Being home more through the duration of the pandemic has inspired homeowners to redefine their space and style.
It isn’t just that dining room tables were transformed into desks for work and school, living rooms became in-home theaters, and bedrooms became at-home gyms – though that’s definitely part of it. It’s also that people began to see how to create spaces that are more functional and easier to care for. They also, often, wanted to update and refresh rooms and find ways to make their homes an extension of their personality.
Through the pandemic new ideas and trends have emerged, particularly in the kitchen. It is the perfect time to redefine the heart of your home, your kitchen, with these trends for 2022.
Whether you want to update your kitchen floors, countertops, or backsplashes, or all three, The Floor Store is here to help you create the space of your dreams.
Green is the color for kitchens in 2022. Green is inviting, fresh, and rejuvenating, making it perfect for the center of your home. Green pairs beautifully with natural wood tones to create a light, calming room your family will want to spend time in. Choose green granite or marble countertops with wood look tile flooring, luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring, or wide plank laminate flooring in lighter hues. Or pair a more neutral countertop with green cabinets.
Tile may be the traditional choice for a backsplash, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick with it. Choose a sleek marble for your countertops and use that for your backsplash, as well. Not only does this make a bold statement, create a seamless line through your kitchen, and show elegance and style, but a single marble slab backsplash is easier to clean.
Tile remains the standard for kitchen flooring and backsplashes because it is low-maintenance, easy to keep clean, and is waterproof. Patterned tile is gorgeous and is an instant focal point in a kitchen. Choose tile with a geometric pattern, such as Emser’s Rhapsody Argyle, to create beautiful lines in your room. Rising in popularity are floral designs on tile, such as Emser’s Bauhaus Floral tile. Subtle color graduations in these designs grab the eye whether they are on the floor or the wall.
