Antique hardware kitchen cabinet design features details that come from an earlier period in history. Whether they are an authentic restoration or a new model, the unique character of this style brings a sense of age and beauty to a home. Old wood, aged paints and finishes on cabinets that are designed to look like old furniture are all ways to create this look.
Professional interior designers will often prefer an old piece of furniture and give it a new remodel in order to give the room a more authentic character. For example, in a kitchen the refrigerator and freezer can be built into a custom wood cabinet that looks like a traditional armoire. The lighting, faucets, cabinet handles and hardwood floors can all be coordinated to enhance the look of this antique home style.
