If you are planning a kitchen or bathroom renovation, you will soon need to think about counter top colour. Today, thanks to advancements in counter surfacing, far more options are available for surfaces and kitchen cabinets these days than ever before. Rather than being limited to specific colours of stone or certain types of wood, you have a massive diversity of options to choose from across including counter top colour, finish, and pattern.
Choosing the Best Counter Top Colour
With so many available choices, it is not always as easy as it seems to decide on a counter top colour. There are many things to consider, from the colour of your walls all the way to the colour of the counters themselves and your overall preferences. To help make this decision simpler, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Determine your colour palette
Start by choosing a colour palette for your counters and surfaces. Consider the colours used throughout the rest of the room and property. If the colours in other rooms tend to veer towards black and white, then it would make sense to continue this scheme throughout the kitchen and bathroom, too. This ensures a harmonious look that is not jarred by a sudden change in colour. Other factors to consider include the décor style of the room and also colour combinations that work well together.
Choose surface colours first
The wide variety of colours, patterns and styles and the installation process makes it often easier to match counters to the colour of counter tops rather than the other way around. With that in mind, it is best to choose your counter top colour first and then the counter colour. If you are choosing counter tops for a two tone kitchen, it helps to keep in mind how you typically use this room. As eye-catching as a white counter top could be, it may not be a practical choice in a family kitchen.
Stick to neutral colours
Finally, it is worth adding that neutral colours are almost always a better choice over trendy or bright colours. Changing counter tops is not as simple as painting a wall or even painting counters themselves. If your counters are solid surface, you will need to think very carefully about the colour. Neutral colours will blend in easily with almost any colour scheme, working well with counters of virtually any style and colour without the risk of clashing.
Taking the time to think about your preferences will make it a lot simpler to choose your dream counter top colour.
