Colors and Finishes. Staining and painting are two common finishes for kitchen cabinets. Staining allows the grains of the wood to show through, while painting covers the surface and provides a smooth appearance without variation. Anyone seeking a traditional effect might choose stained doors instead of painted ones. Painted cupboards offer virtually limitless options to match any hue and any decor. Other decorative finishes include glazing the paint or distressing it.
Wild Bird Window Clings. Stained glass windows and window panes can be quite costly, but it is possible to enjoy the beauty of stained glass in the kitchen without the expense of real stained glass. When decorating a kitchen in a bird theme, search for hand-painted window clings. They are available in all varieties, and chances are you will find your favorite backyard birds in the form of high-quality window clings that will adhere to windows until you are ready to take them off. Just like high-quality stained glass, they will let the light shine in, but they will beautifully decorate kitchen windows while providing an extra measure of privacy.
Let There be Light: If the room feels small, see what you can do to increase natural light and make better use of artificial light. In other words, layer your lighting. For instance, cabinet-top lights that point to the ceiling can create a nice ambiance and make the ceiling feel higher. Light colors in the floor, cabinets, or countertops can also create a sense of space. Mirrored back splashes will reflect light and glass-fronted cabinets can also make the room look more spacious.
Last but by no means least; involve yourself in the process from start to finish. If you're passionate about how you want your kitchen to look then make sure you stay on top of the design process right through to the fitting. Designers and builders will take liberties and make key decisions if you don't make yourself clear. Stay involved with the project and see it through to the finish. You'll be rewarded with a stunning modern kitchen.
