How To Pair Your Cabinets And Counters

It’s only the first thing you think of when you start remodeling your kitchen; “What color do I want my cabinets?” Well, they are the thing that takes up the most space in your kitchen, so that makes sense. Some people will pick their countertops first, because it is the most expensive part. But truth be told, there is no right or wrong order to do it in.

Getting Inspired

If you choose the countertop first, the next thing will be cabinets. If you choose cabinets first, the next thing will be countertops. There are an infinite number of combinations you can put them in as well. Which makes it seem like an overwhelming task. Have no fear though, Reynolds Renovations is here.

Choosing The Right Contrast

If you have decided to go with darker colored cabinets, then it would be good to go with lighter counters. They tend to reflect light very well, keeping the room from being too dark. Regardless of whether you are going for a traditional or more contemporary style, this light and dark combination works well together. So if you go with a cherry or chocolate pear cabinet, think more of a lighter granite for your counter.
Another option would be white quartz. Really bright whites go great with those darker wood tones. Again, this pairing will go great with any style.

How Many Shades Of Gray?

Gray is a very popular choice for both cabinets and counters. Why? Because it goes well with almost any color palette. Any medium hue or tone is going to pair perfectly with gray counters. You just can’t go wrong, even with a darker colored cabinet.

Think About Resale

Another thing to consider when remodeling your kitchen is the resale value of your home. If you are not going to stay where you are forever, then your design should be something widely accepted by buyers. And Reynolds Renovations will help you with how to pair your cabinets and counters.
