There’s a strong argument to be made that the kitchen is one of the most important rooms of the home. It often acts as the heart of the household. It’s where families gather together, make long-lasting memories, and break bread.
Because the kitchen is such a pivotal space within a home, it’s somewhere you want to be a joy to spend time in. It should be warm and inviting and evoke nothing but positive feelings. It should feel fresh and fun.
If you’re thinking of embarking on a kitchen remodel this year, you’ll want to know about the kitchen painting trends for 2022. There are some color combinations that will never go out of style, and others that are more of the moment.
No matter what you’re looking for, or what your personal style is, we’ve got you covered. Read on to learn about the best paint colors for your kitchen this year.
Before we dive into some of the amazing trending house paint of this year, let’s talk a little bit about what kind of kitchen you’ve got. Because while all of the below colors are beautiful, they won’t all work in every type of space.
If you’ve got a broody and industrial style kitchen, for example, something too bright or punchy probably won’t work. If your kitchen is teeny tiny, you’ll probably want light and bright colors, while a larger space will allow for more options. To choose the best paint for you, you’ll need to think about your specific space.
You should also be aware that there are many different ways to introduce color into a kitchen. Of course, you can paint the walls, but you can also paint the cabinets and add colorful tiles or worktops. This is important to keep in mind when it comes to your kitchen.
Neutrals in the kitchen will always work well. While white, cream, and grey would have been the classic shades to go for, over the past few years, a new kind of neutral has slowly been gaining popularity. We’re talking about shades of taupe, stone, and beige.
These colors look great in almost any style and size of kitchen, which is definitely part of their appeal. As neutrals, they also work well with any other color.
If you want to add in a little more color, you could even go for something a little pinker, like blush or coral. Neutrals are going to be huge in 2022, so hop on this interior house painting trend and make your kitchen a haven of peace and tranquility.
Blue is a perennial favorite when it comes to the kitchen. But this year, we’re taking this tried and tested classic and turning it up a notch. Instead of the usual eggshell or pastel blues that evoke visions of a Provence-style kitchen, the blues to watch this year are bolder and brighter.
Think cobalt blue or something like this bright blue from Sherwin Williams. This type of blue isn’t for the faint of heart, and it won’t be to everyone’s taste, however, if you’ve got a daring streak in you, it’s a great color to try.
The feelings you’ll imbue in your kitchen space will be ones of energy, happiness, and creativity. If you’re someone who loves to try out new recipes and spends every weekend in the kitchen crafting cocktails and cooking different dishes, then this could be a great option for you.
It may sound like a dramatic choice for a kitchen, but that’s exactly why we’re loving the color black this year. This is another color that can work with many different kitchen sizes—yes, even in ones that are small—and styles.
Black is such a versatile color and there are endless ways you can use it to create intrigue and mystery in your space. Black is a chic and sophisticated color choice that’s also timeless, meaning you’ll still be as on-trend in 10 years as you are today if you choose it for your kitchen. As an added bonus, black is also easy to clean and pairs well with just about any color you can imagine.
Black walls paired with colored cabinets can work really well. Even unexpected color combinations—like black and baby pink—can produce amazing results. However, if you’re looking for something really dramatic, then an all-black kitchen—cabinets; walls, tiles, the works—is really something to consider.
Finally, we have a color that we’re really excited about this year: orange. Again, this might seem like a little bit of a crazy color to put in your kitchen, but bear with us!
There are many different shades of orange, and while we love them all, we would recommend steering clear of something too bright. Instead, we recommend more muted and subtle types of orange.
Burnt orange with plenty of red tones almost approaching brown is a vibrant and beautiful shade for a kitchen. As is something softer, such as something more akin to peach or apricot. Orange evokes feelings of excitement and happiness, making it perfect for a family kitchen that you and your brood love spending time in.
Your kitchen should be your sanctuary, and a place you can’t spend enough time in. To ensure this is the case, you’ll want to make sure you choose not only the best house paint but also the best painter. When it comes to kitchen painting, the application matters just as much as the color itself.
