What are the considerations when matching countertops with kitchen cabinets?
If you want your kitchen worktops to match the kitchen cabinets there are a number of important considerations to take into account, which include:
- Choosing the colour scheme- for a cohesive kitchen design you can choose to match the countertype colours to the kitchen worktop colour, or you can use a complementary colour or a contrasting colour, depending on your preferences and the type of kitchen you are creating. Opting for a colour where first will help you make more effective choices about the material of the worktop and the finish options.
- Choosing the worktop material- there are a wide range of effective material choices for any kitchen worktop or countertops, including wood and stone effect, quartz and other composites, and even solid surfaces. The colour scheme you are opting for can help to narrow down your material choices although many types of worktop are available in a wide range of colours. The material will also need to match effectively with the overall design of the kitchen, as well as material used, and finish used, for the kitchen cabinets. Acrylic cabinets or wood effect cabinets for example will pair more effectively with countertops of the same material and finish.
- Choosing the worktop shape- while kitchen cabinets tend to all have the same shape it is possible to choose a worktop with a curved or rounded design. This pairs most effectively with contemporary design and contemporary kitchen cabinets.
