Have you ever wondered if your kitchen or home is on trend with what’s popular? A trend is defined by Market Business News as being a general direction into which something is changing, developing, or veering toward. Thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, many of us have spent much more time in our homes. If you’re tired of staring at outdated cabinets and are wondering what’s popular in America’s kitchens these days, we’re here to walk you through some of the year’s top predicted design trends. 

Top Kitchen Trends

Many people choose to update their kitchens every few years to keep the value of their homes up. This doesn’t mean replacing your appliances and ripping out cabinets, but updating color schemes, knobs, and similar items is sometimes all it takes to keep your kitchen up to trend each year.

Neutral with a Pop of Color

According to Christopher Peacock, owner of the global luxury cabinet retailer, in an article for Martha Stewart, explains this year’s trending color scheme. “Whether it is custom cabinetry or designing a complete living space, neutral tones paired with strong colors, like deep greens, rich reds, and blues, will continue to be a go-to color scheme for most.” Consider finishing the perimeter cabinets in a neutral color, and finishing just the island in the statement color if refinishing all of your kitchen cabinets to a bold color feels overwhelming. This allows for the space to have visual interest without being too colorful.

Graphic Tiles

Adding geometric or intricate backsplash is a great way to bring visual interest to your kitchen. The visual texture created by tile patterns can be a great alternative to adding a pop of color if you’re looking for visual variation but want to stick to a neutral color scheme.

Longer Kitchen Islands

In the last few years, many employees have transitioned from working in the office to working from home. According Houzz, homeowners are using their island for work now more than ever. It writes, “…one in five homeowners say that a top activity at their island is work (20%), up four percentage points from 2021.” Rather than undertaking the large project of a home office add-on, try adding a larger island to accommodate all of your workspace needs.

New Countertops

Can you guess what the most common update homeowners complete in a kitchen? Countertops! Homeowners are predicted to spend more on countertops this year than ever before. According to the same article by Houzz, “…countertops were upgraded by more than nine in 10 homeowners (91%).” Quartz and granite are at the top of the splurge-worthy materials. Between the two, color and appearance options are numerous.

Refinishing Kitchen Cabinets 

The kitchen of your dreams begins with the kitchen you already have. If your dream is to have sleek cabinets and be more on par with what people are loving in 2022, all you might need to do is simply refinish your kitchen cabinets. 

With our non-intrusive kitchen cabinet refinishing method, we only spend three to four days in your home, and the rest of the process is done in our shop. This means you can return to normal life and enjoy your beautiful kitchen in just a short time! The total refinishing process takes three to five business days.

ON-SITE: During this beginning stage, we start in your kitchen coating the cabinet frames. We start by taking the existing cabinet doors and drawers off the frames and taping off the entire kitchen. After we tape off the kitchen, we then wash, hand-sand, prime, repair cracks and blemishes, caulk, and spray the finish on all exterior surfaces of the cabinet frames. 

OFF-SITE: Next, we will take the doors and drawer fronts to our shop to go through the same process. All the pieces will receive multiple coats of our commercial-grade coatings applied in our contaminant-free spray booth. Once finished, we return to your home to reinstall these pieces and update any knobs or handles you’d like replaced as well. 

If that doesn’t get your kitchen cabinets as sleek as you want them, we also offer completely new cabinet doors and drawer fronts for our clients who want to change styles or eliminate grain completely. This option combines the advantages of refinishing with the benefits of refacing, but at a much cheaper cost.
