Are you thinking of updating your kitchen in the new year? Here are 4 of the best worktop trends for 2022 that will start your year off with a bang!
Breccia is the new Agate! That’s right – the bold and bright colourful trend of 2021 is here to stay. If you are looking for an affordable yet luxurious worktop, Breccia-inspired designs are the perfect material for you. Although Agate has been the ‘go to’ surface to create a vibrant and lavish statement, it is seriously costly. If you didn’t want to foot the cost of Agate worktops, but want to bring colour to your kitchen for 2022, Breccia is the next best thing!
Naturally formed, Breccia is made up of sharp-angled fragments that lie within a fine-grained mix. What’s more, Silkstone Quartz has replicated the unique beauty of this natural stone to create a strong and durable material that is ideal for kitchen worktops. Shown here is Breccia Emerald, named after its rich turquoise crystals that flaunt against the earthy terrain. Create a breathtaking impact with Breccia-inspired worktops by pairing this material with neutral colours and simple textures, and let this material do all the work for you!
We can picture Breccia Emerald looking incredible on a restaurant bar!
Another worktop trend incoming for 2022 is the integration of textured materials. Last year saw a rise in demand for sense-stimulating surfaces like stone, concrete, and metal that add an extra dimension to kitchen designs.
Even imitations of natural materials don’t just look the part, but feel it too! Below is Atlas Plan’s Kone Grey paired with Rosso Levanto Marble at the Onesta showroom in London. The unique contrast of the hammered finish Porcelain against the ribbed Marble creates a breathtaking impact in this space.
So, if you want to be on-trend in 2022, think about selecting a material for your worktop that feels as good as it looks!
We love this contrast of Kone Grey and Rosso Levanto Marble used here to create a distinct and rich design.
Marble worktops are, of course, consistently on-trend year after year. This one-of-a-kind material is a timeless addition to any interior that refuses to go out of style. In fact, recent years have seen many brands realise Marble’s undeniable popularity and have invested in materials that replicate the natural characteristics of the stone.
Our own brand of Silkstone Quartz features a wide range of authentic replicas of the sought-after stone, varying from light to dark designs. Below is the popular Montreal, which features a pencil-thin vein across a milky white surface. Not only are the designs incredibly beautiful, but Silkstone Quartz also provides plenty of practical benefits too.
We think this is a very clever use of Montreal Silkstone Quartz integrated as worktops, backsplash, and shelving.
Lastly, but probably the most important worktop trend for 2022 will be sustainable design. Recent years have shown us the importance of making environmentally conscious decisions in every element of our lives, and this shouldn’t end at our interiors.
Now, there are more eco-friendly possibilities than ever before for your worktops. You can buy from a brand with sustainable manufacturing processes, rework old material into another project, and even recycle old worktops. A leading brand that focuses on sustainability is Atlas Plan. They use a zero-waste manufacturing process, and the material consists of up to 40% pre-consumer recycled materials and 100% responsibly sourced materials. What’s more, is The Surface Collection is the exlusive UK-wide supplier of this eco-conscious stoneware, making it super accessible to our local customers.
Bring sustainable design into 2022 and think of it as less than a trend but more of a must-have!
We love how Calacatta Borghini by Atlas Plan brings warmth into this space.
