Today’s kitchens are the heart of every home and yours should be beautiful! Wishing you had new cabinets? When you refinish cabinets, you get all the beauty of new cabinets at a lower cost and with a faster turnaround. What’s not to love about that option?

During the past two years, many people have discovered they are spending more time in the kitchen on newfound hobbies, like baking and cooking. This is especially true if you work from home. Yet, if your cabinets are dull, worn, and scuffed, they’re probably taking away from your enjoyment. Don’t endure them any longer; simply refinish your cabinets.

When you refinish your cabinets, you can highlight their natural beauty, improve the look and appeal of your whole kitchen, and even boost your home’s value. You can do this all in a way that is affordable and won’t break the bank. 

What’s on Tap for 2022?

Before you make a move though, it’s important to know what’s on the horizon in terms of cabinet refinishing trends for 2022 and beyond.  

According to a recent study conducted by the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), nature-inspired kitchens are taking center stage. The study surveyed its members of interior designers and kitchen and bath distributors and found that wood tones – that show your cabinet’s wood grains – are on top of emerging kitchen trends for the year ahead. This means the industry is moving away from the wildly popular gray and white cabinets and taking a leap toward a look that is more organic. 

What’s So Great About Wood Tones When You’re Refinishing Cabinets?

Wood tones offer a simple way to warm up your kitchen while underscoring the beauty of your hardwood cabinets. When it comes to colors, you can choose from a wide range, whether you’re interested in a light honey-colored stain or a deeper, richer one. 

No matter the hue you choose for your stain, you’ll make a statement in a simple, yet dramatic way because it shows the unique character of the wood your cabinets are made from. Since the grain of your cabinets is completely distinct, your kitchen will truly be a personalized space different from any other. Plus it will be completely in style with the 2022 kitchen trends. 

While wood tones are thought of as more traditional, you can still create a cool, effortless vibe in your kitchen if you want a more contemporary look. You can achieve this in any number of ways, from the color you paint the walls to the hardware used on your newly stained cabinets. Add in some contemporary artwork and decor for an edge to your space and an interesting, layered look. 

With whatever you do choose, you can rest assured that refinishing your cabinets will not only give you a beautiful new look in your kitchen but one that is easy to clean and maintain. Wood doesn’t show dirt and fingerprints like white or black cabinets do, making it an ideal choice if you have kids and a busy family.

Another advantage? Refinishing your cabinets can be an affordable choice and an excellent investment in your home, one you will see in returns, whether you’re planning to stay in place or sell in the near future.

Other Trends to Keep in Mind for 2022 & Beyond

Beyond nature and wood tones coming into play in a major way in the year ahead, there are a few other trends to keep in mind when you’re making over your kitchen. For instance, when it comes to fixtures, like drawer pulls and doorknobs, shine is out. Instead, the trend ahead is matte or brushed finishes in black, stainless, nickel, or pewter.

For the balance of the kitchen, like your backsplash or wall color, think greens and blues. These are growing in prominence as people want to bring the outdoors inside. These hues are replacing the old favorites – white and gray – with consumers wanting to add more nature-inspired colors into their space. 

If you’re reworking other parts of your space, some other upgrades to consider include adding a mobile-friendly workstation, app-controlled appliances, and voice-activated lighting. So, while your kitchen looks serene and calm, inspired by nature, it will also be high-tech and hard at work for your busy life.
