Two-tone Cabinetry.

Trying to decide on the perfect colour palette for your new kitchen? Torn between two colours?

The good news is that two-tone cabinetry kitchens are a wonderful option for your home. With many stylish and popular pairings to choose from, below we explore our favourite colours to team together in 2021.

Black and white L-shaped kitchen

Black & White.

A match made in interior design heaven, a classic monochrome colour palette is a firm favourite in Australian kitchens, and it’s easy to see why! Creating a neutral canvas that will stand the test of time, this combination complements a range of kitchen styles. For example, if you love the Hamptons look, Shaker-profiled doors are the perfect fit, especially when paired with ornate handles designs.

Conversely, if a sleeker, more contemporary look is more appealing, a flat door profile with a subtle sheen or texture and matte black hardware will work beautifully.

White & Timber.

Cabinetry in both ultra-white white and timber-look is the perfect base for evoking a Coastal or Scandi-inspired kitchen. Consider a flat door profile across the whole room or add texture by introducing panel-look cabinetry.

Enhance this classic colour palette with your choice of hardware and accessories. For example, a hint of metallic of either brass for Coastal-inspired spaces or silver-hued for a room that celebrates a Scandinavian style.

White & Grey.

Combining white and grey cabinetry is another popular choice for modern Australian kitchens and a sophisticated alternative if black and white is too bold for your taste and home. Modern and fresh, we love how the kitchen shown to the left also brings in natural light and greenery with bi-fold windows, enhancing the beauty of the two-tone joinery.

Complement your cabinetry’s palette with both benchtops and splashbacks in a classic marble-look such as Caesarstone’s® Empira White or Statuario Maximus. Don’t overlook the power of lighting, using strip lighting under the kickboards or wall cabinetry to highlight the understated beauty of your cabinetry selection.

Charcoal & Timber.

Mix deep shades of charcoal and warm timbers in your joinery selection to create a warm and welcoming kitchen. We love this mixture shown above of Freedom Kitchens’ Jericho Nuance and Charcoal Riven cabinetry from their Impressions range, which feature a subtle timber-grain finish.

Maintain a seamless look by integrating key appliances and opt for a benchtop in a neutral shade or a light grey concrete-look such as Caesarstone’s® Airy Concrete. Break up blocks of joinery with open shelving along back walls – Black Framed Glass Shelving is a perfect option.

Black & Concrete.

Present a luxurious industrial kitchen by pairing light concrete-inspired cabinetry with Black Ultra matt cabinetry for an ultra-chic and modern space that you will love spending time in.

Integrated or Touch Catch handles will ensure that the focus remains on the cabinetry and concrete-inspired countertops such as Caesarstone’s ® Rugged Concrete to bring the look together.
