Countertops are among the essential features of a kitchen. Indispensable as they may be for most homeowners, countertops also adapt changes along with the dynamics of rapid and steady innovations. This year, though, the design is what catches the eye, yet durability, functionality and upkeep. should not be set aside
Having seen the countertop’s value in kitchen design, kitchen remodeling designers recommend that homeowners should determine what kind of material, surface and style they want for your countertops.
That’s why we’ve brought together the most popular countertop trends for 2020 to lend you inspiration for your next kitchen remodeling.
Contrasting Colors and Materials
Playing with contrasting colors will add a new and cheerful appearance to your kitchen. To create an eye-catching and diverse room, you could clash your kitchen counters in varied ways. Try to do a mix and match! Work on using various materials such as stone or wood to achieve the ideal combination for contrasting both light and dark hues. A cheerful color palette of vivid or pastel hues may also be created to develop a room that integrates variety within its theme and design.
Minimalist Designs With Integrated Sink
On the other hand, if you are a minimalist fan, which is Millennials’ most influential trend, Then you might also love the thought of a fresh kitchen concept with a built-in sink. The primary distinction between an integrated sink versus a traditional sink is how the sinks are mounted.
Since integrated sinks come built-in with tiled countertops out of the very same material of your choice, the transition within these two installations is smooth and seamless, introducing an elegant, sophisticated feel on your kitchen.
Furthermore, traditional cabinet designs would go perfect with this style as there is no such grandiose display of accents needed.
If you are concerned about more environmentally sustainable options in choosing your kitchen countertops, then most probably, you’ll also enjoy one of the new industry trends – composite countertops. These types of countertops are made from recycled materials such as paper and ash.
The beauty of this countertop comes on its commendable feature in withstanding stains and even inhibiting bacterial growth. This tile type can also endure heat and scratching, allowing homeowners the freedom to make a practical design decision both for their kitchens and the environment.
Quartz (Still In The Trend)
Granite had used to dominate the traditional kitchen design for the countertop industry before quartz. However, quartz has always been the king of countertops due to its high quality, low maintenance standard, and durability. Though granite arrives in a handful of colors, it is reliable and is much more lasting. Granite, however, is porous. Over time, water and perhaps other liquids can leak into the counter, which creates unpleasant stains and eventually ruin the surface.
In comparing it with granite, quartz is non-porous, which means you don’t have to think about resealing them to preserve the countertops. Quartz tiles have always been exceptionally durable and available with just about any style schemes in varying patterns and colors.
