Whether you’re interested in interior design, you’re looking to change up some things in your home or you’re simply shopping around for inspiration for an upcoming renovation, you probably know how frequently trends can change, even when they seem like they’re going to stick around. One of the upcoming trends that’s bound to stick around for a while is the use of gemstone surfaces, specifically in environments like kitchens and bathrooms throughout your home.

No matter what your personal style is, gemstone surfaces have been around for a little while, and they’re bound to last longer than you might expect. From the color exploration to the durability of gemstone surfaces, there are so many benefits to exploring and experimenting with the idea. From quartz to granite, there are so many options for you to choose from.

1.  Exploring Color

Gemstone surfaces are gaining a lot of popularity, and one of the reasons could be the wide array of colors that they allow you to explore. From clear and white quartz countertops to details in dark jewel tones, using gemstone surfaces can allow you to have fun with the color you use in the more permanent surfaces in your home.

2.  Texture Options

Just like different color options, using gemstone surfaces can also give you an array of texture and finish options to choose from. From matte finishes to shiny or even sparkly textures, you can find gemstone surfaces that match your style in any renovation you’re doing.

3.  Easy to Clean

Another huge benefit that might lead gemstone surfaces to outlast other trends is their ease when it comes to cleaning and maintenance. Whether you’re thinking of granite or quartz, they both require little to no upkeep aside from standard cleanings. And with such smooth and solid surfaces, the cleaning process is as easy as pie.

4.  Energetic Benefit

If you’re wondering where the mood-boosting part comes into play, here it is. While some people believe that crystals and gemstones offer inherent energetic benefits like healing and positivity, others simply enjoy calming colors and the benefit of a positive and aesthetically pleasing environment. Whichever camp you fall into, gemstone surfaces can bring lots of healing and energetic balance to any room you’re remodeling. Think about it — an entire kitchen filled with healing clear quartz or grounding granite.

5.  Durability

As opposed to other surfaces, gemstones are durable and can last for many years without having to worry about scratches, nicks and dents. While they might be a bit of an investment, that investment is likely to pay off when you keep them around for years to come.

Gemstone Surfaces in Your Home

Whether you believe in the mood-boosting power of gemstones or you’re looking for an easy, fun and explorative option for your next home renovation project, going for a gemstone surface could be the best way to go. Not only are they durable, but they’re aesthetically pleasing and offer so many options in terms of style. This might be a trend we see sticking around for a while.
