A Victorian style kitchen is a dream for most homemakers. The Victorian era refers to the time of the Victorian reign. This style was an utter display of charm and sophistication, that reflected through their clothing, etiquette, and houses. It is the reason why this style is still one of the most sought-after home decorating styles. However, those of you who are thinking of kitchen remodeling, can have cabinets of this style as a relic of that golden era. They provide you with a much desired feel of this beautiful décor. The following article will let you know more about the exciting features of such cabinets.
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.
Now, concentrate on the decoration. The decoration and molding of these cabinets should make them look heavy. This is the first rule. 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.
