Denver Granite Trends To Love


October 26, 2016

Ready to update your old kitchen? Many homeowners dream of the day they can rip out their old countertops to replace them with a shiny, sparkling slab of Denver granite. This natural stone is not only beautiful and durable, but it can also increase the value of your home since it is so sought after! Convinced? Now, you just have to choose which type of granite you want in your home. Here is a look at the latest trends to help you with this tough decision:

Cool colors

There was a time when homeowners preferred warmer granite colors in shades of deep brown. But now, the pendulum is beginning to swing back in the other direction as more homeowners are choosing cool and calm granite colors for the kitchen. Think icy blues, grays, and whites paired with dark cabinets for a beautiful contrast.

Details

Another granite trend homeowners are falling in love with is detailing on the edges. Ask the company that installs your granite what your choices are when it comes to adding a little detail to the edges. Usually, you can choose to have the corners rounded off, keep them straight and rectangular, or create a beveled look. The granite installer you work with will have examples to show you so you can get a better idea of what you want in your kitchen.

White granite

All white kitchens have exploded in popularity over the last few years, so of course, white granite is a huge trend in the design world right now. But, the good thing about choosing granite is you can pick a style with a lot of veining so it doesn’t look as bland. Homeowners who want the all white feel without looking completely washed out usually pick white granite with flecks of black, green or gray in it. This will instantly make your kitchen look larger, more luxurious and right on trend! For more design inspiration, take a look at these 40 white kitchens that are anything but vanilla.

Texture

Interior designers have started to incorporate more and more texture into the kitchen—not just for the countertops, but in all aspects of the design. Homeowners are beginning to use different patterns and materials for kitchen curtains, place mats and dishrags. When it comes to granite, homeowners are now beginning to appreciate the styles with a lot of metallic flecks because they add depth and texture to the space. Luckily, there are a wide range of granite colors with metallic flecks, from blues and greens to browns and pinks, so every homeowner should be able to find something that will match with their updated kitchen.
