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.
Fit the space. "Because of the size of this kitchen and the height of the ceiling, we needed a fixture that not only had the appropriate width, but also height", says Kristin Petro of Kristin Petro Interiors. "With its tiered design, a chandelier fits the space perfectly. In addition, the white cabinetry and backsplash provide a neutral backdrop, which lets the intricate style of the chandelier really pop".
White on white. This kitchen is in sync with the overall design of the house. "It's part of a new French‐inspired home on South River in Annapolis, Maryland", says Brad Creer of Bradford Design. "The wife wanted an all‐white house both inside and outside, including the furniture. The only other colors are the limited use in some of the accents. And the only nonwhite space in the home is the husband's large barroom, which has a dark wood finish".
