It’s no secret that the colour scheme of your home has a big impact on the way it looks. Gone are the days when bright gaudy colours and patterns are put together. In recent years it’s been all about a minimalist, modern look with a monochrome colour palette. We want our homes to be a tranquil place to relax and a more toned-down aesthetic complements this. Of course, there are plenty of occasions when a bright splash of colour can really bring a room together. When paired with other neutral tones, even the brightest of shades can look classy, and give the space a bit of edge. In today’s blog, we are going to be exploring the world of coloured quartz and granite worktops and how these can completely transform a kitchen.
With most internal property elements you cannot go wrong with white. It’s simple, it’s classy and it matches everything else in the room. White can open up space and make it appear bigger than it is. This shade also gives the appearance of cleanliness when properly maintained, which is perfect for a kitchen. A white worktop looks great with wooden or coloured cupboards. If you’re looking for something extra, a veined or speckled white worktop gives more texture for a unique finish. Like with anything white, the light colour is more susceptible for staining which can be a risk in the kitchen area. Choosing a white quartz worktop is beneficial as this non-porous material resists stains and is easy to maintain.
Pop of colour
If you want to make a statement in your kitchen, a coloured worktop is a fantastic way to create a room which looks sleek and dynamic. Red, in particular, can create a very cool look depending on the other shades in the room. Red and white complement each other and are a middle ground between stylish and bold. If you want to give your kitchen an edge, the combination of red and black looks really effective and will make the space totally unique. The only issue with this combination is the darker colours can make a room look smaller, so if you’re looking to give the impression of more space, consider sticking to lighter colours.
Back to black
You might be afraid to utilise black in your home as this strong shade can be daunting. However, paired with the right colour palette, black can look really elegant and classy. Black worktops with white cupboards is a great combination as these two extremes balance each other out. White veins or speckles on the worktop would complement this look further.
Grey is a happy medium between black and white, allowing you to enjoy the best of both worlds. Whilst not as daunting as black, grey is better at hiding any stains or damage on your worktop. In a busy kitchen, accidents can happen so if this is a concern, grey works as a great middle ground. A muted grey quartz worktop also complements most other colours, working well with black, white or a more statement shade. Similar to white, grey can open up a room and give the illusion of more space.
