Mission Style Kitchen Renovations
Mission design home furnishings is a design of furniture that originated in the late 19th Century. It traces its origins to a seat made by A.J. Forbes around 1894 for San Francisco’s Swedenborgian Church. Though the design of most Mission Style furniture owed little to the original furnishings of these missions, the Spanish missions are referenced by the word mission throughout colonial California. The style was popularly associated with the American Arts and Crafts movement.
Mission style is a layout that accentuates simple horizontal and perpendicular lines and flat panels that accentuate the grain of the wood (frequently oak, particularly quartersawn oak). Folks were looking for help after the excesses of Victorian times and the inflow of mass produced furniture from the Industrial Revolution.
Mission style kitchen cabinets feature a distinctive appearance that began in the United States around the turn of the 20th century. It instantly became a popular design for cabinetmakers too while mission style began with furniture.
Mission style strongly influenced another popular design aesthetic seen in kitchen called the Arts and Crafts movement, although it also combines other fashions found in Spanish and American Southwest regions as well.
Mission style layout is defined by straight lines and panel-faced doors with little or no adornment. The most common material used in mission style kitchen cabinets is oak, particularly American white oak. Occasionally cherry can be used as nicely as this is considered a more elegant and durable wood. Mission style kitchen cabinets are typically made by skilled carpenters because of their unique building, which results in a more durable, dependable and long-lasting group of cupboards. Due to this emphasis on custom made cabinetry, creating a mission-style kitchen layout can be costly. Both the price of the wood and expense of the job decrease the chance of creating a budget-friendly mission-style kitchen; yet, the aesthetic and permanent results may very well be worth the extra expense.
With regards to color, mission style cabinets tend to be left in their natural wood state rather than being painted. Often the wood is left in a warm honey color, although homeowners may choose to stain the wood cabinets to bring out a stronger colour. Decorative hardware is often black, using materials for example bronze alloy, rubbed brass or wrought iron.
Along with the identifying mission style kitchen cabinets, homeowners can add various adornments to their kitchen to create an actual mission-style kitchen. Identifying light fixtures with stained glass and amber tones can be added. Used as pendant lighting over a kitchen island or in the form of a lamp set on the kitchen counter, these light fixtures can provide a heat and glow to your kitchen that make it a truly inviting room, reflecting the distinctive mission style. Generally seen in accurate mission-style kitchens are built in storage benches or breakfast nooks featuring the same wood as used in the cabinetry.
No matter the size of your kitchen, if you’re trying to find a warm and cozy historical look with quality wood cabinetry, mission style might just be the fashion for you.
