The latest trend in contemporary kitchens is the thick slab countertop effect. While most countertops are normally 2” thick, choosing a 3 – 5” thick countertop creates an anchored, stately look. Remember to adjust cabinet heights accordingly to make up for the height increase from the thicker countertops.
Since beadboard is often sold in long strips, you’ll likely need to cut pieces down to size. Be sure to measure beforehand and to lay out your design before gluing to ensure that you’ll be happy with the final design. Don’t hesitate to add some paint or stain to make the look pop. Dark gray and muted teal are both beautiful choices when going for more than white.
If you’d like to break up all the straight lines in a contemporary kitchen, add a little curve to your countertop design. A curve, especially in the seating area, creates an inviting, communal place where it’s easier to sit and have a face-to-face conversation with each other.
