What’s pushing the custom cabinet trends in 2022? Perhaps, after two years of “Work & School from Home,” everyone is looking for a change of pace—a pop of color in the kitchen, home office, or family room.

And our home kitchen has been used more in the past few years than in recent history. Homeowners now know what they want and what works for their new lifestyle.

It is a fun and unique time to be a local custom cabinet designer, remodeler, and integrator.


A Look at This Year’s Custom Cabinet Trends

Many homeowners are looking for a pop of color in their homes. That pop may come from newly painted walls, a family gallery wall, or updated furniture. It’s also a trending idea to combine all three concepts to accent new kitchen cabinets.

For those that choose to upgrade their kitchen cabinetry, it is interesting to note that white or natural cabinets may be taking a backseat to colors such as charcoal, cool blues, and tranquil greens. If you plan to stay neutral for resale value, the pop of color can come from cabinet hardware.

If you have recently watched the cable design shows or browsed any interior design magazines, you may have noted that black hardware is the queen of 2022. Hardware is easy and not costly to swap out as trends change.

As homeowners spend more time in their kitchen, they strive to incorporate some family favorites into the design. Perhaps you would like an art gallery wall, pottery collected displayed on open shelves, or a nook for your vintage cookware collection. Designers now include display space for family favorites in their renovation or design plans.

Maybe the era of the all-white, minimal kitchen is over? We can say this new kitchen attitude has added a lot of spunk to our design work.


Cabinets Beyond the Kitchen

Cabinetry trends have also gone beyond the kitchen.

The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way we all work from home. Many set up a home office with an assemble-yourself desk or even a folding table two years ago. After spending countless hours in an at-home office, many created a wish list. Custom cabinetry became the cornerstone of the wish list.

Designers can create an office that fits your work style or profession. You can turn a hardly used closet or even a pantry into an at-home office with custom cabinetry. Or you can refresh an entire room with cabinetry and a built-in desk. If you also have a side gig, we can create a workflow to organize that too.

If you have made the family decision to shift to homeschool in 2022, we can create the perfect room. Cabinetry and built-in desks provide ample storage space, room for laptops and other technology, and a private learning environment. Designing an at-home learning space is a new trend, and we are ready to assist.

From Time4Learning, a national leader in homeschool advice:

Trying to stay organized in today’s hectic world may sound impossible, but trust me, when you homeschool multiple children, having a place for everything is a MUST.” 

Also, beyond the kitchen, designers are crafting plans for custom cabinetry in laundry rooms, living rooms, and home entertainment areas. There is no doubt that cabinetry in multiple areas of your home increases your property value.
