Anyone who has designed a kitchen knows that painting cabinets is not easy. Therefore, choosing the color of the cabinet requires careful consideration. Instead of following the latest interior design trends, the choice should be based on a look that will last.
Fortunately, when it comes to kitchen cabinet colors, we don’t have to guess. said Martha Stewart, the definitive expert on all things home Houses and gardens Her final kitchen cabinet color. Since Martha’s a big fan of time-saving hacks (as evidenced by her recent “Don’t Do It Yourself” campaign with Pure Leaf Tea), we know this color was chosen to last.
Martha Stewart said H&G From her farm in Bedford, New York: ‘I designed my kitchen 20 years ago. I bought an old farmhouse and renovated the kitchen, and it looks brand new. It looks like it was made yesterday. That’s how beautiful and well-made it is.’
“The cabinets are done with gray frames, beautiful Bedford grey, as I call it,” she continued. The buildings are all painted the same gray, and the panels in the cabinets, the flat-panel cabinets, sort of American Shaker style, are beautiful tiger maple. And it looks beautiful in the gray closet.’ The cozy aesthetic of the cabinets creates the perfect environment for cooking, socializing, relaxing, or in Martha’s case, enjoying a cup of her favorite Pure Leaf Iced Tea.
Aside from choosing a gray kitchen, Martha recommends simple hardware for timeless cabinetry. Martha Stewart loves small, pretty appliances. I told Houses and gardens‘I love the small, efficient pull-out handles so nothing gets stuck on the cabinets.’ My drawers have little handles.’ Not only will small appliances make your life easier, but the look will never get old. The look is completely resistant to interior design trends.
Martha is also a fan of smooth cabinetry, rather than falling for the trends of textured kitchen cabinets. “Everything in my kitchen is uniform,” Martha said. “So if you have a spill on the counter, it’s not going to get into the drawers and stick to all the molds and fancy stuff. It’s elegant yet simple.”
