Choosing a Countertop Color: Essential Tips

Choosing a Countertop Color Rock Tops Fabrication

Choosing a countertop color that’s neutral ensures that you can make many style changes to your home without the colors clashing

Choosing the perfect countertop has many considerations. You have to consider its material, edge, finish, but the color of the countertop is also a factor that you shouldn’t overlook. Because kitchen countertops and bathroom vanities are features that are going to be around for a long time, you should be satisfied with your choice undeniably. Factors that come into play are your style preferences, how you use (and how often you use) your countertop, and the overall style of your home. Here are a few essential tips that will help you navigate through using a countertop color. 

Stick to A Color That Complements Many Style Changes in Your Home

If your walls are blue, gray, or silver, you may think that a blue Macabus quartzite countertop will be a fabulous choice for a countertop color, and it is! However, if you’re a homeowner that likes to change the paint in their home every few years, you may want to consider neutral colors. Neutrals blend in with any color scheme. Interior designers and fashion experts alike may argue that some shades of blue are neutral. Still, if your style is classic and less eccentric, then we always recommend neutral colors. What’s excellent is that countertops can come with veins and splashes of color for a subtler look. Did you know that you don’t have to seal dark granite countertops as often (only every 3-5 years!)? 

Consider the Undertones of a Room

Undertones don’t just apply to cosmetics. They also apply to the elements of a room. Depending on the coloring of your cabinetry and flooring, specific colors will clash completely. For a reference of what colors work well together, you can always refer to the color wheel. Or another rule of thumb that many homeowners follow is that if your cabinetry and flooring are dark or light, the countertop color should match that theme. 

Always Look at Samples

We have many samples of countertop color choices on our website. You can also enjoy looking at various samples in our stunning showroom. It’s not enough to say, “I want a black countertop.” Countertops come in various rich textures and colors. Our custom fabrication skills ensure that no slab has to look the same. Two black countertops can look completely different depending on the finish that you choose. In other words, a matte countertop looks different than a polished finish.
