The countertop rarely becomes the most striking detail of the kitchen design. However, it is the work surface that may well become the focal point that attracts the eye of everyone who enters the kitchen. Our tips site will show you how different color countertops can look in a kitchen.
As the portal already wrote in an article about the most popular today laminated chipboard worktops, they can be of very different colors and shades, including bright, noticeable ones. Countertops made of artificial stone, acrylic, can also be ordered and bought in different colors. They paint thanks to pigments, they also decorate concrete countertops, so the choice is really great.
When choosing the color of the countertop, you can go in two ways:
- Choose a shade that matches the color of the apron or kitchen set. For example, use the same material for the decoration of both the apron and the countertop.
- Play in contrast, make the countertop the brightest element in the decor of the entire room. For example, in the photo above, one bright red work surface stands out noticeably against the background of dark cabinets and beige apron tiles. And the second countertop, on the contrary, became a continuation of the wall, faced with the same small dark blue tiles.

Again, the apron maintains the bright color of the countertop, and the rest of the kitchen is very calm..
The designers are sure that the countertop can and should act not only as a work surface, but also as a bright color accent in the kitchen. Especially if the headset itself and the wall decoration are neutral, white, beige, gray. Against such a background, any color accents will look original and appropriate..
