Design Trend 2018: Two Toned Kitchens

This year interiors are trending toward warmth with lots of natural wood and richer hues. This shift toward warmer tones and bold colors is influencing kitchen design. But if you love a white kitchen, like I do, you might not be ready to commit to bold color. One way to embrace the trend, while still maintaining a bright airy vibe, is to design a two toned kitchen. The two toned look has been popular over the last few years with lots of kitchens embracing black or gray. I think these colors are classic and will continue to trend but I think we will be seeing more pairings of white with organic woods or bolder pops of color.

Contrasting Cabinets

Picking a contrasting cabinet color for one wall section adds interest and creates the look of a built in hutch. For added character, choose wood for this section and pair it with statement hardware.

Two toned cabinets can make a kitchen feel airy without sacrificing storage. Use white for the upper cabinets, shelving, and range hood that will recede into the wall, with dark or colorful lower cabinets to ground the space.

Mix up your cabinet colors throughout the space to create balance. Even subtle differences in color add dimension to the kitchen.

A Statement Island

Keep your cabinets monochromatic, but create drama with a contrasting statement island. Go with black for a classic tuxedo kitchen, a fun pop of color, or use natural wood for a beautiful warm organic look.
