Contrasting Color Kitchen Countertops, For a bold effect, select a countertop in a lively color. While some of the top choices include yellows, oranges and lime green, the choice of white or black countertops can be as bold a color choice as yellow, depending on the kitchen.
Take advantage of being able to use the space above the island by adding suspended storage, where you can display a matching pan collection or your best stemware. You can also experiment with lighting elements, or if you’ve decided to install a stovetop with overhead venting you can use the space for the range hood.
Choosing between a glossy finish or a honed finish for the island countertop can make all the difference to your kitchen’s ambiance over time. A polished, glossy finish definitely is more appealing visually, and it reflects light fabulously to give the kitchen a stunning focal point. But marble countertops with a glossy finish etch easily when exposed to acidic materials, and if you are not careful, the whole thing can turn into a big mess within just a few months. Honed marble on the other hand is already etched and hence far safer, but the downside is that it stains easily!
