15 Contemporary Wooden Kitchen Cabinets

Cabinets, cabinets, cabinets! Why do we actually need them? Number one answer is for storage – definitely for putting things away.

There are pretty much a couple of materials we can use for our kitchen cabinets at home; primary choice is wood. They can be made from Oak or Walnut, but whatever the wood choice you choose, always remember that maintaining is the key.

Today, we will be showing you 15 Contemporary Wooden Kitchen Cabinets. Before, we have already created a list about modern wooden kitchens and we got positive reviews. So now, we decided to be a little bit specific. We have created another list that will tackle on wood cabinet collections that we have handpicked over the internet.

Without further ado, let us check out the list below.

Boston Black & Green Kitchen

Wooden Kitchen Cabinets

Simple natural maple cabinets and granite countertops create a clean and fresh look – and new appliances and better storage options greatly improve the functionality of the space, too.

Boston Kitchen Project

Metropolitan Cabinets & Countertops

The cabinets are a natural maple with a high gloss finish which was paired with granite countertops. What more can be perfect?


modular system

Chris Snook

Light cabinets, tile floors, dark countertop – what more can you ask for in a small kitchen? The space may be small but using a modular system, we can pretty much say that this space is divine.

Metropolitan Cabinets & Countertops

The Maple cabinetry in this Boston home is very pretty – it seems like you’re looking at a show house.

Pittsburgh Home

KEA Design House

The warm tones of wooden cabinetry lend softness to the clean lines of the kitchen. Although the space receives only ambient natural light from the loft’s bank of windows, the stainless work table reflects to brighten the area from all angles.

Widen the aisles. Whether you opt for the traditional work triangle or to break up your kitchen into work zones, pay attention to your kitchen’s aisle widths.

Massachusetts Federal Home

Wooden Kitchen Cabinets

Mary Prince

Choose light colors. Lighter-colored cabinetry will appeal to more buyers. “Dark kitchens are out,” notes Gangi. “People prefer light and bright.”


peninsula stove

Koch Architects, Inc.

We note friends saying that the peninsula with stove and hanging cabinets is just magnificent.

Old Oak Kitchen

wood countertop

Remodel West

If you want to try your hand at making and finishing a wood countertop yourself rather than ordering a fully finished product, Waterlox is the sealer and finish that comes up repeatedly; just like how this kitchen space was done.

Portland Kitchen

clear lacquer

Jordan Iverson Signature Homes

Jordan Iverson Signature Homes did great in choosing the cabinet color of clear lacquer on maple, the bamboo flooring, and the concrete color of Ceaserstone counter top.

San Francisco Contemporary

light treatment

Remodel West

The light treatment done for this San Francisco home is just lovely – the pendants by the kitchen island are simple but definitely functional. The cabinets grain contrast with the flooring but sure looks great!

Serenity in Maui

black granite

Scottsdale Interior Design

The counter top in this kitchen is honed absolute black granite; but note how astonishing the cabinets are. We can only hope we have them at home.

Snowmass Country Club Townhome

Oak quarter sawn

Green Line Achitects

The cabinets are white Oak quarter sawn and the floors are oiled Walnut. How do this kitchen space make you feel?

Sonoma / Sea Ranch Redux

Wooden Kitchen Cabinets

Marcus & Willers Architects

In the kitchen more modern updates include white precast concrete countertops. “You walk up to it and you really don’t know what it is, but it has a sense of permanence, a quality that’s innate,” Willers says.

And there you have it! The 15 Contemporary Wooden Kitchen Cabinets for you own perusal.
