Since we are all staying home as much as possible, we need to look for ways to spend time (when you are not working from home). A home renovation is a good idea to keep you occupied, change what you’ve long wanted to change, and make your home a better place. If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, if you cook a lot, if you gather there often and do other things, start the renovation. We’ve already shared some ideas about bug-friendly home renovations, and today’s roundup is all about getting them super trendy.
Two-tone kitchens are making a big comeback, this trend is everywhere right now and there are good reasons for it. First, two-tone cabinets make your kitchen look less formal, second, it is a creative combination of different, often contrasting colors, and third, you can easily integrate this trend into your kitchen decor yourself. How? Just paint the top or bottom cabinets! If you’re already feeling inspired, I’d be happy to share some ideas with you!
Two-tone kitchens with wooden cabinets
The hottest idea right now is to combine painted and wooden or MDF cabinets to add a slight natural touch to the kitchen – anything natural is extremely trendy. Wood and white or gray are a very timeless and neutral scheme, and most wood tones look good with these colors. But no matter if you don’t like them – wood looks amazing with almost any color you can choose! Get a chic look that spice up your closets with metallic accents.
Colored two-tone kitchens
If you love putting different colors next to each other, skip plywood, wood, and MDF and go straight to the colors you love. White and gray, black and white, navy and white, mint and turquoise, black and beige – anything you can think of exists and if not – then you can create it yourself! A tile floor and countertops are lovely elements to combine the two colors you used. You can also add wooden elements, metallic handles or knobs and get a super stylish space!
Back to school is getting closer and it's time to think about what to do for your kids to make it more enjoyable.
