Sleek simplicity

Streamlined kitchens are a huge trend and design for 2022. Integrated appliances, built-in storage, and smooth, uninterrupted lines are a popular request as technological advances in push-open and close doors means that it has become possible to dispense with handles in both wall and base cabinets. Streamlined kitchens offer an easy clean and are high up on a safety level with young children with no protruding handles to get in the way.

Smart kitchens

Apps and technology are becoming entwined in our homes and the kitchen is no exception, as wireless technology allows us to control our heating, lighting and cooking appliances at the touch of a button. Upgrading to a smart kitchen can increase the value of your home and provide a variety of conveniences to your favourite kitchen appliances.

These internet-connected devices and appliances have more functional advantages than traditional ones due to:

  • User-friendly features
  • Environmental-friendly elements
  • Stylish modern design that will increase the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen


Bold colours

Kitchens are one of the most functional spaces in the home, but that doesn’t mean they need to be bland, and the trend for using bold, dark colours in the kitchen is increasing. Forest green and burgundy are joining navy as top ranking colours, to make an inviting statement. Darker colours look beautiful with metallic finishes such as brass and copper, the possibilities are endless.

Kitchen islands

With the move towards larger kitchens, in open plan spaces, the kitchen island has become an essential kitchen feature. They have become focal points and the hub of the kitchen. The kitchen island is meant to create an impact, and its design must make a statement but also be functional. Storage solutions, hidden appliances and seating are the main designs we are asked to accommodate.

Statement seating

The list of seating trends is endless and it may just be time to ditch the traditional table and chairs combination. Bench seating is increasingly popular, offering a multitude of functional and stylish benefits. It can provide a space saving option, fitting into a corner and is perfect for the busy family as the bench seats plenty but requires little floorspace.

The modern pantry

The Victorians really were onto something when they designed the pantry, and in our ever growing need for storage it’s certainly making a comeback. Not only beneficial in storing food, appliances can also find a home there. Kitchen pantries can come in all shapes and sizes, and with so many practical and stylish designs to choose from, you will wonder how you ever managed without one.
