How to Choose the Right Color for Your Kitchen Countertops

Choosing the right color for your kitchen countertops can be a difficult choice. In our warehouse alone, there are thousands of options, each of which could fit beautifully in a specific space—but they aren’t always the right look for your space. Finding the right color is a delicate balance between design scheme, individual décor elements and optimizing your investment.

Consider the Overall Look You Want

When you begin a renovation project, you will often plan out what you are hoping to do in advance. You will determine what kind of cabinetry (and what finish) you want, what kind of flooring will look best, what color family you want to focus on and so forth. Each of these elements works together to create your whole space, and your countertops should work well with each of these elements, as well.

We recommend that homeowners bring samples of their wood finishing, flooring, wall colors, etc. when they visit our warehouse. Having these samples on hand will help you see how a certain stone will work in your space.

Ask Your Decorator

If you are using a designer or decorator for your remodel, the obvious choice is to ask for their input when the time comes to pick your kitchen countertops. They will have an intimate understanding of the design components and they will be able to guide you towards certain color families, or even towards specific slabs within our warehouse.

Consider Resell Value

Many homeowners neglect to consider the resell value behind their personal color choices. Over-customizing your home to meet your personal tastes can make it difficult to sell later on. We recommend that you consider more neutral colors for your home so that you will get the best value out of your investment. In addition to making your home easier to resell, using a more neutral stone can make any future redecorating or renovating projects easier.

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
