Learning Links—2014 Kitchen & Remodeling Trends



In our showroom, we often get asked about the latest kitchen and remodeling trends. We also get asked questions about countertop colors and what people seem to be buying now.  When is comes to color selections, there are always those colors that have been consistently popular over the years that seem to be timeless. There are other specific colors however, that seem to sell in streaks. This is also true with some color tones depending on what is popular for decorating for a particular year. Last year we saw an increase in the color, white and gray. While I think this trend may carry through this year, we still are seeing consumers purchasing bolder colors, as well. Mixing and matching countertop materials has also become popular. It is not unusual to see someone purchase both a natural stone, such as granite, for an island with a “quartz” product for some perimeter tops, or vice versus. It is also popular to use 2 or more granite colors for a kitchen, or bathroom, as well as using several cabinet color options.

Mix & Match Countertop Materials To Create A Unique Look…



Over the last several years, it has become popular to mix and match not only wood tones, but also countertop materials, as well…And why not? Mixing and matching materials allows the consumer to really personalize their space and also creates a unique look.

With so many colors available and a variety of countertop options, it makes sense that  some people are opting to pick more than one. Contrasting countertop materials may even help tie some color tones together.

Let’s take a look at a recent kitchen we fabricated and installed with 2 different countertop materials:

Aspen White Granite Island; Dupont Zodiac Storm Gray

This kitchen shows an Aspen White Granite Island with Dupont Zodiac Storm Gray perimeter tops. Notice how the two materials compliment each other.

The lighter island top with dark colored wood cabinets also contrasts well with the darker colored perimeter tops to the white cabinets. The other decor also works well to tie it all together.

If you are looking at combining several material options for your countertops, make sure you stop by our showroom. We not only have a large selection of granite available, but also provide a number of “quartz” products including: Caesarstone, Silestone, Difiniti, Dupont Zodiaq and Hanstone.  We are always happy to help you with your selections.

Add A Neutral Tone Countertop To Lift The Spirit…



While the color, white, seems to be a popular choice for countertops by consumers these days, other neutral colors have also become popular for countertops, as well as for other decorating. Benjamin Moore, in fact, has created a neutral palette of colors based on colors that they have seen popping up in the home furnishings industry, such as carpet, wallpaper, etc. Their new palette consists of 23  harmonic colors that work well together for decorating. According to the article, The New Neutral Palette, found on their website, there’s been “a shift away from gray to tints of blues, greens, lavenders and pinks.” Pastels have been popping up that are softened and filtered, that help to lift the spirit and give a room a happy feeling.

If you are doing a little remodeling and are looking for countertops, we have plenty of neutral colors to choose from. Whether you are looking for a natural stone, or a “quartz” product, there are lots of options for cooler, subdued tones that allow your accents to make a statement.
