Colored stone and tile is the modern version of the retro colored Formica countertops from the 1960's. In the words of Jonathan Adler, "Color is the most accessible over-the-counter mood-altering substance I can think of. Overdose on color."
Here are a few things to think about when selecting a colored countertop:
- Keep appliances and cabinetry neutral as a backdrop for the bright countertop.
- Make sure it is a color that you and everyone that you live with love.
- Avoid a major pattern and stick to a solid color for the stone and tile.
