Pairing dark cabinets with light worktops

Black cabinets are rising in popularity, along with other dark kitchen shades. And this is a great way to create a visually interesting and usual space. But what kind of worktops should you use? Well, this is down to your individual kitchen requirements, and your personal preference. Dark worktops can be very striking, but light worktops can create an interesting contrast effect. Here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design specialists. As a result, we have produced this guide to pairing dark cabinets with light worktops.

Pairing dark cabinets with light worktops

Using dark cabinets with a light worktop can be very effective. You could:

  • Use just one light worktop- if you have a kitchen island, why not use a light worktop for this space, and dark worktops for the rest of the kitchen. This will turn your kitchen island into an impressive feature, and create a space of visual contrast that will impress any visitors, or potential buyers.
  • Use all light worktops- alternatively, you could use light worktops across your kitchen. This will be effective for either contemporary or traditional kitchens, depending on the material you choose, and the finish option you go for. It also helps to create a stunning space that uses contrast to make a bold statement.
  • Pair light worktops with light tiles- if you have a splash-back zone or tiled space behind your pale worktop, you could opt for tiles in a similar colour. This will visually expand the worktop, and create a dramatic space and effect.
  • Pair light worktops with light accessories- stools and chairs for your breakfast bar or seating area, or even your kitchen appliances, can be chosen to match the light coloured worktops in your kitchen. This will help weave the light and dark colours together throughout the kitchen space, and create a stylish, contemporary effect.
