When undertaking a kitchen remodel, it can be overwhelming to make a decision about the right color combination for your kitchen counters and cabinets. There are literally dozens of counter and cabinet combinations to choose from and the combo you land on can make or break your kitchen remodel. Many homeowners planning a kitchen construction project select neutral tones for their cabinets and counter-tops to avoid making a design faux pas or mixing colors that end up clashing. However, you don’t always have to play it safe when it comes to remodeling your kitchen. For instance, a unique kitchen remodel idea favored by many homeowners these days is to paint the upper and lower cabinets different colors for a dramatic contrast that adds interest to the room.
Ultimately, you want to find a kitchen counter and cabinet combination that works best for your design aesthetic, budget and lifestyle, and that you and your family can enjoy for years to come. To help make your decision a little easier, the following are some unique counter and cabinet combinations to consider when remodeling your kitchen.

Black Cabinets with White Quartz Counter-tops
Black is the new neutral in the design world and pairing sleek black kitchen cabinets with a clean, white quartz counter-top is a surefire way to give your kitchen a modern face-lift. If you aren’t prepared to paint your whole kitchen black, painting just the lower cabinets or the kitchen island will still make a bold statement.
White Cabinets with White Granite Counter-tops
White on white may sound too sterile or boring for some people’s taste, but there is nothing more timeless than a white kitchen. Outfitting your kitchen with a combination of white cabinets and white counter-tops can also dramatically brighten up the room and make it appear more spacious. If you’re worried about being bored by an all-white kitchen, you can easily accessorize with subtle pops of color when choosing the hardware and other finishes.
Yellow Cabinets with White Counter-tops
Even brighter and more welcoming than white is yellow. For a bold, friendly splash of color in your home, consider painting your kitchen cabinets a sunshiny yellow or a more muted mustard yellow. Finish them off with a crisp white marble counter-top, a white back-splash and open shelving for a fresh, airy feel.
Dark Gray/Blue Cabinets with Light Gray Counter-tops
Kitchen designs featuring bold, dark colors are having a moment right now. On-trend but still definitely timeless, dark gray or blue cabinets look great when combined with a light gray counter-top, either in quartz or granite.
Green Cabinets with Butcher Block Counter-tops
If a country or farmhouse kitchen is more up your alley, consider pairing green cabinets with a butcher block counter-top for a natural, rustic kitchen design. The great thing about choosing a versatile green for your cabinet color is that it looks great with a wide variety of counter-top styles and hardware finishes. For a more modern or elegant take on the traditional farmhouse kitchen, opt for brass hardware and a white quartz counter-top instead.
