The new year has been rung in, and we’re seeing some exciting trends for kitchen design this year, including some beautiful Colorado Springs kitchen countertops. Let’s take a look at what the new decade is bringing to our kitchens.
We’re not saying that all-white kitchens are going out of style, but color is being welcomed back. Whether it’s a bright accent wall (or ceiling), natural wood details, or contrasting dark countertops, bright pops and colors that draw the eye are proving a popular choice.
Quartz Is Having a Moment
We’ve seen quartz used more and more over recent years, but it’s never been more popular than right now. It’s an excellent choice for countertops for those who do want the all-white kitchen, but don’t want the care requirements of marble. The non-porous material comes in a wide array of colors and shades, so it’s proving a popular choice for kitchens with other color schemes, and we’ve been seeing it migrate beyond the countertop.
The Slab Backsplash
Eye-catching and simple at once, placing a single piece of stone behind the stove is the perfect way to create a clean center focal point around the kitchen’s “hearth.” It’s a clean solution often preferable to tiles.
Not Too Shiny
High polish so popular over the last decade has begun to give way to more muted mattes. We are seeing more stone countertops with a honed finish that is smooth and more matte than shiny.
Not unlike the bright colors, bold graphic lines and shapes are proving popular. Check out the Calacatta pattern in both quartz and marble to get some ideas for how you can introduce these lines into your kitchen.
