Two-tone kitchen cabinets use at least two very contrasting hues. Here, there are actually three sets of cabinets in three different levels and locations. One set of cabinets is continuous from the ceiling that uses the same off-white color. Other two sets are distinctly colored. The cabinets and drawers under the grayish colored granite countertop are colored lime green. These can be opened using the steel handles. These run horizontal or vertical to the surface of the countertop. Considering off-white and lime-green colored cabinets and drawers, you would say these are two-toned kitchen cabinets. Additionally, there are another set of cabinets and drawers around the kitchen island. These cabinets are distinctly made of dark chocolate hardwood with ornamental handles pointing towards the floor. We have to consider this contrasting coloring impact for the design of the two-tone kitchen cabinets.

Floating cabinets are useful to accommodate maximum free space in the kitchen. Often various obstructions prevent the continuous design and fitting of the cabinets. These commonly include the kitchen sink or the stove-cum-oven. You need to keep in mind to leave a certain height above these before adding an overhead cabinet. As a result, you use floating cabinets. Several grey colored cabinets line the area above the countertop. Notice the cabinet above the oven-cum-stove. Compared to the three adjacent cabinets it lacks height. Again, the cabinet above the sink is a lot shorter than those three cabinets. You can open all cabinets with the help of the provided knobs. Also, in this kitchen, there are several off-white cabinets and drawers with steel handles under countertops.

Giving a Glossy Finish to the cabinets is the opposite of giving a matte finish. Glossy and matte finishes are two extreme painting finish technologies. The glossy look reflects all the lights of spectra and looks bright and inviting. On the other hand, the matte finish looks sleek because matte surface diffuses light in a wide range of angles. Between matte and glossy, there are intermediate stages (matte, eggshell, satin, silk, semi-gloss and high gloss). The glossy finish is best on white color and that is what has been used for the kitchen cabinets.
