Tips For Choosing The Right Colors For Your Kitchen

Kitchens aren’t just used for cooking and meal preparation – they’re multi-functional spaces that function as family gathering spaces, entertainment areas and general living areas. This can make it a challenge to come up with the perfect color scheme for your space. Here are some tips from the specialists in laminate kitchen countertop edges.

  • Start off with a big selection: This step involves popping down to your local home depot and selecting every paint card that appeals to you. This is a great chance for experimenting with some creative, out-of-the-box thinking, so step out of your comfort zone and get colors that are bright, warm, neutral, cool and vibrant so that you can create different looks.
  • Trends will only take you so far: Paint and color trends are a great guide, but you should always choose what makes you happy over what’s in fashion. Think of your best memories – do you love walking in the woods? Visiting the beach? The change of the leaves in the fall? Take a look at your colors and group them according to those that connect you with each memory. Remember, it’s not about re-creating the leaves or beach itself, but choosing colors that remind you of that feeling of peacefulness, relaxation or fun.
  • Match against your furnishings: If you’ve already got your cabinet and countertop colors, now’s the right time to see how each inspiring palette looks with your furnishings and appliances. Different colors will bring out different aspects of your furnishings, and remember that you can cool down or warm up a tone in every color to change this, even with neutrals.
  • Don’t be afraid to get creative: When it comes to color, kitchens are very forgiving spaces. This is because there are very limited spaces for color, so it doesn’t become overwhelming. If you’re considering more creative colors, one good tip is to focus on a single aspect of your space and keep the rest more neutral. For example, deep red walls look gorgeous with black laminate or granite like laminate countertops and white cabinetry.

Can laminate countertops be painted?

The short answer to this question is yes, laminate countertops can be painted. However, the more important question is: should they? Here’s what the specialist manufacturers of laminate edging options have to say on the topic.

First, it is important to recognize the qualities that make laminate countertops so great. Firstly, they’re affordable at around $30 including installation, which makes them very accessible to most remodeling budgets. Secondly, they are very heat and scratch resistant, so they are up to the task of even the busiest home kitchens. They are also very hygienic and easy to maintain, because they are non-porous and resistant to bacteria.

Now, while there are products on the market that can be applied to laminate to change or disguise the design, these products cannot offer the same results as laminate – simply because you will be comparing a paint product to a compressed and sealed composite wood product.

The paint can be scratched by knives and scorched by hot pots and pans, leaving cracks and dents where water and food debris can collect, becoming a risk for bacteria growth. This will make them less hygienic and more difficult to maintain going forward. While even old laminate countertops can offer you years of use, painted countertops may be more work than you bargained for.

A better solution would be to invest in new laminate countertops. Thanks to advanced technology, there are more designs than ever before, including ultra-realistic marble, natural stone and wood. They can be installed directly onto your old countertops and you can further enhance them with customized laminate edge options that offer additional durability and an updated look.
