The Contemporary Theme, Contemporary kitchen designs are all about sleek lines and solid colors, with no room for unnecessary elements. There is no room for softness when it comes to its design. As such, you have to be careful while choosing the cabinets to suit this theme. Ensure that the ones you install should be sleek and flat, without any molding or the like.
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.
Kitchen cabinets are a piece of furniture that have to endure a lot of extreme temperature conditions. 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.
As mentioned earlier, they should not look inbuilt, as the concept of inbuilt kitchen cupboards was introduced recently during the 20th century. 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.
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.
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.
