When it comes to seeing the latest in-home design trends and styles, there’s no better place to look than the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS)! This month, KBIS was held in Orlando, FL with more than 1,200 exhibitors showcasing the newest countertop designs, lighting, appliances and more.
Even if you couldn’t attend the event, we’ve put compiled a list of some of the new styles and trends featured at KBIS 2022.
Warm Countertop Designs
While white marble-look alike quartz countertops have dominated kitchens in recent years, in 2022 we’re starting to shift to warmer neutrals. At The Countertop Factory, we carry a large collection of countertop styles featuring warm white, gray and beige tones.
Our Signature Collection also features warm countertop designs like Calacatta Nuvo, Blanco Maple, Clarino and more. The Signature Collection features best-selling designs that are constantly in stock at our showrooms to give you a quick project turnaround and the best value possible.
With both Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore choosing shades of green as the color of the year for 2022, greens will lead the charge as bold accent colors make their way back into kitchens. However, it’s not all verdant tones this year. We can also expect to see Very Peri, Pantone’s 2022 color of the year, and other pops of colors emerge as well.
When it comes to appliances, stainless steel is still the most popular finish. Black stainless steel, however, is gaining traction as a popular alternative due to its sleek, modern look. We can also expect to see more homeowners buying appliances for specific purposes like wine fridges or coffee stations. This year the appliances category focused on incorporating innovative smart features. We saw interconnectivity between appliances in an effort to make home life easier and more efficient.
Trending Light Fixtures
Bold, statement lighting fixtures will continue to be prevalent in 2022, with a focus on unique designs, interesting shapes and sizes. Smart light bulbs are also increasing in popularity for their convenience factor. With these, you can turn the lights on and off remotely or even program them according to your schedule to save energy! We can even expect more LED options for lighting fixtures.
Sustainability in Design
This year, homeowners are searching for ways to incorporate nature into their home and organic design elements provide that connection. In 2022 we can expect to see more natural materials like wood and stones like granite and marble being used in kitchen and bathroom designs. These materials create warmth in any space. With sustainability being one of the key trends at KBIS 2022, it’s safe to say that going green isn’t going anywhere anytime soon!
