When a homeowner has decided to renovate their kitchen, it can be a difficult choice to make when it comes down to deciding which colour you would like for the kitchen worktop. Ultimately, the decision comes down to more than just a simple style choice as you will be living with it for many years and the colour of the kitchen worktop can also affect practicality, as you will read below.
This overview will give you some of the best tips on how you can choose the right colour for your kitchen worktops. Hopefully this guide will make the decision process a lot easier for you too.
Choosing a Colour
Firstly, you should be thinking of whether you are wanting to go for a whole change, including colour theme throughout the kitchen which includes accessories, or whether the worktop colour is getting chosen first and then the rest.
It is much harder to find a kitchen worktop colour to match existing accessories than it is to choose your worktop colour first, as that will be the focal point of your kitchen. You will want the kitchen worktop colour to match your accessories, so you need to think about your overall colour theme first which will make the whole process much easier.
Of course, when it comes down to choosing the colour and pattern for the worktop you need to find one that matches your own style and personality. Do not ever pick a colour based on someone else’s opinion or based on what is trending at the time, as you want to be happy about it for years to come.
Something else to consider is the size of your kitchen. If you have a small kitchen then by choosing a colour wisely you can give the illusion that your kitchen is much bigger than it is. By choosing a light colour such as white it will bounce light around the room creating this illusion for you, however if you have a much bigger kitchen then this can still occur and result in your room appearing far too big.
Cleanliness is a main factor when redecorating any part of your home, especially the kitchen as it is a high traffic area where food is prepared. While a non-porous material will help keep it clean, choosing a colour wisely will help keep it looking clean. If you do not want your kitchen worktop to show up every single crumb in existence, then you should steer away from the really light and dark colours. Instead, go for a medium tone colour such as cream, gold, brown and greys.
Lastly, you should be considering different types of stones. Quart is well-known for having the best selection of colours and patterns because it is man made, however that does not mean that the colour for you is not to be found elsewhere. Other stones that you may prefer could still have your perfect colour.
