Kitchens are the heart of the home and they are especially a big deal in a Southern home. Whenever people gather at home whether big or small there is always food involved in the kitchen. Southern Living magazine featured the 2022 Living Impressions™ Collection by Formica Group. In the article, they featured three different patterns for a kitchen’s surface countertops and backsplashes.
The sugar glass pattern is perfect for those who love old and new. The elements are of new and old design and will fit in almost any kitchen’s decor. Celebrity designers have dubbed this look as “Grandmillennial” or “granny chic.” The sugar glass pattern is described as a vintage-modern fusion. The company creates the look by scanning glass chips, milk, and sugar to create an exciting new tactile multidimensional pattern. The sugar glass backsplash is a perfect fit for any color cabinetry.
This look doesn’t mean an old rickety cabin in the woods. After the pandemic hit, bringing the outdoors in has become an even more popular trend. This look can be completed using natural materials and earthy hues. A great example is to use reclaimed wood on a kitchen island. Their Walnut Butcherblock is a perfect pattern to use for this look. The farmhouse design has been a popular trend for years and will stay popular this year.
Marble is a popular trend that can give your kitchen a sleek look. The new Manhattan Marble and the classic Mediterranean Marble pattern are perfect for this. They “offer a stunning interplay of white and light. Marbled Gray gives an “abstract and industrial” look and Slate Noir is described as a “little black dress” pattern.
Many of us have spent more time than usual in our homes and might be ready for a new look. Southern Living suggests looking at the 2022 Living Impressions™ Collection from Formica and ordering a free sample at www.formica.com/livingimpressions.
