Growing Trend: Bi-Color Kitchen Cabinets

They say two heads are better than one, and I think two colors on your cabinets can be better than a single one.

Choosing a stronger color for bottom cabinets will anchor the room without overpowering it. Doing so also can be a thoughtful and less intimidating way to incorporate color into this function-driven room. In some instances, the colorful bottom cabinets can make appliances stand out less and look even better, while the blend of light upper cabinets with light wall colors makes for a more visually open space, giving the impression of a larger room with higher ceilings.

It's a growing trend that has some strong design pluses going for it and is therefore worth considering for anyone planning a reno or cabinet makeover. What are your thoughts on the bi-color look?
