Designing with Cherry Cabinets

Cherry is incredibly rich, making it a timeless favorite for homeowners who want to make a statement in any room. If you’re remodeling your home with cherry cabinets, you need to keep a few things in mind as you fill in the rest of the space with new appliances and new flooring. Here are some tips for designing with cherry to help you make a bold, beautiful statement with your new cabinets.


Keep it Simple
When it comes to the cabinet doors themselves, choose a simple door style to allow the beautiful grains and textures to shine through. Busy details like elaborate carvings or moldings will distract from the natural beauty of the cherry. If you are working with a small space, consider glass-front cherry wood cabinets to lighten up the cabinetry and help make a room appear larger.

Brighten Your Backsplash
While you don’t want to distract attention away from your beautiful cherry cabinets, a glass backsplash is a great way to add some contrasting lightness to the room by offsetting the dark tones of cherry wood. Metallic tiles crafted of copper or stainless steel can give a more modern, industrial look to offset the rich, natural beauty of cherry cabinets.

Add Contrast with Light Flooring
While we’re on the subject of contrasts, look to hardwood flooring to give your cherry cabinets that extra “pop.” Light-colored wood flooring draws the eye upward towards the dark cherry wood cabinets, while also making the room appear larger.
