When it comes to kitchen remodeling, what’s popular today may not be popular in five years. If you’re thinking about remodeling your kitchen in 2022, here are some of the top trends to watch out for.

Kitchen Cabinet Color

For the year 2022, warm and earthy tones such as warmer white or taupe for kitchen cabinets will be in vogue.  Light oak cabinets with white quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances will be one of the most stylish kitchen cabinet color combinations for 2022.

Gray and beige colored cabinets will  be one of the top kitchen cabinet color trends for 2022.  Another popular option will be white cabinets paired with dark gray countertops and backsplash.

Kitchen Countertops

In the coming years, natural materials such as soapstone and marble will continue to remain popular for kitchen counters. And more people are considering recycled glass as a viable option for their kitchens. Quartz will also be a famous  material because of its affordability and easy to clean qualities.

Kitchen Appliances

The trend for 2022 will be induction stovetops, glass backsplashes, sleek stainless steel appliances, and high-tech cooktops with two ovens. The also popular kitchen hoods range will continue to be used in modern homes where ventilation is required.

With the advancement in technology, you will be seeing a lot of transitioning to smart appliances. Moreover, panel -ready appliances are set to continue their run. 

Open Shelving

Keeping in theme of warm and wooden tones,  open shelving will be a big trend in 2022. With the rise of exposed brick and other earthy building materials, open shelving will continue to make summer kitchens look more modern and stylish. The introduction of LED lighting via exposed beams and exposed shelves will also help create a warm atmosphere.

These are already trending but this year, they’ll begin to become more common in smaller kitchens as well, where homeowners might typically shy away from them due to lack of storage

L-Shaped Kitchens

Another very popular kitchen design trend  is the L-shaped kitchen layout. This has been a big trend for over ten years and won’t be going anywhere anytime soon! The layout of the most popular, modern kitchens features an L-shaped design with ample space for working and storage.

Round cabinets or  arch shaped cabinets will be very popular in 2022. These shapes give the appearance of more space and the round shape leaves a lot of room for accent pieces.

Backsplash That Goes Till Ceiling

Using backsplash tiles all the way till the ceiling  will regain popularity this year.  Many homeowners are opting to install this feature in their kitchen area, especially if they have extra space.

Backsplashes that go all the way upto the ceiling create the effect of a well-lit and spacious kitchen especially if the tiles are reflective.


Wood is expected to be the favorite material of choice for kitchen renovation in 2022.  Wood cabinets are attractive, durable and environmentally friendly.

Kitchens with natural wood cabinets will appear in many homes this year. If you don’t want to install solid wood counters then think about replacing your countertops with ones made out of tile or quartz. 

From wooden cabinets, to shelves, and countertops,  there’s a style and design for everyone. This year people will be playing close attention to their kitchen cabinets as well as the doors on those cabinets.
