Get two-toned in the kitchen. There's no need to get too match-y, if you want to be on trend. Kitchen cabinets are popping up in more than one shade to add an eye-catching contrast.

Indeed, 42 percent of remodelers surveyed by the National Kitchen and Bath Association say they used a mix of color cabinets in their most recent remodels, such as white cabinets with a dark wood or gray center island. Also in mixing up the color palette, remodelers reported using a different countertop material for the island and then another countertop material for the counter space, such as a wood top combined with a stone top.
