Concrete countertops have recently become more popular. The show Fixer Upper had done a great job of introducing that concept to their viewers.
Katie Bower gave a tutorial on how to makeover your table top and give it a faux concrete top. You would not believe that her table started out a dark brown. If you have a table that is dark and it just isn’t working in your space you might want to consider a similar makeover.
I like the way the lighter top blends in with the space and it seems to fit better. I find myself trending more towards lighter furniture and accents while using some darker pieces to ground the space.
Whatever your style is or whatever you like for your house because regardless of what is trending it matters that you like it and your space reflects you.
