Change the Look of your Kitchen with Countertops

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips, slider

The cabinets do play a large role in the kitchen, but right behind them are the kitchen countertops. Many homeowners don’t realize that “the kitchen countertop takes a lead in determining how our kitchen designs will be perceived in terms of color, weight, balance, proportion, scale” – Certified Kitchen Designer Susan Serra 

Your countertops can be the lead in your kitchen design, or it can follow, it simply depends on your preferences. Are you looking to make a bold statement with your countertops? Or are you going for a soft and calming look? You want to make sure you are looking at the kitchen as a whole when you are selecting your countertops.

Remember to visualize the countertops in your kitchen with all the accessories that will be placed on top of them. Are you looking to create a color story with those accessories? Or will they be in contrast to the countertop. For example: a modern, bold, countertop with traditional/eclectic/other accessories. – Serra

But just make sure you do not lose sight of the big picture.
