Instead, you have a slew of options when it comes to cabinet design and storage. You might swap upper cabinets for open shelving, for instance. You could pop one set of hardware on top cabinets and another unique option for lower cabinets. Or, grab a paintbrush and paint them two different colors.nbsp;
Two-toned cabinetry has become a huge trend, mainly because they look great. Heres why you should consider transforming your kitchen with a few coats of paint on a select few cabinets:nbsp;
Whats a Two-Toned Kitchen?nbsp;
You can probably picture what a two-toned kitchen looks like simply, you paint some cabinets in one color and a handful of others in a different hue. Designers divide up the space in multiple ways. Sometimes, for instance, theyll paint the island a bolder or more saturated color. Then, theyll brush a neutral tone on the rest of the cabinets. Or, you cannbsp;try painting upper cabinetsnbsp;one shade, and lower cabinets in another.nbsp;

Why Should I Paint My Cabinets This Way?nbsp;
A two-toned kitchen design makes your space stand out, but there are more reasons to choose two different cabinet colors for your space. Here are a few more reasons why its a good idea:nbsp;
Two Tones Create Contrast
You dont want your kitchen blending together. Cabinets, countertops, walls and flooring that all come in similar shades wont make much of a statement. Instead, your homes culinary centerpiece will just appear a bit dull or run-of-the-mill.nbsp;
If you mix it up by, say, painting the island a darker hue than the rest, though, you will create just enough contrast to make your kitchen pop. And, since contrast is one ofnbsp;the biggest trends in kitchen designnbsp;right now, your two-tone cabinets can make things fresh and modern, too.nbsp;
Two Tones Draw the Eye to a Design Highlight
Some designers use two-tone cabinets to draw the eye to a design feature that they want to showcase. For example, lets say youve chosen a different countertop material for your island. It might not stand out enough on its own, but placing it on a lighter or darker cabinet than the rest of the kitchen will say, "Look here." Then, everyone will notice the stunning stone atop the painted wooden base.nbsp;
On that note, painted upper cabinets can draw the eye upward to accentuate the height of the room. Or, if you have a large kitchen, painted cabinets at the back can highlight the depth. Painted uppers can flaunt a unique light fixture, pot rack or skylight, as well.nbsp;
