How To Match Our Kitchen Cabinets to the Perfect Countertops

When it comes to designing your dream kitchen, the perfect combination of cabinets and countertops is critical for success. Once you choose your kitchen cabinet series from Custom Service Hardware, it’s helpful to know which countertops match that style. Here are some of our most popular kitchen cabinet styles along with expert design tips about how to select the ideal countertops to complement them.

1. Shaker Cabinets

Shaker-style cabinets are known for their clean lines, classic charm, and timeless appeal. From light gray and white to stained woods and painted cabinets in soothing neutrals, our shaker cabinets deliver the exact look you want. 

These countertops consistently pair well with shaker cabinets:

  • Quartz. Durable and low-maintenance, quartz countertops complement the simplicity of shaker cabinets.
  • Granite. Enhance your space with the timeless beauty of natural granite. Go bold with darker shades like charcoal or emerald for a dramatic statement, or keep it light and airy with white or cream hues.
  • Butcher Block. For a warm and inviting feel, match shaker cabinets with butcher block countertops to add a touch of rustic charm.

3. Dark Wood Cabinets

Dark wood kitchens exude richness and warmth, and our stained wood and painted wood cabinet collections include many handsome choices for homeowners who want this on-trend aesthetic. We offer modern dark wood cabinets as well as lush, woodsy browns with visible grain. Deep, watery gray and smooth, coffee brown tones for cabinets are some of our most popular styles for creating the contemporary, “moody” kitchen.

These countertops balance the dark tones of the cabinets beautifully:

  • Granite.The speckled patterns of granite provide visual interest and contrast to dark wood cabinets.
  • Dark Quartz. Dark quartz countertops complement the deep hues of the cabinets, giving you a cohesive look.
  • Soapstone. Embrace the unique beauty of soapstone countertops. Their natural dark gray patina enhances the depth and character of your kitchen cabinets.

4. Natural Toned Kitchens

Kitchens with a natural color palette are hot, hot, hot right now, and you’ll find plenty of stunning natural toned cabinet series at Custom Service Hardware. Our popular Galaxy Timber series as well as the rustic cabinets from Legend offer the look of freshly cut wood for an authentic cabin vibe. The Essex and Dover Truffle Series are favorites of homeowners embracing the latest blend of brown and gray tones to achieve the perfect woodland shade of kitchen cabinets. 

Cabinets in natural tones look fantastic with countertops in complementary nature-inspired materials:

  • Wood. Embrace the natural theme by opting for wooden countertops, creating a harmonious connection with the cabinet colors.
  • Stone: Complete the look of nature with granite, quartzite, or quartz countertops in earthy tones like green, brown, or gray. The natural variations will add visual interest and complement the wood cabinets.
  • Recycled Plastic. Make an eco-conscious choice with recycled plastic countertops. This durable and earth-friendly option comes in a range of colors, including vibrant, cheerful tones for a pop of contrast.
Contemporary wood cabinets create a natural look for kitchens that is enhanced by wood, stone, or recycled plastic countertops.

5. Two-Toned Kitchen Cabinets

Two-toned kitchen cabinets, where the base cabinets and wall cabinets are different colors or materials, add a touch of modern flair. The Blue Topaz Series by Sunnywood makes an excellent choice paired with any of our white kitchen cabinets. The painted cabinet series by Legend lends itself to the two-toned design with one dark color that pairs with any of the light colors in the series. Mix-and-match your cabinet colors to create visual interest and add depth to your kitchen space.

Your countertops in a two-toned kitchen need to tie the contrasting colors together. These choices work well:

  • Contrasting Stone. Choose a quartz, granite, or soapstone countertop color that contrasts with one of the cabinet tones, creating a visually striking effect.
  • Patterns: Opt for countertops with patterns or veining to add interest and tie together the two cabinet colors seamlessly.
  • Neutrals: If your two-toned cabinets are close in shade, use neutral countertops like white, gray, or beige to create a sense of harmony and cohesion.
