The built-in kitchen countertop is largely a 20th-century phenomenon. Wood, marble, and the occasional metal counters usually appeared only in the pantry, even in the most stylish 19th-century homes. When it was present, the worktop was usually a dry sink or a wood table, both of which endure as inspiration for the vintage-look counters we prefer today.
To start, I needed a vision board: I spent hours looking at paint samples because paint is the one thing that can instantly transform a space – make it brighter, happier, even more inspired. I wanted a neutral color that felt clean and could take on fun accents, plus, if we ever sold the home could be a blank space for others. I went with a Behr paint in Ancient Stone – a blue-based, cool gray (did I mention I love the color gray?). We spent about $250 on paint and another $150 on spackle.
So today we are going to be talking about how to choose a kitchen countertop. This topic seriously gave me hives while we were doing our kitchen remodel. There are just so many options available and just tiny little samples to help you make your decision. Ugh. I spent hours upon hours researching different coutertop materials and ended up bringing countless samples home to “test out”. It was, by far, the hardest decision I made when it came to choosing what I wanted in the kitchen.
