Distinct finishes and details are necessary to send new cabinetry back in time. Here, the cabinets needed to compliment the rugged wood and sturdy stone architecture that transformed this new-construction kitchen into a vintage country French retreat. The classic country French color - blue - was the starting point, distressed and washed down to a faded tint that suggests the passage of time. Heavy scrolled hardware and prominent old-world hinges add authenticity. A modest and rugged farmhouse-style table sits in lieu of a modern cabinetry-constructed island.
If you’re planning on mixing and matching in this way, remember that design inspiration is the key to success. Use your intended design style as a starting point and then use sites like Freshome to determine which materials are most commonly used together in that aesthetic. That way, you can be sure that your final product will exceed expectations.
Cabinets with simple beaded molding around a flat inset panel are nearly style-neutral ¿ the finish and the hardware can push them toward almost any look you choose. Here bin-style drawer pulls and visible door latches, mixed with charming glass knobs, nudge the kitchen toward a nostalgic, vintage look that¿s underscored by deep cove molding at the ceiling and decorative supports below the upper cabinets. Furniture-style bun feet on the island and antique ironstone displayed behind glass-panel cabinet doors further accentuate the vintage touch.
When flooring and walls are irregular, even new cupboards won't sit against them. Adjust the legs which go under most modular chimney so every cupboard can sit securely on the ground. For different alterations, make sure tops, sides, and bottoms are level and fitted as you can.
