When the COVID-19 pandemic began in early 2020, one surprising trend emerged; millions of Americans began taking on home improvement projects. For some, lockdowns provided the time they needed to finally get to the projects that they had previously put off. Others took advantage of stimulus checks to tackle some renovations. And still more decided to create home office spaces and homeschool areas as their jobs became remote and schools turned to e-learning.

Even though many employees have returned to the office and lockdowns have eased, the renovation bug is still catching on. For years, studies have shown that the most popular room in the home to renovate is the kitchen. Whether homeowners are looking to sell and want to increase the value of their home, or they simply want to make their home’s hub more modern, welcoming, or help it better fit their lifestyle, they’ll often choose to invest in their kitchen. This is even more true in the wake of the pandemic when many families began cooking and eating at home more frequently.

Thinking about remodeling your own kitchen this year? Keep reading to learn a few of the top kitchen remodeling trends for 2022, and how the top professionals for kitchen remodeling Las Vegas can help you achieve them.

Colorful Cabinets

Just a decade ago, if you walked into a home, you could almost guarantee that the kitchen cabinets would be a natural wood tone. Today, this trend has given way to one that’s far more colorful.

Cabinets painted in a bright pop of pink or red, muted shades of green and blue, or earthy tones have been gaining popularity in recent years. One reason is that paint can provide an affordable way to upgrade the look of your kitchen cabinets without having to replace them — a project that can cost anywhere from $1,800 to more than $9,000, depending on the size of your kitchen and the type of cabinets you choose.

Black Fixtures

Copper and brass fixtures began replacing shiny chrome and gold over a decade ago. But now, matte black accents are taking over. From faucets to cabinet handles, these accents can update your space, and fit in well with a variety of styles. Pair them with gray or other moody-toned cabinets, dark floors, and modern backsplashes for an ultra-modern or minimalist look. Or, mix white and black accents for a classic feel in your space.

While swapping out your old faucet for a new one may seem simple enough, this isn’t always the case. If your home’s plumbing and fixtures are more than a decade old, you have your heart set on a faucet that requires a more complicated installation, or you’re moving your sink to a new location, you’ll want to leave this renovation project to the pros. The top experts for kitchen remodeling Las Vegas can help ensure that your new fixtures are properly installed and ready to go.


Banquettes in eat-in kitchens have gone in and out of style many times in the past century. Today’s generation of recent home buyers might think of banquettes alongside memories of their grandparent’s homes, but likely not their own childhood homes. But now, these cozy nooks are making a comeback.

Modern banquettes are making their way into cozy, Farmhouse, or minimalist-inspired kitchens. They’re simpler than the banquettes of past decades and often seen piled with colorful throw pillows. Banquettes are more than just a trendy way to update your kitchen; they can also be a great way to add more seating to a small kitchen.

Hidden Appliances and Pantries

Often, “hiding” your appliances in a cabinet or creating a walk-in pantry where there previously wasn’t one means a total kitchen remodel is in order. This may require you to move your appliances around and change the layout of your kitchen.

Moving water lines and gas lines can not only be tricky, but also dangerous if it isn’t done properly. While someone with DIY home renovation experience might be able to build a cabinet for your fridge, leave the water and gas line installation, or moving, to the professionals.

Slab Backsplashes

Kitchen backsplashes likely began as a convenient way to make your walls easy to clean, particularly behind your stove or sink. But today, they’re a way to add color, texture, and unique style to your space. In previous years, white or gray subway tiles have been the popular choice for modern kitchen backsplashes. Now, that trend is being surpassed by a new one — slab backsplashes.

These backsplashes feature large marble or granite (or marble or granite look-alike) tiles. They’re mounted close together, creating thin grout lines that often disappear into the tiles, especially when a grout color is used that is similar to the color of the tiles themselves.

Oversized Islands

Open-floor plan kitchens with lots of space have been a popular trend for years now. In fact, open floor plan homes have been the standard for over a decade. However, this is one trend that experts say will soon be on the way out.

Whether you’re planning to create an open floor plan or not, one trend that’s taking up some of that open space is oversized islands. This trend is one that’s born more from convenience than from style. A larger island provides more storage, seating, and counter space that families can utilize.

Planning Your Kitchen Remodel

From colorful cabinets to classic black fixtures to appliances and pantries that blend right in, these top kitchen remodeling trends are set to dominate in 2022. Think that one of these trends would look great in your own kitchen? Now is the time to start planning for your next renovation project.
