With hundreds of choices of countertops and cabinetry, it can be difficult for a homeowner to decide what color combination to use in their kitchen or bathroom. Some of the most common cabinets are white, maple, gray, oak, and cherry. Deciding on whether to top your cabinets with quartz, marble, or granite can be challenging. However, with our help, you will be able to determine the best countertop for your cabinetry based on your unique needs, decorating style, and style of home.
White cabinets provide you with a neutral canvas, allowing you to choose a variety of countertop colors, wall paint colors, and accents. White cabinets will not overwhelm your space, allowing you to create your dream kitchen or bathroom. Finally, white cabinets provide a more sanitary feel than other colored cabinets.
Gray cabinets are all the rage. This color cabinets look amazing and can be used to create different effects throughout your home. There are many different shades of gray countertops, so it should not be difficult to find the perfect shade of gray for your kitchen or bathroom. Gray looks great with warm countertops like wood countertops, black countertops, and unexpected colored cabinets.
Maple cabinets are an affordable cabinet option that takes stain well and they are quite durable. When left natural, they provide a neutral backdrop and can be paired with a number of countertop options. You can pair maple countertops with bold onyx countertops, gray flecked countertops, or green soapstone.
Oak cabinets, including white oak and red oak, are often found in traditional kitchens and bathrooms. Homeowners love this type of wood due to its durability. Oak cabinets work with any countertop color imaginable. Whether you want a bright color pop offered by enamel coated lava countertops, traditional marble countertops, or black soapstone, your kitchen and bath will look amazing.
Cherry cabinets add warmth to an often cold feeling space. Cherry’s satin grain blends wonderfully with other wood species to create an elegant and luxurious home. You can use both warm and cool colored countertops with cherry cabinets.
In addition to choosing the best countertop colors for your kitchen or bath, you should consider the accent colors used in these spaces. Accent colors are used to add a touch of interest to an otherwise dull space.
A popping accent color can look amazing in any room; however, a bright and bold accent color looks especially phenomenal in a monochromatic room. Black cabinetry with white quartz countertops creates interest in the kitchen. When you pair it with brass lighting fixtures, you can create interest and definition.
