The Dark Wood Kitchen

A large percentage of people want their furniture, and especially their kitchens, to be bright and light, adding to a feeling of space in their homes.  Oftentimes, people equate kitchen cabinets with either white, or light wooden cabinets, but this is not always the case, as many styles exist.

Different places have different trends.  Dark wood kitchen cabinets have been around for a very long time, and were popular in many parts of the world in the past, including the Bavarian region, known for its fantastic cabinetry, and many areas of Great Britain.

One of the reasons such cabinets were so popular was due to the species of wood found in those areas.  Some of them took dark stains very well, and were meant to last not only a lifetime, but literally forever.  Other places stained such cabinetry to be dark, because older wooden furniture and cabinets of super high quality began to take on a dark sheen as they were used and rubbed to glossiness.  The dark wood cabinet conveyed high quality, class, and wealth.

RTA Kitchen Cabinets

While in yesteryear the only way to get such cabinets was to have them built custom for your home, palace or castle, such is not the case today.  RTA kitchen cabinets have come a long way, and have been engineered to be super easy to put together, long lasting, and to look fantastic.

For example, one of our more popular styles, the Weston Espresso is a great example of how RTA kitchen cabinets can be a bit more modernized but still retain that classic look and great style.  They truly emulate the cabinets that the “modern” world (hundreds of years ago!) wished for.

Even better, while they are solid hardwood doors and face frames, they also have ½” plywood boxes and ¾” shelving, all stained to match the outside.  This cuts down on costs and bulk, while actually making the entire cabinet stronger than it would be from solid wood alone.

Dark Kitchen Cabinets Will Change Your Home

Something about the dark styles of kitchen cabinets conveys a sense of warmth and permanency.  We here at RTA Cabinet Store love it when someone picks dark wood kitchen cabinets, as we know their kitchen is going to be something to show off in their home.  Combining that with the fact that all of the styles have many choices to choose from, each home with these cabinets installed will be both unique and classy.

There are a lot of great things you can do with light when you have dark kitchen cabinets installed as well, further making them a great choice.  RTA cabinets are very economical, lasting a long time, and an extra coat of stain (in the far future of course) can bring them back to looking like new in no time.
