Kitchen worktop colour schemes

In Kitchen Worktops by dawn

Re-designing your kitchen is an infrequent task, so when choosing the décor and colour scheme for your kitchen granite worktops you want to get it just right. It is important to carefully consider your choice of colour to create the best visual impact and make the most of the size and shape of your kitchen.

When selecting from the available colours you will often be presented with a colour wheel, which will give you an idea of all of the available tones and patterns. There are a number of different colour schemes used by designers, and each one will have a different impact on the appearance of your kitchen.

A monochromatic colour scheme is a single colour but with varying shades, tints and tones. A complementary scheme on the other hand uses two colours that offer a harmonious match and give more intensity and energy to the room. When three similar hues are used together this is called an Analogous colour scheme, employing similar tones such as violet and blue or red and orange. Neutral colour schemes use well-matched, non dominant combinations such as black, grey and white. An Accent colour scheme is a bright, vibrant colour used in small quantities to add an impact to another, more neutral colour. Lastly the clashing colour scheme is for bolder tastes and uses any number of vivid colours together for an intense impact.

Consider your colour preference carefully before purchasing your granite worktops, as they are extremely durable and will last for a long time.
