Most of your kitchen’s color scheme covers your floor, cabinetry, and countertop. Because of the high price and installation cost, you may not want to change out major materials such as quartz countertops for a long time. This makes it essential to get the color scheme right. If those three permanent features are living in harmony, it will be so much easier to match everything else, from choosing cabinets to picking a new sink, and getting appliances.
Countertops tend to take a big chunk of your budget, so you may want to get them first. After choosing the right countertop material, you must pick a hue you love. Quartz is available in a variety of colors. Here are some tips to guide when choosing quartz countertops that match the color scheme of your kitchen:
Begin with a Color Palette
When it comes to your kitchen, you want to pick two main colors and one accent color. You can choose two simple colors but make sure they complement each other. The third color is meant to add a pop of color or be neutral that ties it all together. Keep in mind that things such as wall paint and accessories can be changed over the years.
Lighting can significantly impact color. Thus, your quartz might look different under natural light during the day and artificial light during the night. When shopping for quartz countertops, make sure to bring home samples before you finalize your decision. This way, you can test it under the actual lighting in your house.
Moreover, color can manipulate your kitchen’s size. A kitchen flooded with natural light will feel bigger while a space without lots of windows might feel more cramped. The same goes for kitchen countertops. If you want to make your kitchen look bigger, opt for white quartz countertops because they can help bounce natural light around.
In terms of picking your countertops, make sure to bring samples of your paint color or photos of materials. If you want to install countertops over existing cabinetry, unhinge a door and bring it with you. By having samples with you when you visit a showroom, you can pick a surface that goes with your new or current color story. Also, it lets you avoid getting something not trendy. If your counter is not a solid color, consider pulling coordinating colors from the specks, veining, and flecks.
