The kitchen is the heart of the home, used for gathering and entertaining. In recent years it has taken on more roles, including home office and homework hub. With all the time you spend in the kitchen, you may be starting to notice that it could use a refresh.
Experts say that you should remodel your kitchen once every 10-15 years. If you have an outdated kitchen and are due for a remodel, keep reading to learn about the latest kitchen design trends in 2022.
1. Bold Colours
White kitchens were popular for a long time, but they are now giving way to more colourful spaces. From appliances to flooring to cabinets, there are plenty of ways to infuse colour into your kitchen.
One of the best ways to add colour to your kitchen is to paint the walls. This will change the look and feel of your space and is easy to change at any time. We offer a variety of decorative paints with different structures in a wide range of colour palettes.
Kitchen colours that are trending in 2022 are blues, greens, and pinks. Two-tone kitchens are also popular right now.
2. Wood Finishes
Plain wood cabinets fell out of favour for a while, but they are seeing a resurgence in 2022. The grain patterns and colour variations of natural wood can create a beautiful effect on your kitchen.
Even with natural wood cabinets, you don’t have to miss out on adding colour to your space. Wood stains come in a variety of colours, from natural wood shades to trendy blues and greens.
3. Marble Surfaces
This may not seem like a new design trend, but marble has taken off in 2022. Strongly veined marble is a popular choice for kitchens right now. It makes a statement and creates contrast with other materials such as wood and metals.
Coloured marble is also on trend, specifically green marble. Although its popularity is growing, green marble is still a bit under the radar. Adding this to your kitchen will make your space one-of-a-kind.
If you’re not planning a full kitchen remodel right now, you can still take advantage of this design trend. You can use decorative paints to create a marble effect. This way, you won’t have to completely replace your countertops or backsplash.
Sustainability is important to keep in mind when designing your home and the kitchen is no exception. Using materials from sustainable sources is key when working on kitchen improvements. If you are painting your walls or cabinets, be sure to use paints and stains with low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
You can also embrace sustainability by adding vintage furniture to your kitchen. Instead of building a new island, try repurposing a vintage table to use as your island. Use our polyurethane (PU) lacquers to protect the furniture from water, heat, and mechanical damage.
The Best Paints for Your Kitchen
Since the kitchen is a workspace, you need to use the proper type of paint when adding colour. We offer both anti-bacterial and anti-scratch solutions that are perfect for the kitchen. The anti-scratch paint has several variations – matt, gloss, semi-gloss, pigmented, and clear.
