We just designed a kitchen with stained wood base cabinets and white wall cabinets. My clients favored the look of a craftsman-style wood kitchen, but were concerned about light preservation- they didn’t want the room to feel too heavy and dark. I suggested open shelves or white cabinets and they chose the latter. We are also doing lighter countertops and backsplash to keep the kitchen clean and crisp. I can’t wait to see this one come to life!
I’m a big fan of this look. Wood base cabinets bring a nice organic look to the kitchen plus they are super kid friendly. (Stained wood takes dings and beatings better than white cabinets.) The white on top feels fresh, open and stylish. It’s the best of both worlds. As I always say- You don’t match your shirts to your pants, so why match your walls cabinets to your base cabinets. Think outside the box when it comes to your kitchen finishes. You just may love the result!
