The Two-Toned Kitchen

TGIF friends!

As you may have read here, here, here and here, I have a deep and passionate longing for a white kitchen. After much back and forth and constant debate, I've almost pulled the trigger. I've got a couple quotes with two great companies, and have a few variations in mind, all resulting in a two tone kitchen. What are your thoughts on the look?

Obviously the more white I do, the more money I spend, but what do you think of my very sloppy, make shift renderings?




What you can't see is opposite the fridge on the east wall will be a brand spanking new pantry (it will be in the spot where my current wine rack is). I feel like in order to balance the tall white pantry, I most certainly have to do the panelled fridge in white, but hubby thinks differently. What are your thoughts, friends?

  2. I would do ALL the cabinets white and leave the island dark.

  3. I kind of like the idea of white cabinets with a dark island too...course it's easy for me to spend your money :)

  4. To be honest, I agree with you as far as the symmetry of the fridge and pantry, but of the renderings I like v3, the best. What about a v4 with dark cabinets but a white fridge, pantry, and island? Those white pieces will become the statements of your room, but with them evenly placed they'll encourage someone looking at the room to see the ENTIRE room, rather than stopping on one piece or focusing on how the room looks unbalanced.

  6. To be honest, I think that V2 is the most balanced of the three renderings.

  7. I love white kitchens and dual tone kitchens! Love your post. I would have agreed with the person above except you added the comment about your new white pantry. Maybe you start with just the island and your new pantry - because you can add more white easier than you can take some away!!!

  8. I think it looks amazing! It makes the room look so airy and large, so much potential there!
