RTA Cabinet Trends in 2022 and Beyond

Whether you’re a homeowner, reseller, contractor, or maybe just flipping homes, you know that finding a design that won’t feel dated a few years later is crucial for your build. When considering cabinets for your home or business, it’s important to keep trends in mind. In particular, trends that are classic and sustainable for long periods in time.

Most kitchen trends last at least ten years or more and most certainly don’t change all at once. Keeping up with 2022’s kitchen trends will ensure your kitchen design has a long lifespan.

At ABS Cabinets Direct, we’re always looking at past trends, keeping up with research and purchasing trends, talking to experts, and projecting the future to find out what looks are going to last through the next decade. Here are several you can count on to keep your kitchen fresh.

Minimalistic Style 

Kitchens this year and beyond will continue to keep things tidy and clean. You can expect kitchens in the next several years to rely on smart functionality and more technology.

Minimalistic cabinet design always includes clean lines, but expect to see even more lines in the kitchen in the form of fine-grain woods, geometric patterns, and angular design on faucets and appliances.


Bold Colors and Variations 

Bold colors are a risk in kitchen design because you can’t be sure how long a particular color will avoid looking dated. However, we’ve lately seen bold color make its way back into the kitchen—and not just as an accent color.

Look for bolder, brighter colors on everything – including cabinets. We’ve recently added several color options such as a deep navy and a dark walnut to our offering. When in doubt, select colors that can double as neutrals like deep plums, navy blues, gray-greens, and earth tones.
