Design and Culture: Interior Design Trends 2022


Painted cabinetry (especially white cabinetry with matte black hardware) and Carrara marble – or a quartz that has that soft movement of Carrara with some soft neutrals – is the hottest trend right now and we love this look!

Matte black, also known as flat back hardware has become increasingly popular for faucets, sinks, and cabinetry hardware. You may not know this but besides Home Depot, Lowes and Ace Hardware, Granite Plus is a local resource for hardware. We do not stock hardware, but most hardware is available in less than 72 hrs. We are your local dealer for Hardware Resources and Tob Knobs and you can contact our showroom or just stop by, and we can get it ordered for you. Some of our favorite pulls from Hardware Resources are the Key West, Sutton, and Hayworth pulls, and from Top Knobs, the Ascendra and Brixton pull are also perfect for our coastal homes. These are just a couple of our favorites but there are over 200 styles to choose from. If you like shopping from home, you can visit or and just give us a call.

Carrara-looking quartz goes beautifully with matte black hardware and a white shaker cabinet. Although nothing will emulate the look of true Carrara marble, quartz is the next best choice without the maintenance of real marble. Quartz continues to be extremely popular due to its easy-care characteristics. Caesarstone Frosty Carrina (this option available in polished or honed), Vadara Carrara Nuovo, Vicostone Misterio, MSI Carrara Lumos, and Elements Torano quartz are our top picks for this look.

For those of you not familiar with Granite Plus, we are family-owned and operated. We offer cabinetry, countertops, tile, and flooring. If you are remodeling or building new construction, we have all the resources you need. You can stop by our showroom at 17801 Ashley Drive or give us a call at (850) 236-6363.
