Your Kitchen Antique Style
Antique style has distinctive features coming from ancient times. No matter it a fresh design of the kitchen or its authentic restoration, this style brings beauty and sense of age to your kitchen. What can be used to make interior of you kitchen look old and stylish at the same time? These are aged finishes and paints, antique-style lighting, hardwood floors, ceramic tile, faucets, kitchen cabinets, counter tops and other furniture featuring Antique style.
Interior designers often used old furniture, remodel it and thus give the kitchen a more authentic look. The fridge can be built in to a wooden surround to make it look like a piece of wooden furniture. Let us not forget that old chairs, chandeliers, dishes and artwork also can give the kitchen a certain sense of history.
It will be great to use stained, crackled, faux-painted or distressed cupboard styles. Using the term "stained", we do not mean stains in their traditional sense. We mean that a light layer of stain is applied on small sections of the cabinet and then rubbed away with a paper towel. In such a way, a faded, distinctive appearance is created. By the way, dark stains are perfect for it.
If you like crackled style more, lay down the coat of paint on the surface and let it dry. Then apply a crackling medium. After the crackling medium became dry, add one more coat. Be sure, your kitchen cabinets will look like your granny's cabinets at least. At least a few colors are necessary for the faux-painted style. Gentle and long strokes made on the kitchen cabinets will give them distressed look.
And finally distressing can help you to create Antique style. But it works only on the painted kitchen cabinets. You should sand off paint layers to reveal a few hints of wood. But do it gently. In fact, there are plenty of ways to make your kitchen look aged. May be you can propose us more interesting ideas.
