Vintage Treasures Lead a Kitchen Makeover
A Mix of Styles
The kitchen in this renovated farmhouse utilizes a mix of vintage and modern pieces to form a very personal style. The kitchen was designed around the antique table-turned-island. As the only all-black piece in the kitchen, the black island is even more of a focal point.
This refurbished table inspired the full-kitchen remodel. With barley-twist legs and carved drawers the rustic table is the room's centerpiece. The piece was revamped with an oversize wooden top and a coat of black paint. It now doubles as a prep center and seating area.
A wall of open shelving paired with a vintage French cabinet creates an eclectic combination in the kitchen. The French cabinet with the farmhouse style was another source of inspiration in the room's design. Large in scale, the piece adds character and tons of storage to the room.
The open shelves work to add interest to otherwise plain walls. Simple metal brackets hold up the shelves, which showcase china pieces in a combination of colors.
A concrete sink and pullout faucet are simple, industrial elements that add contemporary style to the kitchen. Matte-black slate tiles form the countertop. Using tiles instead of an entire slate slab saves a great deal of money when remodeling a kitchen on a budget.
Custom cabinetry was designed with an ultra modern sensibility. Drawers, door handles, and knobs are all made of painted wood to simplify the cabinetry and allow the focus to be on the room's fabulous details and vintage finds.
The range wall is covered in glass mosaic tiles that shine and sparkle against the rooms' neutral paint and dark countertops. The matte finish on the vent hood adds contrast against the tiled wall.
Ridged glass in the upper cabinets gives them a modern twist. The glass on the plain cabinets creates an optical illusion and adds additional interest on the wall.
