I'm in love with a white kitchen that has a pewter glaze. So much so, that we are building our "dream" kitchen based on the photos that we found here on houzz. Would you mind giving me your opinion on something, please?
Our cabinet maker does not want to glaze the white cabinets, instead he would like to hand paint a pewter line in the raised panel portion of the door. On first look, it's very pretty. After several hours, I think it looks too perfect, sort of defeating the point of the glaze. I'm afraid an entire kitchen with such perfect lines will ultimately look "busy".
I'm not sure why they wouldn't show me a glazed sample. He claims that glazing would change the color of the crisp white. (I understand that, and I think that is the point!) But hand painting a line doesn't seem like the right solution to me.
A kitchen is an investment, and I don't want to live with something I don't love. I don't know who else to ask....thank you so much for your thoughts on this...
