The latest design trend right now is two toned kitchen cabinets. This trend allows you to play with fun pops of color, create visual interest and make a kitchen look high end on an affordable budget!
Let's dive into the trend and explore everything you need to know about it!
"Two-tone" kitchen cabinets refers to any kitchen space that combines two different colors of kitchen cabinets. You could do different top and bottom cabinets or change the color of your kitchen island.
Homeowners have also done different wood stains, or different complementary finishes-the possibilities are endless!
Why should you consider doing two-tone kitchen cabinets?
It improves the overall aesthetic appeal of the kitchen. It gives the entire space an elevated aesthetic that screams 'custom' rather than 'builder grade'.
Increases resale value. This is a trend that's here to stay. Having a trendy kitchen attracts potential buyers who love the look but don't want to put in the work or time to get it.
Makes the space feel larger. If you use darker colors at the bottom and lighter colors at the top, an illusion of a larger kitchen appears, as the light kitchen cabinets will blend in more.
How to get the two-toned look
Choose the focal point. Do you want to focus on the lower cabinets or the kitchen island as the pop out feature in the kitchen? Or do you want to accent a certain area - like the bar or fridge section?
Choosing colors. Ah, the fun part! Be sure to get lots of inspiration. Are you looking for a bold pop of color? Or possibly a subtle, more natural effect?
Go dark on the bottom. Keep your upper cabinets light and your lower cabinets dark. This helps your space feel more open, light and spacious.
Don't forget to unify! When you choose two different cabinet colors, make sure you have a unifying element to tie the two together with matching hardware and fixtures. It will give your space a feeling of continuity and style.
