Top Kitchen Colours for 2022

A new year comes with the opportunity for a fresh start. What better way to mark this new beginning than to give your kitchen a fresh coat of paint to spruce it up? Perhaps a complete renovation is in order?

When it comes to designing your dream kitchen, choosing the right colour scheme is so important. While we always advise you to go with your gut feeling, looking at current trends is a great place to start when looking for inspiration. 


From a crisp white to the warmer tones, white remains a fan favourite in 2022. And it’s the variety of shades that make this colour so popular. Cooler tones give a space a fresh look, whilst warmer shades bring a light, airy feel. 

Mixing two or three tones of white is a great way to keep your kitchen’s colour scheme neutral while simultaneously creating a more dynamic look. 


This hue has been popular for quite some time, especially the darker shades such as indigo, navy and jewel blue. Now, don’t expect this colour to be any less popular in 2022. Instead, it’s likely that a greater variety of blue shades, especially those on the lighter side of the colour spectrum, will be incorporated into kitchen designs.  

You can easily add a hint of blue to your cooking space with wall paint and cabinets – you’ll even come across blue kitchen accessories in 2022. It’s also an excellent hue to use if you’re looking to highlight metallic fitting in the kitchen. 


From wall paint to flooring and backsplashes, grey is a clean yet sleek hue to incorporate into your kitchens colour scheme. 

Being a balance of black and white, it’s an excellent choice if you’re looking to add some depth to a neutral kitchen. There are also so many varying tones of grey that you’ll easily find the perfect shade to compliment your kitchen.

Additionally, it won’t make your cooking space appear smaller, as is often the case with black. 


From muted shades of green to emerald and jade, green is the top colour of choice for 2022. When you consider all the varying colours of green out there, it’s easy to see why it’s such a popular hue. 

Lighter green hues tend to work well with a neutral colour scheme yet still add a pop of colour. The muted tones also tend to be more delicate, which can create a light, airy feel in your kitchen. 

However, if you’re looking to have a showstopper statement piece, using a bolder, brighter tone like emerald or jade is the way to go. 


A black and white colour scheme is simple yet timeless. So, if you’re looking to give your cooking space an elegant feel, this is the colour trend to go for. 

Do keep in mind that going overboard with a monochrome colour palette can be too much for a kitchen. This is especially true in smaller kitchens, where the black is likely to make the space feel even more compact than it may already be. Instead, consider using monochrome in a statement piece, such as with the cabinetry or kitchen accessories. 


This clay coloured hue is perfect if you’re looking to add some warmth to your kitchen space. Its earthy richness also compliments wooden cabinets and countertops. You could also use peach as a focal point by painting a single wall in this happy hue. 

We hope that these kitchen colour trends have given you the inspiration you need to give your cooking space a fabulous new look.
