How to choose the right colour when selecting Granite or Quartz Worktops

Trends can come and go rapidly, none more so than in the world of colour, particularly in the home. Decisions on colours can be highly important as you decide on what you want your kitchen to look like and indeed the type of environment it creates.

Making decisions on how you want your home to look like can be tricky, as we look for our own version of perfection. The colour of the walls and doors can give the vibe you want, indeed colour and the use of it can dictate the style of your home, not just your kitchen.

Choosing the colour and type of worktop, whether Granite or Quartz, is specific to your kitchen design and as the centrepiece of the room is a big decision to make. At Cheshire Granite Worktops we consult with you before you buy, but lets take a look at some of the ways you can make your decisions to help you stay in trend or capture that timeless classic.

Do you want to stay on trend with colours?

Choose a worktop with a neutral base and introduce trendy colours and shading as accents that are easy to replace. If you wanted to stay very active in decorating your kitchen and worktop why not change the cushions/soft furnishing every 12-18 months.

Pay close attention to shades

When choosing the colour for your scheme, always pay close attention to colours of other objects in the room. Take a look at any interior design catalogue and it will highlight the importance of selecting the right shade or specific colour.
Black can saturate and minimise a space and this can be important when it comes to small areas, where as light colours will open up a confined space. Red on the other hand if used in abundance, can agitate and even unsettle an environment. All your colour choices, and worktop consideration should integrate with your general and specific needs and personal vision for the kitchen design you have in mind.

When choosing colours current trends, your personality and existing colours and hues in your home or should come into effect.At Cheshire Granite Worktops we offer a personalised consultation service which considers your use of colour so you get the right worktops for your kitchen design.
