Your kitchen is one of the most-used rooms in your home, so you'll want to keep it looking its best. Even if your countertops are still in good condition, that doesn't necessarily mean that they are still in style. Here at Distinctive Marble & Granite, we have a lot of experience doing kitchen remodels, and we are on the pulse of the latest innovations in the industry. Here's a look at some of the hottest trends in kitchen countertops that we have seen as of late.
Natural granite has long been a standby of kitchen design, and its popularity is showing no signs of waning. Granite is beautiful to look at and durable under the rigors of the heavy use that your kitchen gets. Don't forget to have it resealed each year to prevent bacteria from getting into this porous material. To make this classic countertop material look modern, watch for unique colors, like shades of blue or gray.
Quartz, when it was first introduced as a countertop material, aimed to be an alternative to granite. However, over the years, it has gained popularity in its own right. Quartz is even easier to clean than granite, and it is non-porous, so it doesn't need to be sealed. It offers a wide range of naturally occurring colors and patterns, so you can find a hue to suit just about any decorative style.
DEKTON is a manufactured material that is ideally suited to kitchen environments. It is resistant to fire, scratches, liquid absorption, freezing and more, making it one of the most durable countertop materials in existence. It even resists damage from UV rays so that you can use it for outdoor kitchen areas as well as indoor. DEKTON countertops are far thinner than their traditional stone counterparts, and that thin, sleek look is incredibly popular for kitchens right now.
Soothing Color Palettes
Shades of white and gray are having a major moment in kitchen design, so try to incorporate these colors into your kitchen remodel. Although they are traditionally viewed as neutrals, these shades can create a stunning minimalist look that will make your kitchen truly pop. With a simple color palette, you'll be able to play around with texture and pattern to create visual interest. Choose shiny pieces in some areas and matte finishes in others to create depth.
