Granite is the material of choice for kitchen countertops in most homes today. While it may have some drawbacks, its beauty outweighs the negatives. Granite Transformations, a leader in granite, offers a gorgeous look without the demolition and installation headaches associated with ordinary slab granite. It’s core product line is Trend Stone, which makes granite countertops for kitchens and bathroom vanities, and outperforms ordinary granite because the products are non-porous, stain resistant and virtually maintenance-free.

Following are several trends for 2014 that Granite Transformations has predicted.

Going Green: Consumers are continuing to be more environmentally conscious by incorporating sustainable elements into their home design. In an effort to reflect this eco-friendly movement and advancing green practices. Granite Transformations has partnered with Kohler to create Terra Chiara and Terra di Siena, a line of countertop surfaces that feature varying flecks of gold, brown, black and white and are made with up to 51 percent of Kohler repurposed and pre-consumer porcelain products.
Seeing Red: Vibrant colors will be a hit with both homeowners and designers this year. Adding a splash of red or hints of other bright hues with mosaic tile will add flair and character to any room.
Let The Sun Shine: Reflective tile backsplashes and light granite countertops will give kitchens the illusion of more light and space.
Back to Earth: Incorporating earth tones into the kitchen will lend an air of tranquility and serenity.
Mixed Metals: Lustrous countertops with metallic influences such as silver fixtures and accents complemented by a mosaic backsplash with 24k gold tiles will add a touch of glamour to any bathroom.

Whether you are thinking of purchasing a new home this year or remodeling an existing home, you might want to consider these trends for 2014.
