Home Builder with Women of Westchester Working Together

Remodeling your kitchen can confront you with some questions you hadn't thought about before: Which colors would work best with the size of the room? How much light do my windows let in, and how does that affect the colors I choose? In my case, when we renovated our kitchen I opted for white cabinets because it will always make the kitchen look bigger. We even ordered white appliances — I’m not a fan of stainless steel and this way the white appliances don’t stand out.

The next decision: the color of the countertops. I narrowed it down to a white with few gray flecks, or a beige-ish color with brown flecks. Your decision should be based on the question: How much time will I spend in my kitchen, and how much will I use it for preparing meals?

In my case, I do use my kitchen every day, it's the nucleus of our home. We eat our meals in the kitchen, I bake a lot, and sometimes even work at the computer sitting at my kitchen table. So, it was an important decision to make. At first, I was voting for the beige one because of the brown wood floors, but the longer I looked at it, I decided that the white/gray countertop would be much more versatile and modern-looking. It also would stand out less and not cut the room in half. In order to convince my husband, I went on a quest to find pictures on Pinterest of kitchens with white-gray counters.

I ended up ordering a white/gray countertops. I love how thick they are, and that they are not shiny. Even better: this material can take a lot of abuse which is perfect for everyday use. And what made me really happy is that my husband really likes them as well.
