Cabinets and countertops are the most essential surfaces in kitchen design. Not only must they function well, but to flaunt your flair, they should be aesthetically dazzling, too. If you’re renovating or designing a new space, you may be wondering about some of the best cabinet and quartz countertop pairings. We would like to share some inspiring ideas that can help transform kitchens and create spaces where you’ll love to cook, collaborate and spend time with friends and family.

Caesarstone Quartz Countertops: Inspiring Kitchen Design

While there are many options when it comes to the material for your countertops, you’ll find that quartz is the exceptional choice. At Caesarstone, we craft high-quality quartz countertops through exacting standards, producing a product that’s both beautiful and robust. Our nonporous surfaces resist staining better than other surfaces, and their superior durability means they won’t chip or crack easily. Available in a variety of color blends and surface designs and textures, Caesarstone delivers quartz countertops that inspire, allowing you to seamlessly or boldly pair with cabinetry and hardware to create a kitchen design narrative all your own. Get inspired by viewing our collections.

To get started on finding the right cabinets and countertops, let’s explore what you should and shouldn’t do.

  • Do mix and match neutral colors. Don’t think you have to be monochromatic in your choices. Using a variety of neutrals delivers a stunning visual, i.e., pairing black cabinets with white or grey countertops, or white cabinets with brown, black, or grey countertops.
  • Don’t go bold on bold. When you want to add a dash of daring, limit it to either the cabinets or the countertops. If you choose a bold countertop, pair it with neutral cabinetry to keep your surfaces from competing with each other.
  • Do keep in mind the home’s aesthetic. New cabinets and countertops should balance well with the rest of the home’s design. Opting for traditional cabinets and countertops for an ultra-modern home may foil and clash with your overall design objective.
  • Do educate yourself on each material’s unique benefits. Knowing the disadvantages and advantages of each material will help you determine which surfaces will best suit your functionality and durability needs.
  • Don’t choose the two separate from one another. Put samples together side by side in your home to get the best idea of how they’ll look in an actual installation.

Cabinet and Quartz Countertop Pairing Trends

There are many trends to inspire your cabinet and quartz countertop pairings. For a timeless look, remember to keep it simple and use complementary colors.

Natural Wood and White Countertops

Light natural wood is elegant yet charming. When paired with a white countertop, like Caesarstone’s 2141 Blizzard or 5141 Frosty Carrina, it opens up the space, making it look brighter and bigger.

White on White

White is a prominent trend in kitchens right now—the lighter, the brighter. By using a modern cabinet with sleek hardware and pairing it with marble-inspired quartz like our 5151 Empira White, you can add dimension and interest while keeping things clean and sophisticated.

Mixing Neutrals

Two-tone cabinets help define the space, and draw attention to it. For a striking look, try using darker cabinets on the bottom and white on top, then tie together nicely with a clean white countertop like our 6011 Intense White.

Off White and Grey

With a simple richness that looks great with almost any cabinetry, grey has become the go-to neutral for many designers. Consider pairing 4643 Flannel Grey or 4004 Raw Concrete with off-white cabinets and an eye-catching backsplash.
