Trying to decide on the perfect colour palette for your new Freedom Kitchen? Torn between two colours? The good news is that two-tone cabinetry kitchens are a wonderful option for your home. With many stylish and popular pairings to choose from, below we explore our favourite colours to team together in 2021.

Black & White


A match made in interior design heaven, a classic monochrome colour palette is a firm favourite in Australian kitchens, and it’s easy to see why! Creating a neutral canvas that will stand the test of time, this combination complements a range of kitchen styles. For example, if you love the Hamptons look, Shaker-profiled doors are the perfect fit, especially when paired with ornate handles designs. Conversely, if a sleeker, more contemporary look is more appealing, a flat door profile with a subtle sheen or texture and matte black hardware will work beautifully.

White & Timber


Cabinetry in both ultra-white white and timber-look is the perfect base for evoking a Coastal or Scandi-inspired kitchen. Consider a flat door profile across the whole room or add texture by introducing panel-look cabinetry – our new Vera and Verity door profiles are wonderful options.

Enhance this classic colour palette with your choice of hardware and accessories. For example, a hint of metallic of either brass for Coastal-inspired spaces or silver-hued for a room that celebrates a Scandinavian style.

White & Grey


Combining white and grey cabinetry is another popular choice for modern Australian kitchens and a sophisticated alternative if black and white is too bold for your taste and home. Modern and fresh, we love how the kitchen shown above also brings in natural light and greenery with bi-fold windows, enhancing the beauty of the two-tone joinery. To recreate this look opt for Iceland Peak White Satin doors with integrated Peak handles for the lower cupboards with Newbury Fox Flint, a stunning mid-grey door, adding a pop of grey on upper back joinery.

Complement your cabinetry’s palette with both benchtops and splashbacks in a classic marble-look such as Caesarstone’s® Empira White or Statuario Maximus. Don’t overlook the power of lighting, using strip lighting under the kickboards or wall cabinetry to highlight the understated beauty of your cabinetry selection.

Charcoal & Timber


Mix deep shades of charcoal and warm timbers in your joinery selection to create a warm and welcoming kitchen. We love this mixture shown above of Jericho Nuance and Charcoal Riven cabinetry from the Impressions range, which feature a subtle timber-grain finish.

Maintain a seamless look by integrating key appliances and opt for a benchtop in a neutral shade or a light grey concrete-look such as Caesarstone’s® Airy Concrete. Break up blocks of joinery with open shelving along back walls – our 2020 Black Alumin Shelves are a perfect option.

Grey & Grey


If you dream of a New York loft-style kitchen, then pairing various shades of grey joinery and benchtops is a beautiful way to achieving this. Evoke an industrial look and feel with cabinetry in Impressions Charcoal Nuance and Newbury Fox Flint as shown below for a moody colour scheme that is bound to impress! These darker shades of grey are our pick instead of a lighter tone to ensure that this luxe and modern look is brought to life. Handles and accessories such as taps and sinks in matte black will further add to the style.

Black & Concrete


Present a luxurious industrial kitchen by pairing Freedom Kitchens light concrete-inspired cabinetry in Luxe Beton Texture with Alaskan Black Ultramatt for an ultra-chic and modern space that you will love spending time in.

Integrated or Touch Catch handles will ensure that the focus remains on the cabinetry and concrete-inspired countertops such as Caesarstone’s ® Rugged Concrete to bring the look together.
