Design Trend: Statement Countertops


The once humble countertop has undergone quite the image overhaul. It’s transformed from a predominantly functional surface for food-prep and housing appliances, to a focal point in its own right! As the era of DIY design continues to influence style trends, a greater emphasis on bold accents and high-end finishes is steadily rising among homeowners. Lackluster laminate is being ditched in greater numbers for elegant granite and quartz countertops.

Along with the upgrade in quality of materials, switching to quartz countertops means vastly increased style options. Companies like Cambria continue to push creative boundaries and create new, original countertop designs. From subtle, natural color palettes that mimic a sandy beach or babbling brook, to bright navy blue and blazing hot sauce red, there’s a design available to match every style preference.

Browse below through a few of our favorite statement piece and focal point countertops. We’re positive that these strongly styled kitchens are sure to inspire anyone dreaming of making their own countertop upgrade! Still not sure where to get started with your remodel?

Experience Excellence in Surfacing

The countertop, sink and faucet are now in place in our powder room, and they look fantastic! I couldn’t be happier. The installation crew and the plumber did a terrific job. The “lead” guy on the installation crew told me he thought the countertop, sink and faucet that I chose were the best combination he’d seen. That was very nice to hear! Tomorrow we’ll put in the new mirror, towel rack, etc. It’s been a lot of fun to see each change go in. Many thanks to you and all the crew members for your help in giving our 1990 bathroom a much fresher look, and for getting it all done before Thanksgiving. Have a great weekend and a very happy holiday season!
