A popular painting technique used to refurbish antique furnishings would be antique washing, also known as distressing. This technique are usually used on vintage pieces, giving it a more casual, rustic feel, while accentuating the classic features and natural imperfections of the piece. This old English style kitchen has well preserved Oak kitchen cabinets, but since the space is already full of wood finishes (both floor and ceiling has wood), antique washing the kitchen island was a great refurbishing decision as it helps break the heavy monotony of wood on wood.
If you’ve ever seen a professional kitchen, you’ll notice that every surface possible is made of stainless steel. Even hospitals use stainless steel cabinets since they are so resistant to bacteria and other unhygienic contaminants.
Hunter green is dark neutral green shade with a slightly mysterious vibe. It is subtle enough to blend in with any existing cabinet colors, but also bring in enough personality to set your kitchen apart from the rest. Hunter green would be perfect to use on accent cabinets on country-style kitchens like the example above. The use of Olive green paint on the kitchen cabinets of this French provincial style kitchen helps break the dull, flat look of all-white kitchens, while maintaining the versatile subtlety of white.
Vintage kitchen appliances already have busy detailing and attention-grabbing colors, so the beadboard kitchen cabinets were kept subtle and low-key, by using a plain white paint finish. Sometimes, even subtle contrasts is enough to create a kitchen design which has more depth and texture. Because the walls of the space/interiors already uses a white finish, the beadboard kitchen cabinets uses a different white undertone to give it a little more contrast against the flat white walls.
