The Rustic Theme, Though this theme centers more around wooden colors and elements, there are ways in which you can incorporate black in the scheme of your kitchen design. One of the best ways to do so is by installing distressed cabinets that will not look too modern and, in fact, fit in perfectly with your overall design.
Although kitchen cabinets are the focal point of beauty, they still have to be functional enough to house all the essential utensils, dinnerware, pots, and pans. Contemporary kitchens use the universal design principles that focus on flexibility, intuitive use, accident prevention, and minimizing fatigue. The cabinets are easier to access, with pullout shelves, sliding drawers, and spinning 'lazy susans'. The cabinets and the drawer pulls have large stainless steel bars and usually have either no handles, or just have simplistic metallic pulls. These allow for an easy clean up and a durable functioning of your kitchen. An important focus of contemporary kitchens are the natural and other lightings, which are usually used in more numbers and are adjustable, like track lighting. Installing lights under the kitchen not only ensures increased visibility during food preparation, but also highlights the stunning details of your new contemporary kitchen cabinets and the designed interiors.
If your kitchen hardware primarily consists of wood work, then scrap the wood using a sandpaper to remove any stains on your hardware. Scrapping is also necessary to remove unwanted wood particles from your kitchen cabinets. However, if you have painted your kitchen cabinets recently, do not proceed with this process. Instead, remove all the drawers from your cabinets and clean and scrap them. Follow the same procedure for your kitchen cabinet pulls and knobs.
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.
Increasingly, glass has also come into its own as the material of choice for kitchen cabinetry. 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.
Most people pay a lot of attention to the designing of kitchens, since they typically turn out to become family rooms where everyone gathers for meals. Designing a kitchen comes with the responsibility of planning its layout, and also figuring out the positioning of the refrigerator, microwave, and other such kitchenware along with the placement of the cabinets. In order to ensure proper placement, you need to know the dimensions of kitchen cabinets. Mostly, these cabinets have standard dimensions, as manufactured by companies. You may need to alter them depending on your individual needs, however, it can be more expensive, and also time-consuming. Once you know the standard dimensions, you can design your kitchen accordingly, saving the time and money that goes into customizing the cabinets.
