San Diego Home Design Trend: Two-Toned Cabinets

When designing a San Diego home, there are several decisions to be made. Sometimes the hardest part about designing your kitchen isn’t finding the look you want, but is instead choosing just one. So what is the solution? Two-toned cabinets.

Two-toned kitchen cabinets have become increasingly popular in recent years. They let the homeowner have two different style directions, which can add color diversity to the kitchen while giving it a unique personality.

As the size of the average kitchen increases, so does the kitchen color palette. In some designs, a kitchen island will be painted or stained a different color than the rest of the kitchen. This option works well for traditional designs lacking a lot of color or visual diversity. In other designs, a contrasting color will be placed on the crown molding or in accent areas. The goal is to add interest to the color palette of the kitchen and can help to flaunt the strengths of your kitchen.

The two-toned look allows you to experiment with more than one color and create something unique and inspired. Different shades of the same color work well to compliment one another. Just be sure that the darker color is on the bottom, like an anchor. There are several different options for two-toned cabinets such as: wood on white, neutral on neutral, color on neutral, and wood on wood.
