Top Kitchen Design Trends

From stone backsplashes to luxury laundry rooms, we have wrapped up what design experts are saying are the new design trends! If you are considering a minor refresh or total home renovation, we hope you find inspiration for your next interior design project.

Seamless Backsplashes

Not a fan of classic subway tile or can’t ever seem to find the perfect backsplash? Expect to see less tile and more stone! A full-height backsplash has a beautiful and timeless design. While tile backsplashes can be trendy and change often, a full-height backsplash gives your kitchen an inspirational, yet everlasting look that never goes out of style. This is perfect for a clean, seamless look with no grout lines.

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! Pair it with a natural stone or quartz countertops from Cutting Edge Countertops to maximize your kitchen’s functionality!

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!

Pair Your New Countertop With The Color Of The Year

If you’re as invested in the latest home designs trends as we are, then you’ve already heard about the 2022 Colors of the Year. You’ve probably also noticed these colors have one thing in common: the 2022 honorees are green, from Sherwin-Williams’s Evergreen Fog to Benjamin Moore’s October Mist.

Why green? Different colors have the power to influence a range of emotions and can even affect your heart rate, blood pressure and breathing. Because of this, major paint brands found themselves gravitating toward soothing, verdant hues that create serene environments.

Evergreen Fog by Sherwin-Williams

Sherwin-Williams has selected the subtly soothing Evergreen Fog SW 9130 as its 2022 color of the year. This organic color can spread a comforting welcome in entryways, establish quiet and calm in bedrooms or bathrooms, and introduce invigorating energy to living rooms, kitchens and other common areas.

October Mist by Benjamin Moore

Benjamin Moore’s 2022 color of the year is a soft, silvery green called October Mist 1495. This botanical shade mimics the pale green of a flower stem and serves as the foundation for the brand’s larger 2022 color trends palette. The collection includes 14 hues inspired by nature that span tinted off-whites, warm earth tones and refreshed primary colors.

Coordinating Countertop Colors With The 2022 Colors Of The Year

Since we’re so used to seeing all-white kitchens and not everyone has an eye for decorating, you may wonder how you might be able to incorporate these beautiful green tones into your home. Find interior inspiration for how to pair countertop designs from Cutting Edge Countertops with the newly announced Colors of the Year.

Already one of our most popular quartz countertops, we love the idea of pairing Silestone’s Calacatta Gold with Evergreen Fog or October Mist.  The design’s blend of cream and blueish grey veins pairs perfectly with both colors of the year to create a combination that’s equally unique and comforting. And the quartz’s subtle gold adds a hint of glam to the soothing green hues.

Not a fan of white countertops? We also love pairing both statement shades, Evergreen Fog and October Mist, with the following complementary designs:

Quartz countertops are often the go-to choice for homeowners looking to update their kitchen and bathrooms because of its unparalleled strength and durability. Cutting Edge Countertops carries a wide range of quartz colors from top brands, so you are sure to find a vibrant or neutral quartz color that suits your style.

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.

5 Home Design Trends You Will See In 2020

A new year brings hope, excitement and mystery. What the next year, months and days will bring is anyone’s guess. One thing remains: The modern home and how society continues to live in it will always be changing. If you’re planning a renovation in 2020 check out these home design trends predicted to excite homeowners this year.

Backsplashes

andre francois mckenzie sZCteKrE unsplash

Slabs: If you find yourself lost in the endless choices of tile backsplash or the thought of having grout lines makes you hesitate, consider taking your countertop material one step further. A slab backsplash with a unique pattern or a lot of movement will make for an eye-catching design statement in your kitchen. If you are looking for something a little more abstract you can mix and match the backsplash slab with the countertop.

Countertops

Quartzite: Quartzite is rising in popularity amongst homeowners due to its beauty and durability. Quartzite is harder than granite and each slab is unique. This surface is also heat-resistant and more scratch resistant than engineered quartz.

Cabinetry

Three-tone Kitchens: We all have heard the term “two-tone kitchen cabinets” where the upper cabinets are one color and the lower cabinets another. This style dominated kitchens in the past couple of years. It is only natural that designers are building on the trend rather than moving away from it. With a three-tone kitchen, one more color is introduced to create an asymmetry in the color palette that helps define areas of the kitchen or functions.

Islands

Multifunctional Island Centers: Kitchen islands have always been a part of the home but they have certainly been evolving over the years. Many homeowners have taken kitchen islands beyond just storage and a place to sit. Islands are getting bigger and taking on more of a function than ever before. Data shows many homeowners will add in or renovate other features of an island such as a microwave or cooktop. This shows how islands are becoming multifunctional features of the kitchen.

Bathroom

Floating Double Vanities: Choosing to float a vanity frees up floor space which gives the appearance of more room. It also makes cleaning the floor easier than with a furniture style vanity that has legs which can trap dust. So it easy to see why many homeowners are opting for this style in their bathrooms!

These are just of a few of the many great home design trends of 2020 we expect to see. Now it’s your turn! Which of these trends are you excited about? What trends are you predicting in 2020?
