Simple Shaker-style cabinetry lets color do the talking in this kitchen. Colored stains rubbed into the wood allow the grain to show through; the surfaces have more texture and depth than painted cabinetry would. The addition of an overall glaze tones down the color to further compliment the simplicity of Shaker style. The island's creamy finish matches the old-world styled cast-iron range (not shown), while the soft blue-green cabinets mix in colorful interest, resulting in a crisp, clean feeling with the warmth of wood.
Cabinets accented with classic molding and furniture-style details lend timeless traditional style to this elegant kitchen. A dark glaze layered over the creamy white perimeter cabinets conveys a sense of formality by enhancing the cabinetry's fine fluting, shapely legs, and intricate crown molding.
You can have the best of both traditional and contemporary style with cabinetry based on Shaker-style construction. Recessed panels inside flat-face frames boast traditional and contemporary characteristics. These cheery white cabinets set against subway tile backsplashes and fluted glass doors capture a vintage flavor, while brushed-nickel rod pulls and handles complimenting stainless-steel appliances push the look toward contemporary.
