A Victorian style kitchen is a dream for most homemakers. The Victorian era refers to the time of the Victorian reign. This style was an utter display of charm and sophistication, that reflected through their clothing, etiquette, and houses. It is the reason why this style is still one of the most sought-after home decorating styles. However, those of you who are thinking of kitchen remodeling, can have cabinets of this style as a relic of that golden era. They provide you with a much desired feel of this beautiful décor. The following article will let you know more about the exciting features of such cabinets.
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.
Kitchen backsplash provides good visual effects on walls which are of a light shade. You can also have a small backsplash behind the kitchen sink. It can be a simple tiled pattern or a little mosaic. Take a look at the four pictures above to get a better idea on how to match the flooring and backsplash with white kitchen cabinets.
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.
