A wise choice of proper color and varnishes is all that you need to age kitchen cabinets. Thus the solution to how to antique kitchen cabinet hardware, becomes pretty simple, without actually buying any antique cabinets and appliances. You simply need to make a few changes, which are definitely, very economical. Antique kitchen cabinets do not demand a lot. You do not need to make any changes to your kitchen cabinets, door knobs, or even the kitchen cabinet hinges. However, the look that you are planning to give to your kitchen, should compliment the appearance of the remaining house.
Changing the Veneer: Veneer also decides the way your cabinets will look and damaged veneer which has lost the polish and shine looks old and boring even after cleaning if for hours. And hence, replacing old veneer with new one can help you give a new touch to the kitchen cabinets, there are various designs and colors available in the veneers that you can experiment with. For example, instead of single color, you can use two to three colors of veneers to get the desired effect to the kitchen cabinets. But again, remember to choose the veneers that will match your kitchen well and not look out of the place.
A Victorian kitchen decorating style is a pretty combination of gracefulness and sturdiness, which is thought to be strange by many people. However, those of you who like wooden furniture and feel really out of place with contemporary furniture, must surely opt for this kind of kitchen decor. This style is all about lark spits, spice tins, sugar nippers, marmalade cutters, brass pots, chinaware, steel kitchen cutlery, cast iron skillets, and wooden cabinets. If you are designing your house and are determined to have a this design, then let me tell you that such kitchens were usually set up in the basement or the outbuilding of the house. The cabinets had movable sideboards and cupboards. Kitchen island and a rustic fireplace were the must haves as well. Cabinets were not inbuilt, and according to the thinking of those days, they should look like a handy furniture. So, make sure you keep these things in mind when you implement these decorating ideas in your home.
As mentioned earlier, you can create a combination of colors in cabinets if you find black too overpowering, even within the contemporary design framework. Use colors such as gray and white, perhaps, with a dash of red to create the perfect combination. The combination can also be attained in terms of such black furniture pieces and white flooring, and perhaps, red chairs at your breakfast table. Also, use a bright backsplash to complete this look. As overdone as you may find this color combination, nothing speaks contemporary better than this one.
The materials used in contemporary kitchen cabinetry range from stainless steel to glass. When wood is used, it is usually lightly grained like birch, ash, or maple, as they usually look well in simple designs. There are certain designers, developing lines of kitchen cabinetry that feature renewable materials, such as bamboo. This is not only environmentally friendly, but also has quite a pleasing aesthetic result. If you would rather avoid wood, then you can go in for metal kitchen cabinets. While stainless steel, with its mirror-like finish, continues to be a popular choice, metal kitchen cabinets that are made of copper, give a rather antique look to the kitchen. Not only are they aesthetically appealing, but are also resistant to corrosion and staining. Using thermofoil and melamine as your chosen material allows you to make a dramatic statement with a wide range of color options.
