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.

Sometimes, they have to bear extreme dryness, when you set your oven at high temperature, whereas, the next moment they are left alone to fight moisture and humidity resulting out of steam from boiling vegetables. Rough handling and an exposure to variety of stains are other damages that we inflict upon our cabinets. Needless to say, your kitchen cabinets must be extremely sturdy to withstand all forms of abuse. Although your kitchen cabinet material may be strong enough and shows no signs of withering even after years of usage, the surface of the cabinets is most likely to fade and become unattractive. Painting kitchen cabinets is a great way of pepping up the appearance of your worn out kitchen cabinets. Oftentimes, you may give a fresh coat of paint to your cabinets just to change the look of your kitchen.

To make them look massive, you need to put on heavy crown molding. You also need to give special attention to the height. You can also have them reaching all the way to the height of your ceiling, while you get the walls behind the kitchen countertops with vertically-installed groove boards and simple tongues. You also need to give special attention to the knobs, handles, hinges, pulls, latches, covers, locks, and keys. All these factors must reflect the heightened sophistication of urban lifestyle, and hence, make sure they are made using materials, like cast iron, brass, or porcelain. Also, get bail pulls, ring pulls, or drop pulls; flush, butt, half mortise, barrel or offset hinges, etc., to get a kitchen design, which has a perfect Victorian feel.

Alternatively, wall sconces on either side of the mantel will both emphasize the fireplace and offer more lighting for the entire room. An up light situated behind the object can highlight pedestals, figurines or floor plants. Add additional layers with multi-tiered hanging lamps or wall/ceiling wash lights. Accent lights placed in alcoves, corners or closed in spaces will accentuate a specific area or piece and give the room a larger appearance.

Use smaller track lighting fixtures or other low-level lighting agents for computers and television viewing. This avoids glare and allows the screen its proper image display.
