The role that kitchens have played in the home has changed over the recent years. Given that we have all spent far more time indoors from 2020 onwards, it is hardly surprising that the kitchen increasingly serves less as a utilitarian space dedicated to food preparation and more as a social hub… Or sometimes even as a makeshift office… We’ve compiled a number of trending kitchen décor ideas that have caught our eye. Let’s take a closer look at the textures, colours and finishes that will characterize 2022 and beyond.

Nature-Inspired Designs

Choosing a kitchen wallpaper design scheme marked by fresh floral patterns is a great way to inject a sense of life and activity into your dining area. It can also help make the room feel bright, light and spacious. Feature walls are still in style, and will be for quite some time. If you’re feeling bold, you can try adding in a bright large-scale floral pattern to one of the walls in the kitchen. In addition to this, natural textures, like wood, can add depth to your kitchen. Such designs would work well in both contemporary and traditional kitchens.

Green Tones

Green hues, with their associations with nature, are a wonderful way to reconnect us with the great outdoors when we find ourselves confined to our homes. They also pair well with brass accents and marble surfaces to add a slightly more modern-feeling to the naturalness of the room. For a more adventurous approach, consider combining a splash of pink to the green backdrop. Though it’s on the opposite end of the colour wheel, its association with shades of green is perfect for those looking to incorporate nature-inspired elements.

Trendy Two-Toned Kitchens

This might not be a particular colour, but two-tone kitchens are a good idea to embrace as you move away from your old kitchen and think about trying something new. Black and white look particularly good for a modern home. Though, exploring with some brighter and happier colour combos is half the fun!
