As things start to heat up and we enter the summer months, many are still spending a majority of their time at home, and therefore, there is a need for easy to clean, convenient, and flexible living spaces.
From an aesthetic perspective, kitchen and bathroom design is still following a contemporary and transitional style while adding a “natural” element. Clean lines, minimal details, the texture of natural finishes, and large windows to feel the warmth of the outdoors are becoming important design elements. Earth tones are increasingly desirable in regard to paint, finishes, and countertop choices. At Elements Room, natural stone options such as Patagonia granite, White Pearl, and Taj Mahal quartzites are just a few of the options that satisfy the organic, earth-toned element. Also, homeowners are on the hunt for large-scale backsplashes using a solid slab or long subway tile. This is the perfect opportunity to extend the slab into a backsplash or shop new tile options now available at Elements Room in North Hollywood.
Quartz surfaces, specifically in lighter shades, continue to be a top contender when it comes to selecting countertop material. Since there is a preference for easy-to-clean surfaces, quartz is a perfect choice because it is low maintenance, non-porous, and hygienic. Mixing contemporary colors and materials between countertops and islands is an upcoming trend that can be done using an earth-toned natural stone on one space while using a complementary quartz option on the other.
When it comes to the bathroom, large format shower and tub surrounds are becoming increasingly popular. This trending look can be achieved by using heavy-duty, durable porcelain such as our Pacshore Tech large format slabs (available in 1.2 cm or 2 cm size 126” x 63”) because there are fewer grout lines when you go this route.
