Top Kitchen Colour Trends 2022

Get it here first! We’re excited to share with you the top kitchen colours as chosen by our real clients for their kitchen cabinetry projects in 2022.

This year there was a clear winner when it came to colour trends for your kitchen renovation. White, white and white! Earlier in the year we listed ‘White Kitchens’ as one of the big trends to unfold in 2022 in our free Kitchen Trends ebook; we had no idea just how popular it was going to be with all our clients.

White kitchens are timeless which makes sense that it was our biggest kitchen trend this year. In this blog we’ve listed for you the top five Polytec cabinetry colours and the top five Caesarstone quartz colours as selected by our real clients.

To help you with your inspiration for designing your white kitchen we also have another helpful article that has design ideas to inspire all elements of your white kitchen design. Click here to read this article.

Without further ado – let’s take a look at exactly what shades of white were popular in kitchen design in 2022.



Cabinetry Colours

Polytec Classic White Matt was by far the most popular cabinetry white across all of our kitchens we manufactured in 2022. Reason being – it’s an easy go-to, it pairs with most colours and it’s not a stark white.

An outlier only in this list – Polytec Boston Oak Woodmatt was second most popular. Oak laminates were also extremely popular in 2022 and just missed making into the top 5. We predict Boston Oak to be the new Prime Oak – since being released in the last year it’s gained momentum for its universal base that pairs well with all the cabinetry and quartz colours listed here.

Polytec Classic White Ashgrain was third on the list and reminds us of a luxury painted kitchen with its subtle sheen and crown cut woodgrain surface embossing.

Polytec Polar White Matt was next and is the whitest white you can select when designing a white kitchen. Polytec Blossom White Matt also made the top five with its fine textured surface and slightly greyed warm white tone.

To get the best feel for the colours we have listed above we recommend you visit our Perth showroom where you can view real Polytec laminate samples.Our interior designers are on hand to answer your kitchen design questions and will help make recommendations on creating cabinetry colour schemes that suit your individual taste.
