2022 Kitchen Design Trends: Part 2

Back at the beginning of the year, we wrote a blog on this year’s top kitchen design trends. Although many of those trends still hold true today, there are other trends that have come out from the cracks as we have progressed through 2022. 

2022 has been a crazy year financially. Gas prices have increased drastically, and home prices have soared. Although home values have increased due to inflation, experts are saying that kitchen renovations are the best home projects that will yield the highest return on investment in 2022. And for the most part, these upgrades and improvements are affordable!

At GMS Werks, we specialize in natural stone slabs and surfaces. From granite countertops to marble flooring and even tile backsplashes, you can count on our team to provide quality, professional work. Below, we dig into some of the newest kitchen design trends homeowners are choosing this year. 

Double islands

One of the biggest trends that have emerged this year has been double kitchen islands. This is one of the stylish trends for the modern kitchen, and who doesn’t love more countertop space?! A double island can give you more room to make dinner or act as a dinner table!

Flooring upgrades

Another kitchen design trend has been upgrading the kitchen floors! Stone flooring is becoming more and more popular in home kitchens, and for many great reasons as well! They are durable, easy to clean and maintain, and look absolutely stunning! And this year, we are noticing bigger and bolder natural stone kitchen floors than ever before!

Open layouts

In the sense of design of the entire room, more and more homeowners are opting to open  up their kitchens. Although design experts see a lot of enclosed spaces, they say the designs within those spaces appear to be more open. Thinking of opening up your kitchen design? Here are some ideas to give you some inspiration!

Natural materials

This is a trend that experts were predicting at the beginning of the year that is still very popular to this point. Natural materials are in! Concrete and other materials were a top choice for a while, and they may continue to stay popular, but more and more homeowners are choosing to add natural stone to their kitchen designs. Natural stone countertops are beautiful and sustainable and come in a variety of colors and designs. Luckily, we are a natural stone slabs company and are ready to help whoever decides to hop on this trend! 

Outdoor kitchens
