  • You can’t go wrong with granite countertops.

Yes, there are a million materials out there but granite is hard to beat and when I say you can’t go wrong, you literally can’t go wrong with whatever color you go with. Whether you go with grays, browns or even black, they all can pair nicely with this style of maple cabinets. If you happen to have black appliances, dark countertops will tie very well with them whereas stainless or white appliances tend to work better with the gray and brown countertops.

  • Darker flooring with natural maple kitchen cabinets.

Kitchen cabinets are the elephants in the kitchen; in fact, the biggest creature in the kitchen. Maintaining them is not easy. So you can pick colors that require less maintenance and gives a fresh feeling. My top pick is medium to darker wood flooring or tile. This contrast with the lighter maple cabinets is breathtaking. As we said before, the versatility is great with these cabinets so if you want to continue brightening up the kitchen, you can certainly go with a lighter flooring as well and still come out on top with that timeless and modern look.

  • Choose a backsplash that ties your countertops to your maple cabinets.

The easiest way to tie in your cabinets and countertops is through your backsplash. Ultimately you can also use the countertops to tie in your cabinets and backsplash. If you go with the darker countertops, you can go with a lighter backsplash but make sure it includes at least a hint of the countertops main color for that even flow. Then there are the ever so classic white porcelain subway tiles that just about work in any kitchen setup.
