Designing a kitchen, bathroom, or office will require you to choose a style and coordinate colors of cabinets with counters, appliances, flooring, and more. If you have chosen white cabinets for your home, it can be difficult to know what colors or materials will fit. Rasmussen Custom Cabinetry can build any cabinet or shelving that you can dream of while helping to bring the room design together. Here are some tips for matching your white cabinets to other home elements.
Choose Three Colors
When designing a kitchen or bathroom, a way to make coordinating elements easier is to choose two main colors and one accent color. This can help you see what options look good together before installing anything permanent. Some color options you can try include:
- Black, white, and blue
- White, black, and gray
- Brown, white, and yellow
- White, brown, and green
- Black, white, and green
- Gray, white, and red
The combinations are endless, but choosing two neutral colors with one bolder accent is the best way to ensure your room looks cohesive. Choosing an accent color for smaller elements makes it easier to update your space by switching out the color. For example, choosing white cabinets with a gray countertop, and blue backsplash will be cheaper to replace or change than blue cabinets.
Dark Or Bright Colored Countertops
White cabinets look great with an accent color to contrast their starkness. Choosing dark countertops or a marbled-colored countertop can make your white cabinet doors pop. Choosing a countertop color first can make coordinating the rest of your elements easier. While your cabinets make a statement, choosing countertops will give you more color options to play with and explore.
If you have your heart set on white cabinets, you can still choose countertops that will fit well. For bathrooms or kitchens, choosing a countertop that is durable is the most important but neutral countertops look best in modern homes.
Backsplashes That Add Depth
Going for white cabinets means you will need to add depth in other places. One great way to do this is with your backsplash. Subway tiles, glass tiles, or mosaics can keep the simple modern vibe you are going for while helping to add depth to your space.
A backsplash is also a great place to use your accent color. Often times you can incorporate two of your colors into the backsplash to create a more interesting look. Remember that your backsplash is an extension of your countertops, so make sure they also match.
Stainless Steel Appliances
A clean modern look can be achieved with white cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Steel is a good option to bring the whole room together if you are unsure what to do about hardware. Steel appliances can help make your home feel more expensive and timeless, so this option will keep your kitchen looking pristine for multiple years.
Add Color With Rugs
A textured or colored rug is a great way to incorporate white cabinets into your space. Rugs can be interchanged and removed whenever you like, so adding a pop of color to a rug is never permanent. Using a rug or window treatment to add a pop of color will make your white cabinets stand out among the other neutral elements like counters and flooring.
Use Your Secondary Color For Flooring
Your flooring often will coordinate with your countertop color, but making the flooring your secondary color can add some elegance to your home. If you have white cabinets and black countertops, using dark wood is a great contrast. Those with a traditional style will find this color scheme highly appealing because it looks sleek.
If you have a more modern taste, using another neutral for your accent color may not appeal to you. Modern kitchens can often use neutrals but adding a pop of color in a backsplash or tile flooring will be more up your alley.
