Tips For Choosing The Best Kitchen Countertop Color

Choosing a kitchen or bathroom countertop is one of the most important design decisions you will have to make. This is not only because your countertops make a huge visual impact in any room, but also because of the price it costs to install. As a homeowner, you want to be 100 percent sure you are choosing the right countertops for your home. 

At GMS Werks, we offer quality countertops Omaha homeowners will fall in love with. With over 100 years of experience, we are your countertop Omaha company! We understand that choosing the right countertops can be a difficult decision. Our experts have put together some suggestions on how you can choose the best kitchen countertop color for your home!

Choose a long-term color

Color trends come and go, which is okay when it comes to the color of your walls and furniture. However, when it comes to countertops, you don’t always get the luxury of changing colors whenever you want to. Your personal taste can change over time and the room could be repainted. So, before you decide on a color, ask yourself if you will still love this color in 10-20 years. Choosing a countertop with veins or splashes of your favorite colors could open up more design options down the road!

Do you want matching or contrasting colors?

When designing your kitchen renovation, color coordination should be a main focus. A perfect kitchen design calls for your cabinetry, walls, backsplash and countertops to all look good together. Using the same color, or colors that match each other well is the easiest way to make your kitchen design looks great. You could also experiment around and choose contrasting colors in which you think would be good together. Be sure to look at samples beforehand to ensure you are choosing a color design that is not too overwhelming! 

Consider how you will accessorize your kitchen

Solid-colored countertops are a great option if you want a simple and modern look. However, choosing a solid-colored countertop could be too “simple” if you do not incorporate any other patterns or design elements throughout your kitchen. You should consider what other design elements will be present in your kitchen. Will you be installing a patterned tile backsplash? Will you be adding any fabric accents? These are all things to consider when choosing the color of your kitchen counters!


Lastly, before making a final decision on the color of your new countertops, you should consider the lighting in the room. Light has the ability to change the way certain colors look. Some colors may look different in natural light than they do in artificial light. With this in mind, if your kitchen sees a large amount of natural lighting, darker countertops will bring balance and a calming effect
