When it comes to pairing countertops with cabinets, this final part of our two-part blog series will round out the general tips we recommend to clients.
Consider What’s in Style
Homeowners are increasingly gravitating toward monochromatic kitchen designs for their clean appeal and simple sophistication. Right now, dark gray cabinets paired with white countertops are a popular look, but we’re also seeing an all-white minimalist approach gaining popularity.
With this approach, homeowners use accessories such as vases or kitchen appliances to add a pop of color and bring the kitchen to life. Regardless of which route you choose, a monochromatic kitchen design is sure to give your home a sleek, modern look that will stand the test of time.
Keep in Mind How Your Home Looks Now
If you’re planning to add a new kitchen island to your home, one of the first things you’ll need to decide is what style island you want. The style should match the rest of your home. If your living room, dining room, and bedrooms all use traditional country-style decor, you might not want to go for such a modern look unless you’re planning to remodel those spaces as well. Instead, pair a red or brown wood-finished cabinet with natural stone countertops.
Alternatively, if your home has a more contemporary feel, you could go for a sleek white or black island. Whatever style you choose, make sure it fits in with the overall aesthetic of your home.
The First Step of Any Project Is Planning
If you’re thinking about remodeling your kitchen, one of the best things you can do is consult with a professional. A local contractor or kitchen remodeling expert can help you turn your vision for the space into a reality. They’ll be able to recommend stone and granite countertops and design ideas that fit with what you’re picturing and make sure that everything comes together in a way that makes sense.
Going into a kitchen remodel with a clear understanding of what you want will help ensure that the final result is something you love. So don’t hesitate to bring in an expert opinion early on in the process – it could make all the difference.
