31 Ways To Use Vintage Cupboards And Armoires
Incorporating vintage items into modern spaces has become a huge trend, if earlier we saw such pieces mostly in vintage and shabby chic rooms, now you may enjoy them in modern, contemporary and many other interiors where they create a statement and make it bolder and contrasting. The most popular piece here is a chair, though you may also see sofas, loveseats, tables, desks and other items, and I’d like to share some ideas on using a vintage cupboard or armoire to make your interior striking.
A vintage cupboard can be used for storing anything that comes to your mind, not only dishes or porcelain, it can emphasize the beauty of anything you put inside, of various small stuff and even separate the spaces if you have an open layout. A cupboard can be large or small, with doors and without them, occupy the corner of the kitchen or become a focal point in the living-dining room.
Vintage cupboards look amazing in neutrals and off-whites, these are natural colors for them. If you want some shade, opt for very light pastels like green or blue, and to make the dinnerware look more awesome paint the inside with some dark shade – such an idea will create a chic contrast. Stained pieces are also welcome but I’d say they aren’t so eye-catchy and add mostly a rustic feel, not a refined vintage one.

Decorate your cupboard with printed fabric or wallpaper – just attach it as lining inside to make your cupboard more eye-catching. The pattern shouldn’t be too small or too large scale, it should be seen clearly yet it shouldn’t distract attention from the dishes and cups or some other pretty stuff that you are displaying. If you don’t like the shop window feel of the cupboard with glass, take it out and substitute it with chicken wire. This idea came from French interiors, and many designers and decorators are already using it. Chicken wire will make your cupboard more airy and will give it a rustic feel. Don’t forget that thickness of your chicken wire should correspond the look of your cupboard.
