2018 Design Trends

Happy New Year from all of us at Pental Surfaces!

The internet is full of predictions for the New Year and we are especially excited to see what design industry experts believe will be huge in 2018. The editors at Architectural Digest have weighed in on the Trulia Design Panel’s Home Décor predictions for 2018 and they agree that inspiring things are yet to come. Look no further than Pental Surfaces to stay on trend with 3 of their predicted design elements in 2018 and beyond.

#1 Marble and Quartz are in.

While granite will always be a classic and durable surface for kitchens and baths, experts seem to agree that Marble and Quartz are now in vogue for superior beauty and a more modern look. We recently released 6 new and trending PentalQuartz colors that are in line with this design evolution.

For the one of a kind look of marble, we provide an extensive collection of imported slabs including Calacatta Marble (below), as featured on our blog.  As with any natural stone, every slab of marble is unique and one-of-a-kind, bringing the organic beauty of the earth to any setting.

View our available inventory of marble slabs online or stop into one of our showrooms to see our collection for yourself.

 #2 Patterns are in.
Taking a cue from the world of fashion, mixing patterns in décor and in tile is on the up and up. Moving beyond the classic subway tile, there are many modern patterns in our porcelain and ceramic tile offerings that we expect to make waves in 2018. Experts predict that midcentury patterns in textiles and porcelains will continue to be popular in the New Year alongside Geometric patterns, 3D tiles and organic natural stone. Get the look with one of our many cutting-edge, patterned tile offerings.
