What Granite Countertop Color Looks Best with Cherry Cabinets

By: Sara on May 19, 2014

Cherry colored kitchen cabinets have been popular for years now, and through reading this post, it will be easy for you to find out why. Cherry cabinet doors are so versatile, not only in the many color options, but depending on the countertop color you pair your cherry cabinets with, you could completely transform the look and feel of your kitchen. Because granite is the must-have countertop material available on the market today, we’re going to give you some expert style advice to help you perfectly pair your cherry cabinets with granite countertops.

Lighter Cherries

Lighter colored cherry cabinet doors tend to look best when paired with darker colored granite countertops. But this is not a strict rule, and really all depends on your personal taste.

If you have or want cherry cabinets on the lighter end of the spectrum, like Cherry Pear maintenance free cabinet doors or Natural on Cherry Wood wood cabinet doors, then it’s always nice to pair with a darker granite countertop color like Black Pearl or Dakota Mahogany. Also, if you’re stuck as to which color looks best, know that you can’t go wrong with a neutral color like Tropical Brown or Autumn Wheat.

Medium and Classic Cherries

For true cherry colored cabinet doors and medium colored cherry versions, it’s best to stay within the darker end of the neutral color palate. Cabinet door colors like maintenance free Classic Cherry and wood Harvest Gold on Cherry with a Caramel Glaze pair perfectly with brown and beige granite countertops. Think Tropical Brown, which has rich brown and light gray variants, and Baltic Brown, which offers lots of movement with dark cream colored granite.
