Know What Your Style Is
The right countertop for your remodel will depend largely on your style. Do you know what your style is? If you don’t think you have one, take a look at your closet. Look at your favorite clothes. Are they light-colored? Neutral? Bright? They are likely a good indicator of the colors and patterns you like. You could look at magazines with recent remodels to see what countertop colors and styles you like or take an online quiz to find out what style meshes well with your preferences.
Look Around for Inspiration
If you are really stuck, look around you to figure out what you like. You can look at redecorating blogs or magazines, consider which of your friends’ designs you like and why, or check around the latest trends. The idea is not that you should copy the look of someone else or just do what is popular to do, but rather that you take note of what you really love – and what you don’t love.
Make Sure it Works with the Rest of Your Kitchen
If the countertops are the last thing you are considering in your home, make sure that they are going to fit in with the rest of your home. For example, if you are getting unique kitchen appliances, then it would be important to choose countertops that will fit in well. Make sure that your flooring, countertops, and fixtures all work well together.
Stick within Your Budget
We do not recommend starting with your budget because it can keep you from getting inspired. You might find something that is three times your price range but realize that it is a style you love. You can then look for ways to get a similar style for much less. In the inspiration phase, money doesn’t matter – but when you start to whittle away contenders, then it is time to make sure you are sticking within your budget.
