Color Suggestions for Counter Tops

My husband and I have put in antiqued off white cabinets in our 1930 (small) kitchen. We also wanted to do hardwoods but because of sub-flooring concerns did not do this and added cherry wood laminate floors. We have a Hoosier in the kitchen which is off-white, the appliances are bisque and our walls are off-white.

I want to add some color but do not want to offend potential buyers because we are planning to move in a year or two. We also are thinking laminate because we do not want a shiny look and honed granite is a lot for us right now. Any thoughts on what we should do for a counter top and a sink? Thank you so much for your time!

How about sage green for the counter top and bisque for the sink? Sage is the hot color in decorating right now and it looks good with bisque. (02/13/2008)

I vote for a light green, cottage type color. But you could also bag them and poly them to look like granite really easy! (02/14/2008)

Why not go to a location that sells counter tops and look over their samples.There are many types of counter tops other than granite and formica. They have samples and would let you take home some to compare with what you already have in the kitchen. (02/15/2008)

Whatever you decide for counters, go with a quality stainless steel sink. I have been in very expensive new homes with granite counters and they have stainless steel sinks because they are more durable and easier to clean than porcelain and Corian. (02/18/2008)
