The x moldings in the window replaced traditional style muntin bars. pinner wrote: I did this one afternoon by using moldings from Home Depot. I measured the length, asked the nice man to cut them for me, painted them, and stuck them in. They are tightly fit so they stay nicely. I did the same in my office that you can see to the right.
These days, design isn’t all-or-nothing. So if you’re torn between two finishes, pick both. Mixed natural wood tones, grains and finishes pair well with white or painted cabinets to add a modern touch to a traditional bend. All-wood lowers and white uppers help elongate a room, which can feel boxed-in or heavy with too many dark upper wood cabinets. Contrasting hardware, counters and wall colors will help marry a two-tone look.
