Dual-Tone To achieve this look, paint your upper cabinets a different color than your lower cabinets. While there are millions of color combinations, some of the more popular include black on bottom and white on top, or bold colors on bottom and neutral on top. You could also contrast colors between wall cabinets and island cabinets.
European styling: If you love the European appeal of cabinetry, than modern styled are for you. From rich colors and shiny lacquer finishes, to exotic wood appearances and streamlined hardware.

When spending a lot of money on a remodel you’ll want to create a space you love, but if you’re planning on selling at some point you’ll also want to secure a return on your investment (you’ll also want to like the room yourself 20 years from now as your tastes change).
Clutter is usually a side effect of not having enough storage. Often, more storage isn’t the solution — simplifying and decluttering your kitchen is. Go through your cabinets and drawers (especially the back) and donate or toss anything that you haven’t used for a while. Ask yourself if you really need a cherry-pitting tool or an egg slicer. Once you’ve cleared the cabinets, clear the counters by storing the items that cause visual clutter.
Choose a material: The most common material is wood for kitchen cabinets. Wood is durable, versatile, and can be stained or painted and can have a million different looks. Other materials include metal/stainless steel, plastic laminate, and lower quality MDF or particle board. Depending on your lifestyle and budget will help you decide on a material that suits your style and wallet. Metal cabinets and wood are more expensive than plastic laminate and particle board.
Engineered white quartz is durable and non-porous so it’s more sanitary and resists stains, scratches and corrosion. White concrete can achieve that pure white look and it’s also incredibly durable. White glass can be pricey, but in addition to being sleek and bright it’s also non-porous and perhaps the most hygienic option. If you’re on a budget, today’s laminates mimic more expensive granite and marble and also resist scratching and chipping.
