Denver Natural Stone: Popular Countertop Trends for 2020

February 27, 2020

As the new year continues, often there are individuals who set goals either personally or related to other activities. These can often include home improvements and one area many people choose to upgrade when completing a remodeling project is their kitchen. Often, a time dated area of the home, there are a few distinct characteristics that have withstood the test of time but others are emerging as new trends and seem poised to work well into the future.

There are many options available for beautiful designer kitchens and remodels can focus on something as simple as replacing current countertops to rearranging the layout and replacing all existing fixtures and appliances. No matter your current goals for 2020, consider these specific trends should you decide to upgrade your countertop surfaces this year.

Natural Stone Selections

Installing natural selections (granite, quartz, martble, etc.) has been a trending topic for quite some time and seems to only be growing in popularity. While there has been a slight turn to other materials in lieu of granite, the stone options continue to offer existing benefits with a lifetime of quality use.


The kitchen counter challenge can be exactly what type of material to utilize for the future because a natural stone selection will last a lifetime with proper upkeep. For this reason, determining if you wish to have veining lines present can be a detailed process. Essentially, it comes down to personal opinion but veining lines add character and are currently rising in popularity across the country.

Contrasting Colors

In the past most homes have utilized a similar color combination for their kitchens. While yellows and greens were utilized more during the 1970’s and 80’s, natural tones with stark white and black have recently become more commonplace. Even newer trends are to incorporate a natural, light color with a stark contrast. Utilized either with an island countertop opposite the other surfaces or even in different cabinets from one area to the next, a splash of color seems to be the popular opinion at the moment.
