What We Know About Remodeling Trends in 2022 | Nature Inspired Kitchens and Baths
Portland homeowners are moving away from the all-white or all-gray kitchens and bathrooms. Nature-inspired colors, shapes, and textures are bringing the outdoors in creating tranquility in the home. We’re seeing show-stopping grained wood cabinetry paired with soft-colored walls and tile in greens, blues, and browns. Several window banks stacked on countertops bring in soft natural light. Stovetops and range hoods are flanked by live edge floating shelves keeping countertop space clutter-free. This appeals to the minimalist as well as affording ample workspace.
Durable and maintenance-free quartz countertops remain the top choice due to their nonporous surface that doesn’t need to be sealed like natural stone. Heat, stain, and scratch-resistant quartz are available in a wide range of colors with some styles that mimic the grain movement of granite.
In the bathroom, Portland-area customers are seeking a spa-like space to relax and refresh in. Again, gorgeous grains pop on cabinetry while colors of greens, grays, and browns fill walls and floors. Remote-controlled skylights allow big splashes of natural light, while touchless faucets make the space hygienic. A large motive in bath improvement is universal design. Universal design addresses aging or disabled family members and serves young families alike. Barrier-free showers, aka curbless showers with a 36” minimum opening, easy turn faucet levers, and sliding shower heads on grab bars are excellent upgrades and have become mainstream.
