Unique Dekton Countertop Choices for Your Kitchen or Bath
There’s no shortage of options for countertops to choose from when you remodel your kitchen or the bathrooms in your home; from natural stone surfaces including granite, quartzite and marble to engineered stone, there are a lot of considerations to take into account before choosing the surface that fits your design preferences and lifestyle.
For porcelain surfaces particularly, one of our go-to brands for porcelain countertop applications is Dekton by Cosentino. Dekton’s ultra-compact surfaces are resistant to scratches, stains, abrasions, heat, cold, and UV rays, making them ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. You can also get large pieces of porcelain to create a countertop surface that’s free of seams in a large or oddly sized area.
What you’re sure to appreciate most, however, is that these surfaces are made to look a lot like popular marble and other natural stone surfaces. Whether you want to go light or dark with the countertops in your home, you’ll find that Dekton surfaces pair well with all kinds of traditional and modern looks.
Here are just a few great ways to utilize beautiful and practical Dekton countertop materials in your home.
Light Dekton Countertops
Dekton offers many attractive options to choose from, but if you like the look of light-colored marble-like Calacatta or Carrara, you’re bound to lean toward Dekton’s Aura countertops that have the same white background with pale gray striations. This popular variation provides a clean look for kitchen and bathroom settings, and it pairs well with a variety of kitchen designs.
For example, those who want a contrasting look can pair light countertops with dark wood cabinets, as in this contemporary kitchen. When accented by stainless steel appliances and fixtures, as well as a modern, gray, matchstick tile backsplash, the finished look includes a stark juxtaposition that offers a lot of drama, but ties together nicely. Adding color through accessories could instill even more dimension and visual interest.
You can also opt for modern appeal with two-tone cabinetry, as in this custom craftsman house. Pairing white Dekton countertops with white cabinetry and backsplash around the perimeter of the kitchen makes for a beautifully clean appearance, and placing it atop a dark wood island creates a clear focal point.
You can also create a softer transition with a traditional or modern appeal by skipping the all-white or black-and-white aesthetics. Consider a slightly more traditional appeal with a warm wood tone.
This contemporary kitchen gets a dose of homey appeal by pairing white Dekton countertops with walnut veneer cabinetry and light wood flooring.
You could take a more modern approach with gray cabinets, like in this farmhouse kitchen. This totally modern design borrows both white and gray tones from the countertops and backsplash, with pale gray lower cabinetry and white cabinets above, for a gradient that blends softly and seamlessly from darker to lighter tones as the eye travels upward.
Dark Countertops from Dekton
Although Aura offers a gorgeous, marble-like look, you might prefer a dark countertop surface to a light one. In this case, you’ll find a lot to love about Dekton’s Sirius shade, which features a textured appearance that adds dimension and character to any room in your home.
How can you utilize this surface? As with lighter Dekton countertops, you can opt to contrast this surface with other elements in your kitchen or bathrooms or choose a subtler look with wood-toned cabinetry.
If you like the drama of contrast, you’ll get it in spades when you pair Sirius countertops with white cabinetry, as seen in this traditional kitchen. Sandwiched between white cabinets and a white, subway tile backsplash, the dark countertop stands out and visually divides the lower and upper planes of the kitchen.
The textured surface adds even more eye-catching appeal and contrasts with the smooth surfaces throughout the rest of the space. Stainless steel appliances and hardware finish the look by providing a transitional neutral to soften the juxtaposition of dark and light.
You might like a softer, more relaxed look, however. If so, this modern farmhouse style New York kitchen is probably more your speed. Although the dark Dekton countertop surfaces, dark ceramic floor tiles, and gray subway tile backsplash all skew modern, the contemporary feel is offset by rustic, reclaimed barn wood cabinetry and shelving, as well as a brick wall on one side.
The copper farmhouse sink provides a surprising addition to the space that helps to tie together the old and new, not to mention the many warm colors in the space. While it doesn’t seem like these disparate elements should marry well, the overall outcome is a welcoming and visually diverse kitchen space that is uniquely appealing.
When you choose Dekton countertops for your kitchen or bathrooms, whether you opt for light or dark hues, you’ll enjoy endless options to style it to your personal delight, and potentially create a design that looks much like natural stone with a lot of practical and aesthetic benefits.
