Hot Home Trend to Watch: The Two-Toned Kitchen

By Melissa Dittmann Tracey, REALTOR® Magazine

Two-toned colored kitchens are gaining popularity this year. White and gray painted cabinets are dominating kitchen color schemes, according to the 2017 Kitchen & Bath Design Trends survey conducted by the National Kitchen and Bath Association.

Particularly gray-toned kitchen cabinets are seeing a surge in popularity lately.

 

But colors are getting mixed too in adding a little more pizzazz to kitchen design. For example, the surrounding kitchen cabinets may be white and then the center island may have gray cabinets. Or, white cabinets may be on the top and then gray cabinets on the bottom.

 

 

Other materials are getting mixed in the kitchen too, but the combinations are mostly muted and simple. “Clean lines with no fussy moldings or trims,” one NKBA survey respondent said. “White kitchens are never going away, but I’ve recommended mixed countertop materials, mixed cabinet colors and frequently use lots of light/dark materials for contrast.”

 

 

That said, for the more daring, blue and black-toned cabinets, as well as high-gloss finishes are gaining popularity in kitchen designs too, according to NKBA’s survey.
