Of course, you can choose any color you want for your cabinetry, but whether it clashes or makes a design statement depends on the color. Dark floors, whether tile, vinyl, laminate or hardwood, provide a strong base in a room. To avoid over-saturating the area with dark colors -- unless that''s compass orientation also affects the movement of light in the room. Northern-windowed rooms receive cool light, while southern rooms receive ample, warm light throughout most of the day. Eastern-facing rooms get bright morning light, while western rooms receive the fading light of day, all of which affect the colors used in the room.

Dark-Colored Floors

Dark floors have more visual weight to them, which makes them a good choice for color-grounding the floor. If the dark tones are cool, the floor tends to recede, but if the dark color has warmth to it, the color advances into the space. Dark earth tones on the floor allow you to choose a variety of colors for your cabinets in lighter shades.

When you add white to cabinets, you can also add a light neutral to your countertops.

Break up the color scheme with accessories that provide spots of bright colors.

Dark Cabinets and Floor

Make a dramatic statement by adding dark cabinets in a shade that matches the flooring. But break up the drama by adding white countertops and walls. Solid-surface granite countertops with gray veins tie the colors together by providing contrast and a mix of dark in light in the gray veins. The idea is to avoid making cabinets, floor, countertops and walls the same color unless you plan a thoroughly modern kitchen with a lot of stainless steel or shiny metal accoutrements.
