Kitchen Countertop Design Trends- Part 2


1) Soapstone: Quarried like granite, soapstone is a naturally gray color that darkens with age. Soapstone offers a smooth feel and matte finish and offers homeowner’s low maintenance as scratches can easily be sanded or oiled away.

2) Recycled Glass: With a life expectancy of over 50 years, recycled glass countertops offer an environmentally friendly design choice. Many color choices and easy maintenance are selling points for these types of unique surfaces.

3) Pewter: While stainless steel offers a very “clinical” design look, pewter evokes a gentler feel. While the look of a pewter countertop can be wonderful, it is a very delicate material and must be treated with care to avoid nicks and dings. One option to this is having the pewter countertop overlaid with a hammered design.

4) Slate: Slate is no longer for walkways and roofs and has moved into many kitchen designs. With a natural ridge and dented look to the material that many find aesthetically pleasing, slate is a wonderful material that hides nicks and dings.

5) Quartz: Quartz is the perfect countertop material for those looking for a material that requires little maintenance. Due to its strength, durability, and choices of colors, quartz remains a favorite of many designers and homeowners.
