Pair Dark Colored Cabinets with Granite

Updated:2013-10-30 14:09:02
Dark colored cabinets add elegance and grace to a kitchen, as do granite countertops. Combining the two can create a gorgeous kitchen with a professionally decorated appeal that will make your kitchen a place of beauty -- if you can choose the right combination of cabinet and countertop colors and values. Between your cabinets and countertops, you'll spend quite a bit of money so be cautious and take your time as you decide what will be right for you.

Instructions as follows:

                                                        

Firstly, choose the type of wood that you'd like to use for the cabinets. Different species of woods come in different colors, but only some species of woods are dark. Common examples of dark wood include ebony, cherry, mahogany and walnut. Some of these woods -- cherry and mahogany, in particular -- have a distinctly red or orange tone. Ebony can be nearly black while walnut tends toward dark gray-brown. The type of wood you choose for your cabinets should be matched to the granite. Granite comes in many colors. The color of the cabinets and granite should have a relationship whether they are complementary or matching. For example, a dark granite with shades of dark gold and brown, such as Ubatuba Gold, would match with a dark, rich brown like ebony. Alternatively, a green colored granite can be paired with red-cast cabinets for a complementary color pair.

Secondly, decide how much contrast you'll want to see between the value of the granite and the value of the cabinets. The word "value" in color theory refers to the amount of light or dark that a hue exhibits. In this case, especially if you have not yet chosen a countertop, you will need to decide if your counters will be very light to contrast the cabinets or dark to match the cabinets. This will make a big difference in your kitchen. A dark countertop and dark cabinet pair will make a small kitchen seem even smaller. This same combination might make a very large kitchen seem more intimate. Alternatively, a high contrast pair like light countertops and dark cabinets will create a dramatic split in your kitchen, making the space seem more visually complex.
