A Victorian kitchen decorating style is a pretty combination of gracefulness and sturdiness, which is thought to be strange by many people. A Victorian style kitchen is a dream for most homemakers. The Victorian era refers to the time of the Victorian reign. This style was an utter display of charm and sophistication, that reflected through their clothing, etiquette, and houses. It is the reason why this style is still one of the most sought-after home decorating styles. However, those of you who are thinking of kitchen remodeling, can have cabinets of this style as a relic of that golden era. Victorian kitchen cabinets typically reflect the architectural style of the home or the furniture within it.
Cabinets in the Victorian era were often freestanding, with ball and claw feet on worktables or the kitchen island in the center of the room. You may even find feet on the lower cabinetry set against the wall. Decorative corbels often supported wall-mounted cabinetry when it was used, as in the butler’s pantry or above the wet sink. Many cabinets included inlay moldings, rosettes and leaves, scrolls or flower carvings. Look inside drawers for dovetailed joints and glass, brass or nickel knobs and hardware.
