Trends in Countertops for 2020

Updated: Dec 8, 2022

Unlike trends in fashion, trends in countertops often have a staying power of years rather than seasons.

This is incredibly important when you’re embarking on a kitchen or bathroom renovation. An investment as big as new stone countertops not only should achieve a WOW factor in your home, but will possess a timeless finish that will look good and stylish for a lifetime.

If you’re embarking on a change anytime soon, consider these great trends in countertops.

Dark and natural hues: A contrasting trend in countertops from the past

The last few years saw bright and airy hues taking over kitchen and bathroom countertops. With more and more homeowners opting for a nature-inspired finish to their homes, there’s more demand dark and naturally coloured countertops to take the stage.

This isn’t to say that the entire space should possess a dark finish. If you’re installing dark countertops on your kitchen space, opt for light and bright walls to balance the look and achieve the effect of a larger space.

Matching back splash

There’s something clean and crisp about a unified kitchen design. More and more homeowners are opting for countertops that literally blend with the tiling on the walls and back splash. Marble is often the choice of material with this type of design, as it’s minimalist finish works in all facets of the room.

The comeback of Terrazzo Tiles

Terrazzo tiles have come a long way since the 70s! The resurgence of this charming and vintage countertop material gives homeowners more creative freedom and added flare in their designs.

With so many designs and colours to choose from, the use of Terrazzo tiles is a trend that we anticipate will be here to stay.

Minimalist Designs

There’s something to be said about clean, sleek, and no-fuss countertop designs. The minimalist trend in countertops isn’t limited to just 2020. We’ve seen this trend popping up on our Pinterest and social media feeds since last year…but in honesty, we couldn’t help but put it on this list.

We feel like it’s a trend that will grow more popular in the years to come.

Quartz: The timeless trend in countertops

Ahhh, where would we be without quartz! The endless design, colour options, and finishes makes it an end-all-be-all option for homeowners looking to elevate the look of their home.

The versatility of this countertop style is the reason for why it’s on everyone’s “top trending” list, and we can see why!

This countertop material is truly a timeless piece that everyone should add to their home.
