With so many kitchen upgrades and styles to choose from, homeowners are looking for any details that can set them apart. One of the best ways to elevate the design of a kitchen is by installing a natural stone from Granite Liquidators. These materials originate from the top quarries in the world and will improve functionality and style all throughout any space.
One of the best ways to take your kitchen countertops to the next level is by implementing a unique architectural element. This can come in many shapes and forms, but ultimately will add interest and the x-factor to any kitchen space.
One of the most popular trends we have seen in recent decades is the waterfall edge style. Waterfall countertops hang off one or more sides of a counter and cascade perpendicularly towards the ground. This style is loved by many designers and architects for its seamless flow and effortless addition of class to any space.
It’ll cost slightly more than your average slab because you will need to purchase more square footage of the stone. But other than the minor added costs, this design is easy to install and won’t break the bank.
Live Edge Countertops
Another popular design for kitchen countertops is live edge slabs. Live edge slabs are the same as the others but feature the raw edge of the material. This is especially great for homes in need of more texture and a natural feel. Live edge slabs can come in many different forms, making your kitchen entirely unique to you.
Many homeowners even take it a step further and opt for materials that are not polished like traditional slabs. The combination of live edging and an unfinished surface create an organic and raw design for all to love.
One way to take your space to the next level is literally! Installing a countertop that has surfaces on different levels is a great way to maximize space while adding dimension to your design. These styles are especially great for those with eat-in kitchens or kitchens with bar-level seating.
These are great kitchen designs for families on the go where dining tables aren’t as practical. They also come in handy for those that love to cook or bartend, making for an easy transport of food to table.
Why settle for one island when you can have two?! Double islands have been all the rage in the last decade, and for good reason. For those who love to entertain or have big families, a double island can help to improve functionality and efficiency in the kitchen. Not to mention, more counter space to feed the whole crew!
Double islands also provide double the amount of storage— perfect for hiding away all those pots and pans. Double islands are the epitome of high class and family-friendly features for any household to enjoy for years.
Breakfast Nook Island
An uncommon, but very practical and stylish, way to include architectural elements into your countertops is by adding a breakfast nook island. This surface can be made with leftover materials from the main countertop or an entirely new slab and style. Implementing natural stone into an area that sees a lot of use will help with easier clean-up and consistent design throughout the space.
