Spring is the season of new beginnings. It’s the season when frozen, dormant soil gives way to fresh green grass and flowering buds. It’s when animals awaken and the Earth seems to awake from its months’ long slumber.
For homeowners, it’s also an opportunity to redecorate and rediscover their flair for the fantastic.
Each spring, homeowners across the country seem to be inspired to partake in a growing national pastime known as kitchen decorating. The old is moved out, the new is moved in–and that includes a fresh coat of paint.
If you are feeling the annual pull at your artistic side, consider incorporating these trendy paint colors into your kitchen decorating plans–all of which go well with granite:
Neutrals that deliver nuance
They are classic and rustic in nature yet energetic when paired with granite countertops. They include light tan, charcoal and copper for the walls and citrus orange and deeps, dusty aqua for accents.
Pastels with depth
If any color category screams new beginnings, it is pastels. Yes, they are the perfect spring colors. But when they are touched with a kiss of depth–call it frost, if you will–they transcend spring and give your home a fresh, energetic feel all year long. Frosted pastels also work extremely well with granite countertops that include a touch of mauve or black.
If you are aiming for energy, you can’t go wrong with bright, lively colors that include limes, blues, grapes and oranges. While they might overwhelm if used throughout the room, they can infuse excitement into your kitchen decorating project when combined as accents with granite countertops that have natural shades of gray.
The classic complements
Of course there are times when you may not want to overhaul your entire kitchen. In these instances, you can add splashes of color that complement your granite countertops, including red accessories with black granite, white accessories with gray granite, cream accessories with brown granite and white accessories with white granite to create a crisp, refreshing look.
Winter is over. It is time to rejuvenate your kitchen and bring it back to life by adding a fresh, new color. If you want more kitchen decorating ideas, contact the granite experts at Arch City Granite & Marble today!
