Kitchen Countertop Trends In 2024 You Should Consider!
Some people say the kitchen is the heart of any home. Family meals, baking with others, holiday dinners, and more are all done in the kitchen. Seeing that the kitchen holds such significance in our lives, it’s essential to ensure it fits our needs, taste, and style!
People can debate the most important part of the kitchen, but a kitchen without the perfect countertops is incomplete. You have numerous choices when selecting your countertop, including options for size, shape, material, color, pattern, and finish.
To kick off the year with excitement, we’ve compiled a list of four countertop trends you’ll see in 2024!
Top 4 Kitchen Countertop Trends in 2024
1. Curve Appeal
Looking for a curve appeal for your kitchen? Try curved or styled edges for your countertops!
Nothing says fun, yet classy like designed edges on countertops do. To match your style, STONE’s fabrication team can customize your stone countertops with edges like quarter-round or triple pencil!
Custom countertop edges make your kitchen stand out, revealing more of your personality and style to guests. Recently we have seen an increase in popularity for circular counters on islands. Rather than using the classic corner edge many people have turned toward having different shapes for edges. If you are looking for a unique taste for your kitchen this is the ideal outlet for you.
If you’re worried about the hassle of the process, don’t! From accurate measurements to a thorough cleanup post-installation, your satisfaction is our priority. Learn more about the countertop edges we offer by visiting our previous article here!
2. Statement Island
A new countertop trend we’ve found making a statement in 2024 is “statement islands” in kitchens.
If you’re looking for a POP of color in your kitchen, having a statement island is for you! So, what are statement islands?
Statement islands in kitchens feature countertops with a different color or material than the main counters. Having complementary countertops that aren’t exact matches adds character and changes the focal point of your kitchen. For instance, choosing white quartz for your main counters and black quartz for your island makes it stand out and complements the overall kitchen. The black and white quartz complement each other while also separately appealing to others.
Fortunately, at STONE, our showrooms offer a range of options in color, size, and material. So you can mix and match your selections all day! Some of our most popular stone slabs include quartz, quartzite, marble, and granite. Whether you are looking for a more aesthetic look, marble and quartz, or want a classic look, granite, you’ll find it at STONE!
3. Waterfall Edge
Eye-catching doesn’t even begin to describe this 2024 countertop trend we’ve fallen in love with! Waterfall edges for kitchen countertops are the perfect way to elevate your kitchen!
Wondering what waterfall edges are? Waterfall edges are countertops that extend down the side of the island, cabinet, or seating area toward the floor. Exactly like a waterfall, the counter continues to the floor at a 90-degree angle.
This new trending countertop form adds the perfect element of uniqueness to your space. Waterfall edges can include almost any material of your liking, including marble, quartz, quartzite, granite, and more. Although, we highly recommend using our personal favorite – quartz!
4. Marble At This
Marble is another one of our favorite materials for countertops! Marble is a timeless piece that is perfect for adding class and beauty to any room. On top of being a stunning stone, marble is a durable material for countertops. Compared to other stones, marble is more often resistant to scratches, cracks, and breaks if adequately taken care of!
Unfortunately, marble is more prone to stains because of its calcium components. No need to fret, though! Our team can offer you an easy-to-follow maintenance routine to keep your marble clean and in shape. With proper care, marble has been a fantastic choice for counters for over 2,000 years!
On top of being a trending countertop material, marble has risen in popularity for kitchen sinks and backsplashes! If you are looking for a sleek and continuous finish for your kitchen, then having marble extend beyond the counter is just for you. Although stainless steel remains a good choice for sinks, marble has skyrocketed as a popular material!
Want a bolder look for your counters and sink? Similarly to statement islands, using a different type of stone for the sink compared to the counters adds flavor to the style.
Styles come and go, but one timeless piece in any kitchen is countertops. At STONE, we understand that your kitchen is the centerpiece of your home and sets the tone for your style and taste.
Our design team can craft a kitchen that exceeds your expectations and suits you perfectly. On top of crafting countertops to your liking, we can provide a creative take for the rest of your space! If you are looking to reinvent your home, STONE has a vast selection of backsplashes, flooring options, cloth, decor, and more.
