Thinking about remodeling your kitchen? Having troubles with deciding on color/design? Look no further! Perhaps a two-toned kitchen is the answer you’ve been looking for!
Two-toned cabinet schemes are where your kitchen has two different colored cabinets! Whether it is just color, two wood types, stain differences, or entirely different materials! The nice thing about Two-toned kitchens is that there is no limit to a specific design taste. It can be traditional, modern, rustic (the list goes on) or a lovely mix in between.
Wood and White
It doesn’t matter if you prefer darker woods, lighter woods, or any color of stain, Wood on white is the safest choice for a two toned kitchen. Having white cabinets will keep the space looking clean and fresh while the wood will bring a sense of warmed into the kitchen.
Choosing different door styles and hardware can completely transform the kitchen into any decor taste.
Wood on Dark
Wood on dark can mean a lot of things. Light wood and dark wood, wood on any deep color, wood on black. The key to this design style is to keep the lighter wood textural to break up the two spaces. Choosing a wood with a unique pattern can your kitchen into a work of art.
Navy on Wood
Blues and green blue hues are great to pair with wood tones. Think back to art class in grade school. Do you remember the color wheel? Colors that are on opposite sides of the wheel are ‘complimentary colors’. The reason blues work so well with wood is exactly because of this. Wood naturally has an orange hue, which is the opposite of blue.
This being said, the nice thing about navy cabinets is that there is a sense of risk, without there actually being any. Your guests will be astonished that you chose blue cabinets, and will be surprised with how good it looks.
Wood on Wood
Pairing lighter and darker woods in a kitchen creates a very earthy, organic feel. The best way to pull this off is to make sure the two stains are extremely different, but with similar patterned wood so it doesn’t feel like they conflict. This is best paired with a neutral counter-top (generally white) to tie in the two seamlessly.
These are just a few suggestions. The possibilities are endless when it comes to styles. Contrasting door styles and hardware can even work when done correctly. Just keep an open mind and use your best judgement. Now go out there and build your dream kitchen!
