Dark cabinets are a popular option that we see here at Marble.com, and today I’m going to share with you some of my favorite stones for them.
Ambrosia White, also known as Amba White, and Andromeda White, is a wonderful granite with an off white background that is filled with light grey and green veins along with some tiny burgundy spots. As we see in this quaint kitchen, it is the perfect countertop material to pair with dark cabinets. The white and grey tones of the Ambrosia White countertops create a beautiful contrast. A multi-colored backsplash of white, brown and grey is the perfect element to marry the diversity between light and dark colors in this kitchen.
Oscuro Mist Satin is a black granite from India with long, consistent white veins. This attractive granite makes a beautiful countertop for any kitchen, especially one with dark cabinets. Although combining black and brown may seem unnatural at first, as we see here, it is certainty an extraordinary design scheme when executed tastefully. The white kitchen island and the abundance of space are able to lighten up the area despite the prominent dark features. Additionally, the honed surface of the Oscuro Mist Satin countertops adds a unique textual dimension to this kitchen.
Giallo Ornamental, also known as Amarillo Ornamental, and Giallo Santo, is an attractive, speckled granite filled with natural brown and grey colors, which achieve a simple, yet refined style for kitchens with dark cabinets. Because of this granite’s predominantly white base, it allows the room to appear large and spacious, even though the area between the countertop and refrigerator is relatively snug. Additionally, stainless steel appliances also help to create the illusion of space, by reflecting lights from the windows and the attractive hanging fixtures.
Tan Brown is an Indian granite, also known as Chestnut Brown, and Copper Antique, which features a consistent speckled pattern of black, brown and dark red throughout the stone. In this recently renovated kitchen, the rich brown and red hues of Tan Brown have inspired dark cherry wooden cabinets and breakfast bar stools to match. The light backsplash serves as a balancing visual element that livens up the space and creates a stunning visual appearance that is complimentary to Tan Brown. Stainless steel appliances complete the look of this attractive kitchen.
Classic White Quartzite is a stunning white quartzite from Brazil with areas of grey highlights and occasional dark veining. Many designers and homebuilders use Classic White Quartzite as a more durable alternative for the luxurious classic marble look, which has caused this stone to recently become very popular. In this ying and yang styled kitchen we see how the elegance of Classic White claims the focal point when perched upon dark cabinets. Chandeliers and stainless steel appliances complete the clean and polished décor.
