Timber continues to be a popular and traditional choice for kitchen cabinets as it comes in an array of finishes and styles. Timber kitchen cabinets offer a lot of design options for your kitchen but because they come in so many intense colour tones it can be hard to style your kitchen around them. While colour schemes such as grey, white and beige are an obvious choice, here are some other unique colour and material ideas to complement your timber kitchen cabinets and make them stand out in your kitchen.

Marble Bench Tops
If you have dark stained timber kitchen cabinets in your kitchen, white marble bench tops will complement this style. Pair this with crisp white walls and timber floors a few shades lighter than the cabinetry to lighten up the dark toned kitchen cabinets.

Blue Tones
A soft pale blue or rich blue with subtle grey undertones on the walls of your kitchen will work well with a great set of timber kitchen cabinets. Keep your blue colour palette from sky blue to greyish blue for medium toned kitchen cabinets and choose a rich blue for dark timber cabinets.

Charcoal Walls
Dark charcoal walls will add a striking feature to your kitchen. The darker colour scheme won’t be too harsh as the timber kitchen cabinets paired with great lighting will warm up your kitchen.

Lime Splashback
Bring a fresh feel to your cooking space by adding a tropical lime splashback for a pop of colour. Ensure to sample the colour to make sure the right shade matches with the tone of your timber kitchen cabinets. Pair the lime colour with neutral walls and bench tops so there is no colour clashes.

White Ceramic Tiled Walls
White ceramic tiling, white marble bench tops and stainless steel appliances will bring a sense of sophistication to your kitchen. The natural timber of the kitchen cabinets will bring a warm contrast to the crisp white background.

Turquoise and Teal Shades
Green paint colours can be tricky to match with timber kitchen cabinets however the result brings a bright colour and creates a cheerful kitchen. Experiment with lively colours and add a unique turquoise tone to complement your timber kitchen cabinets.

Industrial Grey
Go for a blend of rustic and industrial colour schemes for a distinct style. Rich walnut kitchen cabinets will suit a mixture of industrial grey colours and stainless steel appliances.

Whether you are building a new kitchen in a new home or renovating an existing one, follow these ideas when styling with timber kitchen cabinets.
