18 Gorgeous Dark Cherry Cabinets Ideas
If you wish to amplify the warm and welcoming red tones of your existing dark cherry cabinets, go for a lighter shade for the walls. Neutral colors, including browns, grays and greens, work very well with many shades, and make a warm, neutral background for dark cherry cabinets. This contrast between the dark cherry stain and the lighter wall color can be used to create drama. Use two or three deep shade colors that compliment your cabinets. You can also use one or two very pale colors to frame your dark cherry cabinets.
For a more elegant look, but still with warm tones, match your dark cherry cabinets with white walls. Lightly paint the walls in a neutral tone, or use white wallpaper to set the tone. Then install dark cherry veneers on the front of your cabinets, matching the cabinet pulls with the cabinet doors, and border them with coordinating white paint strips. You can choose either a light or dark cherry finish to complement your white walls, or a mixture of both. White paint strips accent your white walls, as well as your dark cherry cabinets and your countertops.
Alternatively, for a slightly more casual look, try using browns and grays against white, or even a mocha-colored brown and cream design. These contrast well with any color, and help to bring out the natural beauty of your dark cherry cabinets. Another option would be to use tan and off-white shaded versions of these cabinets. Tan and off-white shades contrast beautifully with many surfaces, and give a warm feeling space.
