If your kitchen has granite counters but you’re looking to remodel the rest of the area, consider keeping those granite countertops and designing the kitchen around them. The following are a few tips for centering your renovations around your granite countertops:
- Natural colors – Granite is a natural stone, which means that choosing other natural colors for the rest of the kitchen is a great way to complement your countertops. Green and grey are good examples of this. Try painting the kitchen island a duck-egg green and the walls a warm grey, leaving the rest of your cabinets white.
- Warm tones – If your granite counter has a warm tone, then complement it with other warm hues such as cappuccino or taupe. Just think about keeping your kitchen cabinets white to prevent the kitchen from becoming too dark.
- Modern elements – If you’re looking to create a more modern appearance, go with white cabinets, ceilings and walls and use light gray tiles for the floor and backsplash.
