The latest kitchen design and remodeling trends are all about customizing your space with unique accents in your favored range of colors, textures, patterns, materials, and fixtures.

Here are some trends for 2022 & 2023 that we would like to share with viewers and potential customers.

Rolling Kitchen Island

The demand for large kitchen islands is going away. Instead of massive in size, savvy homeowners prefer now smaller islands on wheels. A custom island on wheels is easy to relocate for different uses and adds more open space to the kitchen.

Kitchen Color Schemes

Warmer colors and soothing wood tones will dress up kitchens in 2022 and 2023. The butcher block island, Classic Shaker, flat painted, or wood cabinetry is always timeless. They sometimes go for a while but always come back. Consider a Pastel Color Accent Wall to add some personality.


A pastel accent wall is a good addition for those who like colors in their kitchens. Soft yellow, pink, green, blue, or red would complement natural wood tones and neutral color palettes beautifully and add some spice to a beautiful design. 

White, Gray, and Blue Kitchens Continue to be Popular

Shades of White, Grey, and Blue kitchens are an ongoing trend that will continue. However, some other colors as black, yellow, red, or green, are used for accenting parts of cabinetry, such as islands for example, or part of walls.

Natural Woods 

In the last few years, wood and plywood features have been showing in stylish, urban kitchens, as they were in the past. Now this trend has evolved into wood cabinetry in pale, soft colors and shades. Wood looks beautiful when combined with polished metal appliances and fixtures.

Open Shelving 

Upper cabinets can be easily converted into open shelving, and this trend is growing in popularity, for decorative and functional purposes, especially in modern farmhouse-style kitchens. Open shelves keep a collection of nice decors or dish-ware displayed.

Flat Cabinet Doors With Handles

No more busy details such as recessed panels, trim work, or large cabinet pulls. Classic Shaker or Classic Flat Style doors and drawer fronts with small knobs are gaining in popularity. Doors and accessories like these give an old cooking space a clean, modern look and are easy to maintain.

Classic Shaker Cabinetry

It looks like Shaker style cabinets are timeless, they were, they are and they will always be trendy. Right now they are a big favorite among homeowners. They give cabinets a fresh twist if you go with a two-tone paint job.

Centerpieces in Kitchens are Vent Hoods

The range hood is not for venting only anymore. It became a centerpiece of the kitchen and homeowner's statement

of style and taste.

Metal in the Kitchen

Copper or brass pieces with a worn oxidized finish give cooking spaces a cozy, lived-in look. The patina on the range hood or other metal pieces evokes warmth and comfort and is also on trend. From stainless steel to polished chrome, brass, or gold, various metals can be used in the kitchen to add this unique flavor.

Farm Style Stone or Metal Sink

You can add an old-world style to your kitchen with a farmhouse-inspired sink carved from stone or metal. Natural material repels germs and is both heat and stain resistant, and they can develop a unique patina with age, adding beautiful character to your kitchen.

Concrete Kitchen Features

Concrete features in the kitchen are getting popular particularly in modern style kitchens . The countertops in made from polished concrete with a satin, semi-gloss or gloss finish should be protected with a water-resistant sealer to prevent stains and scratches.


Banquette Seating Gets a Refresh

Banquette seating once popular during the 1980s have big time again with some fresh details to bring modern, style. Cast concrete table, a custom leather bench, and a few side chairs will make the kitchen ready for a cup of coffee or tea, or a glass of wine with a nice view of you landscaping through a window.

Final Statement With Floor Tiles

Wood flooring in the kitchen is a for perfect show of personality and durability but you cannot go wrong with patterned floor tile. Statement-making tile floors will never require refinishing. For maximum impact, and they can pair with a backsplash.

Matte Black Faucets

When it comes to metal fixtures in kitchens, anything goes, but matte black faucets are showing more lately. The single-handle pull-down sprayer faucet with the drop-in granite sink would be a very nice accent to any kitchen.
