If you haven’t changed the look and feel of your kitchen since you moved into your home, now may be the time. You’ve probably been pondering the idea, but haven’t thought too much of the design and style aspect. As the summer nears, there are trending designs becoming commonplace in kitchens across the country. Consider your budget and incorporate these trends into your kitchen for a modern look that stands out.

Homeowners are going for a clean look in an open concept. An island kitchen counter with cabinets extending to the ceiling makes the room appear larger and more inviting. Whether you’re looking for a complete renovation, or spot changes to certain areas, designers are seeing prevalence in the following designs.

Rise of Quartz: As an engineered stone slab, there is more and more interest in quartz slabs. They tend to be much more consistent in color and pattern than some of the other natural stones, allowing you more opportunity to match your vision. Quartz is the top choice for kitchen designers, with 88% of respondents to the National Kitchen and Bath Association's 2015 Trend Survey designing kitchens with the stone. With its engineered qualities, you can have a quartz slab that looks just like granite, or just like marble. It provides easy maintenance with its resistance to stains and bacteria, and doesn’t have to be sealed. Through its popularity, we have added Spectrum Quartz to our line of slabs.

Backsplash: Beyond the look of your countertop material, the backsplash completes the look of your kitchen. It serves the purpose of protecting the wall, adding texture to the overall design. Today, we’re seeing more and more simple backsplashes because homeowners don’t want distraction from the beautiful design. We typically see a subway tile over the sink or stove, but some glass accents are still being incorporated. A simple black subway tile with white grout is also trending.

We have a new quartz line offering here at Stone Masters, Spectrum Quartz!

Spectrum is a unique and exciting new offering of quartz countertops. Like all quartz surfaces Spectrum is non-pourous and as hard as granite. 

It offers a beautiful and durable countertops surface, but what sets it apart from other quartz lines is its evolution from a glass manufacture. Spectrum is infused with distinctive Hirsch art glass which lends to a stunning, glassy, and highly polished finish. That is truly captivating to see!

Spectrum Quartz surfaces never need to be sealer or otherwise maintained. Simply wipe clean with a cloth with mild soap and water for a beautiful and clean surface.

So what is soapstone? 

Soapstone is a durable and hardworking natural stone, that is largely comprised of talc. The talc is what gives soapstone its reputation of being "soft". While it is true that soapstone is softer than granite or quartz that is also part of its charm.

Soapstone countertops will "break in" overtime with your patterns. A soapstone customer likes this personalized and weathered touch to the material. Soapstone is a very forgiving material since scratches generally become a part of the stone's natural look. While large scratches can be sanded out by hand or often hidden by waxing or oiling the surface.
