Choosing natural stone countertops makes a lot of sense. Still, you might get hung up on color choices. Should you go with something white or dark? There are many great reasons for both, but dark counters can make your kitchen stand out.
One of the more popular choices among those installing natural stone counters is something lighter in color. However, if you’re a person that wants your home to stand out, dark colored counters could be a great choice for you. The dramatic look a dark color will bring to your kitchen is unique and could increase your home’s value.
If your home is blessed with lots of space in the kitchen, dark colored countertops will give definition to it. The key to making them work is great lighting all around. And, since you’re planning a remodel anyway, lighting is likely a part of your project.
Choosing Light Colored Cabinets
If you’ve got your heart set on white or light-colored cabinets, dark countertops give your room a stunning contrast. Each option helps to bring attention to the other and set your room off with breathtaking drama that sets your home apart.
Countertop Material Options
No matter what material you want for your countertops, you have lots of options. There are stunning choices in quartz, granite, marble and soapstone that would define your room. You won’t be limited in the colors you want to use around the counters as well, so you can let your style come out no matter what you choose.
