Combining light woods with white countertops creates an inviting and airy space. Whitney Leigh Morris of THE TINY CANAL COTTAGE chose to keep her existing wood cabinetry, but replaced the dark granite with versatile TORQUAY™ countertops to complement her beach bungalow home. River white granite from India has a delicate white base that is enriched with dark grey veins and deep red burgundy spots wood beams for porch and flecks. River white granite complements various wood tones, such as grey, cream, brown, medium brown, light white, dark coffee, and multi-coloured mosaic backsplash. The range of dark blue, red-brown, and azure specks provide multiple options for complementary backsplash, floor and cabinets. Metallic tones and clean white with white ice granite complement various architectural styles.
The wood cabinets suit high-traffic kitchens since they are highly durable and resistant to chips, knocks and cracks. And since the reddish-brown tone of the wood can darken over time, homeowners can stain the material to achieve a uniform color. To complete this traditional style, homeowners can opt for countertop shades like 6141 Ocean Foam. Pairing reclaimed wood cabinets with white countertops achieves a striking contrast and adds a unique character to the space. For a modern-rustic vibe, a countertop like 5000 London Grey would work beautifully. The combination of dark wood cabinets with white countertops creates a stylish contrast.
With additional white cabinets under the sink and island, there is plenty of backdrops to allow the blue to shine. “Whether your space is big or small, a two-toned effect adds instant drama to any well-designed space,” Makk says. When mixing colors, don’t be afraid to opt for unconventional materials and textures to bring the drama.
This blue and white kitchen proves that the dynamic design can look and feel traditional. Located in a Carroll Gardens Townhouse in Brooklyn, the white subway tile backsplash, navy blue lower cabinets, and white upper shelving create a timeless look. Try using gold hardware like this to tie the varied elements together. Keep in mind all of these woods can be stained to your liking so if darker cabinets are your preference you can choose dark woods with a darker stain for your custom dark wood cabinets.
Well, gold/brass is usually a yellow-toned metal finish, and some cabinets are too orange/red-toned for this yellow-gold look. Doing aged brass is often a better fit, but both can be considerably more expensive than black or polished nickel. ORB is another beautiful finish with wood cabinets but is usually better with oak than cherry or maple . If you’re looking for a low-contrast look, antique brass is a beautiful finish with oak cabinets, but definitely tougher to pull off unless you have mad style and the right cabinets . The bonus is that most oak cabinets have hinges in this finish, so that’s one less thing to worry about. However, if you have black hinges that are on FULL-exposure (in other words, it’s not just the little edge showing), it’s a hard no from this cowgirl.
A white kitchen is also attractive to prospective home buyers due to its timelessness and versatility. The best kitchen paint colors work together harmoniously to create a clean, welcoming environment. Watch and learn how to build a color scheme in your kitchen that does exactly that. Homeowners can experiment with various gray wood cabinet and white countertop combinations. For instance, polished dark gray cabinets and a soft white countertop color like 5121 Layalite can achieve a stylish and unique look in a space. Naturalness and brightness… One way to reach that feeling is with light wooden design work functioning as both a natural ingredient and a visual anchor for the room.
