When looking to decorate your kitchen in a nautical theme, one of the best ways to go with counters is dark wood cabinets and marble tops. The dark cabinets give a representation of the deck of a ship. However, if you are not interested in having your cabinets made of a dark color, white is also an option for both the counter top and the cabinet. Add decals of ships, lighthouses, ships or seashells to the cabinets to add charm and tie the room together.
