Three Steps to a Well-Coordinated Kitchen

First you need to figure out what your preferred style is. Do you like traditional, contemporary, farmhouse, or something transitional? Is there a color or materials palette that works best for your style and preferences? Our designer and showroom assistant can help you coordinate your kitchen countertops to your cabinets and floors, to ensure your kitchen if the focal point of your home.

First, choose your color palette

C and C Stoneworks recommends you keep your palette fairly simple by first choosing three coordinating neutrals. You should select a primary color along with two complementary accent colors that appeal to you and your style. If you are looking for a kitchen that is timeless, we suggest you choose neutrals to accomplish this. We can show you classic quartz countertops with backsplash, grout and flooring that complete the look. Or some stunning granite or marble countertop options that add a little flair.

Next, pick your kitchen countertop

You should select a material for your kitchen countertop that matches your personal and home life style. When you first choose your countertop, the material you pick can become the foundation of your kitchen design. For example, if you choose a light quartz countertop, you can pair that with classic grey cabinetry and a natural wood floor that “picks up the tones” from the countertop and cabinetry to finalize your design. Or go bold with a marble or granite with veining that grabs your attention and pair with a white or neutral cabinet and backsplash.

Whether your price point is budget, middle of the road or luxury, most countertop materials feature a wide range of flecked, stone, or marble-like patterns. You can even take samples home with you so you can see how the countertops work with your proposed cabinetry, flooring, backsplash and accessories such as hardware.

Finally, finish with kitchen accessories and accents

The last step in planning your kitchen remodel is to select accents and accessories that bring out your personal style. If you want to add some splash to the neutral elements you selected, you can add some bold colors and finishes to the walls or with your kitchen appliances.

Your kitchen hardware will enhance whatever style you choose, whether it be farmhouse, traditional or contemporary. Metallic finishes can brighten your space or highlight the marble, quartz or granite countertops you selected with flecks of metallic, silver or gold. Pulls and knobs can highlight the countertops and reflect light.
