When it comes to kitchen colours, the use of the entire colour palette has gained popularity in recent years. It used to be that you could only use white, brown, or grey. For those who own their first home, the kitchen is an interesting space to decorate because they have probably never thought about it before, and now that they are in front of it, dozens of ideas must be running through your mind.
They understand that the colour palette sets the tone for the design and atmosphere of any home – even the most basic argument becomes vivid, vivid and memorable when the exact colour palette is used. This is especially true in the kitchen, where she usually spends a lot of time at home.
Natural neutral shades to oak, petrol green, and charcoal (with black accents) to sage, the upcoming exotic shades (palette dominated by orange becomes an important colour choice), and vivid and bold choices like deep blue or dark, intense tonalities are among the 2022 season’s trend colours.
1. Grey colour scheme for the kitchen
A monochromatic colour scheme for any space, including the kitchen, is very modern. If you want to go monochromatic, make sure to vary the tones and tints of the colour, as well as the sheen and texture. Take note of the grey variations in the floor, cabinetry (upper and lower), countertops, and a lighting fixture in this kitchen. When these elements are combined, the result is intriguing and has a lot of visual depth.
2. White along with different hues
Of course, if you like the look of a white kitchen but want to deviate just a little from the trending all-white kitchen, there are subtle colour options. Keep the white theme going with plain windows, a marble countertop and backsplash, and a white farmhouse sink. Paint the cabinets a pale grey-green colour, then accent with metallic hardware, fixtures, and accessories. As a result, the kitchen feels almost ethereal…without being completely white.
3. Light Neutrals and Fuchsia
Because the walls of a kitchen are naturally broken up by cabinetry, appliances, backsplashes, and so on, even the most vibrant colours will appear muted. That means you can go with your favourite shade of pink (fuchsia!) without fear of it being overpowering.
4. Trending Kitchen cabinet materials and finishes
When it comes to kitchen design, there is a noticeable trend in the range of materials that comprise the kitchen and appliances. An advanced colour palette combined with high-quality materials such as wood, concrete, Corian, glass or organic glass, ceramics, stone, or metal in various shades becomes the recipe for a one-of-a-kind and beautiful kitchen design. The designers experiment with surface statements – dull and shiny, dark and light, with and without handles – each with their density and appearance. The materials used in an industrial kitchen are influenced by modern and classic styles. Concrete is the undisputed star of the material trends for modern kitchens in 2022. Cement tops, shelves, shelves, tables, or doors add a unique touch to the environment, making it feel young and modern.
Concrete pairs well with metal, which is another 2022 trend. Modern kitchens with a corten effect, covered in gold or silver leaf, or with brass details, such as faucets and sinks, are ideal for those who prefer a simple, yet innovative and extravagant style. Steel is also timeless, ideal for a professional-style kitchen, as it is extremely resistant, clean, and linear.
5. Steel and coral
Certainly, it is a more subtle alteration of the discussed previously red-black-white color scheme, but the effect is still light and airy. Keeping the white colour on the cabinets and walls (the perimeter of the kitchen) and incorporating some steel elements in appliances helps to keep the focus on the coral centre island. However, a thick white countertop throughout adds cohesion, even when the cabinetry is different. This is a key component of modern style – one of simplicity and consistency among design variations.
6. Slate, Honey, and Cherry Wood
This vibrant colour palette is warm, cosy, and inviting. Because the colours themselves lean toward the darker end of the spectrum, it works best with natural light. This updated kitchen dates from the slightly post-mid-century modern era (the 1970s), but it couldn’t be more current.
