When creating your dream kitchen, it can be tempting to stock up on shiny tiles and stylish marble slabs. But in your quest for striking materials, be sure not to neglect one of the most beautiful and classic materials around: wood.
Wood looks good in almost any home, and it’s a natural addition to the kitchen where it can become shelves, cabinets, countertops and more. Because wood can take on so many different colors and textures (depending on the stain you choose), there is no unique way to decorate with the material. Instead, there are lots of different approaches to the wood-filled kitchen. And all of them are – as you might expect – incredibly striking.
To help you make sense of the full range of wood-filled kitchen inspo out there, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite wooden kitchens—and we’ve cited a design idea worth stealing from each of them.
