Two-Tone Kitchen Cabinets Bethlehem, PA by Dan Lenner, CMKBD
The two-tone kitchen cabinets in this Bethlehem, PA home are a defining piece of this traditional design by Morris Black designer Dan Lenner, CMKBD. Here’s a breakdown of their impact.
Main Tone—Divinity White Perimeter Cabinets
Divinity is the main color of the two-tone kitchen cabinets, a shade of white on the perimeter and wet bar. A large component of this Bethlehem, PA kitchen renovation is that the new kitchen occupies the space of the original kitchen plus the dining room space. Choosing Divinity as the main Yorktowne with “Iconic” flat panel series cabinet color furthered the aim to create an open and spacious kitchen.
Contrasting Tone—Spanish Paprika Island Cabinets
The homeowners wanted to add a pop of color to the design, which is why two-tone kitchen cabinets were the perfect choice for them. The bold Spanish Paprika, a rich shade of red, certainly provides a contrast to the main tone and adds the pop of color they were seeking.
However, restraining the red to the island, the open bookcase cabinet, and the floating shelf in the bar means it remains just that—a pop—and doesn’t overwhelm the room.
A Tale of Contrast
The two-tone kitchen cabinets aren’t the only areas of contrast in this Bethlehem, PA kitchen. Additionally, the milky white Caesarstone “Dreamy Marfil” quartz contrasts beautifully against the Spanish Paprika island, but would have failed to provide any contrast against Divinity. Instead, a darker quartz, Cambria’s “Nevern,” is on the perimeter countertop.
Finally, take note of the different wood stains found throughout the kitchen. The lighter herringbone hardwood floors provide a beautiful base for both of the two-tone cabinets to sit on. The dark trim provides a stark contrast that may have felt out of place had it not been complemented by the dark wood and leather bar stools that tie everything together.
What this Bethlehem, PA kitchen design really represents is a masterclass of contrast by Dan. Mixing so many colors and materials successfully is no easy feat, yet he’s made it look effortless in this two-tone kitchen cabinet design.
