Painted Cabinetry in a Timber Frame Home

A beautiful kitchen in a timber frame home is always a winner in my book.  In a conventionally framed home, natural wood cabinetry would be my choice, in almost every situation.  But, what about a timber frame home?  Wood timbers, probably wood flooring, the cabinetry in another wood choice might be too much.  Painted cabinetry wins out for contrast alone.

What do you think?  The white cabinets are very pretty and very safe.  Would you be more daring?

Count me in on all of this.  Hand hewn timbers, gorgeous stone fireplace and hearth, love it.  Let’s take a look at the exterior, just for fun!

Kitchen Cabinet Ideas for your Timber Frame Home.

Wood cabinets?  Is that too much wood? Painted cabinets?  What to do? Well, how about taking a look at both. Full timber frame home in rough sawn hemlock timbers and a custom cherry full overlay cabinet.  Very nice!

Although I love the contrast between the pine timbers, painted custom cabinetry and the wood floor, I wouldn’t haven chosen white for my household.  Brave choice and it looks fabulous!

Now, let’s talk about that fireplace…
