We wanted to try the trendy “two-tone” cabinet look for the kitchen in our new home. To achieve this look, we decided to use Ikea cabinets (for their price and look). We used Lidingo white doors for our uppers & pantry, and Ramsjo black-brown for our lowers and island.
Most of the kitchen was installed as per the directions, but we did end up hacking a 15×15″ cabinet for one of our top cabinets, and we removed a drawer from one of the lower cabinets to create a microwave nook by the stove.
