trendy contrasting countertops for your kitchen cover

If you want to refresh your home decor and wanna start with kitchens, renovating a kitchen can be done in many ways, splurging or on a budget. One of the hottest kitchen decor trends that won’t cost you much is high contrast. Contrasting kitchen islands, lamps, contrasting statement walls, backsplashes and of course contrasting countertops and cabinets. Dark or bright cabinets with neutral countertops or vice versa are a bold contemporary feature that will give your kitchen a fresh look at once. Besides, changing the countertops isn’t usually that expensive or you can at least paint the cabinets to implement this feature, so you won’t break the bank. Hesitating? Here are some ideas that may inspire you!

Choose The Colors

Decide on your kitchen color or colors, as two tone kitchens are extremely popular and modern, and then just opt for contrasting countertops: if it’s a dark kitchen, prefer white ones or neutral wooden ones, if it’s a neutral kitchen, opt for bright or dark countertops. If you have a two tone kitchen, your countertops may match the upper cabinets for a cohesive look. Considering contrasting countertops too much? Then go for a contrasting kitchen island providing a contrasting countertop for it to make it stand out – contrasting and unique kitchen islands are another hot trend.

Play With Textures

Contrasting countertops look bold, of course, but you wanna add more interest to the kitchen, we strongly recommend to make them of a different material, too. Butcherblock, marble, stone, onyx, concrete countertops will add eye-catchiness to your kitchen easily. Your backsplash may completely match the countertops in the material and color used, or just in color – but it should match, otherwise you’ll get a tasteless look – too many mismatching elements won’t do any good to your space. Enjoy the examples and get inspired!
