The 2020 Houzz & Home Survey found that kitchen projects were the most popular renovations undertaken by homeowners, with investments into major remodels jumping 14 percent to $40,000, compared to 2019.
In 2021, the average cost for a kitchen remodel was pegged at around $15,000, with major projects generating as much as $51,000 in expenses. The investment will be well worth it, though. In fact, according to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs Value report, a kitchen remodeling in Atlanta or in other areas can recoup 72% on a minor kitchen project, 57% on a midrange major kitchen project, and 54% on an upscale kitchen project.
If you’re thinking of commissioning a kitchen renovation or remodeling in 2022, you already know that you have a lot of benefits to look forward to after the project is completed. These include higher aesthetic value for your home, a higher resale value if you ever want to put it on the market, and the satisfaction of having a kitchen that looks and feels better.
To help you make the most out of the process, consider these project suggestions for kitchen remodeling trends in 2022.
Chief among the most desirable kitchen remodeling elements in the next year will be components that serve more than just one purpose. According to the 2021 “What Home Buyers Really Want” report from the National Association of Home Builders, walk-in pantries and sink workstations or double-basin sinks are the future.
These components are wanted by homeowners because they provide space for performing more than one task at a time. For instance, a walk-in pantry can include storage for small appliances; similarly, double-basin sinks or sink workstations can help facilitate both food preparation and cleaning, while allowing for multiple configurations that you can customize according to your needs.
Elements that mimic nature will also be big in 2022. Rounded accents such as arched doorways, circular trays, curved back seating, and others are expected to be designed into kitchen spaces, while white and wood tones will also be desirable.
Additionally, modern wood finishes will continue to see a revival in 2022. Light and medium-tone wood grains, in particular, are forecasted to be scene stealers.
Minimalism and smart technology
Finally, kitchens in 2022 will be expected to meld minimalism with smart technology. Invest in kitchen remodeling that features smart appliances that provide multiple functionalities and connectivity with smart home systems.
This will be complemented by flexible lighting, which can be adjusted according to the task that you need to focus on. In fact, the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s 2022 Design Trends Report says that app and voice-controlled lighting will be a hit among homeowners in 2022.
