There are endless possibilities when it comes to what’s hot and what’s not, so we’ve provided a list of some of the top trends in countertops for 2017.

White on White

Stunning white or light granite countertops combined with white painted cabinets makes for a huge trend this year and the preference for white cabinets continues to soar. When combined with lighter hue granite, it makes for a distinct look that is durable and low-maintenance, perfect for the kitchen or bathroom. It creates a soft, welcoming environment that looks clean and organized. And, when properly sealed, like with Minneapolis Granite, these countertops are stain resistant.


Kitchen Islands

No matter what style or color granite countertops and cabinets you choose, kitchen islands remain the most popular in interior design. No longer just an afterthought, many choose to match their island exactly with the rest of their kitchen countertops and plan them well in advance. Islands not only add more counter space, they are great for other activities in the kitchen such as entertaining guests or talking over breakfast.

Curves and Edge Detailing

There are plenty of choices when it comes to getting creative with granite. Bold sweeping curves mixed with vertical lines create a stunning contrast as well as a focal point in the room. And, there are plenty of choices when it comes to edge detail. Bull nose, ogee and waterfall edge treatments can all give an added element of elegance to your granite countertops.


Coming Up Roses

Pair your warm and rosy color detailed granite with your white or neutral wood cabinets for stylish appeal.
