Matching Kitchen Flooring with cabinets and Countertops
When deciding on the right flooring for your kitchen, it is important to take into account the kitchen color scheme and materials you want to use throughout the rest of the room. If you choose simple or neutral cabinet colors, a patterned flooring like herringbone style may liven the kitchen up. Similarly, if you have bright and bold cabinet colors, a more calming, neutral floor may be a better choice. The flooring, cabinets and countertops are the foundations of a cohesive kitchen design. As stated before, it’s ideal to keep your overall design simple so you can easily change and add accents if you choose.
There are pros and cons to matching your floor color with your countertop. On one hand, matching your flooring with your countertops maintains continuity, such as a marble countertop and marble flooring. On the other hand, if all your countertops and floors are white, it can create a sterile feel, lacking character and warmth.
