Interested in a different color for your cabinets? Nature is taking center stage when it comes to upcoming trends for cabinet painting in 2022. 

Over the past several years, white and gray have been all the rage in cabinet painting. However, according to a recent study conducted by the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), 2022 designs will be moving away from white and heading toward more color and warmth.

The respondents of the survey are members of the NKBA and interior designers or distributors of kitchen and bath products. The survey reported that over the next three years, 43% believe more color – specifically warmer colors – and wood tones will be more popular. 

For instance, colorful cabinets with gold-tone hardware are on the rise, as are lighter stained woods that show more grain. In addition, when asked “where will designers be using BOLD colors in kitchen design in the next 3 years?” the top answer – 36% – said backsplashes, with cabinets coming in second at 31%. 

Cabinet Painting Colors for 2022 and Beyond

So if you’re getting ready to paint your cabinets and want to be on-trend now and over the next few years – you are probably wondering which colors are heating up? 

The most in-demand colors will be greens and blues. In fact, a whopping 39% pointed to green as the newest white, while 29% said blue is the preferred hue going forward. 

Respondents reported that, in general, nature is the inspiration for many kitchen makeovers. While white will likely always be popular, they also saw neutral colors moving away from the stark and more toward the earth – in muted tones like taupe, beige and tan. 

Let Our Cabinet Painting Pros Transform Your Kitchen 

How can you take advantage of these new trends in the New Year in your kitchen? At N-Hance®, we can help. With our cabinet painting service, we offer a color palette with the most popular, on-trend colors to choose from. 

You can also bring us a sample and we will match it if you have a different color in mind. We can bring your vision to life no matter what color you desire.  

Some options on our palette that are currently trending in the natural direction include:

  • Crisp Ocean for cabinets swimming in a light and dreamy blue with a hint of gray, bringing some coastal color and charm into your kitchen. 
  • Dutch Gray, which can complement a contemporary or traditional home with a dramatic touch of color. 
  • Bear Lake Blue, which is brighter and deeper than Crisp Ocean, taking inspiration from the real Bear Lake in Idaho and Utah. 
  • Evening Forest brings to mind a forest filled with evergreens. It’s different yet still neutral enough to go with any home’s decor. 
  • Willow Bark is the ideal choice if you’d like something off-white and interesting. It’s a timeless and lovely choice for warming up your kitchen, yet still sticking with a neutral.

Some of our other more neutral options for painting your cabinets include Pure White, Arctic Wind, Cream Lily, and Soothing Gray. For more drama, Navy Stone, Dense Gray, and Top Hat Black all fit the bill. 

Unsure which color is right for your home or your vision? Let N-Hance consult with you. We can talk about the pros and cons of each color and which will best complement your space.

Factors like the amount of light you get, the size of your kitchen, the number of cabinets you have, and the layout of the space all play a part in our recommendations for cabinet painting. You can even have your island’s cabinets painted one color and the balance of your cabinets painted a more neutral tone. To help you decide, we will bring samples into your home, so there’s no guessing when it comes to your final choice. 

Other Ways to Incorporate Color Into Your Kitchen 

Not quite ready to paint your kitchen cabinets green or blue? You can still use these as accent colors to warm up your space. 

For instance, if you opt for white cabinets, then consider painting your walls green or blue or choose a new backsplash tile that is nature-inspired. You can also shop around for artwork that brings the outdoors inside and infuses your kitchen with color. Other areas to consider adding color include fabric accents, such as seating and drapery, vent hoods, and countertops. 

If you have hardwood cabinets that are in good condition and are considering staining them instead, we can help there as well. At N-Hance, we offer 12 stains to choose from on our palette or can match a stain sample you bring us. 

Whatever tone you decide, we can bring out the beauty and luster of your original cabinets, restoring warmth to your kitchen. You’ll still be on-trend with kitchen cabinets that are natural, rustic, and wood-toned. 

With our cabinet painting service, we can transform the look of your kitchen, so it’s refreshed for the New Year ahead. Call N-Hance at (855) 642-6230 to set up a FREE consultation.
