Finding the Perfect Countertop to Match Your Kitchen

If you’re renovating your Dallas kitchen, you may be facing the common issue of deciding which countertop material will best match your design. If you’ve already chosen your flooring and your cabinets, you’ll then need to choose a stone countertop material that complements your choices. However, envisioning what will work in the space isn’t always easy for everyone. If you need help deciding what countertop will be perfect for your kitchen, read this convenient guide before ordering from your stone distributor.

For Dark Wood Cabinets

Dark wood cabinets are very versatile in that they can work for contemporary or traditional design schemes. The main deciding factor in what countertop will work best lies in the undertone of your cabinets. If your cabinets are a warm-toned dark wood, opt for a classic choice like granite. Granite will lend itself to a more traditional design and emphasize the warm tones throughout the space, creating a more inviting environment. If your dark wood cabinets are cool-toned, however, choose a more modern material such as quartz or marble. Create stunning contrast by choosing a white marble, or keep the room minimal by pairing your dark wood with a dark grey or black quartz.

For Cherry Cabinets

If your flooring and/or cabinets are made of cherry wood or mahogany, granite will finish your design off perfectly. Choose a granite countertop with warm, golden tones such as Oxford Gold or Lapidus, or opt for something like Emerald Pearl if you want a darker space that will create more ambiance.

For Light Wood Cabinets

Light wood cabinets have similar versatility to dark wood, but unlike dark wood, you run a high risk of making your kitchen look one-note and washed out if you choose the wrong countertop. Try to stay away from beige or golden countertop materials like some granites, as these could match too closely to your cabinetry and blend in. The key to achieving visual interest in a kitchen with light wood is contrast. One option is to incorporate stunning prefabricated marble countertops in a bright white. The white paired with the light wood will open up the space and make it more airy while still offering enough contrast between the two tones for strong visual appeal. Conversely, you can also choose a dark granite to achieve this contrasted effect. Where white marble or quartz will modernize the space, dark granite and light wood are a traditional pairing that offers a classic design that’s never dated. 

For Sleek, White Cabinets

If you have shiny white cabinets for a modern kitchen, the best countertop solution will be anything with a neutral color palette. Stay away from warm tones such as golden granites or marbles. Instead, choose whites, cool greys, and simple blacks. Avoid too much texture or speckling in your countertop material. If you choose prefabricated marble countertops, veining should be subtle and still within this neutral color family. Quartz is one of the best options for this cabinetry, as it is an affordable and highly durable material that instantly modernizes any design with its minimalistic finishes.
