Are your countertops old and outdated? Some countertops never go out of style, while other trends come and go more quickly.
It is suggested to replace your countertops every 10 to 15 years, which is about the lifecycle of style trends. Did you know that a simple fix like new countertops could update your whole kitchen style? Focusing on big pieces, like bold countertops, are a great way to keep your home from looking outdated.
Whether you are remodeling a fixer upper or simply just updating your kitchen, there are many decisions to make. Let us help you out by making your kitchen countertop decision a little bit easier!
Some will shy away from bold countertop choices, but we want to challenge you: step outside of the box to make your countertops a statement piece!
How many people do you know who have gray or white countertops? Why go along with the crowd when you have an opportunity to express yourself through your countertop choices?
Bold countertops, especially dark ones, can seem risky, we get it. But when paired with the perfect pieces, they are harmonious. Dark counters will make your dishes, flowers, and linens pop, while with lighter counters your white dishes might get lost.
Consider choosing dark colors that will make a statement, like blacks and dark blues. Whether you choose matte or glossy, you’re sure to make a statement.
If you like a more crisp, modern look, white might be the right decision for you. But this time let’s make it unique to you. Consider opting for a white that has some interest to it like White Fusion Quartzite that includes swirls of ivory, blues, and reds.
There are so many fun materials to choose from now versus twenty years ago. If you are getting ready to replace an old and outdated countertop, don’t corner yourself into buying the same material yet again. While your previous countertops may have served you well, they aren’t the only one of their kind out there!
Quartz is non-porous, is highly resistant against staining, and is one of the most hygienic countertop options for homeowners.
Quartz countertops have dominated the countertop industry over the years because of their strength, durability, and low maintenance nature. Besides that, there are many quartz options that are sure to make a bold statement!
There are so many different types of quartz to choose from like albedo quartz, sparkling ruby quartz, and the ever popular matte quartz. These bold countertop options are sure to wow your guests!
Wood countertops are a great way to soften up a kitchen space. Wood makes a great, bold, accent countertop, while simultaneously making a bold statement when paired with wooden cabinetry. Whether it’s a little or a lot, wood is a classic look that is less likely to go out of style.
If you are looking for a bold countertop and can’t get away from the granite, we understand. Granite is one of the most durable and beautiful options out there.
But instead of sticking with the same old granite countertops that everyone seems to install, consider going above and beyond by selecting a patterned granite with a twist. Matrix Granite is a gray stone with a more understated design while Amazon granite slabs add a bold pop of green color that could liven up any kitchen.
Bold countertops are simply made better with uniquely thought out accents. Subway tile may not be a thing of the past, but it has definitely evolved. Many homeowners are choosing uniquely patterned and textured tile backsplashes that accent their kitchen countertops beautifully!
We suggest choosing your backsplashes that make you bold countertop choices pop. Whether it’s a large tile, a colored tile, wood, a patterned tile, or a textured stone, make sure the two pair well!
