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.
The Rustic Theme, Though this theme centers more around wooden colors and elements, there are ways in which you can incorporate black in the scheme of your kitchen design. One of the best ways to do so is by installing distressed cabinets that will not look too modern and, in fact, fit in perfectly with your overall design.
Black is a color that speaks complete elegance and style. What's more, it is so versatile that it can be used in both, a contemporary as well as a traditional setting. Why not use the charm of this color to create a style statement then, and design your kitchen with black cabinets? Now, as beautiful as it may look, this is the color you have to play safe with. While a little can add the much-needed missing element from your overall design, an excess can ruin the look of your kitchen and make it drab, overpowering, and even claustrophobic. On the positive side, this color can be combined with almost every other one to create a wonderful color combination that speaks for itself.
As mentioned earlier, they should not look inbuilt, as the concept of inbuilt kitchen cupboards was introduced recently during the 20th century. If possible, get movable cupboards. If it's a base cabinet, then it should have turned legs. The décor in question is an assortment of stained and painted finishes. As long as the colors are complementing each other, you can use a combination of even three to four colors. Along with colors, they must also bear different depths and heights. Some should be deep, while some should be shallow. If you are aiming for wall shelves, then you can opt for the open style. Now, we come to the material to be used. Well, most of the rich, stained, and dark types of wood, like oak, birch, chestnut, cherry, elm, etc., are suitable materials for the typical urban cupboards. Light-stained materials would mess up the mood of your kitchen.
Similar to the white and steel-colored appliances, there are a few modern kitchens which are decorated with a basic black color for all the appliances. Black is a neutral color, and not many dark shades look good when paired with it. For this reason, painting the kitchen cabinets in a slightly light color would look perfect. Colors like light blue, any shade of brown, violet, gray, mauve, light wooden brown, mustard, beige, light lemon-green, and ivory can be used. These colors are not only unique, but also have a wide range of shades in them.Making a choice for your kitchen cabinet colors can surely be a difficult job, as there are many other things you have to consider changing or matching. Therefore, make the right choice, and paint those cabinets in an expressive manner.
