Kitchen cab­i­nets that aren’t white

Sackville Tribune - - REAL ESTATE -

For years, many kitchen ren­o­va­tions have fo­cused on white cab­i­nets.

While pop­u­lar, this choice can be unin­spir­ing and of­ten dif­fi­cult to keep clean. Here are three ideas for your kitchen cab­i­nets that will stand the test of time but have a bit more per­son­al­ity than white alone.

1. Blonde wood

Nat­u­rally pale wood com­bines the fresh, airy feel of white cab­i­nets with the warm, homey feel of a cot­tage kitchen. Think light-coloured Nordic in­flu­ences rather than the dark, lac­quered stains from decades past.

2. Grey

Grey cab­i­nets are great for kitchens be­cause they’re neu­tral but add the kind of vis­ual in­ter­est that you can’t get with white. No mat­ter your style, there’s a grey that will work for your kitchen. Go for an al­most-white tone for an un­ex­pected twist or try a char­coal hue for a more dra­matic, el­e­gant look.

3. Two-tone

There’s no rule that says all cab­i­nets have to be same. Dou­ble down on the grey trend by paint­ing the low­ers char­coal and the up­pers a pale grey to make your ceil­ings look higher. Or ex­per­i­ment with colour by pair­ing a bold-hued is­land with nat­u­ral wood cab­i­nets.

Choos­ing one of these stylish op­tions will add char­ac­ter to your kitchen in a way that white cab­i­nets alone can’t.
