One of the most important features, both practically and visually, in any kitchen is the worktop.

What are the important considerations for choosing a worktop colour?
When choosing your worktop, the colour might not seem as important as the material used, but the colour itself can have a big impact on the visual impression your kitchen creates. There are a number of things to consider, before choosing a colour. These include:
- The colour of the kitchen- If you want your worktop to blend in with the rest of your kitchen, especially the kitchen cabinets, choosing a complementary colour can be a great idea. However, two tone kitchens are becoming more popular, and these combine two different colours to create a stunning visual effect. As a result, you may prefer to choose a worktop with a contrasting or alternative colour.
- The style of the kitchen- if you’re kitchen is a traditional or shaker kitchen, you probably want to choose a dark colour that pairs well with your cabinets. But in a more contemporary kitchen, almost any colour of worktop can be used effectively.
- Neutral colours- choosing a neutral worktop can be a good option for people who like to redecorate their kitchen every few years. A beige or cream worktop will generally fit with any colour scheme, and it means you can repaint or wrap your cabinets as frequently as you want, without needing to change the worktop to match.
