When it comes time for a kitchen redesign, your worktops will play a significant role in your kitchen’s look and functionality. Granite and quartz worktops make for some of the best looking, durable, and most versatile worktops for kitchens and will give any kitchen a smooth, modern look and appeal.

Choosing the perfect colour for your worktops may seem like a simple task, but it requires proper planning and some design knowledge. Here are a few tips to help you choose the perfect colour to make the best choice for your kitchen worktops.

Think About the Lighting

The first thing you should consider when choosing a colour for your kitchen worktops is the lighting in the room. If your kitchen doesn’t have large windows and lights for bright lighting, consider lighter colours for granite worktops such as grey, white, or beige. Darker coloured worktops require strong lighting to bring out its beauty.

Get Lots of Samples

You should get lots of samples of colours that interest you to get an idea of how they’ll look in your kitchen. Choose samples that will go with the lighting in your kitchen and complement your cupboards and appliances.

Ask a Pro

A sure-fire way to ensure that your worktops will look their absolute best and make your kitchen a thing of beauty is to get professional help. It’s a good idea to meet with a designer or speak with a representative from where you’re purchasing your worktops and get their opinions on colours that interest you.

Go Light or Dark

Going with light or dark worktops is a great way to ensure they’ll enhance and compliment any colours in your kitchen. Keep in mind that some colours work best for larger kitchens, and other colours are more suitable for smaller ones. For example, lighter-coloured worktops tend to maximize smaller kitchens’ lower light levels and create the illusion of more space. You should also consider that light colours such and white and grey are more timeless than darker and more trendy colours like black, deep reds, or dark blue.

Combine Light and Dark

When you combine darker worktops with lighter coloured cupboards or vice versa, you bring out the beauty and appeal of both worktops and cupboards. Combing light and dark colours are an excellent way to ensure your countertops are the perfect colour for your kitchen.
