10 Stylish Walnut Kitchen Cabinet Ideas

Your guide to walnut kitchen cabinets!

Walnut kitchen cabinets have come on the kitchen design scene in a big way this year!.

As we see all-white and gray kitchens take a backseat in kitchen trends, wood kitchens are making their way into many modern designs, and contemporary walnut kitchen cabinets are one of the best woods around!

Dark walnut classic kitchen cabinets are nothing new, however, they have been used in kitchen designs for decades. Their versatility, durability and overall style recommend them to anyone looking for a solid and contemporary cabinet solution. We also love that walnut comes in so many variations, from light brown to dark walnut cabinets and light walnut, the options are seriously endless. The variety of patterns on walnut cabinet doors have a truly unique look that is hard to replicate with any other wood choice.

So whether you’re designing a modern farmhouse kitchen or an ultra modern space, we recommend considering a walnut kitchen for a stunningly rich and luxe look!

Here are a few walnut cabinet ideas!

While walnut cabinets do tend to show up more in modern kitchens, they also work really well with a more traditional kitchen design. The silver handles and shaker style cabinets look perfect with the warm walnut tones.
