Top Trends in Granite Kitchen Countertop Design 2020
2020 brought with it a series of new styles that interior designers and homeowners have flocked to. With regards to granite, there are three major stand-out trends that we think look great – and which you should look to.
Neutral tones and shades never go out of fashion. While many people are flocking to more noticeable patterns and veins in their granite countertops in 2020, neutral tones are still popular with people who want something understated and classy. Whether it’s white, cream, or even light blues and grays, there is an abundance of neutral options with granite slabs and they really do make the best granite kitchen countertops.
Honed finishes on granite are more popular than ever. This is a matte finish that either has little or zero shine. It looks different on every stone option and color, but it always delivers a gorgeous low sheen and a perfectly smooth look. It really stands out and focuses on the natural patterns in the granite, with no light reflections.
Veins and Patterns
Veins and patterns are back in. After a few years of people looking for the cleanest rock possible, designers and homeowners are once again choosing a stone with character. Granite certainly offers this character, and you’ll see that in virtually all the options we provide. While some have minimal patterns and veins – which can look amazing too – most of our granite options are packed with rich, naturally-forming patterns that make every kitchen or bathroom look unique.
