Here are few steps to consider:

  • Consider visiting a showroom which has full-scale kitchens on displays - there you’ll see a variety of countertop materials in realistic kitchen settings.
  • Natural stone counters are cut from granite, marble, soapstone, limestone, sandstone, and slate, to name a few.
  • Keep in mind that natural stone is porous, so it must be sealed regularly to prevent staining.
  • In case you are interested in a natural stone counter, visit a stone fabrication yard and view the full-size slabs in person.
  • Marble is a popular countertop material, however due to its calcium-based composition, it’s softer and less scratch-resistant than granite. Marble must also be sealed more often.
  • Marble can be factory-sealed prior to fabrication, which dramatically increases its stain resistance.

Your kitchen or bathroom countertop may actually turn out to be the most important decorating choice, not only because of its visual impact, but also because of the time and expense of installation. Choosing the right type of counter surface will depend on your tastes, your level of use, and the overall style of your home. Once you have decided on the right countertop material for your home, it's also time to choose the proper color.

So, here are a couple of tips to help you find the right color for your countertops:

Don’t always match your countertops with paint and accessories

When you're deciding on your countertop color, you'll most probably want to match it to a color scheme for the room. Matching the countertops to a paint color can be gorgeous, however keep in mind that your color tastes may change and the room could be repainted. Strongly colored countertops that are chosen to match with paint, accessory, or furniture colors, can become outdated easily. Consider a countertop with veins or splashes of your favorite color, so you can keep your options open.

Choose countertop colors with color flexibility

Solid color countertops can look simple and modern, but can also look cold in a room without other patterns going on. In case you love the look of a stylized tile backsplash, or wallpaper, a solid color countertop can balance the room.

If you like to keep other elements of the room simple, then countertops with a natural pattern or multiple colors, can give you balance, too.
