Wood is a common material for kitchens, from cabinets to walls to countertops. You can also use wood textures in the kitchen in surprising ways to create some visual interest and a style all your own. You can use wood in unexpected ways or in unexpected places to make a statement in a space. So if you’re looking for something creative to do with a kitchen design, take a look at the different ways to use wood textures in the kitchen.
Your Budget: You need to decide on a maximum budget for the project and choose crucial elements such as flooring, kitchen cabinets and countertops before you select anything else. If you need to keep costs down, perhaps you can retain the current kitchen layout and replace the cabinet doors, fixtures and fittings. You also need to plan whether you’ll do the work yourself or need to hire an interior designer who can help you out.
Another idea for using unexpected wood textures in the kitchen is to go as natural as you possibly can. The photo above shows a countertop that looks like the wood was just dragged right out of the forest and thrown onto the kitchen island. When combined with the sleek white design of the rest of the kitchen, it’s another interesting high-contrast style. Warm wood floors stop the countertop from looking too out of place. You could use similar highly rustic textures in other countertop spaces or in chairs and stools, too.
