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.
If you have existing beadboard kitchen cabinets and drawers, you can always freshen them up by re-sanding the wood and refinishing it with either stain/varnish or even paint. In this example, a light wash of mint green color in antiqued finish was applied all over the cabinets to give the kitchen a rustic look. Modern beadboard-textured panels can now be bought in hardware stores. Some of them ship raw or primed beforehand, but some also ship already finished in a particular color. This example has a very unique combination of white cabinet carcass and gray beadboard accent center, helping add depth and body to the design.
They are already there, so why not keeping them stocked most of the time? In case you have to take down the items you’re using on regular basis, consider rarely used items as substitutes.
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.
