Top Kitchen Colours for 2022

If you’re building a new home or remodelling an existing kitchen, you’re in luck because kitchen colour trends in 2022 are gorgeous! We’ll continue to see painted kitchen cabinetry as a top trend in kitchen design, however there are more affordable options as well.

Green is definitely in

The colour green embodies a sense of renewal and growth, so it's only fitting for these times we are in that it would be a top choice when it comes to kitchens. From bold emerald, deep forest greens to restful sage and balancing grey green mid tones, there's a shade to suit every style.

It is often relegated to more traditional styles and yet, this year is going to see the brilliant use of green even in modern and contemporary spaces. Green kitchens feel elegant and dashing with lighter tones and shades that have white, cream or grey mixed into them being the most popular. Deep green brings a sense of heritage and tradition, ideal for shaker kitchens, whilst mid greens and minty tones add a fresh update to modern doors and adaptable grey-based sage works on just about any door style. With painted kitchens, you can choose any green tone you can find in a paint colour. By going with a melamine or wrap finish, you can choose between PG Bison Caraz or Espresso. If you’re looking for a way to add some life to your kitchen cabinets and make a statement, green is the way to go.

Embracing Black

For the past few years, you would have noticed the huge popularity of white, grey and wood in the kitchen. However, black interiors are gaining popularity. Searches for ‘dark’ and ‘black’ interiors appear in its most popular list for the first time, while searches for ‘black kitchen’ have increased 46% year on year. If you love black, then now is the time to try it out in the kitchen! Not one for the faint-hearted, a black kitchen creates a real show-stopping moment.

We've seen the tuxedo (two-tone) kitchen, white cabinets on the top and black on the bottom, trending for some time, but this look is about going top to bottom with this dramatic choice. While black cabinets can seem harsh, using them as an accent or with white walls and appliances is a minimalist look that works in any home. Choosing a black island with white or stained cabinets can make a beautiful statement.

Blue remains strong

White kitchens are safe, but if you like colour, then embrace it! Blue immediately creates a wow factor and deep hues give a classic feel that never feels overly trendy. Rich blues are set to make a big impact in kitchens this year as well. Instead of lighter and more muted shades of blue, try jewel-toned hues, deep blue, peacock blue, cobalt and lighter hues of velvet in the kitchen this time around.

Blues are perfect for people looking for a bold yet sophisticated kitchen and work so well with metallics such as brass and copper. Even if you have a kitchen draped in neutral hues, a kitchen island in deep blue is bound to create plenty of visual impact. Blue particularly works well with wooden textures and can be found in any paint finish, PG Bison Petrol Blue or Innovus Shadow Blue.

Grey is being replaced with Greige

Greige, also known as Taupe, is a made-up term for that middle ground between grey and beige and like most neutrals it is flexible. Greige is a way to keep that light and airy feel but stay up to date. One of the reasons greige kitchens might be trending in popularity is that greige complements and goes beautifully and with brass, warm wood, crisp white quartz or white.

It offers a warm, natural tone that is both calming and welcoming. In addition, greige provides an excellent backdrop for colourful accents. Dark greige kitchen cabinets will give you a modern feel, while light greige will make your kitchen look traditional and timeless. In the PG Bison range, have a look at Congo or in the Innovus rage Cotton or Basalt.
