The Victorian period lasted from 1840 to 1900 and, as Parkland College notes, it was characterized by strong moral and religious beliefs, as well as incredibly elaborate and ornate clothing, art, architecture and interior design. Kitchens of the Victorian period were light, airy, and cheerful while being efficient and functional as well. If you want to give your kitchen a nostalgic, yet royal appeal, the Victorian style kitchens may be just what you are looking for. Consider the following ideas to decorate into Victorian style kitchens to help you get started.

How to Decorating Your Kitchen Into Classy Victorian Style Kitchens?

So, how to decorating your kitchen into classy Victorian style kitchens? Here are some ways for you.  First of all, consider about the color. The colors to use in Victorian style kitchens are mostly cream, mauve, and light blue. You can incorporate these colors into your kitchen in several ways. Paint the doors of your cabinets blue and trim them in white. You can accessorize the countertops with mauve. The countertops can be butchers block instead of a solid color. Complete the look of your kitchen with wrought iron accessories. Flowerpots at the back door, wrought iron coat hanger that stands in the corner to hang your apron and jacket can have a place in your kitchen decor. Place a shelf on the wall to display hurricane candleholders and candles.

Give a traditional kitchen grace and charm with window stencils. Stencil the windows with a Victorian-style lace pattern. Draw a lace pattern on a piece of stencil cardboard. Cut the pattern out and secure it with tape on a clean window. Using masking tape and brown paper to mask off a 20-inch area around the window. Take white enamel car paint and spray the window; wait for the paint to dry before removing the stencil. For the curtains, make your curtains or purchase them. You can take one of the three colors listed above; blue, cream, or mauve and trim it in ruffles. Wide ruffles are acceptable with the Victorian look. Tablecloths need to have the same design as the curtains so that everything matches and coordinates. Place lace around your tablecloth like you did the curtains.

Don’t forget the furniture that can complement the Victorian style kitchen look. The cabinets in a Victorian kitchen should not look built-in. Thy should look like furniture: a collection of cupboards, an odd style pantry and tables. Bottom cabinets should have legs, and their depths should vary from deep to shallow. The colors and finishes should complement one another, but three or more different ones can be used. Having natural wood or a light stain would be unusual in a Victorian kitchen; chestnut, elm, birch, dark cherry or oak are typical for an urban Victorian look. Wall cabinets can be used, or they can be replaced with open shelves or wall shelves. Victorian-style cabinet doors should be ornate, with raised panels and flat tops with applied moldings or beading. The Victorian-style countertops were typically zinc-plated steel, marble or wood; granite or manufactured stone would also work. Feel free to mix and match countertop material: have some marble, some wood and some stone. Make use of a tall table with a chopping block top in place of an island.

For the wall yet floor, walls can display your love for Victorian decor. Hang a wicker fan with a touch of flowers at the bottom. You can also add diamond shaped mirrors or square mirrors that are placed in a white frame. The kitchen floors should be done in cream color linoleum. This will allow you to accessorize with your other colors. Round braided rugs can be placed in front of the fireplace if you have one in your kitchen or at your stove. You can also place braided rugs in front of the refrigerator and sink. You want to provide comfort and style in your kitchen. The cream color flooring will make the room seem larger than it really is and it will make it look cleaner. It will also help to blend in all the colors that you have used in your kitchen decor. Finally, take these ideas to achieve the best result. Victorian style kitchens are classy, elegant and timeless. Decorating in the Victorian manner in your kitchen can be as posh as you please or strike a balance between the historically correct and modern tastes.

    It is a color combination. I actually the first, second and the fourth pictures in my filing drawer. This color combo also reminds me of a dress from Gucci spring 2011 collection. That luxurious brought out by combining a vibrant turquoise blue skirt with a golden sash. You are absolutely about this combo can with anything from contemporary to country. Despite of what considerate of decor you wanna with you home, this yellow pendant you picked is extremely to the eyes.

    I assign my scarves in one of those reusable cloth bags for wine (like a regular reusable catch divided into 6/compartments). I a couple of them for this actually… it works well and allows me to my scarves while keeping them contained. I stack the bags on their side on closet shelf for easy viewing, but I converse you could employ them upright, or however you want.

    Not loving the color and I it is planned obsolescence those that out and fabric, paint etc. because this is “the color” will probably be wondering what they were thinking this time next year. Those that truly the color probably already absorb a room with it in it. Also the chair legs painted that color the room unfinished paint the entire chair it would better. Entirely too * Brewster for me.

    Your is fair lovely. I can all the personal touches…I absolutely the birds on the wall (and Yoda on the radio!). The MCM works amazing with that * feel. And I will definitely be checking on the wall clock. Kyla @

    Well, bringing out, or nuking pre-prepped food from the grocery store, using a dishwasher, popping things in the washing machine, having the roomba vacuum for us . . . so we can sit on the sofa and TV . . . has certainly not helped our national waistline. The more energy/electricity our household appliances (and cars!) are using on a daily basis, the less we are. Its a simple physics equation. We the energy out of the ground (oil) and store it in our bodies (*). So busying ourselves around the house, and doing a bit more for ourselves, certainly helps tip the scale a bit.

    I strongly the before version. Only two suggestions for improving it:1. Straighten the picture2. Replace the white pillowcase, with a shade to creep with hues in the rest of the room.To my eye, in the AFTER picture, 1. The art work is out of scale (too large) The glass covering the art is distracting in the photo, I suspect it is in light too. And I assume the is hung to to the bed. Certainly would be a nuisance for a person myself who likes to prop up with pillows and read in bed.2. The bed linens distract from the color scheme.3. I really the matching chairs in Before. Stacked suitcases is so Ladies Journal decorating.But in both before and after, the wall covering and the metallic wall decorations extremely much. Lots of potential here.

    @soniaz, @Barry1 is joking. First of all, Chernobyl is in Ukraine. Second, the radiation is coming from *inside* the house. at the CRT monitor and the infrared home heater.Like the source article jokes, this guy is impartial a crooked and took the tin foil hat routine one step further.

    swapping your desk to the other side of the room, with the 4 X2 bookcase next to it, turned so that it is taller. Then a futon/daybed/ fold out sofa on the other side, and the 2×2 bookcase as an table. You can a lamp and attach it there to provide light for reading and extra warmthThe reason for this is to the most of your available space. Because of the door into the room, you less room on that wall.

    A lot of landlords include yard service in the rental price. It keeps neighbors happy, your tenants will be to not be responsible for it, and for these folks they can rest assured that their adore is taken care of.I knew a landscape designer who took her garden with her when they bought a current house across town. It was written into the sales contract that most of the perennials would be dug up and taken with them. She it was a PITA but totally worth it both for sentimental and financial reasons (she had thousands of dollars worth of rare and plants).

    So fun! I the colour & spirit of joy in some areas, and then the desirable collected where you need it (office nook, bedroom). When I read “open cabinets” I I would the begin clutter but yours – styling and yellow interiors. You really captured the spirit of fresh Orleans and made me want to visit again! Also, your is and I her name so much!

    I not know the criteria how the judges paired these apartments,but they acquire nothing in approved or similarity in decor. It is hard for me to this way.Also I know the rules of entry (since I entered the contest this year) but when professionals enter their apartment with professional photos and lighting, it seems unfair to be in the same category with them.Maybe there should be another contest for “Budget Apartment” contest to differentiate between the professionals in the field and the others.

    It is a cold tool, until you your house and then it becomes too intrusive. The English banned this car from entering their villages. Who wants anyone to know all the details of your house and then all the burglars devise the best to into your house. I the google air scheme is more than enough.

    Hey Lady J, thanks. I would not bear seen these because they arent in the bookcase and I am not where they stock these in the local store. Trying to figure out the dimensions. Will try to these in person cause I am always wary of laminate.Bluestar, I missed the first episode on Sunday and couldnt figure out when the exhibit repeats. Anyway I absorb seen the commercial and was suprised Lisa got kicked off so soon. She seemed to be creative. The with these shows is they kick off people with talent and the talentless troublemakers or whiny people cause “it makes tv”.Oh and to Flipping Out, I loved when they showed some clips from the season. And he was all “It has never been so dreadful for me” and you could he wanted to but he couldnt frown because of all the botox. Mwahahaha!

    We had one bathroom for our whole family of 5 to share, so a major rule was that we had to wash the bathtub after we it. Whoever was done with it (whether you were 6 or 16) had to Lysol it down and scrub away any visible gunk left behind.Towels were never left on the floor. They were either in (not around) the hamper, or hanging up neatly enough to dry for next use.Refilling the glass water pitcher (from the tap) in the fridge was a rule in our house. Under no circumstances was it ever to be seen empty.We always had to wipe our feet at the door on the outside mat and once again on the inside mat before we came in.Also, growing up in a family, we were allowed to talk anyway we wanted at (AAVE as some to call it), but it was absolute apt English grammar when out in public. This is my rule and will be strictly enforced when I my family 🙂

    @Preston I I would you posted on my project……..here is the short version….I was going to your advice and the foot plates and * them factual into the posts but I also want my Island to be on Castors…..and there is only one side of the post that either castor or the foot plate can * into….sooo I am at square one! Can you it? My only answer which I was trying to avoid because of money is to now a 3rd shelf and attach the wood top to the shelf with washers. arrrrggggghhhhhh!

    I the suggestions posted so far but if your niche seems cessation to either a corner or a larger peice of furniture (hard to from the photo) you may not want to attention to it by filling it up. I the of hanging a mirror and treating the niche as if it was another window in the room. You can the niche feel larger, smaller, or more centered in the room by how you hang panel drapes around it. Making it feel in proportion to the rest of the room is more distinguished than how you to decorate it.

    @RubyMae I did myself questioning whether the avg person in Morocco lives in this elegance (and wincing a bit at the thought), but I the beauty of this is not rivaled by the sprawling, blocky, and colorless spaces you might discover on House Hunters.

    I a dutch window that commence up extremely to the sidewalk. I wanted to the bottom half while leaving the top uncovered. I beautiful handmade rice paper from the art supply store and stuck it on with mod podge. I then applied a few coats of mod podge to seal it. Yes, this is a permanent but that is what I wanted.

    I this, job and 30k is an average brand for a kitchen remodel..I am wondering about the hardware specifically the drawer pulls on the lower cabinets. Not I saw a source mentioned on those? Thanks for sharing this remodel!!

    The birdcage is blooming with that wallpaper theme. However, afew months ago every Re-do was with the advice to not acquire overly busy “busy”.One wall in a dinky is fun for that diamond pattern. I was in a where the teen girls painted geometric color pattern in their room. thankfully the wall with windows and the wall with all the doors were solid color to your eyes down.I really hope for the sake of the guests the scallop wallpaper is only on one all. some feeling of texture is lovely. but a can along way.Wallpaper in general:I would leave a house showing before finishing looking at the house if there was wallpaper. All that scraping and…. to be done by me if we bought a house with wallpaper–No thank-you. My hint to those who they to wall paper. hold it to one wall to add some oomph if you must or a border thing. But someday you will want to sell.
