The Traditional Theme, A lot of us refuse to succumb to the ever-changing trends in the world of design and wish to stick to the confines of traditional design that we believe defines our personal style. Black is so versatile a color that it can be molded into any design and any theme. As such, incorporate such antique cabinets into your traditional kitchen design. These are actually similar to the ones that have been mentioned in the rustic theme, minus the distressed look. The unique motifs that adorn them, along with the molding and traditional handles, all speak for themselves when used. Use marble, instead of granite, for the ultimate traditional appeal. Incorporate yellow lights and not the contemporary white ones for a warm feel. Combine these cabinets with redwood flooring and some unique colors, and create a unique combination of a traditional-yet-rustic appearance.

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.

Apply a base color to your cabinets first and then apply a layer of tinted painter's wax. You can now apply another layer of color to the same surface and cover it with another layer of tinted painter's wax. Finally apply the crackling paint over the surface. After this final layer of paint dries, simply brush the surface using a sandpaper to remove any irregularities in the surface.

Angelica Massey Kitchen, 2018-07-03 23:04:29. 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.

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.
