One of the most common home renovation projects that will improve your home as well as increase value is in the kitchen! Kitchen improvement projects have been very popular since the start of the pandemic. However, depending on what materials you choose for your kitchen, a kitchen project can become quite pricey. 

From cabinets to countertops, there are many ways homeowners can improve the functionality and look of their kitchen. However, before you start your next project, there are some things you should keep in mind. Learn these three things you should consider before deciding on new countertops for your kitchen. 

Consider the visual appearance

Countertops are the focal point of pretty much every kitchen. Whether it is a residential or commercial kitchen, it is important to choose a countertop that complements the kitchen style. It can be used in your design to make a space look larger than it is, so you want to be sure that you choose wisely. 

Dark color cabinets work nicely with light color countertops. If you have light color cabinets, a dark countertop complements each other. You can also choose a countertop that matches the same color of the cabinets for a monochromatic design. It all depends on the style of the kitchen you are trying to achieve. 

Consider sampling different countertop

Before purchasing a countertop, be sure to sample it first. If you have already chosen the color of your cabinets wood and backsplash, bring those samples with you when you are shopping for countertops. This will allow you to see with your own eyes which countertops work best visually. 

These materials can assist you in finding a countertop that matches your color scheme and designs. The last thing you want is to purchase a slab and have it not match your existing designs. If you are still deciding on the elements of your kitchen design, ask a natural stone supplier like Firenze International for samples. They will be able to let you know whether granite, quartz, serpentine marble countertops or other material will look best! 

Consider how you are going to design your kitchen

Solid kitchen countertops may look dull but straightforward in a room, especially without additional patterns going on. If you are into a stylized tile backsplash, a solid color may easily balance the room. If you like simple tones, the kitchen countertop can take a natural pattern coupled with multiple colors to provide a balance. 

For many individuals seeking countertops, granite and serpentine marble countertops are both excellent choices. Both of these materials work well in kitchens and can fit any style. They both come in neutral colors, and the patterns on them can vary. For kitchens with less busy designs, you can select a countertop with a bolder pattern to make it stand out - while kitchens with busy designs can choose a marble or granite counter with a less busy pattern. 

There are many factors to consider when beginning a kitchen renovation project. Use these tips to help you choose the right countertops that will match the style of your kitchen!
