Two-toned kitchens were popular somewhere a long time ago and are now making a big comeback. This is a stylish way to incorporate colors you like into your kitchen decor. Also, the upper cabinets are light and the lower ones are dark, giving your space an ethereal and bright look. There are many different styles and color combinations to choose from. Let’s look at the best ideas you can try.
Such kitchens are designed to play with colors and contrasts. So don’t hesitate to choose the colors you like! Red and white, navy and white, emerald and gold, gray and white, black and white – there are thousands of combinations to try! I would say the most popular combination is white and some shade of gray – if gray is dark you get a cool contrast, if gray is light – you get an ethereal space. Furnish your kitchen the way you want it. If it’s a modern space, don’t use knobs or handles and keep the cabinets sleek. If it’s a mid-century modern space, a cool geometric backsplash is your thing and of course metallic details go with any style and color – what a great idea for adding chic to the kitchen!
Two-tone cabinets with wood
Another trendy idea is two-tone kitchens with wooden cabinets – the top or bottom is made of wood or plywood and the second row is colored. You can go for dark stained or light wood or rich wood tones – it’s up to you, and any sleek cabinetry of any color will contrast the wood. Black, white, navy, emerald, orange, mint or any other color is welcome. It depends on the look you want and the style you choose. For modern spaces, more vibrant contrasts are better: black and light wood, wood and white, mint and dark stained wood, and so on. For vintage rooms, prefer pastel and white tones, as well as rich wood tones.
