Natural Stone: Design Ideas
What’s your color style? These six popular natural stone countertop color options will help you achieve the look you want, whether you’re good to go with granite, mad about marble, or flying blind.
Softly veined or lightly flecked white natural stone countertops are one of the most popular choices in both kitchen and bath designs. This snowy shade provides a bright, clean feel, working well in many applications, from traditional to contemporary. Whether you prefer the subtle richness of natural marble or easy-care engineered quartz, you’re sure to find a slab that speaks to you.
Stark white is a favorite in contemporary, modern spaces. Unlike other color options, however, stark white is only available in engineered quartz. Engineered quartz resists stains well with minimal care.
Depending on use, dark countertops can fit in quite well, or imbue a gothic feel. If you’re designing a rich space with dark floors, dark cabinetry, and dark accessories, a dark countertop will blend beautifully. Additional light sources are crucial to avoiding a cavernous feel, however.
A neutral color option, gray countertops are extremely popular this year. And it’s no surprise, as this color works harmoniously in a variety of situations. It’s neither too dark nor too light, pairing well with light, dark, brightly colored, and mixed cabinetry. It hides dirt or the occasional crumbs well as well.
Dramatically veined countertops are best used as the centerpiece of kitchen or bath design, without any other statement colors or features. This helps prevent an overwhelming feel.
