It’s not an exaggeration to think of the kitchen as one of the most important rooms in your home. If you’re looking to upgrade your home, redoing your countertops is an easy way to add some eye-catching appeal to the kitchen. If you’re going to do a kitchen remodel, you want to make sure that your kitchen countertops match up with other aspects of your kitchen. Below are some tips to keep in mind when selecting new countertops for your kitchen.
1. Think About Your Color Palate
When you walk into a showroom, you can quickly become overwhelmed by the various color options. You can narrow down some of the confusion by picking out your palate of colors before you start shopping. Try picking three colors, two that will work for the main components and one to use for accents.
Sticking to a color palette helps you coordinate the look of your entire kitchen. It also prevents you from picking kitchen countertops that clash with everything else in the room. Make sure your color palette includes the color of your kitchen floor.
The color scheme for your cabinet should blend in well with the aesthetic of the rest of your home. If you’re planning on selling your home at some point, you don’t want potential buyers to find the vibe of your kitchen jarring in comparison to the rest of your house. Countertops go a long way toward setting the mood for your kitchen décor.
2. Coordinate Your Cabinets With the Countertops
It would help if you kept things simple for your cabinets. That gives you more room to go with a bolder choice when it comes to your countertops. Stone countertops made of granite, marble, or sandstone come in various colors. Think about how variations your stone choice match up to the color of your cabinets. Make sure that the accent colors you choose work to bind your countertops and cabinets together.
It’s not just about the colors. You want to make sure different textures work together to achieve your desired aesthetic. The order in which you purchase kitchen component options matters. It’s a good idea to choose your countertops first, then make your cabinet selection based on that. If you already have your desired cabinet option in place, make sure that your countertops’ colors and texture work with what’s already in place.
3. Pay Attention to Lighting
Lighting is a critical aspect of kitchen redesign that many people forget about until it’s too late. Ask for samples of kitchen countertops that you like. Bring them home and look at how it looks under your kitchen lighting during the day and night.
If your cabinets are already in place, hold the sample countertop material up against them to make sure they complement each other. If you love the countertop sample but don’t like how it appears under your lighting, that may be something you want to upgrade as well.
