Installing new countertops in your kitchen or bathroom is a major investment, so you want to be sure that you make the right choice. One of the major decisions you have to make is what color you want for your new countertops. And when it comes to bathrooms versus kitchen countertops, you are most likely not going to make the same choice. You want different things from your bathroom and kitchen countertops, which is reflected in the colors that you choose.


If you need some inspiration for your color choices, let us give you a starting point for kitchen countertops versus bathrooms.


Kitchens: Light Colors and Textures

In general, your counter covers more surface area in your kitchen than in a bathroom. (Although, if that’s not true in your home, we’d love to see your bathroom!) Because of the amount of space that a kitchen counter covers, designers and customers tend to favor lighter colors. Lighter colors open up a space and make the room feel warmer and more inviting.

However, we know that a solid white countertop isn’t very visually interesting, which is why the textures of natural stone are so appealing. The subtleties of the color variations that appear in the veining of natural stone soften the look of your kitchen countertops and break up a solid white slab.


Bathrooms: Bold and Complementary Colors

When it comes to choosing countertops for their bathrooms, customers are often a little bolder than they would be with their kitchens. For one, a bathroom counter is much smaller than one in a kitchen. Dark colors like black, navy blue, or dark gray work well in larger bathrooms where you do not need to create the illusion of space. In smaller bathrooms, pinks, greens, light blues, and sandy yellows are good choices.

It is a popular design choice to decorate your bathroom along a theme. With the many color choices you have, especially with quartz and granite, you can include your new countertop in your theme.
