10 KITCHEN COUNTERTOPS AND CABINETS IDEAS TO UPDATE YOUR KITCHEN
When designing a new kitchen it is safe to say that we are looking for a wow factor as much as we are for functionality. After many years of working with some of the best professionals in the industry, we’ve come to understand that the wow factor can be achieved with two simple things: the materials and finishes you choose and how they mix to create balance within your space.
If you are looking for inspiration, keep scrolling through this blog post to find our top 5 kitchen countertops and cabinet projects that bring in that wow factor.
High-gloss cabinets and matte stone
Matte countertops seamlessly work together with glossy cabinets to bring a sleek look into your kitchen. This idea can be applied to your kitchen with a monochromatic look or add a splash of glossy color.
A tone-on-tone look adds depth while keeping the design simple. Start with your preferred natural stone in your color of choice and then work with cabinet paint to match the rest of your kitchen. You can elevate and modernize the design by creating a monochromatic look with walls, trims, windows, and moldings.
Vein color matching
Pairing the color of the veins of your natural stone with your cabinet color might seem like an obvious choice. Especially when working with white marble. However, there are several ways in which this idea can be implemented to create a unique kitchen look. You can either work with quartz that presents veins in bold colors like blues and greens or work with the undertones of the veins. For example, Calacatta marble veins usually have a pink and red undertone. The resulting design has the warmth you’d find in a premier hospitality space but with the intimacy of a home kitchen.

There’s a reason why we call them classics. When working with neutrals there are endless possibilities. A jaw-dropping neutral kitchen can be achieved with high contrast and textured materials that will inevitably add drama and warmth to any space. Try working with various shades of marble in ranges from pure to white with different finishes.

Using bright colors like red, green, blue, or yellow can be daunting, but complementary colors work naturally work together. Using complementary colors for a kitchen is perfect for lovers of fashion and color who are willing to abandon a timeless look for a bold choice.
