Glossy, uniformly painted cabinets can appear fresh, clean and modern. If you're trying to create a more French country look, distressed cabinets are a great place to start.

Grays can be cold on occasion, but distressing them so the wood peeks through warms them right up.
The midtone cherry cabinets match the furnishings in the two rooms. The tile backsplash is custom‐cut slate in two different colors that match the original brick in the dining room fireplace. The end result is a kitchen that feels contemporary when someone is looking into the family room and traditional when looking into the dining area.
