When it comes to kitchen cabinets — beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder! Painted cabinets have long been the norm & are still preferred by many homeowners. Most of us have never given much thought to stained cabinets and keeping it real! Meaning simply allowing the beauty of the wood, with all of its natural character, to shine thru.

This year we are seeing an emerging trend of uniquely stained kitchen cabinets. Companies like Wellborn or Waypoint have recently introduced their own personal lines of stain cabinets. Each with very unique undertones. This is a great option for homeowners who want to be able to see the grain and texture of the beautiful wood.

If your budget is tight, you might consider unfinished cabinets. You could stain them yourself or even refinish existing wood cabinetry. But if you have any doubts about your stripping and staining skills, it’s definitely worth hiring a professional. Things could go from good to bad quickly if you’re not prepared!

Here are 6 favorite kitchens with stained cabinetry. It’s amazing, depending on the wood and stain, how each collection is uniquely different.
