The Return of the Wood Grain

The last decade of home and kitchen design was a steady stream of white-painted kitchens and muted grey tones.  Which look lovely, but living with can be a whole different story.

Lately, we are seeing a return to the authenticity of natural wood tones and wood textures dominating kitchen design.  It’s the resurgence of the wood grain!  Wood cabinetry adds a subtle texture and pleasing dimension to kitchen design.  And, today’s wood cabinetry has so many stain options to choose from, it’s a fit for every style.  A flat panel door in an Ebony stain is sleek and sophisticated, while a flat panel door with a narrow edge detail in a true brown can offer both Mid-Century Modern and Mountain Modern vibes, a light-stained Hickory door gives a nod to Scandinavian design.

 Whether it’s the wild variation of Hickory, the subtle contrast of Quarter Sawn Oak, or the deep dimensions of Walnut, classic wood cabinetry is anything but boring.
