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.
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.
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.
When you are thinking of redecorating your home to give it an entirely different look, it is a great idea to change everything. If you like bright colors, you can definitely choose them, but only if your interiors complement it. There are millions of shades for cabinet colors, which are hardly ever used, but look great nonetheless. Apart from the usual reds, blues, and greens, trying a mixture of colors could change the look of your kitchen in a unique way.
Art Pieces: Another way to remodel the kitchen cabinets is by decorating it with various art pieces. If you would visit the local home improvement store you will find many things that help you can use to embellish the kitchen cabinets quite differently. You can paint the cabinets in an artistic manner to get a unique look. You can also use metal art pieces that just need to be paste or fix on to the original cabinet exterior which is sure to change its appearance drastically. You can also install the mirrors on the cabinets for a distinguished look.
