chunky molding cabinetry

Last year, I shared a kitchen decorated for the holidays with you (here), and people really seemed to love it!

I thought it would be fun today to share a completely different kitchen with you that is ready for Christmas.  

This Canadian kitchen was featured at Bright Bold & Beautiful.


Everything about this kitchen says high-end, from the gorgeous custom cabinetry to the carrerea marble countertops and the lovely fresh florals.  

The black cabinetry is a bold choice that works really well in this light-filled room.


I’ve looked around the web to find a few do-it-yourself tutorials that will help you achieve a look similar to this elegant kitchen.  



1. Extended Molding on Cabinets


Substantial molding is a hallmark of expensive custom cabinetry.  

Fool the eye and save some pennies by adding chunky molding to stock cabinets.  

The Lettered Cottage has a detailed tutorial.

2. Hidden Chandelier Chains


Want to add a luxe look to your kitchen lighting? It’s possible to find chandeliers in thrift shops or Craigslist, but sometimes the old chains can be unsightly.

Rachel’s Nest has instructions so that you can make your own cover in any fabric you choose.

3. Festive Range Hood Swag


The full garland over the range hood in my inspiration kitchen brings such a festive touch to the room.  

I love that this overhead decor keeps the counters free of clutter.

Pretty Handy Girl shows you how to make a garland of your own–for free!

4. Dark Painted Cabinetry


The black cabinets in my inspiration photo are so elegant, and they make a gorgeous background for the festive greenery!  

If you love, these, then I highly recommend reading about how The Inspired Room transformed a kitchen with painted cabinetry.

5. Marble Countertops


There’s no question that marble is a beautiful surface for countertops–but it is also expensive and high maintenance.  

Check out how you can achieve the look of marble for a much lower price tag in this tutorial for faux marble countertops by Batchelor’s Way at Remodelaholic.

I hope that this December you are enjoying your kitchen – no matter what color the cabinets are – as you bake cookies and whip up party foods for your holiday festivities.

What’s your favorite holiday recipe?
