New York Kitchen and Bath Countertop Design Guide

If you’re in the market for a new countertop but aren’t sure where to start with choosing the material, color, design, or style, the latest New York kitchen, and bath design trends can be the ideal source for inspiration.

New York Kitchen and Bath Trends for Countertops

When you’re looking for a countertop material that is durable, beautiful, affordable, luxurious, or all of the above, reading up on the trends making headlines is a great place to start.

The most frequently asked question by far when it comes to countertops is, “What kind of material should I choose for my countertops?” followed by “How do I pick   and cabinet colors that work well together?”

The Most Popular Countertop Materials

Most of the New York kitchen and bath trends that are related to countertops mainly have to do with the types of material that are trending.

Quartzite and Quartz

Rounding the corner of 2022 going into 2023, quartzite and quartz are the most popular choices for homeowners’ countertops, and there are a lot of good reasons for that. Both materials are natural, super durable, easy to clean, and available in a dizzying array of design and color options.

What’s the difference between quartz and quartzite, and which should you choose for your countertops? The prices are generally within the same range, and although quartzite isn’t quite as low-maintenance or stain-resistant as quartz, it’s still more so than other types of natural stone.


Marble is another popular natural stone that is a top choice for homeowners who enjoy superior luxury and unique style in their kitchens. When it comes to New York kitchen and bath trends, marble has real staying power. It’s been a favorite for decades, and it’s easy to see why when you look at bathrooms like this one in New York!

The popularity of marble lies in its exotic allure and the fact that every single piece in the world is unique. No two slabs are ever the same because of patterns, veining, colors, and source location.

Marble is a staple for luxury kitchens. It has unique veining, it’s resistant to heat, it can add quite a bit of value to homes, and it’s incredibly durable with regular, proper maintenance and sealing.


Another staple of New York kitchen and bath design is granite. While slightly less expensive than marble, it’s also slightly more prone to imperfections. These imperfections, however, are considered by most people to be the quality that sets granite above other types of stone for countertops.

These days, it’s all about the slab of granite that a homeowner finds to suit their aesthetic goals. The most popular granite options in New York heading into 2023 are those that are lighter in color. Multi-color granite, as seen in this jaw-dropping New York countertop,  is also in high demand.

Granite offers a wonderful array of benefits and advantages over many other materials used for countertops in kitchens and bathrooms. Granite is extremely durable, and it’s very easy to clean, too. One of its best features for homeowners who want it in their kitchens is its high level of heat resistance.

Because granite slabs are all wildly unique, this natural stone is available in limitless varieties of patterns and color options. Finally, many people love granite for its historic reputation for unsurpassed luxury and beauty!

New York Kitchen and Bath Trends: Colors

Whether you’re searching for countertops for the kitchen or the bath, you’ll need to consider color options in order to choose a look that complements the cabinetry and overall style of the room. Most of all, it’s vital that you consider the color of your cabinets in relation to the color of the countertops and vice versa.

Light Countertops with Light and Dark Cabinets
