If you’re planning to refresh, redecorate, or remodel your kitchen or bathroom in the new year, you’ll be happy to know that the future is looking bright for these rooms of your house! There are some exciting new trends coming down the pipeline that will be very welcome in your project. 2022 is shaping up to be a great year for luxurious, spa-like bathrooms and elegant kitchens with lots of built-in functionality. Paying attention to these trends in design and in appliances will help you to create a bathroom or kitchen that is stylish and fresh while also being a treat to use every day.
If you want to add an incredible amount of functionality to your kitchen while also maintaining a very sleek, modern appearance, a built-in sink workstations is the thing to look for. These sinks are typically at least 32 to 33 inches long, if not more, to allow room for the work surfaces, so make sure you have enough space to allow for this feature. Once you have a sink workstation installed, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. The most obvious use for it is to wash produce on the rack and chop it on the cutting board, but that’s just the beginning of what sink workstation can do. The rack can be used to dry dishes, different accessories can be added to hold bowls for prepared ingredients or colanders, and carving a large piece of meat or a chicken becomes infinitely easier to clean up when the juices run off your cutting board into your sink instead of onto your counter.
The designs of both kitchens and bathrooms in the coming year will most likely be very distinctive thanks to the design language emphasizing curved lines. Some bathroom and kitchen styles can be very sharp and angular in their appearance, but this year, that’s not what you should expect to see. Smooth, graceful curves will be all over the place, from appliances to furniture, and one of the most prominent places you will see this trend is in faucets and other fixtures. When selecting new fixtures for your bathroom or kitchen this year, don’t be afraid to lean away from the straight-edged varieties and lean towards something a little softer and more rounded.
Wanting your bathroom to make you feel like you’re visiting a high-end spa every day seems to be a pretty universal sentiment, and that desire is being reflected in the shower trends of the coming year. The grand majority of popular shower styles that you can expect to see in 2022 will be sleek and simple with lots of luxurious elements. Walk-in showers with glass paneling will be very on trend, as will rain showerheads and multiple showerheads to provide that indulgent, spa-like experience. These will be great options for you to consider if you want to create a peaceful little oasis in your bathroom, and at the end of the day, who doesn’t want that?
Homes are becoming more and more automated these days, and the kitchen and bathroom are not exempt from that trend. Smart appliances, especially those that can be controlled via an app, are going to be more popular than ever in 2022. Smart faucets, Alexa-controlled microwaves, and Wi-Fi enabled coffee machines will all become more commonplace in the kitchen, while touch-free toilets, interactive LED mirrors, and smart showers will be popular additions for the bathroom.
