As you prepare for a kitchen remodeling project, you’ll likely choose new appliances, cabinets, flooring, and fixtures. Upgrading to granite, quartz, or nano glass countertops will further increase the aesthetic value of the space. You’ll have a variety of designs to choose from, and you can select a custom countertop color that complements your new kitchen with a few tips.
3 Tips for Choosing Custom Countertop Colors
1. Go for Versatility
Your countertops will likely outlast other kitchen features because they’re more durable and permanent. Thus, it makes sense to choose colors that are easy to match if you decide to repaint cabinets or replace the backsplash. For instance, neutral shades — such as cream, slate, and heather — are often accent colors in many backsplash patterns, and they match many different cabinet materials.
2. Consider Surrounding Features
While you may enjoy a particular countertop color in isolation, once you see it in your kitchen, you could realize it clashes with your walls or appliances. Think about how to harmonize the material’s colors with your kitchen’s other features. For instance, select a color from your backsplash, and showcase it by choosing a granite or quartz countertop with undertones in the same hue. You can also ask the retailer for samples, which you can take home to see how the material would blend in with the rest of your kitchen.
3. Consider the Color Wheel
Complementary colors are located directly across from one another on the color wheel. For instance, if you’re looking for an option that pairs with your red walls, custom countertops with a blue-green shade will bring the whole look together. You might also want to use analogous colors, which are right next to one another on the color wheel (e.g., purple and blue), to provide visual interest.
