This stained style almost seems to be a mixture of back-to-nature combined with extreme modernism.

All-white kitchens have been extremely popular, but to keep them from feeling like sterile boxes, beautiful millwork is key.

Arts and Crafts style is a study in earth tones, geometry, and fine craftsmanship. The cabinetry recessed panels framed with flat faces resemble classic Shaker style. But where simple Shaker style leaves off and Arts and Crafts begins is in the added details. Warm cherry wood is indicative of the finely handcrafted cabinets, as are glass-fronted upper cabinets detailed with wood muntins, arched details beneath the cabinets, and hammered-copper pulls.
