When it comes to current design trends the masses have fallen in love with two-tone kitchens. Here are 3 reasons why you will fall in love too!
1. Two-Tone Kitchens Create A Focal Point
In the world of art, the definition of “focal point” is an area of emphasis that demands the most attention to which the viewer’s eye is drawn, pulling it into the painting.
Your dream kitchen is a piece of art and in a two-tone kitchen, you have the opportunity to direct the visual flow of the kitchen to make for a stunning first impression.
Check out some examples of how we used the island as the focal point.
2. Mix And Match Colours And Textures
Take your pick. Are you inspired by colours or textures? Do you dream of installing unique material (rustic wood, frosted glass cabinet doors, etc.) as your personal touch? Or do you love sifting through colourful kitchens on Pinterest?
The reality is, two-tone kitchens are not exclusive to traditional or modern design. You have the freedom of integrating a two-tone flavour into many design variations. Finally, don’t be scared off at the thought of vibrant colours, you can also mix and match colour tones.
3. Creative Two-Tone Placement
We have already seen what it looks like to feature the focal point as the island but many have also used two-tone design contrasting the upper and lower cabinets.
Practically speaking, this could be as simple as using a dark wood on the lower cabinets and white paint on the top cabinets. Some have suggested that this design hack can give the illusion of a bigger space as the eye is drawn upward to the lighter cabinets, while in the presence of an impressionable lower cabinet contrast.
