Want to spice up your kitchen? Add some contrast and style by mixing and matching material along your kitchen perimeter and kitchen island or mixing and matching themes—all in one kitchen! Here are some guidelines, ideas and inspiration.
1. Consider your floor and cabinets
Your flooring should already be a natural contrast. Think about what colors you could add for your stone countertops that already match your cabinetry and flooring. You should be able to name several!
For example, dark brown hard wood flooring, white cabinets, white and grey veined stone for the kitchen perimeter, and a beautiful, colorful blue stone for the kitchen island. What a way to bring life and boldness to your kitchen!
2. Wooden cabinets
To add some warmth and an earthy, beachy feel to your kitchen, consider using wooden cabinetry along with marble countertops to bring both an element of sophistication and relaxation!
3. Dark & Bright
If you love both the boldness of dark stone and the lightness and brightness or white stone-combine them both! EMG suggests using a dark granite or quartz for your kitchen perimeter and a beautiful, bright white marble or quartz with grey veining for your island. How fun!
By mixing and matching your material, you are sure to make a fun looking kitchen you love being in! Plus, if you can’t decide on material, you can have the best of both worlds! Happy cooking!
