In this kitchen remodel idea we have some really great knotty pine kitchen cabinets. In addition to these, we also have some retro looking appliances. The reason I think the knotty pine kitchen cabinets and appliances contrast so well is that they both give us a little vintage flavor, but for two different reasons. The knotted wood designs make the space feel more rustic, whereas the appliances feel like something out of the 1950’s. Combined together they really make for a unique design aesthetic. I also like the simple tiles floor, and like that the designer kept it neutral so as to showcase the cupboards and appliances.
