what will be the colours of 2022?



calming blue and shades of butter!


Next year’s palate will be "driven by a desire to be uplifted and energised while staying grounded and balanced” according to Jenny Clark, head of colour at trend forecasters WGSN.

She's tipping a ‘calming blue’ and ‘creamy shade of butter’ to be among the most sought after tints.

BIBO choice: Cool blue or cultured cream.




silver and black


Respected futurists predict more sombre, neutral tones will be very trendy in home renovations next year.  

'An important point to take into consideration that’s been developing and will continue to do so throughout 2022 is minimalism,' they say. 'Understanding that less is more. At this time, due to a context of modernity, the colours that set the tone are focused on sobriety.' They pick metals like silver to be in vogue and say black tones will look ‘sensational’.

pure white


When it comes to kitchens, next year is all about calm, safe tones to bring order amid the hustle and bustle of everyday life. That’s the conclusion of the stylists at New Décor Trends. 'Naturalness has become the main fashion of the kitchen interior,' they reason. 'White is the main colour of fashionable minimalism. 'Despite the fact that it was dark shades that prevailed over the fashion of 2022, it's unlikely that white will go out of fashion because it’s a classic of the genre'.

BIBO choice: Perfectly White




2022 kitchen design trends


Aside from colour, other kitchen fashions to look out for in the coming 12 months include:


eco style

More people want to show they're taking climate change seriously by using more recycled materials, efficient appliances and electricity from sustainable sources. A BIBO water bar uses less electricity than a kettle and only dispenses the exact amount if water you need.



A combination of two or more styles not only shows imagination and creativity, it means you’re not confined by convention when it comes to textures, patterns and styles. Overly uniform spaces are well and truly out.


pop art

If the food preparation area is muted, then why not add some colour with vibrant paintings, neon colours, glitter prints and flamboyant light shades? It’s inexpensive and can make a humdrum kitchen exude confidence and personality. A BIBO water bar in Red Hot or Active Orange will become an instant focal point.
