Get the Look: Two-toned Kitchen Cabinetry
One of the most exciting elements of updating your kitchen is planning out its style; browsing Pinterest or design sites for inspiration, and breathing new life into a tired space.
But sometimes it can be difficult to narrow down all of these enticing options and decide on just one to implement into your design. It doesn’t have to be this way, however – two-toned cabinetry is a growing trend that lets you have the best of both worlds. Here’s how to make it work.
Create a contrast
To create a feeling of space in a smaller kitchen, incorporate contrasting colours between your upper and lower cabinetry. Using a light palette on top lessens the harsh division between wall and cabinet, and keeps the weight in the bottom half of the space.
This combination gives you the neutrality and airiness of a white kitchen, while still letting you play around with darker tones to pull the look together.
While wooden kitchens may have been all the rage a few years ago, it’s a strong look that can date quickly if not done well. When you pair wood with a more traditional finish, you still get the impact while ensuring your kitchen will look great for years to come.
Experiment with colour
If you don’t want to relegate colour to the splashback, consider using cabinetry to lend a pop of personality to your kitchen. Whether it be pastel hues or bright jewel tones, balance out your vibrant palette with a neutral tone. The end result? A kitchen that will brighten up your day every time you see it.
