What color looks good with cedar?

You may be wondering what color looks good with cedar.

While this is largely subjective, there are tones that complement the wood quite nicely.

Our Favorite Colors To Pair With Cedar Wood

We’ve selected some of our favorite colors to pair with cedar for a natural, stylish look.

Soft shades of grey, beige and green work really well with cedar.

See the image below for a visual reference of how the various color palettes compare.

The cool tones contrast the warm hue of the wood in a way that creates an inviting atmosphere.

So you can use this reference if you're a woodworker, cabinetmaker, or even an interior designer.

Understanding how to blend colors properly creates an heir of elegance that will not go missed and is sure to impress any guest.

Pair these colors with one of our famous cedar boards and you're in for a real treat.

Soft greens such as sage make a calming effect while shades like grey and taupe add an element of sophistication.

In this example we've set our Cedar Board in between sage and taupe, creating a mood board for inspiration.


Before you decide to pair different colors with cedar, make sure they pass the visual aid test.

Put a singular tone next to the wood and see how it makes you feel, then try adding another color and see how that makes you feel.

Colors evoke emotion, so you want to be sure you're picking a vibe that's suitable with your energy before you decorate your house, furniture, or other items with random colors.

We hope this guide has helped, and if you're in the market for some sophisticated cedar kitchen products check out our shop.
