It’s time to start looking forward to the new year and the year’s upcoming style trends. One room in the home that deserves every homeowner’s attention is the kitchen. In 2021, the kitchen took on a whole new role as people settled into new routines of working from home. Simultaneously, old trends such as open shelving started to wane in popularity.
In this guide, homeowners will discover the top kitchen style trends to follow in 2022, with a few key collections and finish recommendations to meet any home design.
A Smart, Sleek Home
Advancements in technology are being brought directly into the kitchen. Today, a fridge can be more than simply a place to keep food cold, and an oven no longer requires a manual preheat process. Many appliances in the kitchen now come equipped with built-in TVs, the ability to be controlled via smartphones, and built-in voice-activated devices.
For those looking to add smart home features to their kitchen, the following is the perfect list of accompanying pieces:
- Gourmetier Concord Single-Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet in Brushed Nickel: To pair with the modern design of smart appliances, this faucet features bold and sleek lines. With cylindrical styling, this faucet is a functional piece with the implementation of modern-day technology to create a cutting-edge product. Opt for brushed nickel to pair with similarly finished appliances.
- Gourmetier Solid Surface White Stone Apron Front Farmhouse Single Bowl Kitchen Sink in Matte White: Sophistication meets quality construction with this farmhouse-style sink. In matte white with bold, strong lines, this apron front sink is the perfect pair for smart home appliances. The thick materials add to the design of the room, while the modern take on an age-old design makes the perfect accompaniment for a smart home.

With its sleek, stylish design featuring modern lines, this pot filler is the perfect complement to an upgraded smart stove. Choose a polished chrome finish to complete the modern appeal of the kitchen.
Industrial Style Designs
Another design trend that looks to increase in popularity in 2022 is the industrial style. Industrial style designs focus on raw materials, open floor plans, and a unique blend of metals and woods.
The kitchen is the perfect place to give this style a go, particularly in kitchens with lofted ceilings, exposed brick walls, or spaces featuring rustic appliance styles. The following are ideal picks for adding a flair of industrial style to any kitchen:
- Kingston Brass Belknap Industrial Style Bridge Kitchen Faucet with Brass Sprayer in Matte Black: With a bold and edgy design, this bridge faucet features an industrial focus with a modern interpretation. The matte black pops against the architectural elements of an industrial kitchen, and the brass construction offers long-term durability.

This drop-in stainless steel farmhouse sink features bold double bowls, high-quality rust-resistant stainless steel, and a brushed finish. With its simple elemental design, it contrasts perfectly against an exposed brick wall or alongside a wooden butcher block countertop.
- Exposed Kingston Brass Round Bottle Trap in Matte Black: Industrial design is all about exposed piping, making this brass round bottle trap in matte black the ideal pick for an updated kitchen design. Sans frills, this piece is a nod to the industrial stylings of original kitchen piping.
Blues and Greens
Every year, paint makers around the globe predict what the next year’s trending colors will be. This year, a variety of blue and green hues made the top of these lists. Sherwin Williams showcased their Evergreen Fog, a calming green-gray hue with undertones of blue. Simultaneously, Benjamin Moore released their color choice — October Mist, a silver-green color inspired by the stem of a flower.
To pair well with these earthy colors, the following pieces are the perfect match:
- Kingston Brass Restoration Wall Mount Pot Filler Kitchen Faucet in Polished Brass: For homeowners who opt to use green or blue above the kitchen stove, this polished brass pot filler is the perfect pick.

This elegant piece is the perfect centerpiece for any kitchen, and with its horizontal pop, this wall mount kitchen faucet is the ideal pairing for an earthy green or blue wall.
A Metallic Warmth
As the trends of 2022 unfold, one popular choice for adding warmth into the home is through the use of metallic fixtures. Brasses, coppers, and antique metal finishes are all being used to add warmth and comfort to the home.
To add a touch of metallic warmth to the kitchen, the following are the perfect pick:

Connecting to nature is an increasingly popular choice given how many people now spend a large amount of time in the home. Biophilic design is a trend that brings elements of the natural environment into the home. This is done through the use of everything from plant walls to increased natural lighting.
For an easy way to bring the outdoors into the kitchen, consider some of the following fixtures:

Minimalism for Fixtures
In 2022, a shift to minimalistic fixtures looks to be a popular choice. These fixtures feature sleek, simple lines and pair well with a variety of home designs. At the center of this style is a desire to keep the kitchen uncluttered and free of excess opulence in design.
