Granite countertops area popular choice for many kitchens – and for good reason! They are beautiful and incredibly easy to maintain. Due to this popularity, though, there are a ton of options to choose from. The pros at Stone Tech have compiled four things to consider as you plan your new granite countertops below!
1. Your kitchen’s size.
First and foremost, the size and dimensions of your kitchen will dictate certain aspects of the design of your granite countertops. If you have a larger kitchen, you may want to experiment with eye-catching dark colors and patterns. Smaller kitchens may want to opt for lighter colors and patterns that help your kitchen appear bigger and more open.
2. Your kitchen’s lighting.
Natural light and artificial light will have very different effects on your granite countertops. Darker colors (like dark blue, black, and mahogany) suit kitchens with plenty of both natural and artificial light. Kitchens that lack plentiful light sources may want to opt for light hues like white and gold.
3. Your kitchen’s color scheme.
Naturally, your granite countertop will look incredibly out of place if it doesn’t match your cabinets, floors, and walls. Carefully consider how you want the color of your granite to complement the rest of your kitchen. Taking a sample home is a great way to get a real sense of how the countertop will fit in to the big picture.
4. Your kitchen’s sink.
The style and type of sink you will install can have a big impact on the granite countertops you choose. Finding a functional and stylish sink that suits both your countertops and the rest of your kitchen can be challenging – ask the pros at Stone Tech for some sink tips!
