Next, you could consider the true DIY route and build your own cabinets. This may seem daunting, but cabinets are in the range of "medium difficulty" when it comes to carpentry and construction. There are many online resources and books available for reference should you choose this route.
LED lighting has had a particularly good run as homeowners change over from traditional incandescent bulbs. It provides good lighting for activities, comes in a variety of colors and the bulbs last for a really long time. This has made it a popular option for under-cabinet lighting. Under cabinet LED lights come in different forms including pucks, strips, and bars. When fixed under the wall cabinetry, they help add light to the working area as well as improve the overall ambiance. LED is not the only type of lighting that can be fixed under the cabinet. You could opt for fluorescent fixtures, which are almost as energy efficient as LED and produce minimal heat. Xenon lights give off some heat but they can be dimmed and have an attractive warm glow. You could also go with halogen lights, but this is not always a good idea. They give off too much heat which could affect foods or drinks you have stored inside the cabinet.
Actual two-tone. Instead of mixing and matching color cabinets, select cabinets that have a two-tone look to them. Careful with choosing cabinets in a repeating two-tone effect — they may look too busy. Our favorite, contemporary look that will withstand the test of time involves two-tone cabinets that are one color for the actual cabinets and doors, with a second color around the exterior frame.
