Countertop delimma
March 30, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I have an open concept kitchen-living room. Large, rustic stone fireplace in the living room with browns and greys, but our furnishings tend to be a bit more Crate & Barrel - modern, but comfortable. I have white kitchen cabinets and am debating: white quartz or black honed granite for the countertops?

You have to treat the space as a whole. Bring in some of the browns and grays of the living area into the kitchen, and bring some of the white of the kitchen into the living area. If you don't ''cross pollinate'' the space, it looks like two rooms from two completely different houses was setdown from outer space next to each other.

thanks sophie! that's my fear of having an all-white kitchen. white cabinets and counters.... so would adding black into the mix (counters) be random, or would it help in unifying the face and keeping it from looking like two different rooms?

I'd choose a counter that was neither black nor white....maybe more of a limestone-look engineered stone.
