Here’s what we’re seeing for 2022:
We’re working hard over here designing our flagship kitchen and bath showroom in John’s Creek! It’s been tons of planning, research, and inspiring travel over the past six months, but the grand opening is finally approaching.
We’ve compiled the top 5 cabinetry design trends we’ve seen in all our research and travel to inspire you – come visit us to see all these fresh ideas come to life in our new space!
Decorative Mesh Cabinet Fronts.
This is one of our favorite trends that is showing up everywhere for 2022. Mesh cabinet fronts can offer a layer of texture and added personality that solid doors just can’t match. Mixing metal mesh with wood or painted door frames adds just enough of a peek into the cabinet interiors without having to worry about keeping everything picture-perfect inside, like you would with clear glass. There are a multitude of mesh options, from almost opaque to wider grates that highlight your favorite kitchen tableware and glassware. Add some interior cabinet lighting and you’ll create just the right touch of glamour to your space! We think this look is also incredibly chic for your at-home bar – mix brass mesh fronts with dark or black cabinets to give it that rich, speakeasy feel.
Practicality points – mesh doors also offer better ventilation. We’re using it in the laundry room display in our new showroom to create a unique drying pantry. Come visit us to check it out! Learn more
Space-saving and sleek, the Euro/Contemporary cabinetry look has made its way to the US in a big way. We’re seeing this style being used in all kinds of spaces – you can create a super high-tech kitchen with hidden appliances and a huge island, or go retro by mixing wood and solid-color wall cabinets to hit on the mid-century modern trend.
We love the idea of handle-less cabinetry and clean lines – push-to-open doors and 3-level cabinets are right up our alley. We’ve designed a beautiful contemporary kitchen for our showroom with on-trend matte grey floor-to-ceiling cabinets mixed with a light wood-look backsplash to soften the lines. Euro-look kitchens are a perfect canvas for all the newest tech-y gadgets – we can’t wait to see what our vendor partners come up with next!
Walnut Cabinetry and Natural Wood Elements.
It’s no secret that sustainability is top of mind for consumers these days – and bringing earth tones and natural elements into the kitchen has become an important trend we see continuing for a while.
Beautiful dark walnut cabinets mixed with white and creates an elevated look, and adding touches of shiny stainless hardware can add luxury to any kitchen. For a more relaxed look, the combination of natural oak and on-trend green cabinetry can bring a feeling of earthiness and coziness to your space.
We love both of these trends so much that we’ve dedicated two brand-new displays in our Johns Creek showroom to highlight them! Our fully-customized walnut and white kitchen display with a huge island will wow you when you enter our flagship space; we added details to really up the ante on this one, with stainless framed drawers and top-of-the-line accessories. Our second display features beautiful natural green inset cabinetry and a gorgeous oak island with all the features and benefits that your kitchen is just aching to have. The modern farmhouse vibes are strong on this one, and this trend isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
If you have the space in your kitchen, double islands are the way to go. This option offers a lot more flexibility in work space, not to mention all the storage options that islands bring to the table. Matching islands with contrasted wall cabinetry is a striking and popular look. This combo can vary from traditional to contemporary – we love the idea of glossy white islands with sleek, dark Euro cabinetry.
Use one island for dinner party prep and have your guests enjoy appetizers at the other, or arrange one island as a breakfast area for the family and leave the other to house your microwave drawer and apron sink. Or, our personal favorite, mix up the island surfaces and use one island as a gourmet butcher block prep station! Learn more
Mudrooms and Utility Rooms.
Gorgeous cabinetry is being highlighted in more rooms than just the kitchen. Custom utility rooms are showing up everywhere, and add an element of luxury to your home. Having that extra room to hide all the goodies that you can’t live without but don’t need your guests to see is pretty useful – you can keep all your beautiful vintage glassware on display in the kitchen and hide the pub pint glasses from college behind closed doors. An extra sink for behind-the-scenes food prep work never hurt either.
Anyone with a family knows how valuable a mudroom can be in your home. Personalized cubbies and storage cabinets can keep backpacks, shoes, jackets, and all that other stuff that comes home from school or work organized and out of sight. Adding a custom designed mudroom, big or small, to your home is an investment you will not regret.
White cabinetry – they’re still going strong! This trend is hanging around and doesn’t seem to be backing down. Classic, clean, and a perfect canvas for you to personalize the space with your cookbooks, colorful appliances, and greenery.
Floating shelves – we’re seeing these more often now as single shelves, to give a natural place to end a slab backsplash or to break-up a blank wall space.
Full-sized pantries – As floating shelves continue to be a strong trend, we’re seeing big pantries make a comeback to house all the items that used to live in wall cabinets. We love all the cool accessories that can be found in the newer pantry designs, an organizers dream!
Pet-centric nooks – With pet adoptions skyrocketing over the past year or two during the pandemic, families are catering to their furry friends by creating custom cabinet nooks for food, water, and toys. We love our pups and we really love this trend!
