Orange County Kitchen Remodeler; Newport Beach Trends for Kitchen Design – Countertops…SKD Studios checks out some new trends for countertops and it’s not just granite!

Once upon a time homeowners looking for a high end great looking counter top looked to their local kitchen and bath dealer and found granite.  The market has gotten a little granite fatigue and homeowners are looking for something different.   Even if your aren’t ready to completely gut the kitchen a quick change of the counter top can really change the entire space. At SKD Studios we have listed a few of our favorites that you should make sure to check our for your next kitchen remodel in Orange County.


wood countertops add such a level of luxury and tradition to your space.  There are so many different wood species from Black Walnut to an exotic Zebra Wood.  The beauty of wood is they can cut and shape it anyway you like.  We love for our wood choices.

Marble countertops have been around for years.  They used to be a super high end and very expensive option,  the marbles in the marketplace today are much more affordable.  From the classic gray and white carrara to calcutta gold marbles are definitely a countertop to check out.


Pourfolio Custom Concrete – San Diego

Concrete countertops are starting to emerge as a hot kitchen countertop trend.  The look and feel of concrete is both sleek and warm.  Depending on the color additive and the edge detail, the countertop can fit a wide range of design styles.  Make sure to find a concrete fabricator that has experience in fabricating countertops.  One of the things that I love about the use of concrete is the way the sinks can be fully integrated.  The look is really high end and it works wonderful for a kitchen but I especially love the look of an integrated sink in the bathroom.
