Concrete Counter Trends for 2022

Countertop trends vary over time, and if you’re renovating an old kitchen, you’ll want to make design decisions that will improve the aesthetic of the space and keep it looking good for years to come.

There are a slew of interesting new trends to keep an eye on. Here are a few counter trends for 2022 that will make your kitchen a contemporary marvel.

  • Natural Materials are the first trend to emerge

After being stuck at home for the better part of two years, most modern homeowners are seeking the soothing appeal of natural stone. Concrete and steel were trendy for a hot minute — and they may continue to show up in industrial lofts — but after being stuck at home for the better part of two years, most modern homeowners are seeking the soothing appeal of natural stone. Marble, granite, and even manufactured quartz that looks like genuine stone will continue to be fashionable well beyond 2022.

  • Bold Marble is the second trend.

If you’re looking for a dramatic, statement-making countertop material, granite is a great choice, and there are many of beautiful alternatives to choose from. Bold marble patterns, on the other hand, are expected to take over in the following year.

While granite has prevailed for the previous few decades, marble has a gentle, relaxing appearance that pandemic-affected homes find appealing after months of being trapped at home and dealing with tremendous stress. Still, when you pick a dynamic marble kind, you may have the best of both worlds.

This popular style has a neutral white and grey color scheme that complements any kitchen decor. Heavy veining, as seen in this modern black-and-white kitchen, may draw a lot of attention.

With its ebony backdrop and lightning-like slashes of white, black Marquina marble is as stunning, and the effect may also be found in quartz. In this transitional, U-shaped kitchen, consider alternatives like the Eternal Marquina Silestone.

  • Honed Finished Surfaces

You’re not alone if you can’t decide between the high shine of polished stone and the casual, contemporary charm of textured, leathered countertop surfaces. Fortunately, honed finishes provide a good medium between light roughness and reduced lustre.

  • Matching Countertops and Backsplashes

Don’t bother attempting to match your tile to your marble or granite (not to mention the hassle of cleaning food splatter from grout lines). Extending your natural stone countertop up the wall is a popular design for 2022.

Taking your slab vertically helps you to make the patterns you love more apparent and powerful in your kitchen, especially if you cut the slab such that the design flows perfectly from the countertop to the wall.

  • ·        Waterfall Countertops

Natural stone countertops are more than just a nice addition to your kitchen; they can also serve as a design focal point. Perhaps this is why, in recent years, extending your slab up the wall or down to the floor has become so fashionable.


With a bold, modern kitchen, you may include numerous trends. The Bianco Lasa marble on the waterfall island not only looks great with both blonde and dark wood cabinets, but it’s also a great example of the strong marble patterns that are becoming more fashionable in 2022.


  • Green Color Schemes

Many homeowners like to use modest decorations like little appliances or rugs to give color to their kitchen in small doses. Others go a step further by painting cabinets in fashionable colors. It’s possible that the backsplash will be painted in a striking hue. Then there are the daring designers who use bold countertop surfaces to create a statement.

Green colors gained popularity in interior design in 2021, and this color trend is expected to continue in 2022. The pale green and white rivulets of Gaya quartzite, which seem like moving seas above the white cabinets in this exquisite, open-concept kitchen, where it dominates two islands, are a subtle, relaxing addition to your kitchen.

For a bolder, more saturated statement piece, use Verde Vecchio granite. For a stunning look, pair it with warm, orange, mid-tone wood cabinets, embracing another new design trend — contrasting colors.

Green marble variations may have a similar appeal, as seen in this quirky New York kitchen, which was created to seem like a throwback soda store.
