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.
For the best look, don't combine these pieces of furniture with any other color, or they will take away the attention from the distressed furniture pattern you have tried to create. With their well-defined molding and similar elements, they are the most suitable choice for this theme. Use warm colors such as the rich, golden-yellow backdrop or even kitchen countertops in this color, against which the cabinets will stand out, to create a comfortable, cozy combination while working around this theme.
Most people pay a lot of attention to the designing of kitchens, since they typically turn out to become family rooms where everyone gathers for meals. Designing a kitchen comes with the responsibility of planning its layout, and also figuring out the positioning of the refrigerator, microwave, and other such kitchenware along with the placement of the cabinets. In order to ensure proper placement, you need to know the dimensions of kitchen cabinets. Mostly, these cabinets have standard dimensions, as manufactured by companies. You may need to alter them depending on your individual needs, however, it can be more expensive, and also time-consuming. Once you know the standard dimensions, you can design your kitchen accordingly, saving the time and money that goes into customizing the cabinets.
White kitchen cabinets make the kitchen look bright and opened up. However, too much of white color in your kitchen can make it look sterile and hospital-like. Going with a light monochromatic color scheme is a good idea if you have a small kitchen design. Still, no matter what the size of kitchen is, one needs to add some elements in the kitchen, that give a hint of color. To balance out or complement the white kitchen cabinets, use these kitchen ideas.
Chalkboard: This is an interesting way to remodel the kitchen cabinets, especially if you have kids at home. Having a chalkboard is like installing the chalkboard on the exteriors of the cabinets like the way you would have veneer. You can use this chalkboard creatively on a daily basis. First of all, of course you can sketch or make a picture on it using colorful chalks or you can also use it as a menu sheet or use it write recipes.
