Designer Karina Bryant of K_Souki Design Studio used complementary colors and textures in her cupboards, contrasting the shiny white upper cabinets with the darker wood-grained lower cabinets. You could get a similar effect by painting upper cabinets in a bright high gloss paint. Keeping the lower cabinets darker makes them easier to clean, especially with children in the house, Bryant points out. The Atlanta home was built by Imery Group.
Creamy upper cabinets contrast against soft brown lower cabinets and island in this transitional kitchen. White-and-gray marble is used for the countertops and backsplash, evoking elegance and classic style.
White upper cabinets and dark wooden lower cabinets set the tone in this midcentury modern kitchen designed by HGTV's Property Brothers. A black quartz countertop and stainless steel appliances complete the look.
This kitchen is beautifully balanced with blue lower cabinets and an island paired with white upper cabinets and a clean white subway tile backsplash. Brass accents and hardwood floors bring in sunnier tones.
Woodgrain cabinets highlight the midcentury modern influence in this kitchen design. White countertops transition the lower cabinetry to the bright upper decor featuring gray and white tile walls, white cabinets and floating shelves.
A wood support beam and white glass-front cabinets make this a warm, classic space. The glass-front cabinets provide a highlight feature, while the upper and lower cabinetry lights create the perfect ambiance.
