New Year, New Stone Trends

Happy New Year! With 2020 in full swing, we can now talk about some of our favorite stone and countertop trends for this year. Some are classics we see from year to year, and a few are new trends we just can’t wait to tell you about. If a kitchen or bathroom remodel is on your to-do list for 2020, these trends are sure to get you excited!

Slab Backsplash
Stone slab backsplashes will add so much drama to your kitchen. Extending the countertop material, whether that be granite, quartz or marble, up the wall to meet your cabinetry, creates a streamlined, clean and contemporary backsplash design.

Double Islands
Here’s a new idea we are really loving! Expand your kitchen’s functionality and maintain a great traffic flow with double islands. It’s a great way to divide the space and create two distinct areas; one for preparing food and another for gathering with family and friends! You can make even more of a statement on your double islands by using a complementing stone countertop to match the rest of the countertops in your kitchen. Or, you can opt for a contrasting countertop color to really make the islands the focal point of the space.

Gravity Defying Countertops
Clean lines and sleek designs are definitely trending in 2020. Many homeowners want to maximize open space, and a gravity defying countertop is the perfect way to do that! Having a countertop that extends feet beyond the structure of your island not only allows you to slide barstools underneath but creates a cool architectural piece in your kitchen!Quartz
Once again, in 2020, quartz isn’t going anywhere. At the top of the countertop material list, quartz is both durable and beautiful! We highly suggest visiting our stone yard to see our many quartz options in person!Dark Stones
In years past we have seen light and bright trends, with white countertops and white cabinetry. But, in 2020 expect to see dark stones more and more. Especially in smaller spaces and bathrooms, dark stones can add a lot of drama to your space. Dark stone countertops paired with dark cabinetry will be trending this year!
