            • 1. Select stately shaker

              To ensure a two-tone layout stands the test of time, @clairephotouk has used shaker fronts, which have a classic look that offers long-lasting style.
            • 2. Built-in style

              The built-in handgrips on @nsideno.6's integrated handle fronts reduce visual distractions for a sophisticated scheme that lets the colours take the spotlight.
            • 3. Add a black backdrop

              @Deerwood_renovation has ramped up the drama by introducing charcoal units to a design. The dark shade also draws the room in for a cosier feel.
            • 4. Embrace earthy tones

              Bring the outdoors in with natural tones, such as green. Pick a leafy shade to add two-tone colours in a subtle way.
            • 5. Choose a tonal palette

              If you are stuck between two shades of grey, go for both. @Lorraine Stapleton shows how darker base units will define a cooking zone in an open layout.
            • 6. A blue centrepiece

              To add depth to her light-grey design, @hollybushhome has chosen a navy island feature to create an eye-catching focal point where guests can gather.
            • 7. Pastel pop

              For a cheerful two-tone look, opt for a fun, pink shade. This hue adds a fresh feel and can be blended with classic colours, like navy, for everlasting appeal.
            • 8. Get keen on cream

              Thanks to its neutral tone and warming qualities, cream is a great two-tone kitchen idea for those wanting a softer decor that will transcend trends.
            • 9. Refine with shine

              With a shiny exterior, glossy units will add visual interest to a two-tone design. They will also soften bolder colours and reflect light for a brighter feel.
            • 10. Matt and maximalist

              By picking matt units, @mahefamilydeco, has unified the different tones, patterns, and door styles of their scheme while reducing distractions.
