Matching Countertop Colors & Cabinets
posted Sep 19 2018
If you are remodeling your home, you know there are many different combinations to choose from. Completing your kitchen remodeling is an exciting time, but it can also be stressful. Between the numerous flooring, cabinetry, and countertop options available in Atlanta, it can be hard to make a final decision.
It’s important you don’t get overwhelmed when choosing countertop colors that match your cabinets. Here are three simple tricks:
Pick a Color Scheme
There are thousands of different colors to choose from for your walls, floors, counters, and cabinets. Choosing 3 colors for your kitchen’s color scheme will give it a balanced and charming look. You should choose two dominant colors and one accent color. Your two dominant colors should be used for your cabinets and countertops. The accent color you choose should be easily replaceable, so you can re-decorate your kitchen easier in the future. Look for accent-colored items such as small kitchen appliances, dishware, curtains, and other things like hand towels.
Use Contrasting Styles
Using contrasting styles for your countertops and cabinets will help keep your kitchen’s appearance balanced. If your cabinets are very detailed and busy looking, you should choose a simple countertop, such as a solid surfacing counter. On the other hand, if your cabinets are simple looking, you will want a beautifully patterned countertop that will make a statement. Granite and quartz counters are the perfect durable, yet sophisticated option. These countertops come in over 150 different types in Atlanta. If you have detailed cabinets and want granite or quartz countertops, you can try using a simple or modest flooring to offset and balance your kitchen details.
Because most countertop and cabinets are expensive to replace, it’s important you think long-term. Spend as much time as you need to make sure you are choosing a countertop that is the right style and color. Using common colors for your cabinets and counters, like whites, blacks, and browns will allow you to change your accessories and the style of your kitchen, without the huge price.
Think about what you want to draw the most attention in your kitchen. If you want your countertops to stand out, pick a color that is different from your cabinets and flooring. For example, a lighter shade of granite with dark black cabinets and brown hardwoods would make your counters “pop!” The opportunities for your kitchen remodel are endless, but if you use contrasting styles with complementary colors, you cannot make a wrong choice.
