granite countertop
Most home décor magazines showcase exquisite kitchens the size of a small studio apartment, with endless cabinetry, multiple workspaces and stunning granite countertops. In reality, not all homes, lofts or condos offer the space for that luxury. A smaller floorplan does not mean you cannot have the same look and feel as a larger space, it just means selecting a color palette that works in your kitchen. Finding countertops that complement your new or existing cabinetry is a good place to start. Some cabinetry is versatile enough to work with the majority of granite choices. Other selections coordinate with a more limited field of countertops. Either way this combination is essential in setting the tone for the space. There are many schools of thought on this, with lighter colors often being recommended in smaller kitchens. If you choose to follow this idea, you will likely be deciding if a white granite will create the clean lines you want, or if you prefer the warmth of a beige granite. Those are among the more common lighter colors, but other hues can fall in this category. Of course the veins and other elements of each choice make it uniquely beautiful for your space. The pattern and sheen also contribute to how the countertops with make the space feel larger or smaller. While lighter options can be a common recommendation, there are other factors to consider. The amount of natural light in your kitchen plays an important role in selecting the best granite countertops for your space. If your preference is a darker granite, working with a designer can let you incorporate that into your design by selecting a combination of materials and finishes that come together without making the kitchen feel smaller. Countertops, cabinets, flooring and appliances are large decisions to make for the long term. Whether your kitchen is a grand space, a small galley, a simple layout or something in between, granite countertops can be an option for you. Taking the time to consider the size of the space can allow you to make the most of the room you have.
