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?

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.

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!
