Trend Alert – Mixed Cabinet Finishes in the Kitchen

A kitchen with wooden cabinets and counter tops featuring mixed finishes.

A major trend in kitchens this year is mixing cabinet colors.  This is a style that can give your kitchen an instant update.  Dark stained wood cabinetry mixed with white painted cabinets can be a strong contrast and give your kitchen a bold and interesting look.  Incorporating a red, blue or black painted island can give your kitchen a more custom appeal.  Here are a few examples of mixed cabinet finishes in the kitchen to help you decide if this trend is for you.
