A well-chosen countertop not only enhances your kitchen’s aesthetics, but also makes the whole space more useful and easier to maintain. A wide variety of materials are available in the market, which is why you must first take several factors into account before making your selection. Here are some of the most popular styles.
Only manufactured countertop materials that are known for their minimal maintenance and stain resistance have this particular color. These include Caesarstone® and Corian. It is often effective in smaller kitchen spaces and is also a great fit in a contemporary kitchen aesthetic. A pure white countertop can be combined with another design element with the same color or of a lighter hue to create an illusion of a bigger space.
A large kitchen that does not have a lot going on in terms of visual appeal can benefit from this countertop style. A countertop material that has bold veins on the surface can become one of the primary focal points of the whole space. The key here is to integrate it seamlessly into the rest of the kitchen’s design without becoming too overwhelming.
Dark or Black
A dark-colored countertop can range from black to charcoal. For a more harmonious look and feel for your kitchen, consider matching it with a more colorful element like a cabinet or mirrored backsplash. If you intend to stick on a dark-on-dark theme without making it look gothic and dreary, make sure you illuminate the whole space with enough natural and artificial lighting.
