With countertop refinishing, the color options are limitless. You can choose a solid color, like white, or you can choose a set of colors to create a faux stone finish. If you feel overwhelmed with customization options, don’t worry. The talented professionals at Maryland Tub and Tile are here to help. Read on to learn how to choose colors for countertop refinishing.
Base Color vs. Accent Colors
Most homeowners choose a faux stone finish for their countertops. This creates the look of granite or quartz for a tiny fraction of the price. Natural stone consists of many different colors. In order to achieve this look, we need to use several colors in countertop refinishing.
You’ll need to select a base color and accent colors. The base provides the foundation of the new countertops. The accents are small speckles that add dimension to the surface. Example: a light grey base with white, light grey and black accent colors. Think of your base color as your main color and the accents as secondary colors. Choose a combination that reflects the look you’re going for.
Look at Countertop Refinishing Samples for Inspiration
You don’t have to choose countertop colors from scratch. You can look at samples for inspiration. Perhaps you want a look that mimics a specific slab of granite. Maybe you want to see common color combinations to get an idea of what looks good together. Check out our before and after gallery for quick inspiration, or look through our stone samples for detailed color selection.
Use Neutral Colors for Longevity
We always recommend using neutral colors for countertop refinishing and tile refinishing. Neutrals stand the test of time. Shades of grey, brown, black and white can complement nearly any other color with ease. They look great no matter how design trends change. In fact, you may be refinishing your countertops because they are in an outdated color. If you choose a neutral base and accent colors, you can change other design elements to fit the trends. It’s much easier to get new towels than it is to get new countertops.
Of course, we are happy to customize your countertops in any way you like. If you really want flakes of lime green in your kitchen, we can make that happen! Do whatever you want to make your home your own.
Pull Colors from the Kitchen or Bathroom
If you’re having a hard time deciding which neutrals to use, consider the colors you already have in the kitchen or bathroom. You might choose an accent color that closely matches the wood in the room, or you may choose a base that picks up on the floor tile. By referencing other colors in the room, you can create a cohesive design that looks purposeful and professional.
Let the Pros Help You Decide!
You don’t have to make this decision alone. The professionals here at Maryland Tub and Tile would be happy to discuss your options with you. Most of our clients use one of our refinishing samples as a starting point, and then they customize it to suit their needs. You may like all but one color in the sample. We can swap out the color you don’t like with one that you do! We will be there to guide you every step of the way.
