Do dark counter tops make a room dark?

15 years ago

You wise people have advised me that with excellent lighting, a northside kitchen with dark wood ceilings can be made light with excellent lighting. I get that. Just Double checking as I am thinking of going with Silestone Green River (leather/matte) or Cambria Kensington (more shine)to meld with my creamy yellow cabinets. Getting cold feet that perimeter and island in this dark color will be too dark. Any words of wisdom? A lighting pro alerted me that all the planned under cabinet lights will reflect onto the dark counters...

Any guidance on this?
