The Best Cabinet Doors for Your Modern Farmhouse Kitchen

One of the most important decisions you’ll make when designing your kitchen is what kind of cabinets to buy. And all cabinets are not created equal: the style of cabinet you choose will have a huge impact on the look and feel of the space.

Reclaimed Wood

Whether you choose to go for broke and outfit all your cabinets with wood doors, or use them as an accent in a small part of the kitchen, as in this California home, the rustic look of reclaimed wood is a great way to bring a little texture to your kitchen.
