You’ve probably seen two-tone kitchen cabinets all over Instagram and Pinterest as you research for your kitchen remodel. And for good reason!
Two tone cabinets in kitchen can be a perfect way to add a contemporary touch to your kitchen design and help a small space feel much larger. Whether you choose two tone kitchen cabinets and island or two pops of color interspersed throughout the kitchen, a two tone kitchen will always make a statement.
There are many ways to create dual color kitchens, but there are definitely some things you’ll want to keep in mind to make sure you achieve the look you’re after.
- Think about the rest of your home. What colors will coordinate with the rest of your decor? Try and stick with a theme, especially in an open plan living space.
- Will it age well? Unless you plan on redoing your kitchen every few years, it’s important to color finishes that aren’t too trendy and will be able to be used for a long time to come.
- Do the colors complement each other? The colors you pick should match and work well together. Generally you’ll want one neutral or light color (or wood) and one darker or bright color.
- Darker color on the bottom. The darker of the cabinet choices should be on the bottom to keep the look balanced.
Here are some two-tone kitchen cabinet trends!
Gray & White Kitchen Cabinets
White is always a classic kitchen choice, and gray is perfect complement. The best part about gray cabinets is all the shades and choices you have. And honestly, when it comes to gray cabinets, you can’t go wrong!
Navy & Wood Two Tone Cabinets in Kitchen
For a warm and rustic look, we love navy blue kitchen cabinets with wood details. You can accent with a wood stove hood, wood cabinets on the bottom or a wood kitchen island. Any type of wood will do, but we especially love the look of maple, walnut or a lighter wood like hickory. This look is complemented best by a white marble-like countertop.
Green & White Two-Tone Kitchen Cabinets
Emerald green cabinets are a bold and luxe, pair them with white and you get a lovely balance that creates a very contemporary space. We love the subway tile and butcher block used in this kitchen by Jenna Sue Design.
Light Gray & Black Kitchen Cabinets
Light gray and black might not seem like a timeless choice, but when the gray is as light as this kitchen by Remedy Design it looks incredibly timeless and classic. And makes a beautiful choice for two tone cabinets in kitchen.

Mushroom is one of the colors we are seeing more and more of in kitchen design. We especially love this classic tone with a stark bright white to set it off. Pair it with brass fixtures for a classic look. This kitchen from Coco and Jack is a perfect inspriration!
