A wise choice of proper color and varnishes is all that you need to age kitchen cabinets. Thus the solution to how to antique kitchen cabinet hardware, becomes pretty simple, without actually buying any antique cabinets and appliances. You simply need to make a few changes, which are definitely, very economical. Antique kitchen cabinets do not demand a lot. You do not need to make any changes to your kitchen cabinets, door knobs, or even the kitchen cabinet hinges. However, the look that you are planning to give to your kitchen, should compliment the appearance of the remaining house.
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.
There are a variety of colored appliances in kitchens, like the microwave, coffee maker, chimney, dishwasher, and cooking stove. If the appliances are white, it is easier to choose cabinet colors for the simple reason that there is already a uniformity in the kitchen, and all you have to do is find a common shade that will match all these appliances, and use it for the cabinets. A few colors which can be used are lemon green, yellow, teal, dark blue, red, orange, mustard, pink, purple, and wooden brown.
Today's kitchens are decorated with a great taste. Beautiful themes are implemented throughout the kitchen. There are several styles, patterns, and materials of cabinets to choose from. If you are confused about which style you should go for, you can opt for a combination of styles. Different styles blend well together, particularly in a large kitchen. You can get your cabinet from a home improvement store, or you can get it custom-made as per your taste. Custom designs allow you to implement innovative and unconventional styles.
The materials used in contemporary kitchen cabinetry range from stainless steel to glass. When wood is used, it is usually lightly grained like birch, ash, or maple, as they usually look well in simple designs. There are certain designers, developing lines of kitchen cabinetry that feature renewable materials, such as bamboo. This is not only environmentally friendly, but also has quite a pleasing aesthetic result. If you would rather avoid wood, then you can go in for metal kitchen cabinets. While stainless steel, with its mirror-like finish, continues to be a popular choice, metal kitchen cabinets that are made of copper, give a rather antique look to the kitchen. Not only are they aesthetically appealing, but are also resistant to corrosion and staining. Using thermofoil and melamine as your chosen material allows you to make a dramatic statement with a wide range of color options.
