When it comes to redesigning a kitchen space, a lot of thought and effort has to go into the process. If you make a mistake because you didn’t think everything through, it is not only going to be time consuming, but it is going to cost you more money than you planned for too.
Not only do you have to think of a general layout and design, but you also have to shop around for the general make up of the kitchen space, such as cabinets, tables, chairs, wallpaper, paint, etc. One particular area that you need to pay extreme attention to is the kitchen countertop choice you decide upon.
A kitchen countertop needs to be decided upon properly, because otherwise you run the risk of needing to replace it ahead of time, and this is not a particular cheap area to be looking at!
Once you have identified the type of kitchen countertop you like however, provided you have done your homework, you will have a long lasting and attractive result. If you choose classic quartz slabs, you are also looking at a very easy to look after choice, because this is the only type of natural stone which really requires zero maintenance after the initial installation.
So, you’ve settled upon classic quartz for your countertop, but what colour are you going to go for?
To help you in your choice, here are five of the most popular classic quartz slab colour choices around.
This is one of the most classic choices around, and a monochrome kitchen has infinite advantages, not least the fact that it is one of the easiest to clean! A black quartz kitchen countertop looks sleek and it looks professional, without being cold or harsh. Provided you team the shade with something which calms it down, such as cream or white, you have a very serviceable and attractive choice on your hands.
Don’t be afraid of white! White classic quartz countertops can look ultra sophisticated, and white doesn’t always have to be just plain white – you can pick a slab which has grains in it, lines, slightly off-white, the choices is yours. This is a great choice for a smaller kitchen, because it will create the illusion of space, and reflect the light.
Some people think that a grey kitchen countertop looks too cold or professional, but there are many ways you can warm grey up, to make it look more sophisticated and homely. The lighter the shade, the more homely it look, but when you pair this with perhaps cream or white again, you are left with a very modern, but very serviceable option.
We are talking about the coffee shades here, such as latte, espresso, or cappuccino. When you have a luxurious coffee shade to your kitchen countertop, the appearance is creamy, homely, and it looks super-sophisticated. You have a lot of choice here in terms of light or dark, with patterns or lines to throw into the mix too.
This is the oceanic kind of vibe, with duck egg blue or a marine colour to lighten up a small space, when combined with cream or white cabinets. This is a very popular option to go for, and one which looks fantastic in a traditional or farmhouse kind of kitchen design.
