We are building a vacation home with our children. We let our son pick the kitchen flooring, and he selected Vitromex Vulkan Multicolor floor tile.
We would have preferred a hardwood floor, or a more neutral colored tile, so we could select a more interesting granite or quartz countertop, but we are stuck with it now. The cabinets are a simple shaker style in a medium warm wood tone. We are having trouble finding any countertop that works with this floor tile. What countertops, color appliances and sinks would you recommend? Any color advice would be greatly appreciated.
Pretty floor and you're right, it is busy. Your countertops should remain neutral ,but in contrast to the cabinetry with little movement or non movement such as Corian or a solid laminate. Other options are concrete, glass, a speckled quartz. If you haven't already done so, carry a sample of the flooring and cabinetry stain with you to local fabrication showrooms to see what works best. A product with a gray coloration such is found in the flooring may be your best bet. If the cabinets are dark, a cream/beige countertop may be a better option.
BTW, I prefer to select my granite for countertops and the floor second as granite tends to have some movement.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Froo Froo,
Take a sample of the floor to a granite yard and see what you can do. You never know what they have in stock and what advice they might have for you.
