Considered the heart of the home, the role of ours kitchens have adapted over the past couple of years to become a multi-functional epicentre where we can eat, work, relax and socialise. As we spend more time than ever in our kitchens, you will won't be alone if you are considering planning an upgrade this year. We've taken a look at three hot trending kitchen ideas for 2023 and selected our pick of rustic furniture to sit beautifully alongside these hot new designs.
3 Top Kitchen Trends for 2022
Back to nature
As in the rest of our homes, we are looking to connect with nature wherever possible and this trend extends in the kitchen too. The colour we are seeing again and again in the kitchen is green - in particular a muted sage or mint green, together with a deeper rich hue. We think this colour is the perfect companion for reclaimed wood furniture - natural wood is another way to connect with nature making it the ideal material to pair with a green kitchen, not to mention it being the eco-friendly option.
The Standford industrial extendable table is the perfect choice for this with the green gently softening the cool industrial look. Crafted in reclaimed wood this timeless table will be a home staple for years to come.
Darker rooms have gained popularity in interior design over the past couple of years with interior designers opting for darker shades of teal, green, grey and blue. These rich tonal colours are a great way to bring some atmosphere into the kitchen and dark navy blue units are especially having a moment. If a wall of kitchen units is too much for your space, paint an accent wall or tile your splash back in a dark blue; you can even add some sumptuous dark blue velvet dining chairs around a kitchen table to bring in this on-trend hue.
We think the golden colour of a mango wood dining table is the perfect fit for a darker kitchen, adding another layer of depth and warmth to your decor.
Black and white is classic colour scheme that is making waves in kitchen design. If you opt for white kitchen units you can bring in black in so many ways - wall tiles, black marble work surfaces, new floor tiles, even a kettle and toaster. The same applies in reverse - a black kitchen with white walls and accessories make a instant eye-catching interior scheme. To complement this minimal design choose a statement dining table like the striking Blackbone rustic oak dining table in your dining space to complete the look. The solid dark oak set in an appealing parquet pattern will sit very comfortably next to a white or black kitchen.
Natural textures are a big deal for 2022 and the return of woodgrain in the kitchen is predicted. Natural wood will appear on units, work surfaces, floors and even walls. Pair this with neutral colours for a bright and airy feel, along with other natural accents. Any reclaimed wood dining table will work well with woodgrain units although the Chelwood Reclaimed Wood Dining Table is our top pick. Bring in plenty of different textures to pair with a natural wood kitchen - wicker storage baskets, natural weave covers on upholstered dining chairs or rattan dining chairs, faux leather dining chairs would also look great. Or keep it natural with modern wooden dining chairs and a wooden dining bench with a faux fur throw.
