White Cabinets Dark Counters Ideas

If you are reading this article, it means that the contrast works. Black words on a white sheet, whether paper or smartphone, don’t change much. Contrast helps our eyes to notice and stand out. Home design is no exception. The contrast works. In this article, I’ll show some inspirational examples of white kitchens with a black countertop.


Can I put a black countertop in a kitchen with white cabinets?

I can’t say you have to because every kitchen has its own story, but I can certainly tell you you can. Combining a black countertop with a kitchen with white cabinets is a winning combination.

White is the primary color for the kitchen. Still, generally, you avoid using a white or light color for the other elements to avoid a style that is too flat and sterile. At the same time, a dark or black countertop highlights the kitchen. Itself, perhaps joining with the color of other details and ornaments present.

What material should I choose for my black kitchen counter?

Assuming that your kitchen is made of wood or veneer, you can use a material such as black marble, onyx, quartzite, or plastic laminates for your black countertop.
