Pick your paint colors next to the other materials, including pulling back a section of the protective floor covering to get a good sense of how the colors work with the new stain color.
If you're a cook, you know that kitchen messes are bound to happen. Grease and oil splatters and flour sprays often end up on cabinets and counters. Distressed cabinets not only hide those little messes well but also are super easy to wipe down. No matter what you choose for the rest of the home, it's so important for the kitchen to feel relaxed and inviting; it is the heart of the home, after all. Even in a more upscale design scheme, distressed cabinets lend a casual air that can't help but be welcoming.
While distressed cabinets have a look all their own to begin with, pulls help define the style. A sleek bar pull adds a modern element, a dark pull creates contrast and a similarly distressed knob blends in, allowing the detail in the cabinets to shine.
