How Countertop Colors Reflect Upon Your Personality

When it comes to choices in countertop colors, the sky's the limit. The colors and even the choice of patterns, or lack thereof, within those colors is astounding. Sometimes, the choices we make are a reflection of our personality. What does your choice in countertop colors say about you? Below, we’ve listed some of the more common choices and given our take on their meaning. Of course, like any prediction, these are for entertainment purposes only. *wink, wink*


Beige is for people who want to keep their options open. A beige countertop gives the homeowner tremendous options and the choice of using a lot of different colors for other elements in their kitchen or bath. People who choose beige enjoy a natural beauty and working well with others.


Brown is rich, warm, and rustic. This is a bold, beautiful choice which brings the room alive. If you choose brown, your room will exude a natural ambiance. Plus, it will make any features or decorations in the room stand out. If you choose brown, it says a lot about your love of life and natural beauty.


White makes a room seem bigger. If you choose white, you've opted for clean openness and breeziness. People who choose white embrace life and fun. While white can be a challenge to keep looking spotless, people who choose white are not afraid of a little work, or a little dirt. 


Countertops in color tones reveal an exotic nature and a penchant for the unusual. People who choose color toned countertops enjoy a striking, glamorous touch. If you choose a color, you have style and passion. You want to live life to its fullest. 


Black is pure drama in a countertop. Black shines and gleams in a way that says it’s not messing around. People who choose black are bold and unafraid. If you choose black, you are decisive.


Blue is a hot-as-a-pistol decorator color right now. Fortunately, blue is also one of those colors which never goes out of style. If you choose blue countertops, you're a traditionist and not afraid to show it.

Sometimes, a homeowner will buy a house which already has stone countertops in it. If this is your situation, and the countertop in your kitchen or bath isn’t what would have been your first choice, don’t despair! The room can truly become a reflection of your personality by simply changing some of the other elements in the room. A different backsplash can create a focal point and basically change the whole feeling of the room.
