One of the biggest kitchen trends we are predicting for next year is the use of slab materials on cabinetry!

Cosentino makes this possible with their super thin 0.4cm Dekton material. For those that are not familiar with Dekton, here’s a quick graphic that covers all of it’s highlights!

We started searching online through their colorways and stumbled across this beauty:

It’s absolutely stunning and our jaws dropped when we saw the Laurent colorway. Inspired by the natural stone, Port Laurent, Cosentino’s Laurent has a striking beauty that commands the room!

Pictured above is an image of actual Port Laurent marble. Cosentino nailed it with their take on this material… don’t you think?!

The Laurent was actually the first material we had selected in our kitchen because we loved it so much.

Since it comes 0.4cm thick, we lined the entire chef’s wall in this material: on the cabinetry faces, countertop, and backsplash for a seamless look.

Here, you can see that we mixed the Laurent with painted slab cabinetry as well. We used participating sponsor, Sherwin Williams, Black Magic to act as a subtle backdrop and let Laurent really shine.

Not only did this create a seamless look, it creates surfaces that are easy to clean. This was key in our design process, as now more than ever, people are paying attention to surfaces that can easily be sanitized and wiped down.

For the islands, we wanted to do a different color, but again, we didn’t want to take away from the perimeter accent. We decided on two colors because we thought the mixture was an intriguing juxtaposition.

We wanted another natural stone look, but nothing to compete with the dramatic veining of Laurent and found the perfect fit with Bromo!

Bromo is modeled after slate and has such a beautiful undertone. It’s not too harsh, like concrete, and does not compete with the delicate beauty of Laurent.

We wanted to add in some warmth with another material and fell in love with Odin!

Odin has the look of a walnut butcher block without any of the maintenance or wear and tear and is super easy to clean! The combination of the two materials, Bromo and Odin, makes for an exceptionally interesting island!

You can also see from this image that we created planter boxes in the Solarium. We used Fossil because it looks like natural stone with little fossils in it!

If you’re looking for a durable and beautiful product, Dekton by Cosentino is such a great choice! We would use their products in our own personal kitchen any day.

Our home was originally built in the 60s and had already been through a remodel in the 80s. It had good bones but they were hard to see under the later revisions. Ariana’s team went straight to the elements that needed to be preserved and highlighted them. The kitchen/dining room has been opened up amazingly and we’re very happy with it. In addition to the design efforts, we really value the 3-D renderings. It makes it much easier to talk with tradespeople about what we want to be done and how, and prevents miscommunications. Five stars for the Honeycomb team!
