It's highly likely that you've noticed we've been going on and on about two-tone kitchen cabinetry in the last few months or so, being that it's a hot trend in the culinary world right now. So we thought, why not take it one step further and look beyond just cabinets? Genius, right? If you're after a bold statement, this is definitely the look for you. And if by some small chance you need more convincing, here are two-tone kitchen ideas that will have you reaching for, well, two paintbrushes.
1. Work with white.
2. Think about texture.
If you're after a softer two-tone kitchen color idea, think about adding texture to your look via the walls or by opting out of a backsplash. The ballet shoe pink Venetian plaster walls in this cook space by Wu Haus are the perfect match to the muted greige cabinets, proving that two-tone needn't be harsh.
3. Mix and match cabinetry.
4. Be bold.
5. Block colors.
6. Accessorize your countertops.
The open plan kitchen in this family home designed by Barcelona-based architects CaSa is a fresh take on Scandinavian style. Warm gray cabinets have been matched with a bright burst of coral and the hues have even been brought out in the terrazzo countertop and backsplash. Cue oohs and ahhs all around.
7. Tie in the flooring.
8. Break it up.
Okay, okay, so clearly we can't get enough of a pink and green color palette. But we realize this two-tone kitchen idea might be a little too much for some of you out there. Pro tip: Break up the color with a white backsplash like the one seen in this kitchenette by Dabito from Old Brand New. The separation will still allow you to get the look but on a less intense scale.
