Summer Looks For Your Home: Stay Within The 2022 Trends

Did you know $15,000 is the average price of a home renovation? Don’t worry if you’re on a strict budget, we are going to show you various changes that you can make in your home to create a sense of newness while staying within your budget.

Renovating your home is a great way to refresh and create a space you love. If your home is outdated or you’re ready for a change, you’ve come to the right place to learn about the latest trends to add to your home.  

Outdoor Spaces

Following the pandemic, people wanted to spend as much time outside as possible. There are ways to transform your outdoor space such as a pool or outdoor shower, or even a fire pit and a hot tub. 

Incorporating an outdoor kitchen is a great way to feel like you have an outdoor escape without leaving your home. Homeowners are gravitating toward the idea of building a simple outdoor entertainment area with a kitchen countertop, grill and other small pleasures to transform a backyard into a dream oasis.

Creating Bold Spaces

Believe it or not, bold wallpaper is a 2022 trend you don’t want to miss. We aren’t talking about old, outdated, yellowing wallpaper. Bright colors and prints are in! People are using color to express themselves or adding compact surfaces on shower walls or bringing a creative aspect into a space by finishing off a table with a granite or marble top.

Cutting Edge Countertops offers a wide selection of materials including granite, quartz, marble, soapstone, quartzite and compact surface. Contact Cutting Edge Countertops to determine which material is best for your shower wall applications, bathroom vanities, laundry rooms and more.

Going Green

While it might seem hard to believe green is one of the popular trends in 2022, its fresh and natural characteristics draw homeowners to its warm appeal. Bringing green into a space provides a sense of welcoming and belonging into a home and also symbolizes new growth.

Another popular option is to update your kitchen countertops with natural stone, as these surfaces represent the beauty of mother nature and offer an option for a one-of-a-kind stone.

Sustainability

When you think of green, you may also think of sustainability. Solar panels, new windows, and updated irrigation systems are all on the rise, too. People are quickly realizing that making their homes more sustainable is pretty easy and it can often save you money in the long run!

Home Offices

Now that many people are working from home, offices are a must. People are tired of working out of the guest room and are converting extra spaces into home offices.

Creating a space you love to be in will help get you through the work day. Whether you love bold and bright colors or prefer natural tones in your workspace, a home office is a must in 2022.

Windows and Mirrors

Another home renovation project that’s easy is adding mirrors. Large mirrors create a space that feels bigger than it actually is. They also can help open up the room to feel more light and airy, which is perfect for rooms in the home that have little to no windows.

Adding windows is a bigger project than just buying mirrors, but people are using this idea to transform their homes. As we’ve seen with a few other trends, capturing the outdoor-feel inside is what people want. When adding windows or upgrading existing ones will allow natural light to enter the home and add a feeling of openness.

Trends in 2022

HONED VS POLISHED MARBLE

HONED VS POLISHED MARBLE COUNTERTOPS

HONED VS POLISHED MARBLE COUNTERTOPS

Are you interested in learning about a honed versus polished finish? Then look no further! When choosing natural stone for countertops there are a lot of choices to make including the stone type, color, edges and the type of finish you prefer. Something as simple as the finish can drastically change the appearance of the stone, and the overall look of your space. To help you determine which finish to select for your project, Cutting Edge Countertops is here to guide you in your choice.

The definition of honed is when the stone slab has been ground to a smooth, flat consistent surface. This finish is created by stopping short of the last stage of polishing, leaving the stone with a non-shiny, matte look and velvet-like touch. The definition of polished is just the opposite! A polished surface creates a beautiful glossy shine from the natural reflection of the stone’s crystals. An alternative to marble-like countertops, such as quartz, can offer the beautiful look and feel of marble, with increased durability and less overall maintenance. Marble-like countertops are offered in a variety of colors, and can be either honed or polished depending on your lifestyle needs.

HONED MARBLE COUNTERTOPS

Honed Marble Countertop Characteristics:

Since honed marble is a matte finish it is more resistant to scratches. Even if honed marble does get scratched, it is less noticeable because the scratch won’t be as easy to see when light reflects off it, like it would on a polished surface. On the other hand, honed stone is more susceptible to stains, so it is important to wipe up spills immediately. Additionally, a matte finish is less slippery than polished when wet, making it a great choice for flooring.

Honed Stone Recap:

  • Looks: Matte
  • Feel: Velvet/Satin
  • Durability: Scratch resistant, but easily stained
  • Maintenance: Regular cleaning with soap and water; clean up spills immediately and it is suggested to re-seal over time
  • Suggested Application: Countertops and high traffic areas, such as floors for the bathroom, foyer or living room
Honed Finish

POLISHED MARBLE COUNTERTOPS

Polished Countertop Characteristics:

Polished stone is coated which acts as a protectant, making it less susceptible to stains. Consequently, the highly reflective surface means it’s more visible to scratches. Since polished stone is very smooth, this makes it a dangerous option for flooring in high traffic areas or bathrooms because it can be very slippery when wet. It is, however, a classic choice for kitchen and bathroom countertops.

Polished Marble Recap:

  • Look: Glossy and Shiny
  • Feel: Smooth
  • Durability: Scratch and etch easily, but more stain-resistant
  • Maintenance: Regular cleaning with soap and water; wipe up spills immediately
  • Suggested Application: Kitchen and bathroom countertops, fireplace surrounds and walls

Kitchen Countertop Cleaning Tips

Eager to make a fresh start, but not sure how to get your kitchen in shape? It’s easy to overlook your kitchen countertops when it comes to cleaning, but these spaces can be a breeding ground for germs. Make sure you are making the most of your cleaning efforts by following these simple tips for getting your cleaning done quickly and efficiently. Once you’re finished, you’ll enjoy a sparkling kitchen and have more time to relax in front of an open window with a refreshing beverage.

How To Clean Quartz Countertops

Quartz is a man-made, durable material for kitchen countertops. Strong, stain resistant and heat resistant, your kitchen countertop will last you for years. However, quartz does still require some care to keep it looking its best. Here are some tips on how to keep your countertop clean:

  • Use only cleaning products that are designed specifically for quartz surfaces
  • For daily cleaning, use an ammonia-free glass cleaner or any non-abrasive household cleaner that does not contain lemon, ammonia or bleach as they can damage the surface of the quartz
  • Use mild liquid soap, warm water and a soft cloth to remove most residues from your quartz countertop
  • Wipe up spills immediately from your quartz surface

Does Quartz Stain?

Quartz countertops are unlikely to stain because it is a hard material and is non-porous, meaning liquids won’t be absorbed into the surface of your countertop the way they might if you spilled on unsealed natural stone countertops such as marble. Although quartz countertops have a high stain resistance, they are not completely stained proof as some food substances can leave a moderate to very faint stain behind. To prevent staining, any spills, dirt, grease or oils should be wiped up quickly to reduce the chance of a stain forming.

Countertop Protection Tips

  • Do not place hot items out of the oven or stove directly on the stone surface. Additionally, heat-generating appliances, such as slow cookers, can cause some stones to become discolored or crack. Always protect your top by placing a trivet or hot pad to allow for airflow under the hot item.
  • Avoid chopping or slicing directly on the stone countertop to prevent scratches and dulling your knives. Always use a cutting board.
  • Use placemats and coasters to protect your surface from discoloration and staining.
  • Do not stand or sit on stone countertops. Some stones may crack when excessive weight is applied.

Can I use bleach on my countertop?

We don’t recommend using bleach or any other chemical cleaners to clean your countertops. Bleach and other harsh chemicals can damage the surface of your countertop, breaking down the resin and causing discoloration. They can also wear down your countertop’s surface, leaving it vulnerable to spills.

Are there specific cleaning products I should use?

Most residue can be removed using a simple routine of wiping down your countertops with a soft cloth and warm water. If your countertops are particularly grimy, you may add mild liquid dish soap to the water; however, soap is not always necessary.
Products such as MORE™ Surface Care offers a great selection of stone-safe options such as the Stone & Quartz Cleaner + Protector. This cleaner can be purchased in any of the Cutting Edge Countertops showrooms.

Pops of Color

Kitchens featuring grey and all white design features have always been popular but that’s not what is trending currently! Color is making a return and we can expect to see homeowners incorporating a variety of hues into their homes.

With both Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore choosing shades of green as the 2022 color of the year; green is the current major kitchen trend.

Kitchen Islands take the Spotlight

Kitchen islands serve as a meal prep area, homework station and a buffet line for family dinners! Designers speculate their popularity will increase as homeowners focus on improving their storage space. Consider including cabinets or built-in features that allow you to get the most out of your space!

Organic & Natural Materials

We also expect more natural materials to gain popularity. From natural stones like granite and marble to incorporating wood elements – natural styles are prominent in both kitchens and bathrooms.

Rounded Edges & Curves

We also can expect the kitchen’s classic hard edges and surfaces to take a softer, curvier turn. Curved edges bring a soft calm to the room. They can even allow for a little more seating room at the island without resorting to placing a chair right on a corner!

The Perfect Gift Guide for any Homeowner

It’s the season of giving! But we know with getting the house ready for guests, completing last-minute tasks and having to finish your gift shopping, it’s easy to lose track of time. That’s why we now bring to you practical and stylish gift ideas for the home that will bring a smile to the face of anyone in your life.

Pillows

Don’t sleep on this great gift idea. No one likes to wake up with a sore neck, but it’s inevitable. Give your loved one the gift of good sleep with a good pillow. There are different types of pillows that are suited for different types of sleepers. For example, if your loved one is a side sleeper, a cervical pillow will help keep their neck aligned and prevent a sore neck. If your loved one is a back sleeper, a contoured pillow will provide neck and head support.

Cutting Boards (Unique or Personalized)

Cutting boards are a kitchen necessity. In addition to your generic cutting board, give the gift of a cutting board that is personalized or unique. There are boards with a variety of designs and styles, but they also can be personalized with a person’s name, a family name, a favorite word or a saying.

Portable Speaker

Portable speakers provide an easy way to listen to music and podcasts on the go. It’s a great way to exercise and get in some tunes. Your loved one will be able to take their music anywhere with this small and lightweight speaker that can clip to a belt loop or purse strap.

Decorative Vase

Decorative vases can be used to hold flowers, herbs or even fruit. They’re a great way to add some color to an otherwise drab room. They also can be used as a candle holder to create a romantic atmosphere.

Sauce Subscription Box

Give the gift of sauces! Sauces are a great way to add flavor to any dish. A sauce subscription box is a great way to get different sauces delivered straight to your loved one’s door every month.

Air Fryer

Air fryers are great because they don’t use oil to cook any food, which makes them perfect for healthy eaters or those that are trying to cut back on oil, sugar or salt. It’s also a healthier way to cook because food is cooked with hot air instead of oil, which means less calories.

Automatic Floor Vacuum

An automatic floor vacuum is a great way to make your loved one’s life easier. It’s designed to suck up dirt, dust and debris from hard floors, such as tile, wood and laminate. It’s easy to use and can do the job of a mop, broom and vacuum cleaner.

Creating An On-Trend Kitchen Without Sacrificing Your Personal Style

It’s a good idea to keep an eye on home design trends if you’re planning to remodel any part of your home. But what’s trendy right now may not be exactly what you would love to see in your kitchen. How do you give the heart of your home a fresh look without sacrificing your own unique style? It’s easier than you’d think.

Know the Current Design Trends

Just clicking through a few home design shows on TV will make one thing clear: designers love a kitchen with a wide-open layout and all-white elements. But although this style feels airy and fresh, not everyone loves a colorless kitchen. If what you really want is the cozy feel of colors in your home, don’t worry. You can have an updated kitchen that still reflects your personality.

Bring Color Home

If you love the idea of adding a bold color to your kitchen, there’s no reason you can’t do it and still stay on-trend. With a little planning, an unexpected shade can elevate your home’s appearance. A countertop in a rich, saturated hue can even become the unifying feature of your home’s decor. To make certain the effect is brightening without being overwhelming, just make sure the rest of the kitchen is in harmony with the look.

Balance is the Key

The important thing to remember is to balance any eye-catching design elements with soothing, neutral tones. If you add a colorful countertop, opt for light, neutral-colored cabinets. Think of the muted surroundings as the frame for the star of the show. Adding a splash of color to a white, open-plan kitchen is a great way to marry the popular design trends of the day and still have a home that fits your personality.

If you’re ready to bring an exciting blend of style and your unique personality to your kitchen, visit one of our five showrooms where our Design Consultants are ready to assist you today! Our experienced team can offer their product knowledge and inspire with ideas and on-trend information. Call us today at 888-515-TOPS (8677) and let us help you bring your vision to life.

By having an allotted amount, you will have a realistic expectation of what you will be able to accomplish in any project.

3. Know Your Space

Some things to take into account for a complete renovation are plumbing, electrical connections and traffic patterns in the home.

Before you schedule an appointment in one of our showrooms, it’s very important to take some measurements and dimensions of your current space. These don’t have to be exact but they will provide an idea of how much material is needed for your project to provide a quote.
