Two-Toned Kitchen Cabinets Are the Best of Both Worlds

The hottest trend in kitchen decor right now is two-toned cabinets. By painting the lower cabinets a color and the top cabinets white (or visa-versa), you can add a pop of color to your kitchen without overwhelming the room.
We've gathered our favorite examples of two-toned kitchens below. To see more two-toned inspiration, visit the National Builder Supply blog:

      Not positive, but the light blue looks exactly like the color I used in my last kitchen remodel. Mine was called Sea Salt- by Sherwin Williams
