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 replacing you current kitchen cabinets would require too much work or cost, you van also consider applying beadboard cabinets on the kitchen island. That way it will serve as an accent piece for added detail in the kitchen. Placed in an open plan space, the kitchen island not only serves as an additional worktop and small dining space, but also as a “divider” between spaces. The use of beadboards on the counter face gives the kitchen island an added texture and pattern, emphasizing the separation of the areas without having to use partitions. The cool white palette used on the kitchen cabinets and counter help make this kitchen more flexible & easier to match with more modern furniture pieces.
