The Best Kitchen Countertops For A Traditional Kitchen

January 16th, 2017 5:11pm

A traditional kitchen (or home) will create a style that looks and feels comfortable yet classic! Chances are if you are anywhere from 20 to 50 years old, you probably grew up with a traditional home style. A traditional kitchen remodel will have the following qualities:

- Calm colors - you won't see funky reds or deep purples here
- Everything has its order and everything is organized
- Pieces will match
- A traditional kitchen leans toward cozy and relaxing, not overly "dressy" or gaudy
- A traditional kitchen also won't use stainless steel, chrome or even glass in its construction.

You will, however, see a lot of ornate/decorative moldings, raised panels and neutral colors.

When it comes to choosing countertops for a traditional kitchen remodel it's important to keep the above tips in mind. Here are a few ideas to get you started!

Walnut Butcher Block

A walnut butcher block might not be something you think of when it comes to a traditional space, but wood, unlike glass, is very traditional! Remember, a traditional design is all about comfort, coziness, and warmth. Nothing screams coziness and warmth more than a wood design. You can either use a walnut butcher block for all your counters or you could use it for an expansive kitchen island.

Light Colored Granites

While you're probably used to seeing granite in that famous jet black color, granite also comes in many other variations:

- Pure White with or without added colored flecks
- Light Gray
- Light Tan with or without added color flecks
- Cream, Beige or Gold Colored

Because a traditional kitchen remodel would have neutral colors you could go with one of the first 4 options.

When picking out granite colors, make sure you see what they look like up close and personal, so you are sure to get the exact coloring to fit in with your kitchen's style.

Quartz Counters

Quartz counters have been popular for years and probably will be for the next 10+ years! Choose a quartz color that is light and airy and try not to choose one with too ornate of a design. Quartz can come in many colors and patterns!

Quartz is incredibly easy to take care of and takes almost no maintenance. It's heat resistant, impact resistant and stain/scratch resistant.
