Once you have white cabinets in kitchen, it`s time to add a suitable kitchen countertop. Granite countertops look extremely classy with white cabinets. In case of antique white cabinets, you can opt for brown or black colored granite. White cabinets with dark countertops, especially in black, look simply awesome. You can also have marble countertop in dark color for white cabinets. Remember that countertops are equally prominent and hence, need to be chosen properly. These must essentially complement your kitchen cabinets.
Though this theme centers more around wooden colors and elements, there are ways in which you can incorporate black in the scheme of your kitchen design. One of the best ways to do so is by installing distressed cabinets that will not look too modern and, in fact, fit in perfectly with your overall design. For the best look, don`t combine these pieces of furniture with any other color, or they will take away the attention from the distressed furniture pattern you have tried to create. With their well-defined molding and similar elements, they are the most suitable choice for this theme. Use warm colors such as the rich, golden-yellow backdrop or even kitchen countertops in this color, against which the cabinets will stand out, to create a comfortable, cozy combination while working around this theme. An important element to consider in this overall theme is the flooring. Nothing speaks rustic more than the diamond tile pattern. A black-and-white, diamond-checkered pattern on the floor will help you complete the look. Of course, you can always experiment with the flooring patterns, but this is one of the traditional looks that completes almost any room based on a rustic theme.
Quirky, out-of-the-box cabinet doors allow you to increase the artistic appeal of your home and kitchen in particular. The grooves and patterns that you can try out are numerous and known to add style to your cabinets. Wire mesh-inspired doors though, require a lot of maintenance to keep them looking new for a long period of time. You can opt for a glass-backed grill-style cabinet door to enhance the look of the kitchen.
When you are having a white plus another color to grace your kitchen, make sure that white covers not less than 70 - 75% of the entire design. Also, avoid adding more than two colors in the kitchen design. Consider the color of tiles, flooring and paint. Ensure that the color of kitchen appliances also matches with the theme. Make sure you choose the best handles for cabinets.
As mentioned earlier, you can create a combination of colors in cabinets if you find black too overpowering, even within the contemporary design framework. Use colors such as gray and white, perhaps, with a dash of red to create the perfect combination. The combination can also be attained in terms of such black furniture pieces and white flooring, and perhaps, red chairs at your breakfast table. Also, use a bright backsplash to complete this look. As overdone as you may find this color combination, nothing speaks contemporary better than this one.
Add flair to the cabinets with frosted glass cabinet doors. It is better than clear glass doors as it succeeds from hiding stuff behind it, giving them a hazy appearance. You can use it to camouflage your pots and pans, and is especially beneficial to create a warm, fuzzy atmosphere.
