If your sights are set on dark wood cabinets, you’ll want to balance the deeper tones with lighter hues. Whether they’re a natural wood finish or painted in a solid hue, light cabinets are generally easier to match than darker cupboards. Off-white and ivory cabinets also pair well with white oak, birch, and bamboo planks.
You can also contrast a paler hue with dark stone tiles or water-resistant faux mahogany planks. This doesn’t mean the colors, textures, and finishes won’t match per se, but they should flatter one another.
Floor Factors carries an impressive selection of waterproof and water-resistant floor-covering products from Stanton, Ethereal, Hygge, Lagom, Quick-Step, and other top-rated manufacturers. With this essential design component picked out, you’ll have a clearer idea of which cabinets and countertops to choose. For instance, you might go with ivory cabinets, light oak flooring, a cream-colored backsplash, and brown quartz counters. You can always create contrast with drawer pulls, cabinet knobs, faucets, exposed hardware, lighting, and other fixtures. Choosing timeless colors will give you the flexibility to change the look of your kitchen down the road without the need for another remodel. When in doubt, we recommend a base of light-to-medium neutral colors, like white, off-white, beige, and gray.
