Kitchens are one of the smallest, but most challenging rooms to decorate. It is mostly because kitchens require us to balance between practical and beautiful, since we spend a lot of time there and we use them for some of our most important daily activities. So how can you bring style and function together?
Post war style or the 1950’s American style is also another inspiration for retro inspired kitchens. This style generally evokes a futuristic, space age vibe. Translated into cabinet designs, this features prominent curves and sharp angles. Finishes for post war retro kitchen cabinets are more bold in color. Bright reds, blues and greens in high gloss finish are also prevalently used. This kitchen cabinet style is also typically accentuated with shiny, over sized chrome handles.
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.
Best of all, cream is a great color that catches the sun, especially when placed by a large window or door. It immediately brightens up the home, even when dark colors or finishes are placed next to it. It’s also a great option for starter homes and kitchens that are still a “work in progress”, because its neutrality welcomes newer designs or bolder colors, instead of alienating them and not allowing the kitchen more room to grow in terms of accessorizing.
