Denver Natural Stone Kitchen Countertop Design Trends

March 27, 2019

For years the movement to natural stone countertops has been growing and after decades of reliability and an unmatched look, it is a safe bet these will continue. While the push for more natural surfaces and materials continues to grow, there are a few current design trends that are helping to pave the way forward for stone surfaces inside the home.

Kitchens have always been a focal point and gathering place inside the home. As one of the most used rooms and often a central location for entertaining, guests, and visitors - the first impression can either be positive or negative, depending on looks. These modern design trends will ensure your kitchen is always providing the former, creating an inviting and open space for everyone who enters.

Natural stone has been a modern trend in kitchen countertop design for quite some time but newer materials are also beginning to become more common. Quartz, especially, is growing in popularity across the nation due to the wide arrange of available colors and durability of the material.

Natural Look
Getting a natural look has long been a goal for favorite kitchen countertop materials. Using stone has been a way to achieve it and this modern trend is continuing with even more edge. Natural veins and a more abstract look is growing in popularity. Instead of a dull solid, pieces in their natural state, even with what may have been previously viewed as an ill side effect, is now being embraced in modern kitchens.

Dark colors are rising inside kitchens today. Instead of pristine white and brighter colors, more greys and blacks are now being installed. These earth tones provide a more inviting appeal than the stark contrast of bright whites.

Island Matching
Contrasting kitchen island installations are also growing in popularity. By making the island a different material or color from the other countertop spaces, it creates a central focal point and gives exquisite detail to your space. A bold statement can be achieved by highlighting the island area using a different material or color combination. 

Backsplash Breakthrough
In similar fashion, the reign of clean, white subway tile backsplash is falling. Instead, many homeowners are electing to opt for designs with more angles and color. Subway tile paved the way for backsplash to become a stand alone design aspect for kitchens and now the opportunities for creating almost any desired look can be achieved with the plethora of options available for use.
