Two-toned kitchen cabinets are an exciting new style in kitchen design. This style is gaining popularity because is suits so many kitchen styles from modern contemporary to classic, the options are endless. Here are our favourite ways to incorporate the two-toned look into your next kitchen.
The two-toned kitchen is a design where two different tones or materials are used on the cabinetry throughout the kitchen. You can use a complementary colour scheme with contrasting colours or an analogous colour scheme with similar colours and can be incorporated into any style of kitchen. The two-toned design is suited to people who want a timeless kitchen with a bit of personality.
One way to implement the two-tone style is to select your second cabinet colour as a contrast to your first. This makes for a more dramatic effect and is usually used in modern kitchens. Contrasting colours are best used in larger kitchens where there is more room for visual activity. An example of this is a kitchen where all of the base cabinets are a grey and all of the top cabinets are a deep red.
Another way to use two-tones in your kitchen is to select an analogous colour scheme, or colours that are close together on the colour wheel. This will create a harmonious tone throughout the kitchen. This usually works best in small kitchens, and looks great in both modern and classic kitchen designs.
You could also use two different types of materials. For example, you could use a wood grain for some of the cabinets and a plain colour for the others. This look can be created within most budgets. For a more cost effective option, use laminate. It can help you cut costs without sacrificing the design.
The most common way to create the two-toned look in the kitchen is to have the top cabinets one colour or material and the bottom ones another. There are many other ways to do this though, you could just have the island as a different colour, or one side of the kitchen a different colour like a feature wall.
