When it comes to your kitchen, there are endless options in terms of materials, colors, and designs. Choosing complementary elements that bring out the best in your kitchen while reflecting your lifestyle and personality can be quite a challenge. Homeowners are faced with innumerable choices as in dark shades or light and airy, solid geometric shapes or dramatic patterns, whimsical or formal!
One of the most important decisions homeowners have to make relates to the kitchen countertop and backsplash materials and colors. The dilemma is whether to mix patterns, colors or textures to bring about a unique, bold look, or go in for a conservative, understated approach with the same material and color for both the backsplash and countertop.
Matching the countertop to the backsplash is a subjective concept, and there really is no right or wrong answer. What looks like the perfect “match” for one person might be unacceptable to the other. Just as no two individuals are alike, there can never be one fixed formula for kitchen décor.
Besides, prospective homebuyers pay attention to the kitchen, the décor, functionality, quality of materials, and the overall look. A well-designed harmonious kitchen can boost up the value of your property immensely.
Tips on mixing and matching countertop and backsplash
Here are some tips to interesting countertop and backsplash combinations:
Choose the countertop material: If you are overwhelmed by the multiple options, focus on selecting the right countertop first. Quartzite is the natural stone that fits in perfectly with almost any style and décor of the kitchen.
Decide on countertop color: Apart from being versatile, quartzite comes in wide-ranging hues such as red, pink, yellow, blue, whites, and grays. Depending on your style needs, you can go with a neutral gray, classic black or white or dramatic red for the countertop.
Mix or match backsplash: Once the countertop is in place, you can look at options for the backsplash. There is no rule that the backsplash color, pattern, design or material should be the same as that of the countertop. You can create unique combinations by choosing contrasting colors, patterns or materials. For instance, if your countertop is black, spruce up the backsplash by using white or aqua blue quartzite. If you wish to have only two hues in your kitchen, go in for an orange backsplash and white countertop. You can also create a dramatic look by using green quartzite countertop and choosing mosaic glass tiles for the backsplash.
With quartzite being highly customizable and versatile, the possibilities are endless when it comes to choosing the countertop and backsplash colors and patterns. The choice is entirely yours whether you wish to use a subtle countertop with a dramatic backsplash or a stunning countertop with an unusual backsplash.
