Choosing Cabinet Paint to Complement Your Countertops
Once you’ve chosen your dream countertops, the search begins for the perfect cabinet paint to complete your vision. But sometimes, it can be hard to know where to start. Should they completely match? Or is too much contrast off-putting? Is it best to be somewhere in the middle? Here, we’ll go over a few basic style combinations to get your space looking fresh and put together!
Light & Airy

If you’re looking to brighten up your space, going with lighter colors for both your countertops and your cabinet paint will do a lot of the heavy lifting. Pair bright appliances with lots of natural light, and you’ll quickly find that your kitchen has become your new “happy place”. To avoid a completely monochrome kitchen, however, you may want to consider adding colorful bar stools or appliances into the mix!
Light Countertops / Dark Cabinets
To achieve a balanced, homey feel for your kitchen, opt for a contrasting design between your kitchen countertops and your cabinets. White quartz countertops paired with deep blue cabinets and gold hardware will quickly transform your space into something worthy of its own feature on HGTV.

One bright accent wall will work in a pinch!
