Kitchen Remodeling Tips: How to Match Countertops & Cabinets, Middletown, New Jersey

Kitchen remodeling projects range from simple to complex, but they all share the common goal of giving your culinary space a stylish makeover. One of the best ways to accomplish this is to match your countertops to your cabinets.

Bear in mind that “match” is a relative term where interior design is concerned. You don’t need to seek out identical colors to create a cohesive look—in fact, some variation can add visual interest and make your kitchen unique. Keep these tips in mind when you pick out the countertops and cabinets for your kitchen remodeling project:

  • kitchen remodeling Monmouth County, NJSelect a Cabinet: If you’re installing new cabinets and countertops, choose the cabinet material first. Once you select five or six samples you like, compare those selections against different countertop options. Natural stone, like granite, marble, and quartz, contain color variations. If possible, look at the whole panel instead of just a small section; this way, you’ll get an idea of what the entire countertop will look like once it’s installed in your kitchen.
  • Choose a Scheme: Take time to select a series of colors that look attractive next to one another. Look for undertones by comparing different samples to a color wheel, and decide whether you want to use analogous colors or complementary ones that will create contrast. Remember to consider your flooring, as well.
  • Consider the Size: Is your kitchen large or small? Dark colors are chic but tend to make small spaces look even smaller, while lighter hues will make your kitchen appear brighter and more open. If you want a bold design without making your kitchen look cramped, choose brightly colored accents and opt for neutral tones for your permanent features.
