Design Idea \ Mixing Colors

Color Ideas, Kitchen Design, Kraftmaid cabinets, Portfolio Comments Off on Design Idea \ Mixing Colors

When it comes time to design your kitchen, the color choice of your cabinets is a HUGE part of how your kitchen will look. Mixing 2 or more colors in the kitchen design is a popular trend that can maximize the visual impact of your kitchen without costing much more money than having all the cabinets the same color. While you may be thinking “I can’t decide on one color for my kitchen much less two!” Don’t worry, the designers here at CDG are trained in the latest design trends and colors. We can suggest colors that work well together and even show you some examples of past kitchens we have done with multiple colors to help give you some color inspiration.

Designer: Randy Rumpf
Installer: Tony Roper
Cabinets: Kraftmaid Rutherford Taupe Glaze with Kraftmaid Rutherford Garnett Glaze Accents

Along with 2 tone design, this kitchen features some pretty intricate crown molding details, look at the “keystones” above the fluted columns, fridge cabinet, and the hutch at the end of the run

The Island and beadboard backsplash were done in Garnett Glaze to give this kitchen some extra flair. Furniture posts were used to create a “table” to allow people to eat at the island.


Designer: Todd Whiddon
Installer: Randy Rumpf
Cabinets: Kraftmaid Cherry Forge Autumn Blush with Kraftmaid Marquette Maple Charcoal Accents

This kitchens uses a bold mix of Cherry and Black, highlights include Double Stack wall cabinets, Fluted Columns, Arched Toekicks, and Multi-Piece Crown

Integrating Microwaves into Islands is becoming very popular. Here we incorporated it into a raised bar design to go along with the raised dishwasher which makes them more user friendly than having it at standard base cabinet height.


What was an ugly structural column was transformed to blend right in with the cabinets! While it may look beautiful, this appliance wall was a challenge for everyone involved to make the appliances and cabinets fit perfectly. This is why it is important to start your design early in the process so if you have a tight configuration like this, walls can be adjusted before the drywall stage!

This is not your average pantry! Over 30 individual components were used to create this custom piece!
