When choosing the color of your new countertops it's important to consider what will go with your current space. Unless you are completely redoing the cabinets, you might be worried about picking the right countertop color to complete the perfect overall look.

Countertop Colors That Go With White Cabinets

White cabinets provide a bright and airy feel that can make small spaces feel bigger. White cabinets also open up a wide variety of complimentary color options as just about any countertop color works with white cabinets. However, a popular trend is to have an all white kitchen. Choosing a white countertop will make your kitchen or bathroom look even brighter and is a great choice if you don't have a lot of strong lighting. If you don't want a pure white countertop, going with a grainy white, or one with flecks of color is always an excellent choice. 

Here are a few white-colored countertops that we love:

-Salt Lake

-Big Sur Mist


However, pairing dark countertops with white cabinets give a dramatic and unique look. You could go with a dark gray, or pure black for a modern look for a contemporary kitchen. Here are our top choices for dark countertops: 

-Chicago Tower

-Montana Midnight

-Black Rock

Countertop Colors That Go With Dark Cabinets

Darker woods offer a sense of comfort or could feel more like modern space, depending on the style of cabinets and hardware. With dark cabinets, we recommend a light or white-colored countertop color. This will really make your counters the focal point of the room. Like white cabinets with dark countertops, the contrast of the color will make your room feel dramatic. 

Here are a few colors that we love pairing with dark cabinets:

-Snowdon White


- Seacourt



Countertop Colors That Go With Maple or Oak Cabinets

If you have a traditional kitchen or bathroom, you may have maple or oak cabinets. These cabinets have a more neutral color scheme that can fit with just about any popular countertop colors. When choosing a countertop for oak or maple cabinets, make sure you pick something that goes with your floors. If you have a floor that is a busy pattern, you may want to pick a simple countertop. 

Here are good choice colors that we love to pair with oak:



- Ashbourne Matte



Countertop Colors That Go With Cherry Cabinets

Cherry cabinets have a beautiful red tone, but they can be hard to match. We recommend going with light or dark countertops, but make sure to get something with a warm undertone. Pairing countertops that have a cool undertone could make your space clash.

These warm colors that are a good option with cherry:


-New Quay




Countertop Colors That Go With Painted Cabinets

One of the latest trends is painted cabinets. This style of cabinets can add a pop of color to any room with a wide variety of cabinet colors. If your cabinets are a mid to dark color, we would recommend going with a white or light countertop. However, if your painted cabinets are a lighter color, a mid or dark color is a great choice. Just like with the cherry cabinets, make sure you pick countertops that match in undertone, that way your cabinets and counters don't clash.

Here are some countertop looks that we love for colored cabinets:

-Black Rock

- Charston

- Talbot Gray
