Choose these cabinet colors with dark hardwood flooring

You love your dark hardwood flooring but wonder about cabinet colors. You want the room to stand out and make a stunning design statement.

What colors work best? Any color can work as long as it is the right shade. Here are some smart tips.

Don?t worry about exact matching

Intense contrasts are dramatic, sophisticated, and downright sexy.??

White is always a great choice. The black-and-white palette is classic and has been popular in interior plans for decades.

Brilliant ("refrigerator") white works well in rooms that don't have a lot of light. Off-white lends extra warmth when paired with dark hardwood floors.

Other good color choices

Blue cabinets are making a splash. There's also a lot of interest in green, wood tones, and earthy colors. The organic, "bringing the outdoors in" look is trending hot.

If you want to go for it, try a dual-toned cabinet?with the top one color and the bottom another.

Be mindful of undertones

Wood flooring, wood cabinets, and casegoods will have undertones (secondary colors). They can be warm or cool.

Generally, it's not a good idea to mix them up. It gives off a chaotic vibe.??

But gray cabinets work well with your dark wood flooring in Seattle, WA. They have many gradients (color progressions) from light to deep to dark.??

Balance is key

It would be best if you kept an all-dark color palette. Done well, it can look great.

Be sure you have plenty of natural light and reflective surfaces. And break it up by adding lighter trims, finishes, accents, textures, and elements.
