Affordable Ideas to Decorate a French Kitchen by Julian Sahagun

If you love luxurious kitchen designs with high-tech appliances and high-quality materials, the French style can be your best choice. In this article, Julian Sahagun of Keystone Cabinetry will share you his professional ideas to decorate your rustic French, French country, or classic French kitchen.

The splendid French kitchen designs range from the luxurious and state of art to the tiny space. In French regency at Holmby Hills, Julian Sahagun and his team design a luxurious kitchen with walk-in refrigerator and freezer, four stainless steel ovens, a large kitchen island, a limestone fireplace, ornamented moldings, and heavily carved cabinet doors. In a smaller French oak kitchen with a Mediterranean touch, Julian Sahagun uses rich colors such as dark red and light brown along with white accents and glossy wooden floor to create a dramatic and luxurious look.

Most of the French kitchen decorative elements are timeless, elegant, and functional. You can simply provide your kitchen an alluring French touch using a marble topped island, an ornate chandelier, upholstered ottomans, warm gold painted chairs, oval or scroll shaped chairs, or pendant lamps with stain shades.

Along with such decorative elements, Julian Sahagun recommends a warm type of flooring such as terracotta, poured concrete, faux concrete, hardwood, and checkerboard tiles. Instead, you can create an authentic French touch in your kitchen using blue and white accents, cabinets with delicate swirls and scrolls, or oval shaped furniture. Sahagun applies these ideas in a Beverly Hills kitchen using cabinets with caramel antique glazed finish, hand carved ornaments and crown molding, and wire mesh accents to create an authentic French look.

If you have an existing classic or even contemporary kitchen, the French slight touch will provide the place a unique depth. Sahagun creates such an eclectic look in several kitchen using espresso glossy cabinets with an ornamented French island with French window treatments and leather chairs.
