Vintage Kitchen Design: white cabinets and colored Moroccan tiles

For this vintage kitchen design project, we combined white cabinets together with colorful tiles, to mix the look of a white country kitchen and a Moroccan style tile floor.
It’s an eclectic design that shows all the personality and the unique taste of the home-owner. What appears chaotic at first, there is a perfect balance of white background and decorative elements.

The door style is a traditional overlay design that leaves some space between doors and drawers, providing that extra touch of vintage.
Though, the quartz countertop introduces the latest technology for the working surface.

Using a soft veined marble look top allowed us to choose a marble mosaic for the backsplash so that the veining in the two different materials don’t clash.

The kitchen includes extra features as pull out shelves, and a microwave tall cabinet. As an additional surface

For an additional country touch in this vintage kitchen design, the upper wall cabinets over the peninsula feature a detailed and decorative open shelf, bringing in that ornate last element that was just missing.

For the main backsplash areas we used a basketweave mosaic of Calacatta Gold and Ocean Grey marbles. Over the stove, the client personally selected the decorative tiles to use as an accent, so she could choose the exact colors that would be the main feature of the room.

The colorful floor design is a porcelain square tile that presents a large variety of colors and patterns, that is what gives this vintage kitchen its aesthetic quality and great taste.

Kitchens with brown cabinets and white backsplash

Kitchens with brown cabinets and white backsplash

Tired of the colors in your kitchen with brown cabinets? Using a white backplash is sometimes just the right thing to do. Though, choosing the right tone of white can be very difficult.

This transitional kitchen presents all the common elements of a partial remodel project.
We chose not to change the cabinets with new ones, and to only update countertop and backsplash to bring in that white element which will bring in all the light that was missing.

Choose what to implement in kitchens with brown cabinets

The kitchen has a very large working area, though it presents a deep and dark corner.
The application of a Glacier White marble subway tiles in a polished finish (glossy) as a white backsplash ensures the light to reflect on the walls and give back some of that light. This marble has a soft white background, with faint veins of very light grey and brown.

Also, the use of white quartz helps some of those lights bounce even more, making it so the new light is evenly sparse in all the areas of the kitchen. A kitchen with brown cabinets now is a kitchen with a white backsplash and white top.

Overall, stained wood cabinets are very timeless.
White and grey kitchens are clean and neutral, open, and light, but they don’t always match our home decor or our own personal style.

If your house presents a lot of wood elements, maybe brown or beige furniture, and it has several earthy tones in the general decor, you are probably safer with keeping your cabinets as is, if they are in good condition. So changing your walls and surfaces only makes it all easier!

If you are not thinking to change your cabinets, but you want to “spruce up” your kitchen, find a warm white backsplash that can combine cold and warm tones together, adding that fresh look you want to achieve.
