Changing the Veneer: Veneer also decides the way your cabinets will look and damaged veneer which has lost the polish and shine looks old and boring even after cleaning if for hours. And hence, replacing old veneer with new one can help you give a new touch to the kitchen cabinets, there are various designs and colors available in the veneers that you can experiment with. For example, instead of single color, you can use two to three colors of veneers to get the desired effect to the kitchen cabinets. But again, remember to choose the veneers that will match your kitchen well and not look out of the place.
Another important factor that determines whether or not you should have them is the amount of natural light that your kitchen receives. If it is situated in a dark corner, having such furniture pieces is not such a great idea. If it is well-lit, then black in combination with a lighter color will allow for a great reflection of the natural light, and help you express your style with panache. Finally, the overall kitchen décor also determines their suitability. Create a theme by which you can easily accommodate that color in your cabinets, without making it too overpowering or out of place. The ones that define the modernity of design or a rustic theme can all be a great way of introducing this color in your favorite place.
An important element to consider in this overall theme is the flooring. Nothing speaks rustic more than the diamond tile pattern. 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.
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.
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.
