With the start of a new year, many homeowners are probably looking for different ways of upgrading their kitchens without going for a full remodeling service. In that case, the most recommended choice would be a countertop installation project.
Having high-quality countertops can provide many benefits for most kitchens today. Aside from serving as a working area for preparing meals, a well-designed countertop can significantly increase the beauty and elegance of a kitchen. What’s even more interesting is that 2020 has a lot to offer when it comes to the trends that are about to emerge in kitchen design.
If you’re one of those who finally took the bold step in bringing the functionality of their kitchen to the next level, check off these five of the most anticipated kitchen countertop design trends of 2020:
Quartz Tops Them All
Quartz countertops are going to be the most popular choice, as many manufacturers as now hailing this material to be the top choice for the following months to come. This is because even though other countertop materials such as granite possess the same level of durability as quartz, it is a porous material that could make it more susceptible to stains. Quartz, on the other hand, can naturally combat and resist any stains with its non-porous property. Lesser stains combined with easy-to-clean surface turn quartz into a highly sought-after countertop material for this year.
Patterns and Character-Veining Countertops
Having more personalized countertops is an excellent way of giving their kitchen a sense of uniqueness and character. To achieve this goal, many countertops are now available in a wide variety of designs. Such choices come in terms of patterns. Quartz countertops are specially engineered to fulfill this purpose by producing veins in aesthetically-pleasing patterns swirled into the countertop slabs. Customizing the patterns on the countertop slabs enables designers to match its design with the existing walls, flooring, backsplash, and cabinetry.
Surface Wars Are On
While a polished surface will remain as the most popular option for countertops, honed and leather surfaces are getting closer behind. Each finish can offer several benefits that could make the competition quite tight for this year. A honed finish refers to a matte finish with minimal shininess. Though the look may depend on the type of the stone, such a surface tends to be smooth with a low sheen. The leather finish can help provide a more sophisticated look with its soft sheen that is less glossy from a polished surface.
Neutral Toned Countertops
Neutrality is a concept in the kitchen design that gives further emphasis on the use of different colors. For 2020, countertops will lean more on the combinations of neutral-toned colors. One example is greige, which is a mixture of grey and beige. Expect to have more of these newly-established countertop colors as designers are giving their clients more freedom to experiment with such color themes.
The green movement finally enters the kitchen industry by introducing environment-friendly choices especially in the countertop installation services. In addition to quartz, sustainable countertop materials are also on the rise, with recycled glass and white cement currently taking the centerstage. These sustainable countertop materials are known to be free of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and plastic resins.
