Painted and dark stained cabinets have been trending for many years and we wanted to celebrate natural wood cabinets this month! Cabinets, in their natural state, with no paint or colored stain applied, are becoming popular again. They are a great choice for those looking to add a rustic touch to their space.
Our Shaker Cherry Natural cabinets look perfect in this Craftsman inspired home
At Cabinets.com, we offer our most popular door styles, Shaker I and Shaker II, in Natural Maple and Natural Cherry. Maple is a very light wood unstained; it is very gold in its tones. Maple also has very smooth and even grains. When left in its natural state, this beautiful graining is able to show. Other benefits of maple wood are its durability and affordability, making it one of the most popular woods used in cabinetry. Cherry wood, in its natural state, is a tad darker than maple wood and has much deeper red tones. Cherry also has slightly more variations with knots and pin holes showing up in the grains. Cherry has been used in cabinetry for hundreds of years due to his durability and strength.

From a design standpoint, natural wood cabinets allow for flexibility in choosing your surrounding finishes because there are plenty of complementary choices. Both the maple and cherry pair well with stainless steel appliances, as well as dark and light countertops. If you want to add a little variation in your kitchen, you could use the natural wood cabinets in conjunction with a painted cabinet. The painted finish paired with the warmth of the natural wood would make any kitchen cozy and inviting!
Trends come and go in kitchen design and there is no denying the beauty of wood in its unfinished, natural state. We believe that natural wood cabinets will contribute to being a popular choice for our customers and can't wait to see the results of their finished spaces!
