Remodeling / September 6, 2022
We’ve seen a lot of kitchen trends over the past few decades. Remember harvest gold and avocado green colours from the 1960s? If you’re not that old, maybe you remember the back-to-nature look from the 1970s. Some kitchen trends have stuck around. Granite countertops became popular in the 90s, and they’re probably even more popular today than they were 30 years ago. If you’re thinking about transforming your kitchen with a remodelling project, here are some of the 2022 trends we’re seeing. Ask us about remodelling services in Mississauga.
Kitchen islands became popular in the 80s, and they still are very common in modern kitchens. The new trend in islands is to add colour that contrasts with the rest of the kitchen to make it pop. 2022 colour trends include rich earth tones and nature-inspired greens. A sunny yellow is another popular colour for kitchens today. Don’t be afraid to add some interesting touches to your kitchen island.
Kitchens with natural materials, such as stone, wood and terra cotta, have been popular for years. Some urban homes have eschewed the rustic look as it isn’t contemporary enough for a city house. Rustic design is making a comeback, even in modern homes that prefer sleek, clean lines. The key is to use unpretentious materials in a thoughtful way to get that rustic style while still having an elegant and stylish kitchen.
Wallpaper hasn’t been the most popular material in kitchens, but it’s making a statement in 2022. You can add a splash of colour and texture with bright wallpaper. Wallpaper is a nice way to add a trendy element to your kitchen without a complete remodel. Choose a wallpaper that will fit your current design. If your kitchen is mostly neutral colours, go with something intricate or unique. If your kitchen has a lot of bold and vibrant colours and designs, choose a simpler wallpaper pattern. Wallpaper is often unable to withstand the kitchen environment. Use wallpaper designed for kitchens or hang it in places that aren’t vulnerable to water damage.
Open shelving is a big trend in modern kitchens for many reasons. You can see and use your kitchen dishes more frequently, which cuts down on grease and grime. Open shelving makes your kitchen feel larger and more spacious. You may even get more shelving in your kitchen because you can utilize more of the vertical space. Put shelving over the doorway, where you wouldn’t be able to have any cabinetry. Open shelving may even be less expensive than cupboards if you’re doing a complete remodel.
If there’s one big trend for today’s kitchens, it’s colour. Backsplashes used to be colourless and neutral. Modern backsplashes are bright and bold, a canvas for exciting artwork in your kitchen. You no longer need to stick to the same square tiling, either. Use a variety of tiles to get a unique design behind your stove. Go all the way to the ceiling if you choose. Find some specialty tiles that complement your kitchen’s style and be creative.
Your kitchen probably gets more use than any other room in the home. Many people aren’t just eating and cooking in the kitchen today. We study or work in the kitchen. Maybe your kids play games in the breakfast nook. You want your kitchen to be the room it needs to be for your lifestyle. Talk to the remodelling specialists with Handyman Connection. Whether you want a few changes or a complete remodel for your Mississauga home, we can get the job done to your specifications to update your kitchen.
