Beautiful Kitchen Design Ideas & Inspirations For 2022

by Harri Summers 03 Aug 2022

Over time, there have been many changes to kitchens. With today's kitchen designs, the kitchen is no longer relegated to the back of the house. Creating a more open-faced kitchen that is a component of a dining area, a family room, or a great room is a challenge for kitchen design. Will your kitchen feature an island? Are those things you need to consider when choosing how to design your kitchen? Will it have a traditional or modern design? What kind of appliances are going to be required for your new kitchen layout? What style of lighting do you have?

  1. Kitchen as a ‘great’ room

There are various design factors to bear in mind when creating a new kitchen or renovating an existing one, such as incorporating an island or peninsula into the layout. These can be utilised to create a "great room" by joining the kitchen to an adjacent dining space or family room. The cook will be able to maintain visual and verbal contact with family members or visitors in the adjacent family or dining room thanks to a kitchen island or peninsula.

  1. Make a kitchen canopy

Create a kitchen canopy to give the room some visual boundaries without obstructing views. Additionally, a high ceiling in the kitchen can give the impression of space.

  1. Setting the tone of the kitchen design using the colour of the cabinets

The style of the kitchen cabinets will influence the entire space. Your cabinets' overall appearance will depend on the wood you choose. Use light wood, such as ash, beech, birch, oak, maple, or chestnut, to achieve a light appearance. Cherry is the medium-range option. Make your choice of wood with some colour if your kitchen is darker.

  1. Determine How Cabinets and Drawers Will Be Used in the New Kitchen Design

Before you begin designing your new kitchen, specify on the layout how your cabinets and drawers will be used and how much room and storage you'll need. The counter surface area should be looked at first. Consider where each item is located in your current kitchen and where it will be located in the new kitchen design. Will there be multiple people cooking at once? If so, will there be space in the kitchen for two cooks to collaborate?

  1. Make Use Of A Galley Kitchen Design

Regarding counter configurations, many kitchen designers concur that a galley-style design is the most practical due to its single aisle and counter tops on either side, which make it simple to turn around and go from the sink to the cooking range.

  1. Kitchen Under-Cabinet Lighting
7 Kitchen Design Ideas

One aspect of kitchen design that is often neglected is kitchen lighting. The counter spaces may be a little dark even though the kitchen has generally sufficient lighting. Under-cabinet lighting can assist in supplying extra light to operate in these spaces. Simple spots or fluorescent lighting can be used to amplify the appearance of a tiny kitchen.

  1. Observing Counter tops

Popular natural materials with a variety of colours for counter tops include granite, marble, and limestone. Kitchen counter tops made of ceramic tile are adaptable, useful, and come in a variety of colours, shapes, patterns, and finishes. Acrylic faces are provided with seamless solid surface counter tops. In addition to being heat and stain resistant, solid surfaces also come in an almost infinite variety of colours, patterns, and styles. Although more cheap, laminate counter tops are not long-lasting. Concrete counter tops are renowned for their strength as well as their adaptability. Wood counter tops last a long time and are simple to maintain and repair, but the wood won't hold up to exposure to water and common home cleaners. Granite or tile counters are more elegant than stainless steel ones. These counter tops tend to scratch easily but do not retain stains.
