If you, too, have fallen in love with the two-toned look, you’re in luck. In this post, we’ll explore some of the most common ways people are getting in on this trend. Read them over and decide which one works best for you. At the end of the day, whichever one you choose is guaranteed to bring plenty of visual interest to your home.
Shaker-style cabinetry features flat drawer fronts and cabinet doors with flat-face frames surrounding a flat recessed panel. An incised line of beading may surround the drawers and doors, as in this kitchen, as a subtle outline for emphasis. Here leaded-glass doors original to the 1882 house are installed in the upper cabinets to lighten the effect of so much cabinetry. Wide beaded-board backsplashes and simple white knobs respect the vintage character of the house, and classic Victorian green paint preserves the original aesthetic.
Whites, beiges and light earth tones work great in most kitchens and with almost any wall color or wallpaper, making them the top choice for those looking to repaint their kitchen cabinets. To achieve this look, paint your upper cabinets a different color than your lower cabinets. While there are millions of color combinations, some of the more popular include black on bottom and white on top, or bold colors on bottom and neutral on top. You could also contrast colors between wall cabinets and island cabinets.
Organize your things according to type. Gather plates in 1 place, pans and pots in another. Ensure that your kitchen items are grouped together based on type. Keeping the big and small plates in precisely the exact same location helps family members locate things when mom is not around. The same is true for bowls. Try to set your dishes closer to the dishwasher for convenience when putting away things. Often pots and pans can go in bottom cupboards. Glasses should go near the sink so it's easy to have a drink of water. Place cups closer to the coffee pot.
Organizing is easier when you begin with a clean slate. Remove everything from the cabinets. Lay it all out on your kitchen table. Do not get overwhelmed with all the voluminous stack of gear and equipment you will need after draining your cabinets. Most of us have a great deal more of this stuff than we realize. Perform the upcoming actions and each of those items will disappear in a couple of minutes.
