Trendy Kitchen Designs and Ideas for 2022
The trendiest kitchen designs for 2022 align the old and the new in surprisingly original ways. You don’t need to forget everything you ever knew about kitchen remodelling to create a trendy new kitchen for 2022. Recycling and repurposing traditional furniture and using sustainable natural materials is very on trend for the coming year. Hudson Homes lists the top new kitchen trends in New South Wales and Queensland homes. From warm timber tones and natural innovative countertop materials to aesthetic multi-purpose storage solutions, we feature the best of modern kitchen designs.
Return of Wood and Natural Elements for Modern Kitchen Cabinets
Timber elements are not an unheard-of material for new kitchen designs, but we are seeing a resurgence of unpainted or lightly treated timber tones in modern kitchen cabinets and shelves. The warmth and depth provided by these timber colours and grains brings out the warmer accents in stone features and countertops. They also create a welcoming aesthetic to stark white or darker toned kitchens.
Innovative Mixed Materials in New Kitchen Designs
A key trend we are seeing in new kitchen designs is the use of innovative mixed materials. There is a combination of warm timber tones with metallic fixtures and features, combined with stone in new kitchen designs. We are seeing modern kitchen cabinets made of less common wood varieties, industrial style statement range hoods in unusual metals, and a growing popularity in gold kitchen tapware. Ask Hudson Homes about innovative countertop materials for the kitchen of your new house and we can accommodate your personal style and preferred aesthetic.
Aesthetic Storage Solutions & Utility Rooms for New Image Kitchens
There are some interesting new image kitchens incorporating a large pantry annex, or large storage pantry cupboards in the modern kitchen designs. It’s both an aesthetic and a functional change. As a practical storage solution, it is convenient to have your food stored in one location, instead of tucked away in various cupboards around your kitchen. From a design perspective, it frees up large areas of the wall to feature single shelves, artwork, or windows. Some large multi-purpose pantry cupboards have fold out storage features, so you can create a quasi-office space in the heart of your kitchen.
Glazed Tile Splashback in Australian Kitchen Designs
Australian kitchen designs come and go, and we are all familiar with the tile or subway tile kitchen splashback. This year’s variant sees a change from matte tiles to glossy tiles that reflect in the ambient light. They are practical, easy to clean, and the effect of the gloss contrasts well with the warmth of untreated timber.
Mixing Antiques with Contemporary Kitchens
Modern kitchen designs are finding ways to repurpose classic pieces and recombine them within contemporary spaces. The aesthetic of using old fashioned furniture and custom statement pieces moves the modern kitchen away from the stark showroom aesthetic and towards something more lived-in. The choice of one-off pieces, possibly sourced from an antique store or made of natural fibres, also dovetails into the sustainable environmental ethos that is so on trend in 2022.
