Projections show that the global kitchen cabinet market will reach a value of $160 billion in 2025.

When taking into account cabinets, an oven, a sink, paint, and the various other elements that make up a new kitchen, the cost can be very high. If you're spending that much, you want to make sure it's worth it. Things like RTA cabinets can help you build your dream kitchen - but what exactly is your dream kitchen?

For some of the biggest kitchen design trends of 2022, keep reading.

Custom Organization

When you go through a kitchen remodel you have the freedom to do whatever you want (within reason). You've got a huge amount of control, not just over the design, but also the layout.

Designers these days have a strong focus on both form and function, which has led to more kitchens with incredibly useful storage space. The organization is key in the kitchen, so going for a design that keeps things in order is a great idea.

Corner cupboards with slide-out shelves are a typical example of this. Making the best use of the space you have not only means you can store more in your kitchen but it's much easier to keep things organized.

Unique RTA Cabinets

Everyone likes their home to stand out (in a good way), and the kitchen is one of the best places to do that. Different cabinet profiles come in and out of style, but nothing makes more of a statement than going for something unique.

Designers are capable of coming up with all sorts of designs for kitchen cabinets, so when choosing yours you might want to go for something a bit more unusual. The most important thing is that you like the design - after all, you and your family are going to be the ones that spend the most time there.

RTA cabinets make for easy installation, and you'll never be short of design choices. Don't be afraid to take risks when it comes to kitchen cabinet ideas. If something functions well and you like the look of it then it may be the best choice.

Strong Colors

White kitchens have always been popular - and they probably always will be. It's a safe choice, but it's not the most interesting. Like with the cabinets mentioned above, going with something more unique can be a risk, but if you choose the right colors for your kitchen it can become a work of art.

Mixing dramatic stone with bold contrasting colors can help different elements of your kitchen really stand out. Oxblood red and deep navy are both popular upcoming colors, but it's safe to say that people will be exploring a whole range of color combinations over the next year.

Wood Finishes

One of the most popular design trends right now is natural materials. This applies to the kitchen as well as other areas of the home. Wood brings a natural warmth to any space, and there are plenty of different options available.

Wood can be used for several different elements in your kitchen. This could be exposed beams, wooden countertops, cladding on the wall, a reclaimed table in place of an island, and more.

Light wood colors have been more popular in recent years, but it seems as though we're now moving towards darker, richer tones. It's also a very popular choice to use a combination of different types, e.g. lighter woods for most of the cabinetry with darker accenting to add some depth to the kitchen.

Upgraded Details

There are some aspects of a kitchen where it's typical to think of certain individual items and how they function, but you can often come up with a better design by working everything together.

You might pick a certain oven or sink because you like the look and it has features that meet your needs, but how well does it go with the rest of the kitchen? You may be able to get an oven that is accented with the same material as the countertop, for example.

Things like this will help make your kitchen look like a single piece of work and give a more bespoke, thoughtful appearance to it.

Bold Slabs

As mentioned above, wood is a great choice for countertops. Despite that, it may not be everyone's preferred choice. Natural stone makes for great countertops in terms of both appearance and functionality.

When carrying out your kitchen renovations you should consider different options such as quartz, granite, or marble. All of these come in a variety of colors and styles, so there's something to suit everyone.

Countertops are always a focal point, so choosing a design that contrasts with the other colors in your kitchen can really make it stand out. You can even add the design to your backsplashes if you think it works well.

Imperfect Finishes

A clean, brand new-looking kitchen has always been what people have strived for, but that's not so much the case anymore. Many people are starting to prefer more of a worn, lived-in look. This is one of the more unusual kitchen trends of 2022, but it's becoming very popular.

Earthy paint colors and off-colored tiles are becoming a sought-after addition to many kitchens. This seems to be coming from a desire for things to look more natural, which is also part of the reason for the growing popularity of the use of wood in kitchens.

Natural textures are also becoming a more common choice. Things like stone, ceramic, and brick can all be used for various kitchen elements, and you can expect to see them a lot more throughout 2022.
