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.

Scrapping is also necessary to remove unwanted wood particles from your kitchen cabinets. However, if you have painted your kitchen cabinets recently, do not proceed with this process. Instead, remove all the drawers from your cabinets and clean and scrap them. Follow the same procedure for your kitchen cabinet pulls and knobs.

A black-and-white, diamond-checkered pattern on the floor will help you complete the look. Of course, you can always experiment with the flooring patterns, but this is one of the traditional looks that completes almost any room based on a rustic theme.

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.

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.
