Homeowners all over Georgia spent 2022 making their houses into homes by doing remodels wherever they could, but these remodels can get costly if you know you want a change but can’t decide where. Floors were the most popular search of all home remodeling topics all year for a reason. It’s a change you can see in every room of your house and almost always costs less than a new kitchen or bathroom. Engineered hardwood boomed in 2022, a trend we fully expect to continue into 2023 and trend upward for a long time, giving you assurance that your purchase now will reap rewards when you’re ready to turn over the keys in the future. Engineered hardwood is made up of a real wood veneer on top of several layers of medium to high-density fiberboard or plywood on the bottom. This construction is measured in millimeters and has a direct correlation to walking comfortability, as a thicker plank can better support pressure applied to it, as well as better absorbing sound. Another measurement included in engineered hardwood is the mil value, which is the thickness of the uppermost wear layer. Increasing this thickness adds to the flooring’s durability and overall longevity. With the combination of a natural hardwood look and durability, engineered hardwood flooring can give your home a timeless look that actually lasts a lifetime. Now that you’ve been acquainted, let’s jump into our top engineered flooring trends for 2023.

 

Dark Maple

Maple wood is a sleek and smooth wood, not having many knots nor having natural weathering or divots. Perfect for those who love a modern look or want their floors like they just got them done every day. Maple naturally doesn’t exaggerate the tree rings or grain which means planks have a buttery smooth look that catches light beautifully and makes its surroundings lustrous by association. Applying a stain to maple hardwood can be very difficult as it has a tight grain structure. This is a problem that vanishes when choosing engineered hardwood. In addition to this, engineered maple stands up to pets, children, and day-to-day foot traffic better than solid wood with its uppermost wear layer. Planks can be up to 6 feet, making spaces feel bigger and hallways looking like runways.

 

Dark Hickory

For what we’ve said about maple, completely remove it from your mind when reading about hickory. Hickory is more tailored to the rustic taste, with pock marks, knots and grain patterns being its specialty. No one style is better than another, with the variance of these two options being evidenced. Hickory also takes to stain differently than other woods, resulting in a spectrum of contrast from one side of a plank to another, adding more character to the already long list this wood provides. Dark hickory is a perfect option for white kitchens, giving a unique contrast that makes your floors seen while letting your cabinets attract the eye.  Installation for these engineered floors is incredibly easy for installers, giving the ability to install over concrete, wood, vinyl floors, and radiant heat systems.

 

Light Oak

Oak is a very traditional flooring, coming in a multitude of warm colors that make a space feel cozy and lived in. Oak is a bright wood and riddled with original characteristics of the tree it came from. Having oak floors suits the homeowners that love their furniture and want it to be the talking point of a room, or the ‘farmhouse style’ of monotone walls and simple color palettes. These floors allow you to keep your palette how you want it while adding flair in a place that can’t be ignored. Oak floors are commonly fumed, a process that accelerates aging in the wood to emphasize and accentuate its dark features rather than staining. Some flooring types are unique and may offer the detail you want on any given plank but look odd when outfitted together in a room. This is not the case for oak. The slight variations between plank colors and the simple palette it employs makes the connections between the tongue and grooves very pleasant to look at.

 

Whitewashed Oak

The whitewashed look has been on a fire trend recently and doesn’t look like it will be going away any time soon. Most associated with oak flooring, the blanketing color gives a beachy feel without making your home look nautical. Picture your dream beach vacation house, with the outside and inside seamlessly transforming into one, and the ambient sense of calmness and serenity in the air. Ok, open your eyes now. You can have that feel in your current home for a fraction of what it costs to move to Tybee. Whitewashed floors are great for accent color furniture and decor, letting you keep a consistent color scheme through your main furniture, walls, and floors, while leaving the door open for your pieces that pop. Oak is a typical suitor for this color choice as the rings and grain of the wood fit the vibe the color emits. The natural wavelength pattern that runs through the wood emulates the waves on the shore of the oceanfront feel these floors will give your home.

 

Investing in engineered hardwood flooring is an investment in the beauty, value, and longevity of your home. In the current real estate market, buyers are looking for move-in ready homes that require little renovation or changing. Finding an engineered flooring that suits your home will not only give you everyday satisfaction, but also adds property value putting in quality material that will last with your home in the long run both in durability and style. InDesign has engineered flooring options that expand well beyond this list and that will surely cater to any style of home out there. With the recent advancements in engineered hardwood, our installers can give you the look you’ve been dreaming of in no time at all. Give us a call at 678.607.2935 or stop by at our flooring showroom today to see how close your look is to becoming reality.

Pets are beloved members of the family yet are still animals which means that they will be affected by the flooring options chosen in your home. Some pets have claws that can permanently damage certain types of flooring so let’s discuss pet-friendly, durable flooring options to ensure your pet has a happy home! Consider these four types:

 

Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring is a great choice for any home, but it’s especially useful in homes with pets. Vinyl flooring is easy to clean, which means you can keep your floors looking their best with minimal effort. Plus, it’s durable enough to withstand the wear and tear that comes from having a pet—and unlike wood floors, it won’t scratch or dent easily.

Vinyl flooring also comes in a variety of colors and textures that you can choose from that’ll match your design aesthetic. Whether you need something traditional or modern, neutral or bold, there’s sure to be something on our website or in our showroom that will fit your needs!

 

Hardwood Flooring

There are several reasons why hardwood flooring is a great option for pet owners:

-Easy to clean – Hardwood floors are easier to clean than carpet and other types of flooring. They can be cleaned with a damp mop or by sweeping and vacuuming them on a regular basis.

-Durable – Hardwood floors are also durable than many other types of flooring materials, so they’re less likely to show wear and tear over time.

-Low maintenance – With regular cleaning and care, hardwood floors can last a lifetime without needing any major repairs or replacements.

 

Stone, Tile and Concrete Flooring

These flooring materials are an excellent choice for dog owners. Scratches and stains don’t stand much of a chance! These surfaces are extremely hard, easy to clean, durable, and long-lasting. Clean-up is a breeze, even if you don’t get to the spill right away.

 

Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is a popular choice for homeowners who have pets, as it is a durable and easy-to-care-for option that can withstand the wear and tear of household pets. It’s important to note that laminate flooring is not a magic solution: if you have a pet that spends most of its time indoors, such as a cat or dog, you will still need to do regular cleaning and maintenance on your laminate flooring. Additionally, laminate flooring is often considered in high-traffic areas because it does not require glue joints like wood flooring. However, this also means that there are no places where dirt can collect and build up over time which makes cleaning up after pets easier than some other options!

We offer a variety of different types of flooring that will work great with your pets and make your home a perfect place for them to live. We are here to help you find the right type of flooring for your pets so that you can have a safe and healthy environment for them to live in.

Your kitchen countertops are often the first thing people notice when they walk into your kitchen, so it’s important to make sure you’re making the right choice with your countertop material. Whether you’re looking for a timeless look or something modern and trendy, there’s no shortage of materials out there that will give you the look you want.

Here are some of the latest trends in kitchen countertop materials:

Solid wood tops

Solid wood tops are a classic choice and can be found in a wide variety of styles. With their dark color and natural texture, they offer an elegant look that will stand the test of time. Solid wood tops have become a popular choice for kitchen countertops, and for good reason. They’re durable, easy to clean and maintain, and can be stained or painted in any color of your choosing. The natural beauty of solid wood also gives your kitchen a warm, inviting feel that you won’t achieve from other materials like granite, quartz, or marble.

Aside from its beauty, a solid wood top is also functional. It’s durable enough to handle hot pots and pans without warping or cracking over time. It’s easy to clean—just wipe it down with a damp cloth or sponge—and it won’t stain if you spill something on it (unlike marble). It’s a natural material so it will gain character over time as the wood ages gracefully!

 

Granite

Magnificent Transitional Kitchen

Granite has been around since the beginning of time, and it’s still going strong as one of the most popular kitchen countertop options out there today. Granite is a great choice because it’s available in a variety of colors and textures so you can find one that matches your style and budget perfectly!

Granite is a natural stone that is beautiful, durable, and easy to clean. It’s the perfect choice for any home and any kitchen. Granite is a natural product which makes it super durable—it will stand up to wear and tear better than other types of stone or man-made materials like tile or plastic. Plus, it doesn’t stain easily like some other materials do—which means less time spent cleaning up spills!

 

Quartz

Quartz countertops are durable and stain-resistant because they’re made with a clear coating. This allows them to resist scratches and stains from everyday use like your morning cup of coffee or a pasta sauce spill. When you combine their durability with their ability to be manufactured in any color imaginable, quartz countertops become an attractive option for homeowners who want to update their kitchens without breaking the bank.

The quartz countertop market has been growing steadily over the last few years as homeowners seek ways to add value to their homes without spending a fortune.

 

Porcelain

Porcelain countertops have been around for a while, but they have recently become more popular and are the latest trend in kitchens.

Porcelain is a synthetic material that is made to look like natural stone or marble, but it is much more durable than those materials. It can withstand high heat and moisture levels, which makes it ideal for kitchens where there are often spills and food preparation takes place.

Another benefit of porcelain is that it is available in many colors so homeowners can match their kitchen with the rest of their decor. There are also many types of porcelain available such as matte or polished finishes.

 

While each type has its own unique qualities, there are some commonalities among them all: durability (they won’t chip easily), maintenance requirements (fewer stains), ease of cleaning (porous surfaces should be sealed before use) cost effectiveness (many last decades). The key is to find the one that fits your style and needs. If you still have any doubts about choosing the right material for your home, just get in touch with us! For all your countertop needs, we proudly carry Caesarstone, Spectrum Quartz, MSI, Viatera, Silestone and Dekton by Cosentino.

When renovating your bathroom, there are many things to weigh, but one of the most important things is
your bathroom vanity. A bathroom vanity is where many people start their mornings and end their days.
When you’re looking for a new vanity, there are many factors to consider.

The first thing to think about is
the size of your bathroom. You want to make sure that your vanity will fit inside the space, but also that it
doesn’t take up too much room. When choosing a new vanity, it’s important to keep in mind whether or not you have any plumbing already installed in your bathroom.

The size of the vanity isn’t the only important thing to keep in mind, but also the type of vanity as well as the color and style. There are six different styles of vanities: pedestal, free-standing, floating, vessel, under-mounted sink and cabinet.

 

Pedestal Vanity

 

Pedestal vanities are one of the most popular styles of vanities because they take up limited space,
perfect for smaller bathrooms and powder rooms. A pedestal vanity won’t provide any storage space
within the vanity itself, but does allow for more square footage in a bathroom.

 

Free-standing Vanity

A free-standing vanity sits on legs and is usually placed in an open floor plan or large bathroom where it
can be viewed from all sides. This can be a great option if you have limited space and need extra
countertop space.

 

Floating Vanity

A floating vanity has no base at all—it sits directly on the floor. They’re easy to install and perfect if you
want your bathroom to look larger by keeping all of the items on top visible from all angles. It adds a more minimal look to your bathroom.

 

Under-mounted Vanity

An under-mounted vanity sits just below the surface level of your countertop so that only the base is
visible when installed correctly beneath it; this makes them ideal for those who want their storage space
hidden from view.

 

Vessel Vanity

Beautiful bathroom countertops from Dekton

A vessel vanity is designed to have the sink sitting on top of the counter instead of having an insert in the
vanity. Adding a vessel vanity to your bathroom can add a unique trait to your bathroom. It also allows for more countertop space as opposed to an undermount sink.

 

Cabinet Vanity

A cabinet vanity is a sink that sits inside of a cabinet. They’re usually made from wood or metal and can
be used to create an entire bathroom storage space. They can be used to create a custom storage space
in your bathroom or as an additional sink. They’re popular among homeowners who want to maximize the amount of space they have.

 

What is the best material to use for a bathroom vanity?

Bathroom vanities are made of different materials. The most common materials are wood, stone, and
metal. Each has its own benefits and drawbacks. Granite is the best material to use as a bathroom vanity
countertop. They add an elegant and timeless look to any bathroom and add more value to your home.
Quartz countertops come in a close second and have a lot more designs to choose from over the granite,
which is a natural stone.

 

What is the most popular bathroom vanity size?

Modern cabinet stlye

The most popular vanity size is 36 inches wide, 24 inches deep and 48 inches high. Double vanities
usually measure between 60 inches and 72 inches wide.

 

What are the most popular bathroom vanity colors?

The most popular bathroom vanity colors are white, gray, and wood. White vanities are a timeless classic
and allow for a creative pop of color with decor, the possibilities of vanity and countertop combinations
are endless! Gray bathroom vanities are also popular, since the color is neutral, it can go with my different
color schemes and styles. Although wood may not be a color, wooden vanities have become a trend.
With a natural finish, they can be combined with different colors to add a cozy finish to a plain bathroom.

 

What is the most popular bathroom vanity style?

Bathroom vanities come in a variety of styles, including traditional, modern and rustic. Traditional vanities
have elegant lines and classic details. They often feature drawers or cabinets and can be made of wood
or stone materials like marble, granite and limestone. Modern vanities are sleek with clean lines that give
your space a contemporary feel. They’re often constructed from metal or acrylic materials, which makes
them easy to maintain but also light enough to move around as needed.

Why You Should Remodel Your Kitchen in a European Style

European Kitchens

European kitchen designs are beautiful if you are thinking of remodeling your home.  Europe’s kitchens have evolved into modern, sleek and seamless spaces that are designed for open floor layouts and have cabinet styles that have frameless cabinets with European kitchens or German kitchens.

These refined, polished cabinets look amazing when contrasted with the dark tones of the countertops. German cabinets have an engineered modular design that gives them durability, they also come in an influx of shades and colors to choose from.

The style of European kitchen design is different from traditional American-style kitchens and would look wonderful in most any modern space! Most homes have a large kitchen, so remodeling it to a European style can add value to your home by giving it an update with a timeless look.

We work with vendors like Hardware Resources that provide amazing organizers for all your bathroom and kitchen dreams.

 

The Benefits of a European Kitchen

European Kitchens

Europeans are famous for their exquisite kitchens and interiors, but if you think that this style of design is too elegant or expensive for your home, you’re missing out on the many benefits of European kitchens. Let’s start by examining the cabinets.

European kitchen cabinet doors typically have a smooth, full-overlay design. This shows that the cabinet frame is hidden behind the overlay door, where it is unseen. To achieve a modern, sleek appearance, hinges are also concealed from view on the inside of the cabinet. For greater functionality, soft-close hinges are common in European kitchens.

Most European kitchens will use simple metal designs or sleek, unobtrusive hardware on the exterior of the cabinetry. Less is more in terms of design. Crown moulding, carvings, and raised panel door designs are examples of excessive ornamentation that is avoided in European kitchens.

Instead, the relatively flat and smooth surfaces of European kitchen cabinets might give the impression that a smaller kitchen is larger. This all leads to the largest benefit, which is achieving an ultra-sophisticated image.

The quality of German cabinets is unlike any other, since German cabinets are custom engineered, they already come pre-assembled and customized for each kitchen. They are built with thick cross panels and a thin flex back that makes their engineering stand out against English competitors. German cabinets are larger and sleeker than American or traditional cabinets, which provides more space for storage.

LVP flooring is taking America by storm right now, and it’s easy to see why: because of its price point, great look, and great warranty.

LVP stands for “Luxury Vinyl Plank,” but it’s so much more than that. It’s an affordable, beautiful flooring option that lets you create a look like you’d get with hardwood floors at a fraction of the price.

With a price point that won’t break the bank, a look that will never go out of style, and a warranty that will keep you covered for years to come, LVP flooring is the perfect choice for anyone who wants quality home goods at a great price.

Luxury vinyl is a practical alternative to tile and hardwood flooring. The resemblance between the two gets better by the day and vinyl’s advantages have had the material trending as of late, so much so that it’s becoming more common than the real thing! Let’s dive into all that tile, hardwood and luxury vinyl have to offer to see what’s best for you.

Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood flooring has always and continues to be a hot commodity in all types of homes. It’s durable, easy to clean, and almost always changes your space for the better. Neighbors and potential buyers think so too; as it increases real estate value relative to how much you put into it.  Hardwood is, however, the most expensive option on this list. Exotic wood comes at a price and installation is required. If your budget is lenient and you’re the type that prefers to designate to one big change as opposed to several minor changes, consider hardwoods.

Tile Flooring

For a long time, tile was designated for bathrooms and patios, only managing to slip into the house for very eclectic styles or fads that didn’t stand the test of time. This era is over, tile is booming in popularity and quickly becoming a go-to option for any flooring needs. Tile can meet your wildest design expectations and turn your floors into murals. Because of this it is more versatile than hardwood and capable of capturing the intended style of a space- or establishing it. It’s also easy to clean, and more than durable for most spaces. Sounds too good to be true? Unfortunately, even a no-brainer like this has its downsides. Tile is rigid and can be unforgiving on the feet, it’s cold, and maintaining grout lines can be a hassle. There are options to work around these negatives, such as heated floors and hiring a professional to install tile without grout lines.

LVP and LVT Flooring

Vinyl has made strides in its advancements recently and shouldn’t even be considered the same as advertised in the past. No longer the thin sheets of synthetic plastic that fade horribly over time, it now comes as a plank with clear dimension and character. Luxury vinyl, a name much more suited to the revitalized material, is by far the cheapest option you’ll find in this list. It’s also more durable than its counterparties and has so many options that you’re more likely to find specifically what you’re looking for- be it plank size, color, shape, pattern, anything. Vinyl plank uses an easy tongue and groove system that many DIYers find very easy to install and see installers as an added expense more than a necessity.

Hottest Flooring Trends in 2022

Knowing what you know now, let’s dive into specifics and get a taste of the options at your fingertips.

Oak Hardwoods Flooring

Oak is the pinnacle of the word classic. Its lighter color shows off rings and knots, signifying the years that went behind creating your brand-new floor. Plank size and color is oak’s advantage; tinkering with these two variables gives your floors any look you want: from each plank handcrafted and different than the last forming a beautiful mosaic everywhere in your home, to overlapping planks with the same finish giving the appearance of just a handful of boards that stretch in either direction as far as the eye can see.

Stone Visual Tile Flooring

LVP Flooring

Tile is synonymous with brick in that it’s normally an outside material being used as indoor flooring. Where tile beats brick is aesthetic; stone tile can be marbled, cobbled, discolored, sleek- the list goes on forever. It’s durable, stylish and affordable, so you can create a luxury look without paying an arm and a leg. Ceramic or porcelain tiles are great for kitchens, bathrooms or any room of the house where you want to add beauty with longevity.

Faux- Maple LVP Flooring

LVP Flooring

Maple vinyl is a top seller in flooring right now, and for good reason. LVP has become a scary accurate doppelganger for wood and in some instances, LVP looks more like maple than maple does! It captures every aspect from the same grain patterns to the way light reflects. Coming in nominally cheaper than the real thing as well as having its own underlayment and a rigid core, this LVP may continue its hot streak and remain superior to maple hardwood.  

Wool Carpet Flooring

LVP Flooring

Everyone wants their first step out of bed-or out of the couch movie marathon- to be like stepping onto a cloud. A simple luxury we take for granted; carpet is the foots best friend in the flooring world. Wool carpeting is threaded in a grid-like pattern that not only gives it rigid durability, but also a classy look. This classiness puts the carpet into a very comfortable position, not needing to be banished to low traffic basements or bedrooms, you can have this flooring in a ballroom, and it wouldn’t look out of place. The fibers have a coating that makes the material resistant to spills and very easy to clean.

Whether your needs call for luxurious hardwood throughout your home or practical carpeting to replace a bedroom, InDesign Kitchen and Bath Remodeling has options from all over the world and a dedicated team of designers to figure out what exactly will turn your house into your home.

The basement of your home can be the most active part of your home- whether you have children, a home office, or just a space to unwind, your space needs to endure its occupancy. This is the area where durable materials earn their salt and finding the right products with the right style is often easier said than done. We’re here to help- here’s our list of best basement trends for 2022.

Durability By Any Means

Flooring

BASEMENT TRENDS

The flooring you choose for your basement is a decision that needs diligent research. The material that’s right for you is out there, but there’s variables that should be addressed before you start your search: will pets be in the basement? Will there be a lot of foot traffic? What style are you looking for? These are just a few questions to take into consideration, but we’ll keep our focus here.

Vinyl Flooring

BASEMENT TRENDS

Vinyl  has become the staple of affordable, dependable flooring. Most commercial spaces that have been renovated in the last 10 years likely incorporated vinyl flooring for its remarkable ability to endure foot traffic day after day. Vinyl is also scratch resistant, water resistant, and of course, cheap. The floorings’ popularity has gone parabolic in recent years, and with this popularity comes options that will work with anyone’s style. Not to be confused with laminate, vinyl uses a very straightforward tongue-and-groove system that makes it easy to remove in the event of a basement flood or if you decide on another option down the road. Check out our new showroom to see all our vinyl styles that fit your basement needs.

Tile Flooring

BASEMENT TRENDS

Tile flooring is a step above vinyl aesthetically with all the same functionalities. Porcelain is the main form tile comes in and is so durable that it’s the leading material used for outdoor gathering spaces. If it can weather tough storms, you’ll have no worries with drops, children or pets. The beauty of using tile in your basement is that it matures the space it’s in; it separates the room from the rest of the house in the best way and makes those who witness it feel like they’ve stumbled upon buried treasure.

Hardwood Flooring

BASEMENT TRENDS

Hardwood flooring is a timeless classic and is well known to be the most sought after flooring type for any style of home. Hardwood is a forgiving material to the constantly changing trends; with the help of some elbow grease, you can stain your hardwoods any color of your choosing and strip the color off if you change your mind down the road. Between this, countless types of lacquers, plank types and finishes, hardwood is perfect for those who have found their forever home.

Basement Features Trending Now

Wet Bar

BASEMENT TRENDS

If you’re tired of seeing your basement as a space lacking character, raise your glass to the idea of a wet bar. Bar carts are beautiful but they’re tailored to service smaller rooms like offices, whereas wet bars can capture the character and size of any basement perfectly. Wet bars at their core are open concept with beautiful finishes; two details that fit any look, color and vibe.

Fireplace

BASEMENT TRENDS

There’s a common saying that there’s a big difference between a house and a home, and the same goes for your basement. Adding a fireplace feature to your basement gives it the independence it needs as a space to become not just another room in your house, but a retreat you’ll want to spend most of your time in. Nothing’s more frustrating than having a large room without a nucleus. Furniture doesn’t flow the way you like and everything looks disorganized; a fireplace is perfect for the odd duck basements that need a focal centerpiece to give coordination to all your accessories. 

Basement Finishes Trending now

Built-ins

BASEMENT TRENDS

Built-in cabinetry is an effective solution for the cut and dry boring basements. It gives foundation to put molding, accent colors, additional décor, anything the space is currently lacking. It’s also, believe it or not, storage! But don’t think of this cabinetry as just extra space to hide away odds and ends, think of it the same as designing your kitchen. A good kitchen is never too large, but Built-ins can also serve a dual purpose as seating if your basement starts looking tight. However, you decide to embrace the idea, there’s ample opportunity to get creative.

Sliding Glass Doors

BASEMENT TRENDS

If your basement is accessible from outside, a sliding glass door can combine your home with nature seamlessly at your will. Glass doors make your basement feel twice as big and brings in all the natural light you could ask for, as well as all the colors of nature that surround your backyard. While inadvertent, glass doors can be the centerpiece of your basement, or accentuate the room even more so if you’ve already found your eye- catcher for the space. However, you decide to style your space, a glass door attracts your eye no matter what else fills the room.

With help from InDesign Kitchen & Bath, you can transform your basement into a comfortable, usable space. Our designers are ready to meet with you to discuss your dream basement! We work in Alpharetta, Johns Creek,  Suwanee, Milton, Roswell and the surrounding areas. Schedule your free design consultation to design your dream basement today!

Vivacious Green Kitchen

The 60’s are back and midcentury has never been so hot. Colorfully potent kitchens are great when they’re in style, and a laughing stock when it’s out. Green has stood the test of time and is quickly becoming a color you don’t want to miss out on. The best part about green kitchens is that they can be used with any style you’re going for. If you’re wanting a modern or contemporary look, green kitchen cabinets will complete your home . For more traditional kitchens, green will give the space an elegant look without being too flashy or out of place.

If you love this color and are looking for ways to incorporate it into your kitchen, here are some tips for making your space look dazzling with green:

Sage Green Kitchen Cabinets

Choosing sage green kitchen cabinets will give your space a modern style that will last for years to come.

Choose a light or medium shade of sage green when choosing your cabinets so that they don’t overwhelm other elements in the room such as lighter walls or countertops. You can also choose darker shades if you want a more upscale look, but keep in mind that darker shades may be harder to match with other elements in your kitchen like flooring or countertops.

Light Sage Green Kitchen Walls

You can achieve an elegant look by painting your walls using a light shade of sage green paint. When choosing paint colors for walls, keep in mind that lighter shades tend to make spaces appear larger than darker ones do. Pair this with white cabinets or molding and you’ll have a Victorian look that can express itself.

Sage Green Kitchen Island

The island is a great place to get creative. It not only helps divide the kitchen from other rooms in your home but it also breaks up the look of the room itself. For those with white kitchens, a green island can give you and your guests something quite literally in the way to look at when you first walk in to break up all the white and not make the room seem like such a blank canvas.

Vivid Black

The color ‘black’ and ‘aesthetic’ are indistinguishable. Its ability to absorb light makes it the perfect color to detail your kitchen with or subtly yet boldly outline what’s already eye-popping.

Black kitchen cabinets

Black kitchen cabinets are a physical embodiment of wanting to make a statement that speaks for the entire house. They are however not as flexible with the varying kitchen styles. Know that choosing black cabinets means you’ll have to build the style of the room around them; use gentle colors to surround the cabinets and make sure there’s ample light. This shouldn’t scare you away if you’re interested, using materials that agree with black like wood or quartz create an electrifying environment in the heart of your home that you won’t want to leave.

Black Kitchen Trim

Using black trim couldn’t be more night and day opposite of using black cabinetry. In fact, you’ll have a hard time finding any kitchen style that doesn’t incorporate black in some way. Trim is the fine print of your kitchen, it’s the dotting of the i‘s, the crossing of the T’s. It gives flavor and dimension to any space or style. This is something to consider for those that already have their dream kitchen picked but need one last intricacy to make it whole.

Black Kitchen Light Fixtures

Black fixtures offer a mysterious element to your kitchen, and the mystery lies in the contradiction. It spreads light to your entire room, but fails to capture itself. It becomes a bit of an optical illusion, appearing ever so slightly larger than how you would expect it to, making you shift your focus to acknowledge it with the rest of the room and recognize the perfect parallel of contrast that it provides.

Bathroom design is one of the most important decisions you will ever make in your home as it’s where you begin and end each day. There are many trends in bathroom designs that are emerging with new styles and materials. The trends are likely to change every year but here’s an overview of what will be some of the top bathroom design trends in 2022.

 

Bathroom Color Trend

Beautiful Master Bath

Bathroom color trends are constantly changing. There are many ways to go when it comes to choosing the right hues for you. The first thing you should consider is whether you want your bathroom to be neutral, warm, or cool in color tone.

  • Neutral colors can be described as either cool (grey) or warm (beige) and have a grayish hue. You’re most likely going to find these in bathrooms with tile flooring and white walls—the perfect combination for any type of decorating style. Hello Sherwin Williams Agreeable Grey! Feeling a little daring?! Try Sherwin Williams Caviar for a sophisticated, modern vibe. Most people would shy away from such dark colors because it could be viewed as gloomy and morbid, but this color trend is all the rage when toned down with a contrasting color such as white and grey.
  • Warm colors on the other hand tend to be beige and tan or more vibrant hues like reds and oranges which can be a bit bolder and off-putting for a serene space like a bathroom. If you want an inviting and cozy atmosphere in the bold paint family, consider Sherwin Williams Urban Bronze!
  • Cool colors such as blues or greens can also work well with each other and provide the tranquil atmosphere you’re seeking. You can opt for the soft pastel blue and green hues for a relaxing space or the bold, dramatic jewel tones such as navy blue or emerald green for a luxurious, rich effect. The bathroom is a great space to experiment with colors, patterns, and textures so whichever trend you prefer, the sky is the limit!
 

Bathroom Tile Trends

Bathroom tile trends are changing and evolving to meet the needs of homeowners. Tile provides a more powerful punch than paint when looking to simply update a space. It also can help infuse texture, pattern, and color into a room as well. Read further for tiles cooler than your average subway tile backsplash in 2022.

  • Wood-look tiles: It’s tile that looks like wood with the illusion of wood grain for texture but they’re ceramic or porcelain. They come in many different colors and styles and gives a minimalistic look with the clean lines.
  • Stacked stone tiles: Another trend is stacked stone which provides ample texture and makes for great visual impact. Stacked Stone are available in an array of neutral stone colors and continues to be one of the most sought-after materials for bathroom walls where fireplaces are present or on statement walls. It ages beautifully over time and adds warmth and character to any space.
  • Statement Walls: With the variety of beautiful tile everywhere, why not showcase your favorite decorative tile on a feature wall for everyone to drool over. Behind a soaking freestanding tub, in a shower or the vanity wall are all great places to showcase statement tile walls.
  • Pebble tiles: These natural pebbles come in various shapes and are composed mainly of pebbles and stones which provides a natural ambiance in a bathroom design. The most common place for pebble stones to be installed or in shower floors and niches as a contrast to a complementary larger tile. They can add texture and interest wherever you place them, and the applications are limitless with this durable material.
 

Mixed Materials

With the trend toward using natural mixed materials in the bathroom, it’s important to balance them with spa-like materials to achieve a sophisticated look. Marble, wood, stone, and porcelain that mimics marble can all be used in your bathroom design! Spa-like materials like light cool colors, natural material, greenery, and mirrors can also be incorporated for an airy feel that will make the space appear larger and serene.

  • Use different materials and styles to create a sense of space in your bathroom design—different materials and styles can be used to create a sense of space. For example, use smooth surfaces (like marble) in one area and textured ones (like concrete) in another. Or use a more traditional material, like wood or stone, with modern shapes and colors.
  • Using the same material or two complementing materials throughout a space can create a sense of warmth, modern appeal, and luxury throughout the entire room. For example, you could have hardwood floors with ceramic tiles on the floor and walls that complement each other’s color palette or look completely contrasting but still work together seamlessly for an inviting atmosphere perfect for relaxing after work!
 

Freestanding Tubs and Wet Rooms

Freestanding tubs and wet rooms are a great option for larger bathrooms. If you’re looking to make the most of a large space, this concept will help you achieve that goal. This option also has the added benefit of creating a tranquil feel to your bathroom design.

A freestanding tub usually floats in front of a statement wall for high visual appeal, a fireplace, or in front of a picturesque window. A freestanding tub gives homeowners more flexibility about where they place them, which makes them ideal for getting creative with large or tight spaces. Do you have a lot of space to spare and want to make a major impact and wonderful bathing experience? Place the tub within a shower behind a frameless glass or curb less shower to create a wet room. A wet room is a bathroom that typically has no enclosure separating the shower or tub from the rest of the bathroom.

This design trend has been popular for many years now as they provide excellent ventilation, are much easier to clean, allow more natural lighting and handicap accessible and friendly if applicable. In addition to this, they also provide you with the luxury feel that many buyers look for in a new home.

 

Sophisticated Showerheads

If you want to step up your bathroom in 2022, we recommend upgrading your showerhead. A good handheld showerhead or rain showerhead can make all the difference between a boring shower and an amazing experience.

The handheld showerhead is perfect if you need to clean hard-to-reach areas. If you want something more exciting than a traditional hand-held function, consider adding a massage function to it along with other customizable settings!

Rainfall showerheads are becoming increasingly popular because they create an atmosphere that mimics being outside in nature — perfect for those who love being outdoors but still want a relaxing experience at home! A rain showerhead, also known as a rainfall or waterfall showerhead is ceiling or wall mounted that sprays water vertically. It has light water pressure to mimic the feel of rinsing in the rain, so even on your most hectic mornings, you can enjoy a serene shower before you start your day.

Twin showerheads offers benefits those other showerheads can’t provide. These are great for increasing adding style and functionality. They feature integrated LED lights that change colors with water temperature. You can also choose models that have massage settings and pause features. Water conservation is a plus as well!

 

Freestanding Basins

Freestanding basins are a great way for you to make a statement about your bathroom. They can be used as standalone pieces which makes them a versatile addition to any bathroom. Freestanding basins are available in many different materials, are stylish yet practical, stain resistant and lightweight. The most popular choice is stone which is especially durable and hard-wearing.

 

Integrated Technology

The smart bathroom design is the future of high-end home technology. In 2022, integrated technologies will be a key feature of homes around the world. A smart bathroom can connect with your smart devices and provide you with full control and customization to your needs for a personalized bathroom experience. Here are a few popular features in new bathroom designs.

Smart toilet: The toilet seat that cleans itself might seem like a luxury, but it’s more commonly seen today than you’d think. With a sensor that detects whether someone is sitting on it and cleans itself accordingly, this toilet has become a common fixture in many homes. Don’t forget about the seat warmers, touch free lids, LED lighting, and remote controls for additional bells and whistles!

Smart faucets: Your bathroom sink doesn’t have to be boring anymore! In 2022, you’ll be able to enjoy several benefits from your new smart faucet—including water saving functions, completely touch-free, hygienic, and sleek as it can be. A simple upgrade to your life!

Smart mirror: It seems like every year we’re seeing more interactive mirrors with built-in speakers and microphones for handsfree calls or video conferencing. The ability for homeowners to use their mirror as an intercom system while taking care of business or to tell time, provide weather and traffic details and appointments has been popular since its introduction over ten years ago; it’s only natural that we’d see this trend continue into next decade as well!

There are many different kitchen accessories and gadgets that need to be stored and organized, from utensils and pots to dinnerware and spices. It’s no wonder that most people find their kitchens a disorganized mess, but it doesn’t have to be that way! With just a little bit of effort and pre-planning, you can keep your kitchen storage cabinets neat and tidy without the hassle of wondering where an item was stored last. Here’s a few organizational tips that take the work out of tidying up and functions efficiently.

Purge

Before you begin organizing, it’s important to make sure that your space has efficient kitchen storage space with creative arranging. If you don’t have enough room, it may be time to upgrade your kitchen storage cabinets or remove some of the things you’re keeping in them. Begin, by removing all the contents from the cabinetry and see what you have to work with. Cleaning up your kitchen first is vital for this process, as it will allow you to see what you use and what could be removed from the space.

Tip!! This is the perfect time to purge because it’ll save you time on the backhand. Say farewell to the Tupperware bowl with no lid.

Divide up the Contents

Once these items are removed, divide your kitchen into zones (cooking, dry/wet goods, snacks) and assess where items should be located. Organize those that remain by type and frequency of use: glasses should go in one cabinet; plates in another; silverware in another—and so on. For example, consider storing cooking utensils and spices adjacent to the stove for efficient use when preparing meals. You could even dedicate an entire drawer to your coffee needs. Stock it with k-cups, sugar, creamer, stirrers, and other coffee items. Store the coffee machine above it atop the counter and voila! A coffee station has been created. Consider placing the most frequently used items on the bottom shelves where they’re easily accessible. Place holiday decorative dishware up higher in the cabinetry as you’ll utilize it less.

After assessing where items should be placed in kitchen cabinets for maximum efficiency, get drawer dividers, baskets and containers and start to group items alike together. For small item organization such as utensils, consider using drawer dividers where they’ll be most effective at keeping things tidy without taking up too much space. For spices, a narrow spice rack drawer can be added near the stove for efficiency.

Kitchen containers are great for pantry storage because they take up less space and provide an overall clean aesthetic therefore allowing for more room for other things. They also make it easy to see what’s inside each individual storage container. Clear plastic bins are great because they are stackable which allows them to take up less space than baskets would otherwise require; plus, they’re easier to clean. The transparency will make it a lot easier to see what you have in stock and show you what needs to be replenished the next time you’re grocery shopping

Get Creative with Kitchen Storage

A small kitchen has its challenges when you’re trying to find a place for everything but there are a few creative kitchen storage ideas to make the most of your space when organizing.

One easy way to increase your cabinet space is to install wire racks. They come in different heights, widths, and styles, so you can find the perfect ones for your kitchen, and they’ll act as shelves, too, so you can store more cups and plates together. Use the space underneath your kitchen storage cabinets. You can store items like baking sheets and cutting boards to be accessible during meal prep or cleaning up afterward!

Kitchen missing an island? Invest in a wheeled kitchen storage cart to accommodate the overflow of kitchen items. Plus, it could be used for meal prep such as cutting vegetables and then tucked away against the side of your fridge when not in use.

Not enough cabinetry?! One solution to maximizing storage is installing floating shelves. Floating shelves are a great place to show off delicate glassware, plate ware, cookbooks, and accessories. Plus, you can arrange them any way you want, which makes them an excellent solution for tiny kitchens. Take advantage of vertical space by adding a hanging pot rack to help store all those pans sitting on the stove or taking up space in your cabinets. Another option is to Add a mixer lift shelf stand to your kitchen cabinet and let KraftMaid® do the heavy lifting for you. The mixer pull-up shelf stand has an easy lift to access heavy kitchen appliances like mixers, food processors and blenders. The glide-in, soft-close operation is ideal for storage with no hassle. Keep your heavy kitchen appliances right at your fingertips when you need them and store them away safely when you don’t.

Additional crafty ways to store and organize kitchen appliances such as blenders, toasters or mixers away or in appliance garages. It keeps the kitchen design polished and behind closed doors which reduces counter clutter.

Kitchen containers, storage racks, and storage carts come in all shapes and sizes so there’s many options that could fit perfectly into your space. Follow these easy steps to organize your kitchen cabinets and enjoy the benefits every day!
