To project a more vintage feel, retro kitchen cabinets are typically complemented with retro furniture pieces, appliances and artworks. Replicas and memorabilia are also commonly showcased as part of the design. The French country kitchen style is one of the most ornate designs for kitchens. It falls under the traditional style, evoking as strong sense of elegance, sophistication, richness and luxury. In general, French country kitchen cabinets are characterized by distressed finishes, rich woods and warm colors.
Natural materials such as wood are the primary material for French style kitchen cabinets. To create a rustic character, these woods are often left in their natural, unfinished state, showcasing their distinct graining patterns. In some cases, the distressed, antique or weathered finish is also employed to create a more timeown, old word vibe. Rich, warm tones and deep colors are also more popularly used compared to light colors. If the cabinets are painted, they are typically finished in earth tones and cream or beige. Complementing color schemes for French country kitchen cabinets include warm tones like shades of brown, deep reds and mustard.
White beadboard cabinets are the easiest to use and style, because the white finish enables it to be more versatile – easily matching with both contemporary and classic interiors. Additionally, the white finish helps make it look lighter/less heavy, making it easier to apply on small kitchen spaces. A transitional/contemporary kitchen with an all-white color scheme makes use of white beadboard cabinets to add texture and help keep the design from being bland and too modern. Combined with the white carrara marble countertop and backsplash tiles, the result is a fresh-looking take on classic country style kitchens.
The cabinet hardware used for Mexican style kitchen cabinets have subtle touches of Mexican inspiration. Geometric details and leaf motifs may either be carved or embossed into metal cabinet pull and handles or in some cases hand painted over ceramic cabinet hardware. Mexican style kitchen cabinets are typically complemented with colorful handcrafted tiles with painted surfaces. Mexican inspired motifs with bold and bright colors of blue, greens, yellow and reds. Some other design elements which can be used to match Mexican style kitchen cabinets are white crackled trims, black granite countertops and honey golden accents. Mexican style kitchen cabinets may also be set against a warm colored wall to evoke a bright, cheery ambiance to a room. Terra cotta floors and natural stone flooring are also common options for complementing decor to Mexican style kitchen cabinets.
