ideas for kitchen updates to talk about. For instance, there is also a continuing trend toward marble countertops in 2022. The first thing to consider is the cost. According to HGTV, “granite is less expensive than marble, starting at roughly $75/square foot installed and $100 more than that for higher-end stone. Installed marble countertops start at around $100/square foot and can go over $200.” But do not stop there, google can be your best friend when trying to find the best deals.
There is so much more to talk about when it comes to kitchens. For now, we will leave you with over 30 new kitchen trends in Home & Gardens for 2022.
