Kitchen Cabinet Design Trends in 2022

Kitchen Cabinet Design Trends in 2022

The French Refinery is a source of inspiration that has helped clients turn their dreams into reality, no matter the direction they take in kitchen cabinetry design over the years. We thought it would be interesting to see what experts (including ourselves!) have to say about kitchen design trends for 2022.

Multi-Use Space

The kitchen is no longer just a place to cook and eat food. They have become vital hubs in the household. These rooms are used to do homework for the kids, allow adults to work from home remotely, and provide a place to entertain family and friends.

Handleless/Recessed hands

Smooth action push-open/close cabinet doors and drawers is the best way to show sophistication. In 2021, handleless was very popular because of its sleek, simple appearance. 


Lighting is a crucial element of any kitchen, along with the cabinetry. In 2022, there will be more accent lighting. This could include small countertop lamps, task-oriented lighting and warmer tone LED bulbs.

Storage Pantries

Pantry storage has become an integral part of any modern kitchen. They replace traditional kitchen drawers and cupboards with dedicated storage that allows homeowners to organize all their food products in one place.

Mixture of Vintage and Antiques

We expect more vintage and antique furniture to be used in modern kitchen decor in 2022 and beyond, continuing the trend of “warm and comfortable”.
