What type of kitchens are we going to be seeing at the end of 2021 and throughout 2022? Here are eight trends that can serve as inspiration for your upcoming projects.

 

Calming kitchens

Interiors have a direct impact on how we feel.  Using pale colours and natural timbers evokes a sense of serenity and harmony.

 

Kitchens that take us back to our roots

The recent turban exodus has seen us turn back to our roots and places from the past.  The increase in the number of renovations has also influenced kitchen design, making rustic materials the perfect choice for contemporary kitchens.

 

Kitchens made for socialising

We all need to reconnect with others, and what better way to do so than around the kitchen table.  Big islands, as well as smaller and more versatile ones, can act as a hub for daily activities.  Italian design is all about sophisticated, simple, and timeless spaces in which you are guaranteed to feel at home.

 

Industrial, yet cosy kitchens

Combine the functionality and hygiene of a professional kitchen with a cosy touch that connects the space with the rest of the home.

 

Colourful kitchens

Colour transmits optimism and positivity.  It’s all about being flexible with the spaces in our home: we can work remotely in the same place that we cook, work out, and more.  The sky is the limit.

 

Neutral ‘total look’ kitchens

The ‘total look’ kitchen is a big trend.  It’s all about using the same style for a set of features so that it all ties together.  Big cupboards and pantries with columns have also become very popular in the last few years.

 

Sensorial kitchens

These are spaces that reconnect us to our senses and that heavily feature impactful textures, inspired by the beauty of imperfection and hand-made wares.

 

Cultural fusion kitchens

These kitchens take us on a journey with their use of materials, which is especially important during this time when our movements have been restricted.  Materials can help us connect with our inner source of inspiration.
