Painted Lower Cabinets in Kitchen Designs.

Photo Jun 30, 7 13 19 PM
Painting the lower cabinets in a  contrasting color from the rest of the kitchen or the upper cabinets, OR using a different material from  the upper cabinets is a design trend that many designers and homeowners seem to be embracing. It’s a great way to add interest and contrast in the kitchen. Of course, I found the best examples for you to peruse and decide if this look is for you…

I love anything that gives a kitchen interest and I think it works very well!

I love this look. In our kitchen the lower cabinets seem to get more wear, I will try this in the next kitchen. The first photo is my dream.

Hmmm, I think I'm still partial to natural wood, but the first ones are very pretty. I just LOVE that wall-mounted hutch.

You have a wonderful week, sweet friend! xo.

Think this works well with most color combinations you've picked. What seems important is to have a clear dividing line between the upper & lower so that your eyes don't keep jumping around, e.g. don't like blackboard over robin blue base cabinets. Also don't like the green, black & white - fighting too much for attention. Guess my favorites are the white upper with almost anything nice below.

Wow you are at the top of things!! Love it and it is very cool eclectic idea that is quite inspiring ... Suddenly I don't appreciate the very same too to bottom kitchens anymore ((: well I never did but the examples you picked are lovely.

Hi again Stacey,
I'd never thought of this before, but what a clever idea to have the lower cabinets a different color or material!

I have always loved this look and often wondered if I would be brave enough to do this. The first image is the one that I love the best.
