While we love all things modern, not everything has to be bright and shiny to make an appearance on our Pinterest boards. In fact, our latest obsession isn't new at all — or at least it doesn't appear that way. We're talking about distressed kitchen cabinets. And when it comes to these beauties, the word "perfect" isn't in our vocabulary.
Hungry for more? Scroll on for six kitchens that are guaranteed to satisfy your cravings.
1. Repurpose materials.
2. Consider subway tile.
The idea of preparing hearty ribollita in a setting that evokes visions of a Tuscan villa is pretty darn tempting. So pull inspiration from this kitchen captured by photographer Paul Massey, with distressed kitchen cabinets and open shelving. White subway tile and a gourmet stove offset the more rustic elements.
3. Mix different styles.
4. Choose a muted color palette.
In this kitchen designed by Lindsay Chambers, a distressed finish gives gray cabinets tons of character. Gourmet appliances and a herringbone mosaic tile backsplash infuse contemporary flair, while wood and steel counter stools add a rustic contrast. And, the dark hardwood flooring is a superb choice.
