Trends and styles in the world of interior design are constantly changing, but one thing that you can always count on is the timeless appeal of natural stone. Natural stone offers you a wide range of unique colors and patterns that infuse your home with a blend of luxury and elegance. In addition, each type of natural stone possesses its own distinct personality, ensuring there will be an option that reflects your personal sense of style.
One of the reasons for the timeless appeal of natural stone is its ability to elevate the aesthetics of any room in your house. Natural stone countertops can make a kitchen look stunningly beautiful or provide your bathroom with an opulent feel. Natural stone can also be used to create an accent wall that provides any living space with a statement piece. In addition, natural stone’s durability and versatility ensures you will receive exceptional value that will enhance the enjoyment of your home for years to come.
While the popularity of natural stone is strong as ever, we’re noticing some new trends in 2024 that should inform your upcoming home remodel projects.
We’re seeing an increasing number of homeowners opt for natural stone countertops that have more innovative textures and finishes. Some of the options that are trending include:
In recent years, neutral tones were very popular. But now, we’re starting to see a move towards more adventurous colors with natural stone features. Whether you’re using natural stone for a kitchen countertop, fireplace surround, accent wall or kitchen backsplash, bold, vibrant colors will add a touch of personality that makes your feature stand out.
Some of the bold colors that are trending right now include:
We’re also seeing a rise in popularity of bold veining and patterns in natural stone applications. Just as striking colors will make your countertop or accent wall stand out, so will prominent veining and eye-catching patterns.
Bookmatching, a technique that creates symmetrical patterns by aligning two or more slabs in a mirror image layout, is extremely popular right now. Bookmatched stone is a great option for accent walls, shower walls, bar tops and fireplace surrounds, giving your home a statement piece that will leave guests commenting on its stunning beauty and elegant design.
One of the common themes among these trends is a desire for stone features to stand out. Another way homeowners are achieving this goal is by mixing and matching different natural stones. This approach creates contrasting colors, textures and patterns that can be truly eye-popping.
Some popular combinations include mixing marble and slate slabs or granite and limestone slabs. A variety of semiprecious stones are used in this manner too. The options for natural stone combinations are virtually limitless, and this technique will give your home something that is truly one of a kind.
Large format, oversized stone slabs are also trending this year. They reduce the seams on kitchen and bathroom countertops, creating a cleaner look.
