Cabinet Color Advice for Kitchen With Dark Mahogany Floors and Blue Granite Countertops

We're creating our kitchen. The floors are a very dark wood, African Mahogany. We've chosen a blue granite counter top, close to Blue Persia.

The question is what would be a good color for the cabinets. One thought is having new cabinets painted cream, or a natural wood color. If the wood is on a darkish side will that work with the Blue Persia granite and the dark floor?


Thanks for the help.

White or a darkish color will go with your counter top, good luck.

I think a white, off-white or a white with a glaze that has a hint of gray in it. If I'm seeing this correctly, there is a little gray in the blue countertop. Might be nice to pull that out subtly.

Sounds very classy! If it were me, I would take a sample of the flooring in to the cabinet store, then either match the cupboards to that exact flooring color or go several shades lighter in the same hue.

You can go dark or light with that color of blue. Cream would also look nice... If your kitchen is large, go with darker cabinets, if it's fairly Small, go with the Cream color you mentioned or another light color to make it feel larger!

Also, a dark Blue cabinet would look nice, but wouldn't be great for re-sale. Stay with mainly neutral colors for good re-sale value!

Stay with the colors in the counter top; you've got several to choose from. Don't know what color your walls are, but if they are white, then paint the cabinets darker than the walls to bring it together; otherwise paint the cabinets the palest shade in the granite.

I lived in Africa once, and seeing that lovely blue with hints of green in it reminded me of the lovely days in the Highlands of Kenya. How about a soft green taken from the dark streaks in the granite; a pastel/light version.

It would be like the blue skies and green of Africa, with the dark woods you find in most houses there.
