kitchen with new countertops

In the kitchen, the eye is naturally drawn to the countertops and the cabinets. That's why it's important that you choose the right styles and colours so that the two either match or complement each other to create a pleasing atmosphere.

Are you wondering what the best countertops would be for your kitchen? To learn some tips for choosing countertops that match your cabinets, continue reading this article!


The overall colour scheme of the kitchen is equally as important as the colours and patterns of the countertops. The perfect matching countertops must take into account both factors.

There are many options available if you want to have a wide range of colour options as well as a durable material, including granite, quartz, solid surface, and marble. For instance, granite counters have naturally occurring veiny patterns that can add a touch of elegance to the overall design of your kitchen.

Choose dark or gray countertops if the theme of your kitchen is bright or light. Despite being a classic pairing of black and white, it looks stunning and is always in style.

Black countertops with grainy patterns add a luxurious touch to any style of kitchen, whether you choose a traditional or minimalist design. In contrast, a kitchen that is "all white" may come off as sterile and uninspired.


You need to be extremely careful when choosing your countertops and keep in mind that they should enhance the kitchen cabinets.

If you have dark or gray cabinets, you can either choose a traditional light and dark combination or go with dark cabinets and dark countertops in a light-coloured kitchen.

You can add a splash of colour to your kitchen by complimenting your quartz or granite countertop with a mosaic or vibrant backsplash. If the right decisions are made, the combinations are limitless.


Do your island countertops need to match your perimeter countertops? This is something you should consider. The answer is no. If you're wondering why, it's because the island is there to make a unique fashion statement.

There isn't a full scenario of cabinets and backsplash surrounding it, so you can give it a unique appearance that stands out.

While you can still match it to the perimeter countertops, going with something that goes well with that will really make a statement. For instance, if your island's countertops are dark with textured perimeter ones that are light, keep the cabinets the same in both areas.

Additionally, light coloured island countertops that contrast dark perimeter countertops look fantastic!


Your guests will be delighted when they step into your kitchen and see that your countertops mesh perfectly with the cabinets. After all, kitchen countertops are a focal point; they should match the theme of the room while serving as valuable space for storage and cooking.
