The latest trend in contemporary kitchens is the thick slab countertop effect. While most countertops are normally 2” thick choosing a 3 – 5” thick countertop creates an anchored stately look. Remember to adjust cabinet heights accordingly to make up for the height increase from the thicker countertops.
What décor style is your kitchen: Depending on your decorative style of your kitchen will be the driving factor in choosing a cabinet style. Is your home traditional with ornate wood details and old time charm? You will prefer cabinetry that has fine detailing in the doors and possibly intricate door hardware. Is your home minimalistic and modern with very little detailing and sleek finishes? You may prefer a lacquer luster to your kitchen cabinets or even metal may be more your direction of style.
The secret is in the contrast. If you want your countertop to stand out select a countertop color that pops or stands out from the cabinetry.
