What color white cabinets with silestone lagoon?

mandkirswillMay 7, 2013

Has anyone used silestone lagoon counters in their kitchen with white cabinets? If so, what color white paint did you use? Any photos would be appreciated, thanks!

I went with Silestone Lagoon quartz tops with white painted cabinets by Plain & Fancy. The color is called Cascade White. It's not a white white....and doesn't have too much yellow in it.

I also was worried about doing a white marble backsplash but found a perfect tile at The Tile Shop that has more swirlies with grey. Some of the other marble subway tiles I saw had too much yellow and gold in them (ie Florida Tile).

I am going with Ace Hardware Paint "Clark & Kensington" in either Harbor Lane #1044 or Union Pier #1034. The first is a pale robin's egg blue/aqua. The second is equally as muted but more of a colonial slate blue.

My kitchen colors will be more on the cool side (greys, blues, blacks).

Beautiful! Thats very similar to what I will be doing in my kitchen. Are you happy with the Silestone? I am trying to decide between the Lagoon and Cambria Torquay.

I am a KD and have been watching the quartz colors come and go throughout the years. We even have a Caesarstone Misty Carrera display top in our showroom that we've had since it first came out (early 2000s). Misty Carrera has always been my favorite. Torquay is very nice too.. But my favorite is NOW Silestone Lagoon. I like that it has less of a solid white background. Some people don't like the graininess of it (the small speckles). But I like that more than a solid white with grey streaks. I prefer it over any other white marble look-a-like out on the market today.

I first got it on my bathroom vanity earlier this year in Lagoon. Then loved it so much I just knew it would be perfect for my kitchen as well. The photos do not do the Lagoon countertops justice.

Here's closer up...but still....photos do not show the beauty.

Thanks Kompy! That really does look beautiful. What color did you paint your cabinets? Also what are you planning for backsplash? I would like some contrast - I can't decide whether I should do Lagoon on the island and some kind of grey counter on the perimeter with white backsplash OR paint the island grey. Curious what you are planning. Thanks!

Kompy, your kitchen is gorgeous. I didn't know the Lagoon also had larger patches of in veining it. Looks very good. What is the name of the tile you selected from the Tile Shop? I was looking to use Frosty Carrina with real marble subways. The Crossville Unicorn tile, which I think is China White marble, seems to go, but I haven't seen a larger piece of the FC in person to see how much veining there is.

Mandkirswill, I selected a factory finish from my cabinet manufacturer called Cascade White. It is not a Sherwin Williams finish. Sorry can't help you there.

After much deliberation, I have decided to stick with a white marble subway tile and then paint my walls. This way, I can change out my color scheme whenever I want. The Tile Shop has a gorgeous pale green marble subway tile that I almost went with....but then I'd be tied to green forever.

The tile I went with is called Meram Blanc in a 3x6....which is new and not on the shelves or their website yet. Click link below to see it on their website...or see my picture below of the store's sample board. It goes GREAT with fake quartz marble tops like Lagoon or Torquay!

You should go with what you love! But I am considering a grey island as the next phase and then putting on a CraftArt wood top on it. I love my light white perimeters...I think I would tire of a grey top unless it has the same type pattern as a marble.

Here is a link that might be useful: Meram Blanc

Can't wait to see your kitchen with the backsplash. :)

Mandkirswill : My cabinets will be White Icing by Schuler( with Silestone Lagoon). I hope it will look okay with the Lagoon when installed - fingers crossed.

Kompy, I'd love to see pics of your backsplash, too.
Since you are a KD, may I pick your designing brain ;-) and ask what *you* would do for a backsplash that will tie in a Saltillo-look-alike tile floor and a brick cooktop alcove?

My tile is in but painting of the trim and walls won't be done until August when I get back from vacation.

Here are a few more pictures of the Lagoon with my tile backsplash!

That's one beautiful backsplash, Kompy! Goes perfectly with Lagoon. You must post pics of your kitchen when everything is done - can't wait to see it!

Thanks everybody! More pics to come when painter finishes up.....probably not until August sometime. :-(

I told him to put me on backburner until I get back from vacation and financially recuperate some. ;-)
