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.
Linoleum: Linoleum is the traditional resilient flooring option that predates vinyl and, unlike vinyl, it is made with natural materials Linoleum is durable and antibacterial and available in a variety of colors and patterns. It also offers a small amount of cushion underfoot.
Transitional styling is the “Goldilocks” zone of home décor. It`s the one true constant that can travel throughout all styles. Dabble in contemporary elements without straying too far from the warmth of traditional design. It can be the combination of natural stone-look tiles with gleaming white walls and 50`s style sofas or a match between wood wainscoting and modern leather and glass furniture. When it comes to kitchen cabinetry, transitional styling isn`t new, It`s become the mainstay. You will find a combination of differing degrees within this style from the subtle to the dramatic. Like taking Euro style wood cabinetry and placing it in a pre-war building with ornate architectural detailing on the walls & ceiling. Or combing styles, traditional shaker style doors painted white, ornate chandelier above the island, with marble countertops, and flat black hardware. It`s easy and effortless. Transitional style is perfect when you want something comfortable yet a bit interesting. If the minimalism of contemporary style appeals to you, but you still cannot leave behind the nostalgia of traditional styling–transitional kitchen cabinets are perfect for you.
If neither of those makeovers seems appealing, start researching kitchen cabinet companies. While kitchen cabinets may seem confusing at first, keep in mind that they are mainly divided into two groups: base cabinets, on which the countertop sits, and wall cabinets, which are screwed directly into the wall and hold foodstuffs as well as plates, pans, and glassware.
