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.
One trend in kitchen design is to mix wood finishes or colors, using contrast to draw special attention to different zones in the kitchen. Here the primary cabinetry that outlines the workspace and houses appliances and storage establishes the kitchen¿s Tuscan roots in a buttery hue aged with a distressed glaze finish. Then, the central workstation island establishes its place in richly saturated walnut brown. Deep red, washed with a buttery accent, accentuates the Tuscan influence by adding decorative touches to the kitchen, such as the grand mantelpiece-type architecture framing the cooking station.
Cabinets accented with classic molding and furniture-style details lend timeless traditional style to this elegant kitchen. A dark glaze layered over the creamy white perimeter cabinets conveys a sense of formality by enhancing the cabinetry fine fluting, shapely legs, and intricate crown molding. A black-matte finish on the generous island compliments the scene with striking contrast. To prevent today is traditional style from feeling stodgy and unlivable, add a thoughtful dose of casual embellishments, such as the beaded-board panels and wire-mesh door fronts that hint towards English country ambiance in this kitchen.
