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:

    I have a very small kitchen. The walls are yellow & the wall behind my sink is red (my fav color!). I have 5 lower cabinets that I'd love to paint red. Do you think it would make my kitchen look even smaller?
