2020 Countertop Trends
It’s that time again to peer into the crystal ball and see what’s trending, new and exciting for the year ahead in countertops.
Natural Stone Trends
White and grey stones remain popular, as well as larger veined material. Uniqueness of pattern has become increasingly important, exhibited through depth of color, variation of vein thickness and stone translucency.
Dark or black stones show high contrast with large movement and tone-on-tone looks through linear patterning.
Finishes vary from polished to matte, with the matte looks going beyond honed and providing more texture and a tactile response.
Green stones are also making an appearance and a comeback in 2020 – in all shades, with warmer toned neutrals to round out the palette. Metal accenting completes the picture.
Quartz manufacturers – like LG Hausys’ Viatera and MSI’s Q Quartz line – are always scanning the marketplace to watch for new developments that could influence their latest offerings. A lot of thought and research goes into launching new countertop products to make sure that it’s aligned with the current demand curve (or helps create a new one).
At the beginning of every year, splash new product introductions from industry manufacturers are highlighted at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) at the start of each year and provide countless new design options to consider. Stay tuned for more developments!
Whether you prefer natural granite, marble or quartz, watch for many innovative and fresh looks in the coming year – and our inventory will reflect it!
