Top 4 2018 Kitchen Countertop Trends, Marlboro, New Jersey

If a more functional and aesthetically pleasing cooking space is your current remodeling priority, consider installing new countertops. Kitchen countertops instantly transform the look of this high-traffic space while also making it easier to complete certain tasks. Here, the experts at A&E Kitchen and Bath Design Center in Marlboro, NJ, discuss some of the top counter trends of 2018 to help you make an informed decision.

Top 4 Kitchen Countertop Trends of 2018

1. Seamless Sinks

Instead of installing a separate sink made of a different material, many homeowners are integrating the fixture with their countertops. This creates a seamless look inspired by traditional farmhouses. These also promote a healthier cooking space. They are easy to clean, and there is no risk of trapping food particles, water, and bacteria between the sink and the counter.

2. Quartz

Unlike granite, this material does not require regular sealing to prevent staining, nor is it as susceptible to cracking and chipping. It is also available in a wide variety of colors and patterns to create an original look.

3. Neutral Tones

Neutral tones in the kitchen provide the perfect foundation for using color in other ways, such as with a mosaic backsplash or beautifully patterned curtains. Kitchen countertops featuring neutral hues also contribute to open, airy spaces. If your room is somewhat small and dark or has lots of natural light via large windows, neutral countertops will resolve these issues.

4. Wood

Butcher-block-style kitchen countertops are another hot 2018 trend ideal for anyone who loves to cook and bake. They also contribute to an eco-friendly home because many are made of reclaimed wood. If you choose this option, use the recommended sealants to prevent staining.
