HOUSE SAVVY — Sizzling Surface Fashions

What’s Trending?

The Marble Look

Thick, large-format porcelain slabs or engineered quartz surfaces are non-porous and stain resistant and can closely replicate natural stone at a lower cost.  Pictured:  Porcelain slab countertop by Ceramics of Italy

Easier Update Solutions

Innovative products lend high-end style and exceptional performance without the need for grout or intensive demolition.  Pictured:  Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces’ Wetwall Water-Proof Wall Panel System is an innovative, patented, water-proof solution designed to make bathroom updates easier.

Color Trends 

Soft greens and blues are in while black and grey are used for detail and contrast.   Pictured:  The trick to incorporating green – or planning an entire room design around it – is to treat it like a neutral. Layer it with other neutrals or pop it with color say Moen design experts.

Hot for Hardware

Soft tones of gold are the latest rage.  Pictured:  Golden Champagne hardware by Amerock glows against a grey canvas.

Bookmatched Slabs

Adjoining surfaces that mirror each other are a hot look for countertops and floors.  Below:  Artistic Tile promotes symmetry using bookmatched stone slabs.
