Kitchen countertop decision
September 6, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are keeping the cabinets as they are in very good shape. Just changing out the countertop and backsplash and repainting (hoping for a light sage green wall). Stainless steel sink and brushed nickel faucet. I need color ideas. Want to do Cambria quarts countertop

Cabinets are "pickled" (don't know a better term to use) and the floor is beigish/pinkish (hate it but not changing it). Curtains are going and we are putting molding around window and sliding door (to the right of the sink). Once the appliances start to die off, we will replace with stainless steel.

Looks like a good layout. What is your question?

My question is what color granite/quartz countertop would work with the cabinets and flooring I have now?

If you look through the kitchen photos you'll see everything from white to black with light wood cabinets. To make them look more updated I would lean towards a solid color. And then a subway tile not in the typical 3x6 size - maybe a 2x6 or 4x8.

I know this kitchen is much more modern but just for an idea of solid counter and the larger tile backsplash

@Laurie, thanks for clarifying. There are 13 thousand kitchen photos on Houzz that show up in response to a "Cambria quartz" search. This one may have similar tones to yours:

I agree - since you hate the floor and might someday replace or move then keep counters solid and neutral cream off white.

I think this colour would look good, perhaps with a subway tile in the off white.
