Luxurious Two Tone Kitchen Cabinets

You might be thinking that two tone kitchen cabinets are another home trend that will be out of style next year. While some color choices will be going out, many colors are here to stay.

If done right, two-tone cabinets in the kitchen will remain in style for years to come, especially if you mix in wood with neutral tones.

A bold cabinet color is fun, but that will go out of style at some point. Instead of using pops of color in your kitchen, use those for smaller spaces like a bathroom or laundry room.

Those rooms are much easier to update in a weekend and are a lower budget project. Plus you might not get tired of the bold color choice on your bathroom vanity since it is not a main living space.

A kitchen is a large and expensive place to renovate, so try to be mindful of your color palate when designing this space.

Repainting cabinets is an option, but it is tedious and time consuming when you have several cabinets to paint.

Two Tone Kitchen Cabinets

Two tone kitchen cabinets are still very much on trend on 2023 and will remain in style throughout 2024.

A kitchen island is a much smaller space to incorporate color and it acts as a focal point for the room.

Neutral Two Tone Cabinets

My favorite way to mix in multiple colors in a kitchen is to select a neutral, a wood tone, and a pop of color.

This is a safer and more classic option that will remain in style for many years to come.

Green Cabinets with Wood Cabinets

Sometimes staying safe isn’t the best option because if you aren’t careful, you could end up with a boring builder grade kitchen.

If you are feeling a bold color then go for it because look at how awesome it can turn out. These green painted cabinets have a gray undertone to cool down the bold green and blend with other tones in the room.

When selecting a bold color try to find a softer or muted version of the color, so it blends easily with existing colors and decor.

Plus going with a toned down version of any color will prevent you from getting tired of looking at it.

If you are looking for ideas, these are my favorite shades of gray green paint colors for kitchen cabinets.

Coastal Two Tone Kitchen Cabinets

These coastal two tone kitchen cabinets in bright blue and navy pair perfectly with white painted upper cabinets.

Coastal interior design will always remain in style, but with a modern twist mixed in.

Updating the hardware for a sleek pull and bringing in geometric tiles help blend the two styles. You might like these popular slate blue cabinet colors for your kitchen makeover.

If coastal interiors are your style then you will love these other coastal kitchens! You don’t have to live near the beach to appreciate a coastal kitchen.

Greige and Gray Green Cabinets

All greige painted kitchen cabinets look amazing with a pop of color from the gray green island.

Painting the kitchen island an unexpected color is a fun way to elevate the space by creating a focal point.

Even with a darker kitchen island the kitchen still has light and airy feel because of the surrounding greige, white, and natural lighting.

You can’t go wrong with greige painted cabinets and white walls because they go with everything.


We hope you feel inspired to paint your kitchen cabinets or at least your island for a two tone look. If you aren’t quite ready to go bold in the kitchen, try painting a bathroom vanity with a fun unexpected color.

Using the color in a smaller area is a good way to test if you actually like the color. Sometimes, you can really like a color on the paint chip then once it’s on the wall, not so much.
