2017 Design Trends (Soapstone and Quartz Countertops)

It’s another year and another list of what is in and what is out in 2017! Honestly, like a little black dress, as long as you keep your overall kitchen and bathroom design classic, you are sure to never go out of style. Below is a list of what is hot for this year in design and countertops:

  • Warmth is back
  • Tuxedo Kitchens                                                                                                
  • Mixed Metals
  • Go Geo!
  • Soapstone is Hot
  • Quartz is still on Top


  • Warmth is back in! The past few years have been really grey and some designers almost think too grey.  This color is considered a neutral and will never fully be out of style, but this year think griege!  Yes, grey is going to take on a warmer hue along with accent colors like greens, oranges, and reds.  Here are some of our top colors of the new year
  • Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore: One of the most popular colors for designers, you can’t go wrong with this color choice. A true warm grey, it works great in any room.  When in doubt, go Revere Pewter
  • Farrow Grey by Farrow and Ball: Another old world classic greige brought to you by Farrow and Ball. In general, this is some of the best paint you will ever use.
  • Hazy Skies by Benjamin Moore: If you are looking for a lighter greige, then this is a perfect color. Great for rooms that receive less natural light
  • Perfect Greige by Sherwin Williams: I guess you can’t go wrong with this color, because um..well..it is perfect!


  • Tuxedo kitchens are in! A classic black and white kitchen never goes out of style, but currently, it is taking over the trend of the stark white kitchen.  White shaker cabinets and a painted black island are a beautiful contrast.  Homeowners are completing the look with marble,  quartz, soapstone, and/or wood countertops.

Black islands are back!

  •  Mixed Metals! No longer is matchy-matchy a must.  Now you can mix it up and have fun. Bronze, brushed nickel, chrome, and even brass can be combined to give you a unique and stunning look to your kitchen or bathroom.


  • Go Geo! Geometric patterns are in especially hexagonal tile for kitchen backsplashes and bathrooms.  Also, taking your tile to the ceiling is a thing.  Not only does it make the space look larger, but also more dramatic!


  • Soapstone is hot!  Soapstone countertops are on the rise. This nonporous stone requires minimal upkeep. You can wax or oil it depending on the look you would like to achieve.  The most popular colors right now are grey and black with minimal veining.


  • Quartz is still on top!  Caesarstone, Cambria, and Silestone  are all coming out with some beautiful colors for countertops.  You are getting to where you can’t tell if a countertop is marble are not. Check out Brittanicca by Cambria

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
