Top 5 Kitchen Design Trends of 2022

Newly remodeled kitchen

The real estate adage “kitchens sell houses” is true! And even if you’re not looking to sell any time soon, the enjoyment you get from your new kitchen makes the investment worthwhile.

Stainless steel appliances and white kitchen cabinets are still the go-to choices for many homeowners. But there has also been a move away from open-concept kitchens, reflecting a shift in how people want to use their cooking space.

Whether you’re remodeling your kitchen to make it more suitable for your lifestyle or increasing your home’s value before a sale, these are the kitchen design trends that will have staying power:

 1. Splurge-Worthy Countertops

Upgraded kitchen counters are now the most popular feature in kitchen remodels. Homeowners are pairing dark green marble versions with mid-tone green cabinets and seamless white marble backsplashes.

2. Longer Kitchen Islands

As more people choose to work from home, they’re investing in kitchen islands that give them more room to bake, cook, and work. Nearly 2 out of 5 kitchen remodels now include an island that’s more than 7 feet long!

3. Specialty Organizing Cabinets

Along with drawer organizers, this trend has steadily grown in popularity. People want a well-organized kitchen that helps them prepare meals more quickly and makes the process more fun.

Cabinets designed to hold cookie trays and racks are a top choice, as are pull-out waste/recycling bins.

4. Smart Appliances

Many homeowners are now ready to splurge on big-ticket appliances with high-tech features. They love the added convenience of controlling appliances with digital devices without getting up from the sofa or coming in from the backyard, and you will too!

Options include on-trend colors and custom paneling that let you seamlessly integrate the appliance into your cabinetry.

5. Bold Colors

Neutrals remain as popular as ever but expect to see more incorporation of bright colors. If you’d love to go bold in your kitchen remodel, consider jewel tones, aqua blue, lime green, vivid yellow, or Very Peri, Pantone’s color of the year for 2022.

Used generously or as a playful pop of color, a vibrant color in the kitchen can boost your mood and inspire your culinary efforts!
