The Future of Countertop Design: A Sneak Peek into the NEXTadventure™ Home

Back in the day, people judged the quality of your kitchen by the countertops. Cool countertops mattered. Formica was frugal while granite was frou-frou.

Nowadays we’re not limited to using horizontal surfaces as an expression of design quality. From backsplashes to mud rooms, modern countertops can add tremendous value to any home, while offering a dynamic, useful space that works for the homeowner.

Today’s countertop technology opens up a whole new world of materials, looks, and sizes. And now we’re thinking about all kinds of other places that we can work eye-catching, high-functioning countertops into every room in the house: kitchen, bathroom, laundry/room, outdoor living spaces.

The countertops going in The NEXTadventure™ Home are manufactured by Cambria, and we’re in love with them, of quartz!

The depth of the patterns, color variations, and unusual sizes make this a great material to work with. It’s got all of the durability to hold up to even the most passionate chef. It’s harder than most countertops, and will not leave a water ring. It looks like real marble, but with a thinner profile and is much easier to care for.

Thinking about updating your kitchen, bath, or other work area? Get creative with the wide variety of modern countertops that give your home a photo finish.

We’re playing with the latest in countertop design as part of The NEXTadventure™ Home, a project that showcases the most exciting things in interior design, all inspired by folks 55 and better. We’re so excited to show you how high-end lines can be one of the best investments in your home. Show us your top design ideas on Twitter at @taylor_morrison. We’d love to know what you’re up to. Watch the progress of The NEXTadventure™ Home using #nextadventurehome.
