However, as you progress to lighter cabinet stains, the selection of wood is crucial. A strongly patterned wood like hickory is much different from the creamier maple in these lighter finishes. So, this is where wood selection comes into play. It is fair to note that even in the dark finishes, the characteristic streaks and burls of hickory will show through to some extent. Armstrong Cabinets has an excellent comparison of the different types of woods available for new kitchen cabinets.
If a bold paint color isn’t quite your thing, don’t worry. There are plenty of other ways to apply this look. One of them is to use two separate materials in your cabinet design. A wood finish is typically selected for part of the look, but you could, for example, mix it with laminate for a sleek, modern look or glass and aluminum to give the room an industrial feel.
Kitchens have always been at the forefront of interior design trends and for good reason. For most of us, the kitchen is one of the most used rooms in our homes, so there’s no reason not to invest in aesthetics. These days, two-toned kitchen cabinets are the look everyone seems to be clamoring over, and all it takes is one look to see why this trend is piquing homeowners’ interest.
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.
