Cabinet Color

The correct cabinet color can provide any size kitchen a space with character and comfort. This is one of the most distinguished visuals a person sees when walking into a kitchen.

You can save money by choosing the perfect paint color, giving any cabinet a custom look and taking a few hours of your time. This is exactly why the design tool provides you with so many choices for a look that is made just for you.

Bright colors

Brighter kitchen cabinets are a popular choice for kitchens because they make smaller kitchens appear bigger and provide additional light to the space. Brighter colored kitchens are commonly found in traditional and contemporary homes. Lighter colors increase the appearance of your kitchen, making the kitchen appear bigger in size. Bright cabinet colors are a great way to highlight additional colors you place throughout your kitchen.

Dark Colors

Using contrasting colors in the kitchen easily grabs the attention of guests upon entering the room. A darker colored kitchen leaves a lot of room for creativity and diminishes any boundaries a brighter kitchen may have. Darker kitchens leave room for updates or changes you might want to make later on. Accent colors really pop with darker cabinets and give your kitchen space a unique look and feel.


Countertops are an important aspect in any kitchen and connect all the features from start to finish. A countertop can bring a lot to the table in terms of design aesthetics, including color, boldness and a unique sense of texture. . Begin with imagining what accessories will be placed on top of the counters and visualize what design will fit best. Your counters will go through scratches, stains, and abrasive cleaners throughout the years, so it is important to consider the countertop material before jumping in and choosing your preferred colors.

Natural Stone

Natural stone offers a wider color selection than most countertops, and delivers a consistent look throughout the kitchen. This type of counter is commonly found in homes and is more affordable than some other countertop materials. Along with the variety of colors this stone offers, the edges can be hand crafted to make the smaller details more apparent. The product is offered in solid natural colors and a mix of colors with various textures. Natural stone countertops are susceptible to scratches and stains if they are not properly maintained, but besides that, require very little maintenance and can handle common cleaners. Unlike countertops such as laminate, natural stone is heat-resistant and does not accumulate mold or bacteria. This helps avoid the spread of germs that first begin in the kitchen. If you’re looking for a way to deliver a constant look for your kitchen in a more affordable price than other countertops, picking a natural stone for your countertop is just what you need.
