On another note ...painted cabinets are not my favorite either. I always thought painted cabinets came before the stained cabinets were the norm. I just like the wood and how rich it looks. I worked as a nurse in the hospital and everything was white so perhaps that bias is carried over so when I am home I do not want white or tan painted cabinets. Again, each to his/her own preference, my goal is if I ever walked into your kitchen I would hope that you would be so excited to tell me all about it. I could see the excitement in your face and know that you loved how you kitchen turned out. That to me would be worth it all to know that you were so happy with the kitchen even it it had nothing in it. Just the fact that you were happy is what would make me so happy for you. Have a great day.

Agree it can be done discreetly if you know how to pull it off......but judging from all the pics I agree with others they look like thrown together as a bargain option. They appear to lose the cohesive look, although one does not want the other side of looking mundane.

Two-tone cabinets are not going to be dated. The only element that dates is bad design. Fear no color by itself--only bad design.
