Kitchen Trends for 2022

Are you in the process of planning your new kitchen and you want to know the latest design trends for 2022? Look no further, we have everything you need to know in this handy blog. Being kitchen designers, each year we see designs change, colours going in and out of fashion and textures and materials proving more or less popular.

The whole year of 2020 and the beginning of 2021 saw the nation spending more time at home and more money on their properties. Covid-19 has had a huge impact on how we use our homes now. Below we show you what will be the kitchen trends of 2022 and to incorporate them into your home.

Open shelves

Open shelving is a sought after kitchen design trend because they are a great addition to industrial style as well as french country and shaker kitchens. Open shelves have a warmth to them and add cosiness to large open-plan rooms. Turn the shelf into something functional with plants, vases and cookbooks.

Pretty splashbacks

Mirrored splashbacks have been popular in kitchen designs today with clients opting for decorative ones to match their interior as well as have a great camouflage for dirt. There is a huge choice of finishes available on the market, but the ones we have seen that are most popular are the antique and smoked style ones.

Glass splashback has many pros to them, they reflect the natural daylight throughout the day and add mood lighting in the evening.

Bespoke handmade bars

Throughout the past couple of years, we have been forced to stay at home due to the pandemic, and many homeowners adapted their homes to meet new requirements. The handmade home bar was a trend for the year 2020 and into early 2021 with it continuing to be a firm favourite in the new year. It’s the perfect addition to a home where family and friends can be entertained.

Staying in is the new going out, right?

Light colour palette & statement islands

Greens have been a popular choice for many homes in recent years, but in 2021 we saw the return of more neutral colours. Many homeowners wanted to work with a blank canvas and add pops of colours on statement features. This kind of colour palette is perfect for those who are planning a larger kitchen or selling the property at a later date.

Make sure you choose a colour that is going to stand the test of time, bespoke kitchens are a large investment.


Through the year 2021, we have seen a huge demand for gold and bronze tone accessories. Homeowners are certainly becoming braver and bolder using them around the home especially in the kitchen. Before we only saw slight hints of these tones on the handles or taps, but recently sinks and worktops are being chosen in that finish.

Silver and chrome accents are still just as popular!
