The color scheme can make or break your kitchen remodeling project. Certain color palettes can reduce one’s appetite, ruining the mood during dinner. That’s why you need to put a lot of thought into choosing the right color scheme.
To help you get started, here are some tips on choosing a color for your kitchen countertop, a central feature of any modern kitchen.
Avoid Matching the Color of Your Countertop to the Wall Paint
The problem with matching the color of your countertop to your wall is it leaves you less design flexibility the next time you want to remodel your kitchen. Adding splashes or accents of a different color can make it easier to tweak your kitchen during your next custom kitchen remodeling project. Remember: Trends come and go, so it’s best to leave yourself a bit of wiggle room when it comes to design.
Design Tip: Solid-color countertops look great in a modern kitchen, but might look too cold for some homeowners. Add backsplashes with patterns or wallpaper to provide balance design-wise.
Don’t forget your kitchen cabinets. The kitchen cabinets are installed just above the countertop, so they can provide much-needed balance to your kitchen’s color scheme. However, mixing and matching colors and patterns can be tricky, which is why it’d be a good idea to consult a cabinet refacing expert.
Visit a Showroom Before Finalizing the Design
Don’t rely on pictures alone—several factors, including sunlight, can affect how a particular hue or shade looks. It’s best to make a decision after heading to your local hardware store or showroom where you can collect paint strips and wood samples.
