By now, I am sure everyone is aware of the latest kitchen trend: navy cabinets! But the navy kitchen trend does not stop there, in fact, two-toned kitchens is the most requested kitchen trend in kitchen designing right now and nothing works better in a two-toned kitchen than the classic color combo white and navy.
When the husband and wife team, Syd and Shea McGee from Studio McGee, was hired to design this kitchen, they knew their new clients loved white kitchens, but what really surprised them was that they were open to adding some navy cabinetry as well. The decision was quite uncomplicated; “Benjamin Moore HC-154 Hale Navy” (a very popular navy paint color for kitchens) was used on the lower cabinets and kitchen island and “Benjamin Moore PM-1 Super White” (a crisp white) was chosen for the upper cabinets.
The designers came up with a plan to mix elements such as satin brass, rope and dark stained floors to add warmth and texture to this two-toned kitchen. The result was, as you will see, a kitchen reno that will stand the test of the time thanks to its charming setup.
Before and After Two-toned Kitchen Reno
Before: The old kitchen felt cramped, dark and had an awkward layout.
After: The new kitchen offers plenty of natural light, more space and a smart layout.
This dreamy two-toned kitchen has plenty of personality and great ideas! I love the rope pendants and the satin brass faucet. The leather barstools add a hint of masculinity to this kitchen.
This navy blue and white kitchen features 6×6 white tile backsplash.
