The Impact of Undertones

Undertones are subtle hints of color that are found in different shades. They can be warm, cool, or neutral and greatly impact how a color “feels” in a certain space. Warm undertones foster an air of coziness and comfort while cool undertones are often associated with more modern designs.

In recent years, cool grays and whites became the color palette of choice for modern kitchens. While these Macungie, PA homeowners loved the look, they wanted a warmer finish. In response, Christine flipped the traditionally cool color palette on its head by selecting Frappe—a gray finish with warm undertones—for the Yorktowne maple cabinets. This decision infused warmth and comfort into the design of their new modern kitchen.

Other Cozy Details

The gray kitchen cabinets aren’t the only element that added warmth to this kitchen design in Macungie, PA. Take note of the stacked crowns above the wall cabinets and the lantern-esque pendant lights over the island. These details may seem small, but you’d definitely notice if they weren’t there. These little touches paired with the warm color palette transform an otherwise modern design into a transitional kitchen.

While the design may be transitional, the appliances selected are ultra modern. The Miele 36-inch Dual Fuel model range with M Touch features self-cleaning options, precise cooking, and Network-enabled WiFi. The French Door Refrigerator from Dacor also features cutting-edge technology that preserves food and beverages longer. Not to mention, all of the appliances are stainless steel to pair beautifully with the gray kitchen cabinets.
