Kitchen Countertops and Floors: How to Choose the Best Match

Posted on November 27th, 2015 by

Every homeowner has a different idea of what makes a beautiful kitchen. This is why Unique Flooring in San Diego, CA, offers so many different flooring options to match the various countertop options available. Here are a few ideas to consider when choosing the counters and floors for your kitchen remodel.

Select a Main Color Scheme

Using a color chart or paint chips, limit your selections to three colors. Two of the colors will be dominant and should be on the neutral side. Browns and beiges are common and popular choices. The third is the accent color, which can be bolder and used on accessories, accents, or walls. 

Pick the Countertop First

Your counters may be your most expensive investment and the colors tend to vary more than floors and cabinets. The type of material and the pattern in your countertop will also help you determine similar qualities in your flooring. If you choose a granite countertop with a strong pattern, for instance, select a more solid tone for your flooring and backsplash so you won’t have a busy look.

Think About Color Undertones

When making your selections, look for yellow or pink undertones, particularly if you are using browns or beiges. If your countertop has yellow or pink undertones, be sure your flooring has the same. Mismatched undertones can make the kitchen look less cohesive. 

Decide on Matching or Contrasting Colors

Matching colors can make a bold statement with a monochromatic look. Consider matching the countertop colors with the cabinets and use a contrasting color for the flooring to set it apart from the rest of the kitchen. 

Consider the Kitchen’s Overall Style

A country style kitchen lends itself to wood flooring and countertops and brightly colored accents, while a more traditional look may incorporate natural stone countertops and flooring. However, an eclectic look can take on elements of each, with a mix of colors and patterns.
