Kitchen Cabinetry 101

A revised Kitchen with open plan to a naturally lit Sun/Morning Room.

In recent years, it has been popular to build a “two-tone” kitchen; one color on the island, with a second on the “surround”, the outside upper and/or lower cabinets. Currently, we ’re seeing a resurgence of single-color kitchens, sometimes with different countertops on the island or surround for design ”pop”. Using a single color (most often a lighter hue such as white, gray, or beige) provides a cohesive effect, helps a kitchen feel light and clean, and can help visually expand the space.

As clean lines and simpler interior details gain traction in the marketplace, inset or frameless cabinet doors are also gaining popularity.
