While certain countertop choices are timeless, there’s no doubting that trends change over time. If you’re looking to modernize your kitchen into something that will boost its aesthetic, keep it looking attractive for years to come, and potentially raise the resale value of your home, we don’t blame you.
Take a look at these modern options:
Steel and concrete have had their fifteen minutes of fame, and we’re happy to say that natural stone materials are back in the spotlight. The allure of granite, marble, and engineered quartz (which can be made to mimic the look of natural stone) will stick around for a long time to come. Choosing one of these materials for your kitchen is never a bad idea.
If you’re looking for a countertop that makes a statement, many people instinctively think of granite and its confident patterns. While there are plenty of stunning granite patterns, you might be surprised at how marble is taking over the countertop sphere in this regard.
Marble has a soft, soothing appeal that granite just doesn’t have. It offers the same confidence but without any hint of brashness.
If you’re looking for a comfortable place to start, check out Calacatta marble. It comes in neutral white and gray palettes that work for almost any kitchen design, and its heavy veining is eye-catching and gorgeous.
Many of our customers find themselves torn between a high-gloss, polished stone and the casual appeal of textured countertops. We’re happy to report that a honed finish offers a happy medium that is a mixture of mild textures and a muted shine.
You can often find this finish on darker natural stone, like black granite. But if you choose to use it on a lighter slab of material, it comes with an interesting contrast to the rest of the kitchen.
Matching Countertops and Backsplashes
If you’re proud of the pattern that you chose for your natural stone countertop, why not extend it further? Specifically, why not extend it up the wall? Using the same material for your countertop and your backsplash is a great way to make a statement and encourage the design of your kitchen to flow.
Natural stone countertops are luxurious in themselves, but if you’re looking to kick the luxury up a notch, you can do so by installing waterfall countertops. Waterfall countertops extend all the way to the floor and show off the design of your countertops in a breathtaking, attention-grabbing way. Just make sure you have adequate space to pull it off!
