Designing Your New Cedarglen Home: Top 2022 Countertop Trends

Designing Your New Cedarglen Home: Top 2022 Countertop Trends

Countertops are essential to the design of your kitchen. They will dictate the colour and design of your backsplash as well as the colour of your walls and other accents. Choosing the right countertops for your space involves both your personal preferences and functionality for your lifestyle. If you are using the same countertops in other areas of your home such as in a bathroom or a nook, consider how it will work in these spaces as well as your kitchen. To help you figure out what countertops will add the perfect touch to your beautiful new Cedarglen home, check out these 6 hot countertop trends.

6 Countertop Trends

  1. Classic Quartz
    Quartz countertops give a similar look to granite but without the maintenance required of granite countertops. Quartz countertops are durable, easy to clean, stain-resistant, and low maintenance. This material offers a classic look similar to granite, with the same pattern of veining that offers movement while staying fairly neutral.
  2. Different Finishings
    Not everyone wants a shiny countertop. Textures in the home are a big trend right now and this can extend to your countertops. Honed surfaces offer a matte finish that can help to hide any scratches or imperfections that occur. The exact look of your honed surface will depend on the material of your countertops, but it will offer a smooth surface with low sheen. Leathered finish is another popular style right now. This texture subdues the ultra-reflective qualities countertops can often have and it helps to hide water spots and fingerprints, making it easier to maintain on a day-to-day basis.
  3. Veining And Patterns
    Veining is used to imitate natural rock such as marble. Unlike natural rock, modern countertops can be made with specialty veining and patterns so that you can choose the colour of your design as well as how prominent or subtle you want the veining. Despite these countertops being man-made, they look very natural. Veining and patterns give an elevated and elegant look to a space while also allowing for customization and creativity.
  4. Oversized Sinks
    These large sinks that extend to the edge of the countertop are not only coveted for their appearance, they are incredibly practical and make great use of the space available. With integrated sinks, the 2 or 3-inch strip of counter between yourself and the sink doesn’t benefit you, instead taking up space. With oversized sinks, this added space can help you to fit more into the sink and make your washing easier. Pair your oversized sink with matte black, gold, or bronze faucets for a contemporary look.
  5. Contrast
    A dark countertop, particularly when paired with light cabinets, makes a bold statement while performing practical functions. When countertops are dark or black, it makes your plates, linens, and other accents stand out. The dark colouration also helps to give the space a sophisticated look while hiding imperfections that may develop over time. A bold and dramatic countertop makes your space more intentional and can create a sense of luxury.
  6. Sustainable Materials
    Eco-friendly homes are more than a trend, they are the way of the future. Using recycled and/or sustainable materials in your home can help reduce your carbon footprint, generate less waste, and give your home a great look. One of the most popular types of countertops right now uses recycled glass and cement to create a VOCs and plastic resin-free countertop. These recycled materials also add a sparkle to your home and come in a variety of colors, ranging from neutral to bold.
