You’ve probably seen lots of kitchens with different colours on the upper and lower cabinets, or an island that’s a different colour or material than the rest of the cabinetry in the kitchen. Here’s a twist on the unmatched look that I find quite striking – kitchen cabinet doors that are a different colour than the cabinetry around them.
When I came across this picture, I was instantly struck by the contrast between the dark glass doors with the white cabinetry. They remind me of black steel-framed windows, which I love.

And then I came across this glam kitchen with chrome (or are they mirrored?) glass doors in an ad for SieMatic.
In this black & white kitchen designed by sisters Katrina & Amie on The Block, the white upper cabinets are framed in black, and the black doors above the fridge are framed in white. Nice contrast :-)
This kitchen by Downsview Kitchens takes the idea a step further with white doors combined with dark grey cabinetry. Love the stripe effect created by the line of grey drawers.
Here are a couple more kitchens by Downsview Kitchens with another take on this look – stainless steel drawers and wood cabinetry.
Another example of combining stainless steel drawers and wood.

These two kitchen designs by Allimilmo are a bit over the top – they take this idea in a different direction with metal trim around the doors and drawers. I think this look would work better with only the upper or lower doors framed in metal, though. Sometimes you can have too much of a good thing!
How do you feel about combining different finishes in your kitchen cabinetry? Would you incorporate any of these looks into your kitchen?
