2021 natural stone trends

Natural stone trends are very popular and are always changing from year to year. If you want your home to be trendy you want to keep up with all the natural stone trends that are sweeping the interior design world. Natural stone has almost always been popular among interior design, but there are constantly new ways and opportunities to incorporate it into a space. 

Now that we are in 2021, you may be wondering what ways you can use natural stone to spruce up your interior space. From granite to marble to quartzite, we can help you figure out how to use natural stone all while keeping your space trendy.


With everyone having an unprecedented 2020, many people are looking to redesign their space and to get a new environment. This means that lots of people are painting, installing new floors or redesigning their kitchens. For 2021, many designers are predicting that calming features will be what many people gravitate towards. This means calm colors, neutrals and natural features. 

Neutral colors like white, black, tan or pastel shades can help create a calming space when put on the walls. It is also said that features that are natural can make us feel calmer. This means plants, wood and natural stones. Consider using these color choices when painting your space and going with a natural stone for your new countertops. Finish off the space by decorating it with some plants and you’re good to go! 

Kitchen islands

Islands have always been standard in kitchens that have the space for them. Islands are an awesome way to create more space for eating and cooking. You can also use them for storage if you are struggling to find room anywhere else. A well-designed and well-placed island can make all the difference when it comes to using your kitchen space. 

For 2021, there is a new twist being put on the typical island and that is multi-level islands. This can really add character to your kitchen space and is a great way to separate the two uses. The higher space can be used for cooking and the lower space can be used for eating. You can even consider getting taller stools and reversing those heights! There is so much you can do with a beautiful, natural stone, multi-level island! 

Accent pieces

Though we’d love to fill every home with natural stone from head to toe, that isn’t quite plausible. Another great way to use natural stone is in small doses around the space. Natural stone will always be popular when it comes to interior design and using these materials for little accents is a great way to incorporate it. This means you can use it to create coffee tables, sinks, fireplaces, arches, lamp bases, candlesticks and anything else you can dream up! This will give the feeling of natural stone that you are looking for, without overwhelming the space.
