How To Choose a Paint Color to Complement Your New Stone Countertops

Enhancing Stone with Painted Walls

You've chosen your stone countertops for your kitchen or bathroom, but now you need to choose the ideal shade of paint to go on the walls. You want something that will enhance the beauty of the stone that you have chosen and fallen in love with. It would be a shame to choose a color that would detract from the granite, marble, or quartz that you so carefully selected. So how should you choose your paint color?

You could bring home endless paint chips and study several test paint areas that you've tried on your walls, or you could try something much simpler that will give you a better idea about the way that a large area of painted wall would against your stone countertops.

The simple way is to use the virtual color tester at your hardware store when you are choosing a paint color. Many virtual design software systems in hardware stores have tools that can help you find the inspiration that you need, and they can also help you visualize what it will look like.

When you're choosing which color will look best, consider whether you want the paint color to pop, or if you'd rather have a more neutral color that will give a backdrop for other objects in the room to stand out. You can also use the wall color to bring out the color of the veining in your stone by matching the paint color to the veining. When you're choosing paint color, you should also consider the size of the space and what kind of lighting will be available. For instance, a small bathroom without any natural light will be better served by a lighter color of paint. But a larger kitchen with lots of natural sunlight can adapt well to a more saturated color.
