Gorgeous Granite in the Kitchen

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

We hear a lot of talk about the “dream kitchen”, and one element of the dream kitchen that is heard quite often, is granite countertops. There is no mystery why granite is such a popular countertop choice in the kitchen. Not only is it absolutely beautiful, each slab of granite has it’s own particular patterns and designs that are not like any other piece. When you think about it, it’s comparable to the human fingerprint, everyone has their own distinct print. The distinction of granite along with its durability and the variety of colors it is available in make it one of the top choices for dream kitchens today.

Set off Dark Cabinetry with Light Countertops

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

Dark kitchens are not always dreary and depressing. Dark kitchens can be highly stylish, comfortable and relaxed with the right design and materials. Dark kitchen cabinetry is sleek, fashionable and more versatile than people think. So when it comes to matching them up with the right countertop, choosing a light color will set off your dark cabinetry beautifully.

The countertops play a very important role in the kitchen from function to its aesthetic value. The light countertop will reflect light which will expand the space and lighten up the surroundings. The dark toned cabinets will add drama and formailty but the lighter countertops will soften the kitchen and help to finish the overall look of the kitchen.
