3 Tips for Choosing a Kitchen Countertop Color, West Haven, Connecticut

With so many countertop colors available, it can be difficult to decide on one for your kitchen remodeling project. However, in addition to picking a quality material, selecting the right color will have a major impact on the overall appearance of the room. Here are a few tips for deciding on a color that will achieve the look you want. 

How to Select a Countertop Color

1. Choose Two Different Colors

One option to consider is choosing one color for the island and another for the rest of the kitchen countertops. With this method, you can match both the flooring and the cabinets. For example, if the cabinets are maple and the flooring is light oak, choose a gray stone for the island to match the former, and a brown stone to complement the latter.

2. Keep in Mind That Your Tastes May Change

With neutral colors, you won’t have to worry about the countertops clashing with other hues, should your tastes change and you repaint the walls. 

3. Go for a Minimalist Look 

With Scandinavian design becoming increasingly popular in kitchen remodeling projects, many homeowners are opting for pure white countertops. This color will give the room a fresh and contemporary look, and it works well with almost any backsplash, especially more colorful and extravagant ones. If you have a small space, install pure white cabinets, as well. This pairing will give the illusion that the kitchen is larger than it actually is.
