While so many are dreaming of freshly painted cabinets and an all white kitchen, stained cabinets everywhere are screaming, “look at me!” I see you stained cabinets and I must say, I’m crushing hard. Don’t get me wrong, I love painted cabinets. One of the first things we did in our home before we moved in was to paint the cabinets. I wrote all about it in my previous post, 5 easy updates when you can’t afford to renovate but not all stained kitchen cabinets are equal. Some don’t ever need to see a drop of paint!
With that said, I’m dying to show you what I’ve found over the last few months cruising through Pinterest. These stained kitchen cabinets are guaranteed to inspire and are just another reason you should never chase trends. When you’ve got something classic that you love, stick with it! So, let’s take a little look at a few of my favorite kitchens that are sporting that pretty wood grain!

I had to throw this one in. It’s not a kitchen but this mudroom had me at first site! This stained bench and side cabinets are just beautiful with its soft rustic color.
I don’t know about you, but I’m completely inspired. I’ve never been one to paint every piece of wood furniture. I think it really depends on the piece. Just like furniture I can say the same about cabinets. These cabinets just go to show how beautiful that natural look can be. A lot of it can depend of the choice of back splash and counter tops. There needs to be a break in the rich wood to bring balance but I see a lot of kitchens drifting back to stained cabinets in the future. What’s your thoughts? Would you opt for stained cabinets over painted ones?
