Kitchen Cabinet Trends 2022

Natural wood cabinets are far and away going to be the most popular kitchen cabinet color trends 2022 according to 72% of industry experts. This popularity makes sense in conjunction with many other popular trends this coming year. Natural materials and nature-inspired trends have been on the rise for the last few years and show no signs of slowing down in 2022.

There are many different ways to include natural wood cabinetry in your home as well, with costs that can fit every budget from RM300 to RM2000 a square linear foot.

Wood comes in an incredible range of different species, as well as colors, grain patterns, and tones. Best of all, wood tones work well with many other colors and materials, which can allow you to mix your cabinets with other popular trends. As Gloribell Lebron, CEO of G. Lebron Interiors, explains that, “Neutral, wood color and even green can all be mixed with a variety of countertop materials and colors. Because wood tones warm up a space, light or white countertops (with some veining) will create a perfect balance in the space.”

For styling your wood cabinets, Anastasios Gliati, CEO of Anastasios Interiors, points out that, “Whites provide a great contrast and complement beautiful natural wood tone finishes, making them stand out and providing a fresh outdoor vibe.” Consider white backsplash tiles or a white wall to help get this look.

Horton Interior Design, has also embraced the trend recalling, “I’ve been working on a project where we used olive green cabinets and included several touches of aged copper in the hood, the accents, and the hardware.” Since green can be so versatile, you’ll have no trouble finding other accent colors that can easily match.

4. Two Toned Kitchen Cabinets

There are also a lot of different ways you can use it. Mix a green or blue island with natural wood cabinets on the perimeter. Or opt for different tones on your upper and lower cabinets. By mixing shades you help prevent any one color or tone from dating the entire kitchen at once, which can make your style stay fresher looking longer. It can also help marry different elements throughout the home, as Patti Johnson, owner of Patti Johnson Interiors, explains that “Choosing an island in a contrasting finish […] can serve to marry finishes from neighboring rooms and create a cohesive design vs entering an all-white kitchen.” There are many different colors and combinations that can work well for creating the two-toned cabinetry look. Marcia Moore, owner and creative director of Marcia Moore Design, likes the look of, “Wood tone lower cabinets with painted upper cabinets and accents of glass upper cabinets with black metal trim.” Dahlia Mahmood, president of Dahlia Design, has also seen a lot of popularity in this trend, particular, explaining, “Our clients are requesting the two-toned kitchen trend […] making the island a true statement piece. From dramatic lighting to color and material choices, kitchens can be elegantly elevated with this fresh design trend.”
5 White Kitchen Cabinets
Kitchen Cabinet Trends 2022 | Image by Kandrac& Kole Interior White cabinets have been popular for the last several years, and while only 38% of experts still think they’ll hold onto their popularity in the coming year, this is still a relevant trend. White cabinets work with anything, and it’s easy to change things like wall and accent color to liven up a design when your cabinets are white. White also mixes well with many of the other popular trends, such as natural wood. Laura Muller, the owner of Four Point Design Build, loves the look of, “Creamy white surrounding cabinets with a natural wood island” and Suzanne Lasky, owner of S Interior Design, agrees and prefers, “White and wood toned cabinets with Quartzite natural countertops in a light tone with warm veining running through it.” The key to keeping white on-trend seems to be making sure that you prevent an all-white kitchen, and include some other shades as well.
