Colour is making its way back into homes and interior design in a big way. From bright and bold shades to eye-catching patterns, colourful worktops and countertops in particular have become a creative and stylish way to bring unique character into kitchens.
Here at Cullifords, we have plenty of interesting and colourful slabs to choose from to help you make a true statement in the kitchen. We’ve put this blog together to take you through our favourites and some of our most popular and unique worktops…
Pink Kitchen Worktops
A few years ago, if someone suggested a pink worktop it may have seemed a bit too ‘out there’, but not in today’s brave new design world! In fact, there are plenty of different types of pink surfaces, from lighter onyx to detailed marble. Both the Lagoa Pink and Viola Estramoz marbles are beautiful light pink surfaces with darker veining and detailing going through them – the perfect choices for statement freestanding islands and worktops. For something slightly more sumptuous, a Fusion Fire quartzite is a great option. Filled with plenty of colourings and detail, the exotic pinky / red tone of the stone is guaranteed to act as a showstopping focal point in any kitchen.
Dark Coloured Countertops
From black and gold marbles to deep green accents, dark coloured kitchen worktops can add plenty of drama to a space. Presenting an exquisite depth of colour and detail, Jurassic Green is filled with an assortment of greens and flecks of black and white. Perfect for waterfall breakfast bars and kitchen islands, it’ll add a unique finishing touch to any residential or commercial scheme. Another favourite of ours and our customers is the Finnish granite Baltic Green. Set against a dark black background, the mottled green hues are presented in a circular pattern, creating a striking contemporary kitchen work surface.
Green Kitchen Worktops
The popularity of green within interior design has soared over the past few years and we have seen this trend make its way into surface choices as well. Linked to our increasing desire to bring in nature-inspired colours and details into the home, there are a wide range of greens to choose from when it comes to kitchen worktops.
A beautiful turquoise tone, Amazonite is a stunning green quartzite that will work particularly well when paired with contrasting bright pops of colour, like pink! It boasts a complexity of colours that make it especially well-suited to making a striking statement in the kitchen.
White Beauty marble on the other hand offers a more subtle approach to incorporating green into the kitchen. A pale backdrop is decorated with light and dark green veining, resulting in a kitchen worktop surface that is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.
SapienStone’s Alpi Chiaro ceramic surface is a beautiful example of how to achieve a bold and colourful look with an imitation material. It’s deep emerald green tones and white detailing can be used across worktops, splashbacks and other surfaces to create an incredibly eye-catching scheme.
Bold Marble Worktops
The world of marble surfaces is vast. From multicoloured slabs to statement black and white patterns, you really can let your creativity run wild when choosing a bold marble kitchen worktop.
Panda White marble is the perfect example of how to make a statement through patterned marble. The thick black veining contrasted against the crisp white background creates a truly unique and exotic focal point in the kitchen, especially when teamed with a bookmatched splashback in the same material.
For a touch of multicoloured charm, the Luana Multicoloured marble is both mesmerising and arresting. Touches of pink, dark mauve, white and grey combine to create a truly beautiful worktop choice that will make a wonderful statement in any kitchen.
