Kitchen remodels are costly – averaging around $30,000 nationwide – so many folks usually air on the side of caution and opt for something traditional. I have to admit, I did this in The Bungalow and I still adore our all white cabinets. However one trend in kitchen design that seems to be here to stay – therefore no longer qualifying it as a “trend” – is contrasting cabinets. Now, if you were to go with a very daring color, say bright green perhaps, it may put a time stamp on the design. However, choosing two traditional shades is a much safer route. It’s also very kid-friendly if you select a darker shade on the bottom (black, grey, navy or a dark wood stain) which can hide little fingerprints from sight, and white on the top keeping the room bright and airy.
What are your thoughts on contrasting cabinets?
