Stone Worktops: how to choose the right colour for your kitchen3 min read


So you’ve decided that it’s time to give your kitchen a brand new work surface or maybe even a complete overhaul and what’s important at this time, is to consider all of the options available to you. Settle on a timeless design that’ll keep you happy for many years to come, so choose your material along with an appropriate colour that’ll best suit you and fit within your home’s interior. For the best ‘how to’, count on our award winning company to guide you through selecting the right colour for your kitchen.



Certain colours come and go, especially with bold colours as they tend to only last as little as a few weeks. So if you’re considering a colour that’s “hot right now” then you need to make sure that it’s something you’ll like once the trend is over. After all, you won’t want to be changing your worktops like we do with our seasonal wardrobes!


Experimenting with colour

We all have our own ideas of what perfection is, which is why we have a huge colour palette for our customers to choose from. CSG’s top tip is to try a dash of colour in the kitchen if your home is a white canvas with white walls and cream furniture, as it’s easier to experiment with colour. For those homes that are beautifully colour coordinated already, you may wish to go for a more subtle approach with beige or white, to give your kitchen the illusion of a more expansive area.

What do you want to achieve?

We’re all looking for the “wow” factor but are we all trying to achieve the same look? The answer is no. It’s all about knowing what you’d like to achieve – white kitchen worktops benefit those looking for complete versatility and the glamorous dark colours work for those wanting add a richness and depth to their kitchen. Whereas bold colours are great for customers looking for a positive, mood altering space.

*Top Tip: you can always enhance subtle worktop colours with the use of bold kitchen accessories and you can balance the impact of a bold worktop with white or cream appliances.


Bring samples and get samples!

Visit a showroom for the ultimate inspiration, and when you do, bring your own kitchen samples along with you. Show the experts at the showroom the samples of your cabinets and pictures of your kitchen’s design, this will help them to match colours with ease and find a selection that’s best suited to your kitchen. A personal consultation is always recommended and this gives you the chance to speak to a professional with a wealth of experience, they can provide you samples too, for you to try out in your very own home.

Take a tour around the showroom and see the stone worktops for yourself. An online browse can only offer so much, whereas seeing the stone in person enables you to see the tones within the colour. This can make a huge difference to your final decision, as the colours can look different depending on the angle and amount of light the worktops are exposed to.
