34. Warm and Dark Countertops
Austere white marble, granite, and quartz countertops have been all the rage for the past decade, and it’s almost impossible to find a newly built home without them. Silver and icy blue or grey flecks and veining have been the go-to secondary colors, but are quickly being replaced by warmer tones. Marble, granite, and quarts will continue to be incredibly popular due to their excellent properties in the kitchen, but keep an eye open for much darker base tones with warm-hued secondary tones. Butcher block will also make a comeback, with darker base wood. These dark, warm tones will pair beautifully with the 2021 trend of dark blue or warm dark grey cabinets.
