Comments - Countertops with Personality

Karen on Sep 10, 2012:

My hubby and I love ALL THAT JAZZ. But I hear it may be discontinued. I feel with all those color...what ever changes we have in the future IE paint, it will be easy to match. We both want all white cabinets, we are not into wood finishes for the kitchen. So we feel ALL THAT JAZZ will give it a pop!

These remind me of those mustard yellow and avacado green formica tops (and toilets, tubs etc) that were probably trendy for a few years, then quickly became dated and impossible to decorate around. My point is that I think the investment into countertops is too great to risk on something that is so trendy.

Here's an idea, how about using a nuetral color for your main countertops and a brightly colored countertop on an island? Replacing the island's top won't hurt your wallet (or heart) as badly as replacing the entire kitchen's countertops, and you still get the bright color you like.

Loving the retro vibe. Lovely ice-cream colours.

All That Jazz is wonderful adventure! I often prefer a frankly faux effect to the deadly ernestness of reality.

Um, nope, not here.  I don't mind fun for paint colors or "things to put", but I want my countertop to fade into the background and match every change I make for the next twenty years.  Them's not cheap to change (though the Citron Ice does give me warm fuzzies).
