Rustic wood cabinets add warmth and texture to a space, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere. This style is particularly well-suited for kitchens that are open and spacious and is becoming increasingly popular in both contemporary and traditional kitchens.

From rich alder to light-toned hickory, there is a type of rustic wood to fit every design aesthetic. Rustic woods also have a unique character that comes from their natural imperfections, knots, and graining, making each cabinet or flooring truly one-of-a-kind.

Another great thing about rustic woods is their versatility. They work well in both modern and traditional settings, and can be paired with a variety of other design elements, from sleek stainless steel to cozy textiles. No matter the look you prefer, rustic woods can fit right in.

Rustic wood is known for its natural imperfections, knots, and graining. These unique features add depth and character to the wood, making each piece truly one-of-a-kind. Rustic wood also tends to have a more muted color palette, with a mix of light and dark tones that add depth to the space.

Keep in mind that we are unable to control knot amount or placement or grain or color consistency, and any occurrence of these natural imperfections are not considered warrantable.

For example, you can pair rustic wood cabinets with a sleek, modern countertop for a chic, contemporary look. Or you can pair them with a natural stone backsplash for a more traditional, warm feel.


Rustic wood is also known for its durability and strength. Whether you choose alder or hickory, rustic wood cabinets can stand up to the wear and tear of a busy home.
