A two tone kitchen would be something to consider when planning your next remodel. When contemplating whether your cabinets should be stained or painted and what color they should be, it is important to think of your options. Do you want them to be entirely one color or would you prefer a two tone approach?
Two Colors Are Better Than One
When you break up your kitchen into two colors, you get a great look. For instance, white painted upper cabinets and stained, darker lowers. Finding colors that work together is not very difficult and the contrast it may provide can be a thing of beauty. While we personally prefer a stain and paint combo, two tone paint kitchens are growing in popularity. It used to be that two paint colors in the same kitchen was too much paint. This idea seems to be on its’ way out though, as you can see in the posted pictures.
Another option you have is to change up the island. That way, you can leave all uppers and lowers one color. The island is always a popular choice to have finished in a secondary color. This is because it really helps to bring attention to the center of the kitchen. It is the area in which everyone gathers, in the kitchen so you want it to be striking. Even something like a pantry cabinet could help to break up a single color kitchen. While having a contrast in color is a great look, we would not recommend more than two different colors throughout. Remember, if there is a third color you just have to have, you can always reface a bathroom or laundry room in that color.
Consider A Two Tone Kitchen
If a remodel is on the horizon and you are trying to pick a color, a two tone kitchen is worth the thought. It will provide your space with a more visually appealing look and the possible contrast in colors will likely be a crowd pleaser.
