We have all been hearing about the new cool kid in interior design – two toned cabinets. But we can’t let the cabinetry designers and contractors have all the fun.
Mixing materials has always been around, yet designers and homeowners are getting more creative. Mixing your countertop color, and material has a myriad of benefits. For example:
When mixing countertop materials you have the option to use something more cost friendly in the majority of your space and something more luxe and expensive as an accent piece or island.
Using two different stones, colors or tones does a lot for you space visually. A lighter perimeter stone make the space seem larger while a darker detached island grounds the space. A pop of color on an island is a great way to express yourself while not going overboard. Using the same stone in different finished is a unique way to implement this style without taking it too far out of your comfort zone.
A lot of homes are choosing to add a butcher block right to their countertops to give a rustic look with a touch of practicality. Designers are also implementing wedge bars and
table extensions to islands with different materials due to how large they tend to be.
