How to Decorate Your Kitchen in Victorian Style

A kitchen decorated in Victorian style can be seen as one welcoming space in the home with all the warmth that can be conferred by the hardwood flooring and the cast-iron stove that spreads the joyful gleam of the playful flames. So, if you want to have a Victorian styled kitchen then keep on reading and see what you need.

First of all there is the need for the following: cast iron stove, ceramic tile, crown molding, silver trays and dishes, Victorian cabinet knobs, laced curtains white colored and white paint.

Then you should proceed into replacing conventional stove as nothing can compare to the Victorian style of a cast iron stove and you feel like you can convert them to be fueled with electrical energy.

Next you should consider replacing the old floor with hardwood flooring to be genuinely made in the Victorian style of a kitchen. The ceramic tiles with Victorian patterns can be as well a good alternative for hardwood installing.

As to the silver accents, you should be aware that Victorian style has always demanded silver as material for its decorative items. Therefore the presence of silver trays and cutlery is also a must in the Victorian styled kitchen.

Replace the existing knobs and handles of your cabinets with Victorian styled ones as it is cheaper this way, then the option to replace the cabinets themselves.

When it comes to the paint, you should take into account that bright colors have been always used for the Victorian styled kitchens to allow them look larger and more open. The cabinetry can be as well painted in bright colors to allow this space look more spacious.

For setting more of the Victorian style tone you can use the crown molding to the kitchen ceiling that will bring a touch of elegance and at the same time the well known sophistication related to the Victorian feel.
