36 Cozy Stained Kitchen Cabinet Ideas
Neutrals are the most popular colors for kitchens but what if you want something different? Stained cabinetry is making a huge comeback, it gives a cozy and welcoming feel to any space and will make it look very fresh and unexpected.
Staining is more affordable than painting, so if you make your decision based solely on budget, then you may find stained cabinets to be the better choice than painted ones. If you desire the most durable cabinet finish, then stain is the best option. Stained cabinets are easy to touch-up and don’t show marks or scuffs as easily as painted cabinets. It’s easy to find touch-up tools that closely match your cabinet stain.

How To Pull Off The Look
If you like the look of natural wood grain and knots, a stain shows these features at their best. There are many examples and looks of such kitchens: very sleek mid-century modern ones, minimalist and organic sleek wooden kitchens, modern rustic and farmhouse kitchens with shaker style wooden cabinets and stone countertops. If you don’t want only staining, go for a more modern and sleek look with two-tone cabinets – stained and colored ones together. Choose the colors carefully to create a contrasting or a neutral and peaceful look. Partnering cool metals with warm wood brings beautiful contrast and balance to a modern kitchen space.
