Now that the world is coming slowly out of the pandemic lockdown, a new trend in home décor is emerging.  White cabinets!  So many families are tired of being in the dark, literally, and figuratively.  We want our homes to be bright, inviting, and open.  White cabinets in kitchens and bathrooms and all white built-in cabinetry are all the rage.  Even the whitewash rustic look is a big hit.  So, we find many of our customers asking what floor goes with white cabinets?

How High Contrast Floors go with White Cabinets

So much of the answer to this question will remain in “the eye of the beholder”.  Some people enjoy a high contrast look.  A beautiful contrast would be a dark, warm tone to balance the cool of white.  If in a kitchen or high traffic area, we have beautiful choices in water-resistant and scratch resistant laminates or luxury vinyl planks and tiles.  When you set up your appointment, ask to see samples like this of Mohawk Revelance in the color Tea Time.

Another high contrast option would be to have dark cabinets on the lower half, white cabinets on the upper half to make the room feel more spacious.  The flooring to best compliment this would be a lighter, high contrast hard surface to give a modern look.  If you want a waterproof and easy to clean option (because it’s seamless) ask your flooring company for Mohawk’s Versatech, like this 595T in Cypress Grey.

Grey Floors Compliment White Cabinets

The most popular color for flooring is still grey.  Many interior designers have switched to grey from the old neutral beiges that were popular in the last few decades.  See the above image with grey hard surface flooring.  You could achieve the look below with something less expensive than marble.  Ask to see a grey marble style sheet vinyl.

All Light Floor with White Cabinets

This all-light appearance has been popular in places like Florida and on the East and West coasts for years.  The Midwest is looking to bring some of these light and cheery influences to their homes.  This eating nook area has a beautiful light, rustic feeling.  You could have this same look with Mohawks Vintage Elements Hardwood in Winter Oak.  A color that’s fittingly named for the Midwest!

Or you could choose a light-colored carpet to accent your white cabinets or furniture.  This cozy room could be accomplished with a carpet by Shaw called Subtle Aura and you could choose a light tone like Candlelight to go with the décor.
