Accent Finishes Within a Kitchen

Our new "Weathered" finishes were introduced in September and already, beautiful kitchens and baths are being created with these unique looks!  Our new Weathered finishes are available in a variety of colors and have a uniquely textured surface that looks and feels like driftwood or weathered wood that has been reclaimed as furniture.

One popular way to introduce this intriguing finish into a kitchen design is to use it as an accent.  A Weathered finish makes a beautiful counterpoint on an island or hood within a crisp, white painted kitchen.  In the kitchen pictured below, our Weathered "E" finish on Cherry was selected for the hood, the island and the hutch, while Classic White Paint was selected for the rest of the kitchen. 

By using a Weathered Finish as an accent color within this kitchen, it creates a look of reclaimed wood or reclaimed furniture pieces that contrast with the crisp painted finish on the cabinetry.  Even the chrome on the light fixtures and the door & drawer hardware create a polished contrast to the rustic look of our Weathered finishes.
