Kitchen remodeling is a great way to modernize your home, elevate your living spaces, and increase the overall value of your property. As you begin the process, selecting the right granite countertops and cabinets so they work cohesively within the kitchen is critical. To ensure both elements are complementary and match to your satisfaction, embrace the tips noted below.
4 Tips to Ensure Your Granite Countertops & Cabinets Match
1. Choose Granite Countertops First
Granite is a unique stone that will contain various eye-catching shades and patterns. Since this material will be a key piece of your new kitchen and cannot be easily altered once in place, choose your countertops first. This way, you can invest in cabinets and paint or stain them appropriately to match your chosen counters.
2. Select Cabinet Color
After you’ve chosen your granite countertops, focus on finding the perfect wood stain for your cabinets. If you’re interested in a modern, clean kitchen, finding a stain that’s close in color to create a monochrome look will create a tidy, eye-catching appeal that can make the room look expansive. Another way to ensure your cabinets and counters match is to coordinate accent colors you see within the granite. Focusing on a particular undertone and matching your cabinet stain accordingly will ensure a cohesive look.
3. Decide on Cuts & Cabinet Design
Are you a fan of modern, single tone kitchens, or are you interested in a farmhouse chic space in cozy, complementary colors? The cut of your granite countertops and your cabinet style are bold ways to show off your design aesthetic. Cabinets with glass windows and open shelving provide an opportunity to show off your tableware, especially if you like to keep an organized and easily accessible kitchen. European cabinets, on the other hand, can be sleek and perfectly conceal kitchen accessories. If you’re planning a kitchen island and you don’t require additional cabinet space underneath, make a luxurious statement by requesting your granite with a waterfall edge that goes beyond just the countertop portion.
4. Choose Your Hardware
After you’ve signed off on granite, wood stain, cabinetry, and countertop design, it’s time to turn your eye to selecting hardware, from your cabinet pulls to your sink faucets. These elements are available in cool undertones that accentuate your color palette or understated brushed metal to coordinate with larger appliances. Determine whether these elements are going to be focal points to accent the room or background meant to coordinate with your existing palette.
