Hello All we are in the process of completely redoing our whole kitchen and I had my counter top and cabinets all picked out. I thought I would show a couple of people just to see what they thought and one of them thinks the granite doesn't match the cabinets. Its a lite brown cabinet with a brown and white color granite. It now makes me wonder if I made the right choice. Is there such a thing of my granite not going with my cabinets?!?!?! Please help!
it is hard to judge that without seeing them but it sound ok it is a very big decison often with second thoughts. my wife had a lot of second thoughts but after they were in she is very happy. good luck.This message has been edited. Last edited by: thomashenry,
Never really heard of the countertops not going with the cabinets, -- but there's no doubt some colors will go better than others.
How are you picking out the countertops -- are you looking at a small sample and making the decision? I find it best to look at the full slabs to see what it will look like. Does your granite supplier offer that? The good shops do, in fact, they tell you to come by and pick out the slabs. At least here on the West Coast they do. I don't know where you're building

If its tonal it should go. Accent with some cream ceramics on your worktops to lighten it up. But i'd have gone with black or white myself... saying that i have wood cabinets with a green/brown flecked worktop at home which i think works (with slate flooring)
