11 Stunning Farmhouse Kitchens That Will Make You Want Wood Cabinets

Such gorgeous kitchens and they all have wood cabinets. LOVE! Postcards from the Ridge

As much as I like seeing white kitchens in other people's homes, I don't know if I could do it in ours. We had white cabinets in our last home and it was a challenge keeping them clean with our family of 4. I'm not totally in love with the wood cabinets in our current home but I'm not ready to spend days painting them either so I've been looking for ways to embrace the look with accessories and hardware. And I thought maybe there might be other people who love/have wood cabinets and also want some stylish ideas. I'm sharing these gorgeous kitchens that have some great ideas for adding charm and style to any kitchen, especially those with wood cabinets. Read on for some inspiring kitchen ideas!

I love the pops of color added by the area rug and the painted section of cabinets. And that sink and faucet are heavenly!





I love the way Tanya used a liming wax on her maple cabinets to soften them and tone down the yellow undertones. Our cabinets are also maple and I'm seriously considering using liming wax on them. What do you think? 


One of several beautiful farmhouse kitchens with wood cabinets. Postcards from the Ridge

This rustic farmhouse kitchen from HGTV's Fixer Upper is loaded with charm. I love the beams and the heavy textured walls. The off white walls and the glass pendant lights keep the space from feeling dark.



The wood grain on these chestnut cabinets is beautiful. They add such movement and texture to the space and give it a warmth you could never get with painted cabinets. And the bronze cabinet hardware is the perfect complement for them. The white subway tile keeps it fresh, modern, and light.

I actually didn't even notice the top cabinets when I first looked at this photo. They add practical storage without making the space seem dark. And the white subway tiles once again keep the space fresh and clean. What do you think of the sink in the corner?



Love this vintage style kitchen with wood cabinets! Lots more great examples on this site. Postcards from the Ridge

This vintage charmer is dreamy with the carrera counter and glass front cabinets. Those antique brass drawer pulls really add to the vintage feel. I could definitely live in this kitchen.

One of my favorite kitchens and all time most popular pins in pinterest, this kitchen is amazing. The area rug and painted chairs give it just the right amount of color. And those beams are so beautiful.

The warm wood of the walnut cabinets, floors, and stools and the clever clever pops of modern style make this kitchen a real winner. I'd love to cook dinner in here every night, how about you?

Kari at Clockworkdesign has done a great job at making basic cabinets look beautiful with her styling and staging. I'm inspired to change some things around in our kitchen after studying this one.

Here's another basic kitchen that looks nice with streamlined handles and shaker style cabinets. The black counter top contrasts beautifully with the wood and backsplash.

This European kitchen oozes with charm. The beams, the open shelves, the timeworn cabinets, the green shelf over the cooktop...it's all so dreamy!


What have I learned by looking at these kitchens? I've learned that mine needs some fresh white subway tile and new hardware. It looks like my to-do list just got a little longer!

    1. Hi Melanie! I'm glad you found some ideas you can use. I also have wood cabinets and don't want to paint them so I'm always looking for ways to keep them looking fresh. Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. Have a great week. ~ Angie

  2. I know this is a very late comment as you posted this in July. I saw it on Pinterest. I love my wood cabinets. I am not just not into the white. I think everyone in a few years is going to be sorry they painted their cabinets white. I have so many cover beautiful wood cabinets. There are so many things to do to make a kitchen updated without the paint. I love all of these examples. I think my favorite one is the 4th one down from Houzz. Add the subway tile and new pulls and keep the wood:)

    1. Hi Sandy. I'm not really into white cabinets either. I had them in our last home and they were impossible to keep clean. And you're right, there are so many great ways to update without painting them! Thanks for dropping by! ~ Angie

  3. I'm with you guys. I've had a white kitchen and it made me miserable constantly cleaning it. I think that in a couple of years, HGTV is going to be telling everyone that their painted cabinets make their kitchen look to sterile and they'll need to buy new ones because stripping them is just crazy. It's all part of a perpetual marketing machine to make us spend money.

  4. I also found this post on Pinterest. I've very much enjoyed looking through your blog! My cabinets are not maple, but oak but with some similarities to yours. Thank you for doing a post on wood kitchens. I have many of those same pictures saved on Pinterest or Houzz.

    One item I've added to my kitchen is the Kohler Whitehaven "short apron" style farm sink - it can be installed on a standard sink base cabinet, so great for a refresh - though more than I intended to spend. Since I had a fine working kitchen, putting off my refresh while I saved for the sink was not a problem. You can see it here:
