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.

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.

Not only is it stunningly attractive and amazingly easy to keep clean, it is also possible to order it in custom colors. You can have it installed in large or small sections, to create a seamless appearance. A great idea is to combine the materials to achieve the custom design, which has led to contemporary cabinets that increasingly use a combination of stainless steel with glass, chrome with slate, or high sheen paint, with totally modern plastics.

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.

If possible, get movable cupboards. If it's a base cabinet, then it should have turned legs. The décor in question is an assortment of stained and painted finishes. As long as the colors are complementing each other, you can use a combination of even three to four colors. Along with colors, they must also bear different depths and heights. Some should be deep, while some should be shallow. If you are aiming for wall shelves, then you can opt for the open style. Now, we come to the material to be used. Well, most of the rich, stained, and dark types of wood, like oak, birch, chestnut, cherry, elm, etc., are suitable materials for the typical urban cupboards. Light-stained materials would mess up the mood of your kitchen.

They look organized and neat, and provide ample space for storing utensils, cutlery, and food items. As a part of interior designing, kitchen cabinet colors are also an important part of home decor. Hence, when you are deciding on the wall colors of your kitchen, you have to keep in mind the color scheme of the furniture as well. Along with the usual cabinets with wooden finish, you can also go for modern painted cabinets, as they look very stylish and different. Take a look at some more interesting ideas mentioned below.

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.

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.
Manuela Marsh Kitchen, 2018-06-24 08:09:47. 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.
