Choosing two styles, colours or materials for kitchen cabinets is a great way to create both a distinct style and also the impression of separate work spaces. Not only does mixing and matching kitchen cabinets mean you have double the opportunity to make a statement in your space, but also that you could potentially choose a bold material or colour to create a feature area, and to allow certain areas of your kitchen to really shine. Today we’re sharing 3 kitchens which use two-tone cabinets to incredible results- one modern, one transitional & one traditional.
Above, this modern masterpiece uses gorgeous neutral wood for the island work & bar area, and sleek white cabinets for the food prep & stovetop area. Because of the dramatic monochrome colour palette, the use of wood helps to warm up the space and create unexpected texture!
Above, the style of cabinet in this beautiful kitchen is consistent throughout, but the perimeter’s soft white contrasts boldly with the island’s sharp black. By using a shaker style cabinet throughout, this kitchen feels cohesive & intentional.
Lastly, this traditional kitchen showcases beautiful woodworking on both the upper cabinets & island. Again, the soft neutral greige of the perimeter contrasts with the deep inky black of the island to create a feeling of separation between work top & socializing areas.
