Choosing the right colour scheme for a new kitchen can be a challenge, particularly if you don’t have a specific design theme as you start the remodelling process. With so many options to choose from, you may struggle to decide on colour pairings and how each element of the room will fit together. So, here we’ll explore how you can match your countertops and flooring with your new kitchen cupboard doors.

Determine Your Colour Palette

The first step of matching all the elements of your new kitchen is to determine your colour palette. Whether you want to mix and match for a more eclectic look or stick to a more simple colour scheme, you need to make the decision about your colour palette early.

Check out samples of colours, particularly if you’re looking at your kitchen cupboard doors online. Since your cabinets will form the largest part of your overall design, you need to know the specific shades, so you can check which colours will complement them best. It is a good idea to choose two dominant colours that are fairly simple and a dominant colour that is bolder. For example, a classic combination is white cabinets, dark flooring, and red accessories.

Choose Your Countertops

Once you’ve decided on your kitchen cupboard doors, you’ll need to choose your countertops. Countertops are one of the most expensive elements of a new kitchen, but they are a focal point of the overall design. Countertops are available in a variety of materials, colours, and patterns, so you need a countertop that will complement your cupboards. Ideally, choose a countertop that features the other colours in your palette in the pattern. For example, if you’re installing grey cupboards, choose a countertop with some grey accents in the pattern. This will tie the look together while separating your cupboards, so the wall isn’t dominated by one colour.

Choose a Practical Floor

Some of the best flooring choices are neutral, as they will allow the cupboards and countertops to be showcased. Understated flooring can create a unified look without compromising the feeling of space. Think about the practicalities of your floor in addition to how it will look against the cabinets.

Finish off With Accents and Accessories

Once you have the three main elements of your cupboards, countertops, and flooring, you need to complete your look with accents and accessories. Fortunately, this last step is actually very easy. You can choose bold colours for small decorative accessories, small kitchen appliances, and even walls. You can brighten up the space and highlight items with metallic finishes and colours. For example, choosing chrome fixtures such as cupboard handles can coordinate with your appliances and highlight the rich tones of your new cupboards.

The key to coordinating all the elements of your new kitchen with your kitchen cupboard doors doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Just remember to take advantage of samples and compare your choice of cupboard finishes with any countertops, flooring or accessories before you make a final purchase decision and remember the Kitchen Door Co team is always ready to help, so you can realise your dream kitchen.
