Cutting-Edge Cabinets

Upper and lower cabinets don't always need to match to create a cohesive kitchen look.

Peter Fallico — host of HGTV's Home To Flip — designed this kitchen to have a contemporary yet liveable look. Here, a bank of white lacquered uppers pair with more traditional profiled wood doors below, resulting in a look that's fresh and new. A large island houses storage as well as the sink, while vintage-look industrial pendants add sparkle and personality.
