After choosing your preferred color, browse samples within that color subset. You'll find there are three basic patterns -- solid, marbled, and speckled. Solid granite has little variation in pattern, marbled granite has a smooth transition between color and texture, and speckled granite shows a lot of variation in color and texture. Additionally, you can pick between the typical high-gloss finish or a honed finish.
A kitchen layout is more than a footprint of your kitchen—it's a blueprint for how your kitchen will function. In general, there are three types of kitchen layouts: U-shape, L-shape, and galley kitchens, plus various combinations of each. An open kitchen layout employing any one of the three standard layouts is another popular option.
For retro-style countertops, check out diner- or vintage-look laminates with fun and funky patterns like boomerangs, elongated diamonds, and mod geometrics. If laminate doesn't suit your tastes, stainless-steel countertops meld beautifully with retro styles. Certain types of stones work well, too, especially terrazzo, which comes in colors as varied as pink and turquoise. Kitchen backsplashes can be retro cool, too. Re-create the classic look of simple white subway tiles with gray or dark grout. Other retro backsplash choices includes beaded board, decorative tile, and laminate that repeats from countertops.
In addition to personal collections, adding a personal touch is also one of the surefire ways to make the home room decor feel more homey. The simplest personal touch you could give as a ”living room“ decoration is the collection of photo frames of yourself plus your family.
