You can add a casual, somewhat rustic look to your kitchen design with distressed kitchen cabinets. This “laid-back-chic” approach is easy to do yourself, or in many cases you can even order your kitchen cabinets pre-distressed.

There are many ways you can achieve a distressed look for your cabinets, depending on how “distressed” you want them to come across. If you simply want your cabinets to lose the brand-new look, try creating something that’s just a little worn around the edges through well-placed layers of paint, followed by strategic sanding in places that would naturally be rubbed and worn over time, and then finished off with a protective seal at the end. This is especially effective with black cabinets.

Scuff the edges, corners and grooves in the molding of the cabinets with a sanding block, wearing the paint away and darkening the edges. Further distress the cabinets by chiseling off small pieces of the corners, denting the wood in some places with a hammer or hitting the cabinets with steel chains. Excessive distressing does not work on veneer cabinets and should only be used with well-made wood cabinets. Unlike sanding, this type of distressing is permanent, so be sure it’s really the look that you want.
