Modern light wood cabinets are clean and practical, and will match well with almost any type of kitchen flooring, countertops, walls, and furnishings. If you want to keep a wide range of decorating options available to you, then a beautiful light wood kitchen is a great starting point!
Is it a Trend? Light wood kitchen cabinets are high on the popularity charts for modern kitchen colors. Unlike bolder color tones that can shift with the fashion tides, a well-designed light wood kitchen is a fairly safe choice. Because light wood cabinets tend to be subdued, care must be taken during the design phase to ensure this safe choice does not turn out to be a dull one. You'll find hundreds of photos of modern kitchens on this site featuring light wood cabinets as either the central color or as a contrasting accent in two-tone kitchens.
A Practical Choice. Light, natural wood cabinets are very practical. Dust and crumbs don't scream for attention on neutral-toned cabinets compared to darker surfaces, so light wood kitchens should require less frequent cleaning than dark wood kitchens. Still, cleanliness is key to maintaining the lustre and beauty of the natural wood. Knowing what to expect in advance can pay off with a lifetime of enjoyment in your modern light wood kitchen.
