Yes, it’s true. I can no longer truly fall in love with a kitchen whose cabinets are only one color. I just can’t, after seeing so many beautiful kitchens where the upper cabinets are a different color than the lower. Check out some examples below:
My favorite combination: white upper cabinets and beige lower cabinets from Cottage Living.
A slightly more subtle shift from cream upper cabinets to light beige lower cabinets via decorpad.
Another great combination: white upper cabinets and wood lower cabinets in Kitchens & Baths.

I love how this modern kitchen breaks with tradition in putting the darker colored cabinets on top, and the green trim around a few of the cabinets adds additional fun. From Canadian House & Home.
Using darker cabinets on top can also work in a traditional design.
