If you're looking for more of a classic look that will stand the test of time (and be appealing, not off-putting, to future homeowners), consider more natural colors like a soft, complementary green, or the always classic but dramatic-looking bright white.

While the amount of kitchen countertop colors available often creates an overwhelming selection process for homeowners looking to remodel, the good news is, there's bound to be a countertop color or color palette that's perfect for your space. Just don't forget to consider other surfaces and finishes like flooring, cabinetry, backsplashes and kitchen islands before making an investment.

White countertops are a popular option for homeowners looking for a clean, timeless look that's also striking and modern; white countertops also make the room appear larger than it is, so it's a great option for cozier kitchens.
