‘Tis the season!
Fall and winter bring crisp weather and opportunities to celebrate—hosting parties and holiday meals. Garlands and twinkle lights are great, but nothing adds more cheer to a home than a kitchen upgrade with stone countertops and inspired design elements.
Deck Your Home with Beautiful Stone
If you love to host family and friends at your home, an inviting kitchen is a must. Today’s stone choices offer many colors, edges, finishes and, of course, long-lasting durability. There’s no better way to ring in the season than with a splashy stone statement.
Here are 7 festive stone design ideas to make your kitchen the life of the party!
01. Solid Stone Backsplashes
Quartz, marble, granite—oh my! This season, think beyond individual tiles for a backsplash and opt for solid slab of stone. A crisp white marble backsplash flowing with gray veining can be as picturesque as a winter snowstorm.
Wanna really raise the roof? Install a stunning granite piece that runs from your counters all the way up to the ceiling.
02. Custom Stone Vent Hoods
While you’re making the holiday feast, give your guests something gorgeous to gaze at. A custom stone vent hood over the stove provides a striking focal point. Depending on your aesthetic, you could go with a simple, contemporary cut, or a more elaborate Tuscan design.
03. Built-In Coffee Bar
Love catching up with visiting friends and family over a cup of joe? Use stone to surround your own coffee station in your kitchen. Granite or quartz can be crafted into a cozy tea nook, and don’t worry – they’re resistant to coffee stains.
04. Butler’s Pantry
If you’re a consummate entertainer, you need a quality space to store your serving dishes and prep cocktails. Natural stone is perfect for a splendid Butler’s pantry, sleek, modern countertops or a rustic backsplash.
05. Creative Island Design
Company always gathers around an island in the kitchen. An impressive piece of marble or granite atop your island is essential. Go beyond a standard stone countertop for your island creative built-in elements such as shelves, or a custom marble pet bowl station (with a faucet!) for your pooch. After all, pets love to gather in the kitchen with you and your guests!
06. Waterfall Countertops
One of the biggest trends in kitchen design is a waterfall counter crafted from natural stone. Cascading marble from an island gives the dramatic effect of continuous elegance…and never-ending good times!
07. Deck Out the Dining Room
Why should show-stopping design stay in the kitchen? A stately marble accent wall can add an air of opulence to any event.
