Kitchen backsplash provides good visual effects on walls which are of a light shade. You can also have a small backsplash behind the kitchen sink. It can be a simple tiled pattern or a little mosaic. Take a look at the four pictures above to get a better idea on how to match the flooring and backsplash with white kitchen cabinets.
If your kitchen cabinets are light colored, you can apply a glaze color to darken them. This can be done through the process of staining. Apply a certain amount of glaze color on a limited area of the kitchen and start rubbing it using a wipe or sponge, until you get the desired color on that portion of your wood work. Once you are done with that particular area, color the remaining portions using the same process. Take care, that the entire cabinet has the same uniform color. One very important factor is that you need to choose a proper color. For antique kitchen cabinets, you should use metallic colors.
Another important factor that determines whether or not you should have them is the amount of natural light that your kitchen receives. If it is situated in a dark corner, having such furniture pieces is not such a great idea. If it is well-lit, then black in combination with a lighter color will allow for a great reflection of the natural light, and help you express your style with panache. Finally, the overall kitchen décor also determines their suitability. Create a theme by which you can easily accommodate that color in your cabinets, without making it too overpowering or out of place. The ones that define the modernity of design or a rustic theme can all be a great way of introducing this color in your favorite place.
An acrylic water based glaze is the best option for an already painted kitchen cabinet. If your cabinet has not been painted in recent times, then you can choose an oil based glaze, instead of the water based one. Crackle painting and faux painting are among the other options that you can use to give your kitchen an antique look. For crackle painting your kitchen cabinets, you need two colors of latex paint and a crackle glaze. Apply the base color to your kitchen cabinets after they have been cleaned thoroughly and allow it to dry. A thick coat of crackle paint is then applied on the base color. The top color is finally applied on the crackle paint.
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.
