How Will You Use These Dekton Design Trends in Your Outdoor Living Space?

Thinking about creating or improving your outdoor living space? Here are four big design trends to watch, courtesy of Dekton, one of the leading names in versatile interior and exterior architectural surfaces.

Biggest Dekton Design Trends for a Modern, Functional Outdoor Living Space

Over the last decade, Dekton products have become synonymous with quality, style, and function. Here are four design trends the industry leader says homeowners should keep their eye on.

  1. Applying the Dekton Product in Unique and Varied Ways (It’s Not Just for Kitchen and Bath Anymore!)

One of the biggest trends since the debut of Dekton has been using the product within the same space for multiple applications. 

While many homeowners know Dekton as a name in outdoor countertops, it can actually be used in a variety of ways.

  • Flooring
  • Paving
  • Cladding
  • Custom furniture
  • Shower trays
  • Sinks
  • Facades (commercial or residential)

There are also more and more unique use cases where people install Dekton in places like spas or submerged pool areas.

By not limiting Dekton to one application, homeowners are not only able to get a high-quality product in multiple locations, but from a design standpoint, they can also easily match or complement colors, patterns, and textures. 

  1. Going Thin with Your Dekton Countertops

For a long time in the world of outdoor living spaces, thick countertops were hugely popular. Even when using a material that wasn’t natural stone, it was a way to have that countertop replicate the most sought-after products, including granite.

Over the years, though, homeowners have trended progressively thinner with their countertops.

This has accomplished several things:

  • Created a more subtle, seamless design aesthetic.
  • Given outdoor living spaces a more distinctly modern look.
  • Allowed for a lower price point that fits more homeowners’ budgets.

More and more, clients want seamless and elegant and are trending toward design choices that demonstrate less can be more.


New call-to-action

  1. Using Dekton as Furniture

One of the most unique (and popular) upcoming Dekton trends is incorporating the product into custom furniture.

This can be anything from tables to kitchen doors to bookcases.

Again, being able to use the thin Dekton panels means these pieces can replicate the look of a natural stone—without being as physically hefty or coming with such a significant price tag.

These accent pieces offer high quality and high design appeal while also seamlessly matching or complementing your other Dekton products. 

  1. Reducing (or Eliminating) Seam Lines with Larger Panels

As homeowners trend toward a more minimalistic mindset in their designs, details become especially important. What’s there is understated, and every facet of it needs to be meticulous.

Things like noticeable seam lines (where two panels meet) are increasingly on the outs.

Using a product like Dekton means you have access to large panels. This makes it easier to either eliminate or minimize those connection lines.
