Contemporary kitchens have increasingly gained an unparalleled popularity in this modern era, thanks to their beautiful, refreshing look and user-friendly, functional designs. They are usually characterized by minimalist designs and the use of linear, geometric themes. This design style extends to the kitchen cabinets as well. Most of them feature the hallmark contemporary design styles, with their simplicity and sharp, tidy lines. As a matter of fact, the market is flooded with a vast range of contemporary, modern-day kitchen cabinets that sport different colors, designs, and finish. Thus, they add not only to the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen, but also place an emphasis on functionality.
There are many popular colors used to paint kitchen cabinets with. These are usually neutral shades so that they match with any type of kitchen furniture, like a wooden dining table. These colors can be gray, beige, cream, lemon yellow, wooden brown, steel gray, etc. There are other bright colors which are also very popular and are used on a large-scale, for example; blue, green, red, orange, mustard, pink, yellow, etc. Sometimes, the cabinets have glass doors so as to give them a showcase exterior. A stained glass on the doors of these cabinets would look perfectly classy for a modern kitchen.
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.
Some Interesting Ideas. As mentioned earlier, the following cabinet designs and ideas will be discussed on the basis of a theme. Keep in mind that, since you are following a particular theme, it should be applicable to your whole house and not just your kitchen. You don't want it to stick out like a sore thumb because of your desire to solely revamp your kitchen. The overall theme does not have to be blatantly prominent, but elements of a particular theme must be present all over your house for a better effect.
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.
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.
