What Laminate Flooring Color Do I Use With Light Cabinets?

When matching your flooring to your cabinets there might be a few questions that need answered. For example, what laminate flooring color do I use with light cabinets? To achieve a completed and well balanced room your cabinets and flooring – two permanent items within your room – should complement each other to give a well finished look.

When choosing your laminate flooring color to match your cabinets there a few tips that you might want to abide by:

1. Do Not Color Match

  • If it’s not perfect, it will clash – some white colors can actually give off a yellow, or magenta tint, so be careful!
  • Too much of the same color can appear overwhelming
  • You will not have color contrast and your room can appear boring

2. Opt for Darker Colored Laminate

  • Pairing light cabinets with dark flooring creates contrast, making the space visually appealing
  • The color contrast can create a sense of warmth and completeness in a space.
  • Having darker flooring hides the dirt a little bit better than light colored flooring

3.  Underlying Tones

  • If your cabinets have a natural wood appearance, try matching your laminate to one of those tones
  • If your cabinets are a simple light color, opt for the darker laminate

4. Use Replaceable Items

  • Items such as furniture and wall paint can be switched out and updated so don’t panic if it doesn’t match
  • Form a color scheme and use that pallet to help with picking your laminate
  • Think of the room as a whole canvas rather than each project separately
