Each year, new design trends come into vogue as tastes, needs, and technology continue to develop. The design choices of the past are not the same as today. As they continue to evolve, the design team at National Lumber is here to keep you up to date with the latest kitchen design trends you can implement during your next renovation project. Here are the kitchen design trends for winter 2022 – 2023.
1. Double Islands
Double islands are quickly becoming a popular choice for many homeowners. Two islands can serve the kitchen space by having a separate place to dine and cook. The multi-use islands allow for the kitchen to have a gathering area that is not restricted to the dining table.
2. Statement / Metallic Hoods
If you want to give your kitchen a piece that provides a gourmet aesthetic, a metallic hood is a great way to go. By breaking up monotonous design choices and backsplashes, a metallic hood over your stove makes a beautiful statement piece.
3. Retro Style Kitchens
Ironically, 50’s retro-style kitchens are making a wave in modern kitchen design. With popping colors and wavy curves, introducing a retro-style design to your kitchen will bring about an exciting feeling that has a vintage vibe.
4. Smart Partitions
If you have an open space between your kitchen and another room in your home, you should consider a smart partition. These are thoughtful ways to divide spaces. Featuring unique shapes, smart partitions are visually pleasing while also serving to elegantly separate the two rooms.
5. Sociable Kitchen Design
Pandemic distancing and lockdowns created the desire to embrace the kitchen as a gathering space now that it is safe to do so. Kitchens with a focus on sociability and entertaining have exploded in popularity. These kitchen designs feature a large open space and several entrances and exits.
6. Minimalist Kitchens
A minimalist kitchen has become a favorable choice to bring a luxurious feeling to any kitchen. This style features simple colors, usually black and white, and minimal design flare to maintain the contemporary, luxury aesthetic.
7. Reclaimed Materials
Reclaimed materials such as barn wood and revitalized industrial metals will make your kitchen feel vintage and rustic. Using these materials to revitalize your kitchen has become increasingly prevalent in modern kitchens and is a growing kitchen design trend for winter 2022.
8. Patterned Backsplashes and Interiors
Patterned backsplashes, strategically placed around the kitchen and in closet and cabinet interiors liven up any kitchen. With a wide variety of patterns and colors, the possibilities of combinations are endless.
Complimenting your kitchen design with mirrors is an effective way to increase the perceived space in your kitchen. Implementing mirrors into your cabinets and/or backsplashes brings a unique metropolitan feeling to your kitchen.
10. Glazed Tiles
Glazed tiles offer your kitchen an incredibly unique and beautiful look. The gloss on the tiles works as a reflector of your kitchen’s natural light. The glazed tiles are easy to clean and can be paired with rustic wood or marble to even further enhance the kitchen’s visual appeal.
