By mid-2021, homeowners raised their average kitchen remodeling costs up to $40,000 for major improvements, and even smaller remodels saw investments up to $10,000, according to Realtor.com. The new year will likely usher in even more remodeling projects to update the heart of the home for aesthetic design and increased functionality.

The 2022 Houzz Kitchen Trends Study revealed that homeowners were willing to dish out the big bucks for their top design preferences regardless of price increases from shortages and tariffs. Quartz and granite countertops were heavily favored, but over one third of respondents opted for butcher blocks or wood slab. In 2022, kitchen islands will look more like kitchen continents with 39% of homeowners extending their meal prep space up to 7 feet in new remodels.

According to the 2022 Houzz Kitchen Trends Study, Americans are dropping big bucks on their kitchen remodels. In this seventh annual survey of almost 2,400 homeowners on its site who are in the middle of or planning to rehab their kitchen, Houzz found that the median spend by mid-2021 had ticked up 14%, to $40,000, for major improvements, and up 25%, to $10,000, for smaller remodels.

These kitchen renovations weren’t just cosmetic; behind-the-scenes structural systems also got some much-needed upgrades. More than 2 in 5 homeowners changed the layout in their kitchens, and more than a third removed a wall or improved electrical and plumbing networks.
