Last year Ikea already announced that 2021 was going to be the last in which we had its catalog in physical form. Already last year there were certain changes motivated in part by the pandemic. To reduce, in part, the environmental impact, the 2021 catalog was not distributed to millions of homes around the world, as had been tradition, although we were able to have it in physical stores.
The lack of a catalog is supplemented, in theory, with an extensive website and its app in which they show their news through images of complete environments so that being inspired by them is easier.

Color in the kitchen but with neutral colored furniture

Dashboards with finishes that simulate different materials
Another of the most prominent trends in the kitchen is to extend the countertop to the dashboard. To achieve this effect of unity and continuity at the best price, in Ikea they have numerous vinyl plates for kitchens that imitate the finish of the countertops with a wide range of finishes such as Carrara marble, polished concrete finish, steel and even golden, to achieve a very sophisticated kitchen with matching handles and taps.
Space to recycle in the kitchen
And finally, even small kitchens do not have to give up having a space to facilitate recycling. The gap under the window, or any corner is enough to make a design to make life at home more sustainable.
