Pairing Cabinets and Countertops

 

 

Matching your kitchen cabinets and countertops can be a tricky task. There are hundreds of possibilities for each, which means thousands of different possible combinations. All of these options may get a bit overwhelming, so we’ve assembled this handy guide to walk you through some of your options.

Modern Minimalism

If you prefer a more modern, minimalistic look in your kitchen, you probably want to go with a frameless cabinet with a full overlay type door style that is not too ornate. Or, perhaps a slab door style with a laminate or an exotic veneer. Depending on your preferred color palette, you can go with a solid painted door or go with a wood species with a calmer grain pattern with a stain. Your modern countertops should be something subtle with clean edges blend in with the simple lines of the cabinetry. Choose some sleek stainless steel appliances to go with it, and your new modern kitchen will be complete!

Keep it Traditional

If your tastes tend to be a bit more traditional, you would possibly like framed cabinets with inset doors. Darker woods such as oak, cherry, mahogany, and walnut will add warm tones to your traditional kitchen for that classic feel. A traditional kitchen design involves careful attention to details, such as more ornate door styles and moldings. For your traditional kitchen’s counters, granite, marble, wood or patterned engineered stone will help complete the look.

Best of Both Worlds

If you can’t decide whether to go modern or traditional, your design taste lies somewhere in the middle. Transitional style is a beautiful combination of modern and traditional that is sure to create a beautiful kitchen. Before starting on your transitional kitchen design project, it is important to have a clear theme in mind. It may help you to search for design ideas on the internet and print pictures of elements that you like from both modern and traditional. Allow your designer can help you figure out how to put them together.
