Some Popular Kitchen Counter Design Trends
What type of kitchen countertop are you looking for? Some people know what they want, such as modern country kitchens or other aesthetics. Others may not know the answer until they see it. Many people draw inspiration from the current trends in kitchen counter design. You can look at these ideas and find something that may work in your kitchen, such as:
- Quartz: Quartz is a natural rock that comes in many striking finishes. Homeowners like it because it is attractive and offers durability. The nonporous surface requires no resealing and resists stains, giving you a low-maintenance countertop. Matte quartz has become particularly on-trend.
- Honed: Polished countertops remained popular for a long time, providing the shines-like-new appearance that so many people strive to achieve. Lately, homeowners have drifted toward honed materials, which have no shine and a matte finish. Low sheen complements marble, which covers up scratch marks.
- Imperfections: For many years, people wanted countertops that looked picture-perfect, but a more natural look has become popular. Veined and more realistic pieces of stone create a kitchen countertop with a natural look you will treasure.
- Dramatic contrasts: Many homeowners choose bold colors for their cabinets and countertops, offering an opportunity for a more substantial distinction between those focal points and the rest of the kitchen. Such countertops make a statement and add to the room’s sophistication. A black countertop next to white cabinets, for instance, creates an unforgettable combination.
- Focal point: Your kitchen countertop should be a highlight that draws the eye. Regardless of the material you choose, your countertop should make a statement that reflects the style of the rest of the room.
- Thick slabs: Picking a countertop that’s thicker than the typical 2 inches makes the material pop and gives your kitchen a more commanding style. This dimension makes a stronger impression if you use the design on just one part of the kitchen, such as the island.

Are you interested in a stone we don’t have in stock? We can find it for you. Our team focuses on providing what you want, and we will look for anything that you think would look great in your new kitchen.
At Atlantic, we stand by a simple principle. We provide the level of service for you that we would expect from someone working in our own homes. We want you to understand each step of our process.
We begin by showing examples of our high-quality products in the showroom and discussing the materials we have available. Our team can advise you on matching your stone to your cabinetry and flooring in your kitchen and show you each material’s advantages. Once you select your stone, we visit your home. Using the latest measuring technology, we scan every curve in your kitchen so that we can precision-shape our materials for a snug fit.
Next, we perform the slab imaging, letting you pick your favorite slab areas and carefully crafting invisible seams and a stone patterning flow that makes it look like the whole countertop is a solid piece. Our team produces and fabricates the slabs into a new countertop with perfectly formed edges.
Finally, we arrive at installation day, performed by our in-house technicians who prioritize protecting your home. We may need anywhere from two or three hours to a day or more for a complex installation. We never rush, taking our time to deliver the best countertop and get your seal of approval.
