1. Two-Toned Cabinetry
“Two-toned cabinetry keeps a kitchen from looking too flat and sterile. The kitchen is the center of the home, so playing with various colors and textures creates visual impact and brings more warmth and life to the space. Using two-tone cabinetry can work just as well in a traditional/transitional kitchen as it does in a more contemporary/modern space. I love using two different paint colors as well as using one paint color and a more natural-looking wood together. In this kitchen, we used a pale gray and navy blue: Harbor Gray and Hale Navy with adding some bleached sycamore for warmth and depth.
