Need new countertops to go along with your recently updated cabinets? Whether you’re updating your entire kitchen or are just making some small changes, new countertops will make a big difference. From quality classics to an update on colours, here are the kitchen countertop trends we’ll be seeing more of in 2021.
1. Quartz Continues to Reign
For the past few years, we’ve seen quartz countertops steadily rising in popularity. In 2021, quartz will continue to dominate our countertops. Quartz is a popular choice because it looks like expensive marble but at a fraction of the cost. Quartz is also durable and easy to care for, unlike other more expensive materials. Coming in a wide variety of colours and styles, you’re sure to find a quartz countertop to suit your kitchen.
2. Dark and Moody
Something new this year is dark kitchen countertops. Typically, countertops are lighter colours such as white or grey. This year, things are getting moodier and darker. If you have light kitchen cabinets, try adding dark countertops for a stark contrast. You can never go wrong with classic black and white, or try adding an unexpected colour on top of your wood cabinets. Darker coloured cabinets are also trending this year, so don’t be afraid to fully go to the dark side.
3. Seamless Transition
Having a hard time deciding on materials for both your countertops and your backsplash? What if we told you that you could use the same material for both! Talk about a time and money saver. In 2021, we will see more countertops that seamlessly transition into the backsplash. Materials like marble, metal, wood and yes, quartz, are all great options for this look.
