What’s Trending in Kitchens for 2022?


The kitchen is the heart of the house where everyone congregated during the pandemic, and it’s still the go-to room for multiple functions—that means it keeps changing.

  • White still reigns but color shows up in cabinetry, appliances, and countertops.
  • Lighting is now in layers rather than a trio of pendants above an island.
  • Steam ovens are the hottest new appliance.

The kitchen became an even more significant heart of the home during the pandemic as the focal point for gathering, working, entertaining, and, of course, cooking, says Joe Fava, CEO of Fava Design Group in Miami.
