Identifying the undertones in the room is the best place to start in choosing a stone benchtop colour. Have a look around your kitchen to determine the wood tones of your cabinets or the paint colours on your walls. Depending on your preferred colour scheme, you can choose complementary colours (such as dark cabinets with a lighter benchtop) or tone-on-tone, which keeps the colours within the same family. Mood boards and colour swatches are a handy tool to understand what works and what doesn’t.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT COLOURS
Choosing the correct stone benchtop colour is easier than you may think. Here are some simple steps to creating a beautiful kitchen:
– Select a cabinet colour
– Choose flooring and a stone benchtop colour that blends with the hues of your cabinet selection with just enough pop and contrast to pull it all together.
Neutral coloured kitchen cabinet doors would work well with a mix of light brown, white or gray coloured benchtops.
Darker coloured cabinet doors look beautiful with lighter stone benchtops, like a neutral shell mix, white or ivory. Although white benchtops remain a kitchen classic, a popular modern choice is a dark grey or black stone benchtop to tone in with similar dark coloured kitchen cabinets.
For homeowners who are looking for an elegant, sophisticated kitchen, choosing a complementary stone benchtop color is their best bet. Here are some examples:
– White kitchen cabinet doors are the perfect backdrop to give you free reign to choose your favourite colour combination. Let your creativity be your guide.
– Two or three-toned cabinets – today’s homeowners are switching things up by using different coloured cabinets in their kitchens. Whether it’s different upper and lower colours or an island showcasing darker cabinets in a white kitchen, the only thing to keep in mind is that your benchtop colour blends with both.
When considering appliances, stainless steel looks great with deeper, saturated colours and helps reflect light to make the colours feel even bolder.
