Fabri: 5 Kitchen Design Trends To Keep An Eye On

The kitchen is where the magic happens. A place where life is lived to the full and the fondest memories are made. If keeping with the latest design innovations, here are 5 spectacular kitchen design trends to keep an eye on in 2022.

1. Natural Light

Light, bright and open plan kitchens are the way of the future. Designers are embracing this most useful design element in the layout of modern kitchens. In fact, natural light (and an abundance thereof) is fast becoming a selling point in contemporary kitchens. Top tip: Opt for larger windows in the kitchen or doors that open to a courtyard or garden. The presence of natural light makes a kitchen feel more alive – a brighter, happier space in which to do life and those daily chores like cooking, cleaning and eating meals together.

Need extra lighting in the kitchen? Why not add a spectacular skylight overhead for a statement in this room!

2. Clean, Modern Backsplashes

We are seeing the trend shift toward clean, minimalistic finishes in the kitchen. Therefore, the latest slab backsplashes are a worthy addition to a modern space. Not only streamlined and clean, but it also removes all those grout lines you’d normally associate with a tiled backsplash. And we’re creating a uniform look from counter to wall in one striking slab. Could you ask for anything better on your kitchen walls? We think not!

3. Natural Materials


Nature is always at the forefront of design and over the past few years, sustainability has become a big trend. Choose natural materials like stone and wood to achieve this aesthetic. As we spend more time indoors, we are also quickly looking for ways to bring the outdoors in, and this is a great way to embrace the trend in your kitchen. Natural materials furthermore, create a beautiful blank canvas where you can play around with colour and other elements.

4. A Burst of Colour

Colour is definitely making a comeback in the kitchen in 2022, and we’re loving it! Gone are the days of white on white. This is in fact making way for pops of colour that will enhance your space and give your kitchen some personality.  It’s a great way to add your own personal touch. Modern art is a fun addition to brighten up a kitchen. Contemporary coloured cabinets is another way to add interest and a chic look in your space.

5. Country Style Kitchens

The kitchen has never been more appealing. As with the pandemic, many of us took to our own kitchens to experiment with meals. This means the kitchen is fast taking on its own personality and country style spaces are setting the trend. According to the experts, country design is a culmination of French vintage, shabby chic and rustic, though how much of each style influences your preferred country ambience, is entirely up to you. Top tip: Achieve the country look with built-in storage and be sure to make use of every little space.
