Blасk соlоr соuntеrtорѕ could be a good option if your kitchen has dark cabinets and plenty of natural light. It is also a good option if you have a ѕtуliѕh black and white theme going on in your kitchen. And finally maybe you have a mostly white kitchen with white cabinets and you want to use a black counter almost as an accent.
A white countertop, or more specifically an slightly off white countertop such as marble or quartz is perhaps the most coveted of all countertop materials. Such a countertop works well in a wide variety of situations because it is neutral and can fit in anywhere from a traditional to a contemporary kitchen.
Gray countertops and other darker off white options are one of the most neutral kitchen counter options. This color countertop has the advantage of hiding small stains especially if the counter is stone with natural color variation in it. Depending on the color scheme of the kitchen it could pair really well with some colorful accents or even soften the look of dark cabinets.
A wood countertop could work well in a all white kitchen by helping to warm the kitchen up a bit and make it feel more homey. If you have wood cabinets, a wood countertop with similar tones could work assuming you are a big fan of wood and the dark color of the wood does not become too overpowering.
