Check out more posts from Moss Building & Design


Dear Moss Building & Design,

I am thinking about replacing my kitchen counters, but I want to make sure they do not seem dated. What are some of the kitchen trends for 2016?

Dear Dulles Mom,

These up and coming kitchen counter-trends are becoming more common for homeowners. Regarding color — think white marble or a white quartz that mimics marble. This timeless look not only has a classic feel but you can add an edge of flair by pairing your counters with bold colors and accents.

Regarding style, waterfall countertops, and mitered edges are now in style. We have seen these becoming more and more popular over the years — beveled counter tops have been run out of town by this sleek, modern look. See this look from HGTV.

Finally, synthetic surfaces like Dekton are becoming increasingly popular. While these countertops are much thinner, they are just as functional and usually less pricey than say a white marble or quartz. What you sacrifice in ‘prestige’ you make up for in versatility and customization.
