That is why Coastal Flooring put together this list of tips on how to match kitchen countertops with cabinets in order to make your decision a bit easier.

Our Tips on How To Match Kitchen Countertops With Cabinets

There are many important factors to consider when putting together your kitchen including:


As it is generally considered the focal point of the kitchen, picking the right countertop should be your first decision. This will allow you to design your cabinets around the material chosen. There are quite a few different countertop materials to choose between with each their own strengths and weaknesses. Here are some of the most popular materials:

  • Quartz – The “engineered” stone countertop, this material is quite popular due to its elegant look and durability. As it is man-made, it doesn’t need to be resealed like other natural stones & is resistant to water.
  • Marble – A timeless classic. Marble is often used due to its luxurious look and its ability to remain cold, ideal for baking ingredients.
  • Granite – A natural stone that is very durable. It is well known for each slab being unique and distinct from one another.
  • Quartzite – The natural stone counterpart to Quartz. These countertops are ideal for outdoor spaces due to their ability to withstand UV rays, and keep its color.


Color is probably one of the most important aspects of designing your kitchen. A big choice when first picking your colors is whether you want your cabinets to contrast or compliment the countertop. Another factor to consider when picking your colors is the lighting that is being used for the space. The colors can appear more washed out or saturated depending on the amount of light in the room. Color is an important indicator of the feeling a room gives as well. Do you want more vibrant colors, or something more subdued? There are a plethora of color combinations to mix and match to find the right atmosphere that fits the kitchen you want to design.


Another important thing to consider when picking your kitchen countertops & cabinets is what style you want to evoke. There are plenty of cabinet styles that vary what kind of look you want to go with. If you’re looking for a classic look you can go with Shaker Style Cabinetry, or something a little more modern with Recessed Cabinetry. There are many different styles of cabinets to choose from, and it’s best to look through different cabinet styles to find something that matches the aesthetic you’re looking for.

Floor & Backsplash

While not directly related to the countertop or cabinet, the floor and backsplash chosen for the space can drastically affect how these two things look in your kitchen. Each flooring option provides different benefits aesthetically and functionally. If you’re looking for something cost-effective and durable then Laminate is a great choice, or if you’re interested in the long term than a Natural Stone Tile might be more up your speed.
