Don't think that wood cabinets are your only option.
Once upon a time, wood kitchens were all the rage. Of course, this was way back when, when wood was pretty much the only option. Since then, we've been introduced to everything from linoleum, cork, and tile for flooring, marble and stainless steel for countertops and appliances, and metal and glass for furniture designed to help expand the space of a kitchen. While there’s absolutely still a niche for these materials, lately, we’ve been seeing a lot of wood kitchens pop back into the home inspiration space as a kitchen trend for 2020. Think: wooden cabinets, countertops, floors, furniture, and accessories—all geared towards adding an earthy, farmhouse style to the home.
As much as we love sleek marble kitchens, we can’t lie: Wooden accents—no matter how small—make our heart flutter too, and we have a funny feeling they’ll do the same for you. So whether you want to go all-out with wood-grain cabinets, approach it practically with chopping block-inspired counter space, or keep it a bit more minimal with serving trays, you’ll find 15 wood kitchen ideas ahead to get you inspired. Chances are, you’ll want to bring more than just one idea into your space. Fortunately, many of these picks come in multiple washes, so you can tailor them to your dream vision.
MichaelG: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ― Theodore Roosevelt
