What Colors Go Best With Black Countertops?
Ideally, you want everything else in the kitchen to be light. Whether the space is small or large, keeping everything else light offers a nice contrast. Cabinets in shades of white, cream, and light gray pair beautifully with black countertops. For the floor, you can either match the cabinets or the counters. A lighter floor makes the space feel larger, and that is best for a small kitchen. A darker floor gives the space a luxurious flair. If you’re afraid of the space looking too drab, add some color! Black is neutral and pairs well with anything. You can go totally bold with a color on the wall or add color with small accents or linens.
