Some of the most frequently asked questions Kitchen Magic designers get are about pairing cabinet and countertop colors. When it comes to kitchen style, it truly is all about personal preference, but the endless color options can quickly become confusing, leaving the homeowner unable to decide upon the perfect cabinet and countertop combination. But have no fear—we’re here to help you make sense of this design dilemma in today’s blog posting.
You may have already read our blog, titled, “What Countertop Color Looks Best with Cherry Cabinets?” that picks the most popular countertop color choices for the very popular cherry-colored wood cabinets. Today’s blog will follow suit, by pairing one of our most popular maintenance-free cabinet door colors with the countertop colors that look best with Cherry Pear cabinets.
Cherry Pear maintenance-free cabinet doors are a hit among homeowners because they are both durable and versatile. Maintenance-free doors can be a more cost effective choice over traditional wooden doors, and are often a great candidate for cabinet refacing, making them the premier choice for the homeowner on a budget.
Available in fourteen different styles and a variety of glazes, Cherry Pear can be easily customized for all types of kitchen styles.
Although Cherry Pear cabinets are maintenance-free, the color imitates the natural grain in wood cabinets, giving this color an earthy feel. Somewhere between Oak and Maple colors, Cherry Pear colored cabinets are neutral and warm, and are the perfect medium between the deep reds of Classic Cherry and the subdued yellows in Antique White cabinets.
When deciding which countertop colors to pair with your cabinets, it’s important to take both the cabinet and countertop shade into consideration. Color shades can be either warm or cool, and typically, designers advise that you pair warm cabinets with warm countertops, and cool cabinets with cool countertops.
While this is the rule, Cherry Pear cabinets can be the exception. Although they fit within the warm shades, Cherry Pear is a true neutral color, and looks great with both warm and cool countertop colors.
This kitchen pairs Cherry Pear cabinets with Zodiaq Quartz countertops in Storm Gray. Gray is a very popular color among designers and homeowners today. The cool, uniform color of this countertop is the perfect match for the warm and neutral Cherry Pear cabinets, for a kitchen that’s trendy, but won’t go out of style.
Our second Cherry Pear kitchen pairs the Cherry Pear cabinets with Cambria Quartz countertops in Bradford. While Bradford has a cool base shade, the color itself features many different colors in its variants, both cool and warm. The combination of an exciting, cool countertop and the light, neutral Cherry Pear cabinets make this small kitchen appear larger.
Remember that there is no right choice when picking the best countertop color to pair with your cabinets. It all depends upon what you like and what is the best fit for your kitchen’s functionality.
