Kitchen Cabinets vs. Kitchen Counters—How Each Affects Décor

Kahn-CherryvilleKitchen cabinets and kitchen counters both have a huge effect on your décor.  Mixing both of them into a pleasing style which gives you the look and feel you want in your kitchen can be a trying process, and if chosen poorly, can ruin the look of the kitchen you were hoping for.  On the other hand, if chosen well, the combination makes your kitchen look even better than you had hoped.

Kitchen Cabinets

RTA cabinets are a good and cost-effective choice for your kitchen cabinets.  Not only are they easy to install, but there is an incredible range of styles and colors to choose from.  Your kitchen cabinets should be your base choice when deciding on the décor of your kitchen.  If you have a theme to your home and want to keep it, for example, a lot of light wood or light wooden floors, it’s generally a good idea for your kitchen cabinets to match that.  If you are going to replace the flooring, a good idea is to choose your kitchen cabinets first, which will determine the rest of the kitchen décor.  Whether tiling or a wood floor, and wallpaper or painted walls, it all comes down to matching your cabinetry, which is going to be the centerpiece of your kitchen.

Kitchen Counters

Many types of kitchen counters exist, and almost any size can be ordered for any type of cabinetry.  That being said, your countertop choice will most likely be heavily influenced by your choice of kitchen cabinets.  Counters are, though, a key design element to your kitchen décor.

For example, you want a granite countertop for your kitchen, because you have heard that they are the best.  That being said, each slab section is unique and can be anywhere across the board, from bold to muted with great striations.  Granite kitchen counters, though, go best with wood or darker-themed cabinets.  If you choose a lighter style kitchen, you will most likely need to go with a quartz countertop.  The good part about these is that they are engineered to fit personal preferences, including color, thickness, gloss or matte finish, and any type of edge profile requested.
