A kitchen is a very functional space where you cook, wash, clean, eat and much more. Therefore, the kitchen equipment should not only be stylish, but also practical. A kitchen can look dated or tasteless if countertops are not chosen properly. Kitchen countertops can also be trendy or untrendy, adding chic to your space and making it bolder and more functional for whatever you want to do with it. Here are three kitchen countertop trends that you can consider to make your kitchen look great.
Concrete is one of the best materials for a backsplash or countertop due to its many benefits. First, it immediately has a modern feel and is very trendy. In addition to being suitable for industrial or minimalist spaces, it is also used in many other kitchens: modern, art deco, vintage and so on. Concrete comes in many different forms: it can take on all shapes, stains, textures and finishes, so you can find something for every style of kitchen. Concrete is not expensive compared to other solutions and you can even make it yourself.
Granite has been and still is the most popular choice for kitchen countertops. Granite has a rich beauty and natural appeal that not many materials can match. With more than 20 granite colors, you can find one that blends perfectly with your kitchen cabinets, floors and walls. Granite is a very hard substance and not prone to scratching. Granite is also heat resistant, making it ideal for use near a stove or hob. Granite can be very stain resistant and will not absorb liquids if properly sealed. A good professional plumber can seal it properly to keep it looking good indefinitely, or you can do it yourself.
Butcher block worktops are classics; They add a warmth to any kitchen that no other worktop material can match. There are many types of wood to choose from. You can use light, colorful or dark stained countertops and try angular surfaces. Wooden counters suit all styles from traditional to contemporary. Wood makes an excellent work surface: the edges of your cutlery will last longer than when working on granite or concrete.
