Your log home can be enhanced with an endless number of ideas and unique products. Since the kitchen is the heart of today’s homes, let’s think about some stunning ideas for it. Cabinets, pine floors, islands, lighting, and décor items are favorite areas to improve. All these products can be ordered through trusted online suppliers like the WoodWorkers Shoppe and the Log Home Shoppe.

Kitchen Cabinets with the Wow Factor

You don’t have to settle for hum-drum cabinets when you can have custom-made ones for your kitchen. They are made to your specifications and layouts for:

  • Type of wood and style
  • Heights, widths, and depths
  • Number of units
  • Stained wood
  • Painted wood

The reason they have the ‘wow’ factor is they are one-of-a-kind masterpieces made with only the best materials. They are built to custom sizes at no extra charge with solid wood drawers, sturdy ¾” birch ply-box construction, and 120-pound drawer slides.

Cedar Paneling

Choose among:

  • Knotty Pine Log & Panel
  • Knotty Pine Hand-hewn Log
  • Cedar Log & Panel
  • Clear Pine
  • Ambrosia Red Maple Hand-hewn & Panel
  • Oak Cabinetry
  • Hickory
  • Aspen

Create a unique kitchen with custom-made cabinets in your choice of styles and wood.

Pine Floors Add a Traditional Touch

Nothing says log home like solid wood floors throughout the house, especially gorgeous knotty pine floors. The beauty of pine tongue and groove flooring is it can be stained many different shades to match a kitchens’ color scheme.

If you desire a clear finish to enhance pine’s natural colors, knots, and grain, order pre-finished wood. This option makes the work go much faster and you don’t need to hire a painter. A variety of widths are available for the effect you want to achieve.

A Stone and Granite Kitchen Island Is an Eye-Catcher

Pine Paneling

Create a stone and granite kitchen island and it will catch the attention of everyone that enters the room. This island contains a variety of stone sizes, shapes, and colors for extra appeal and beauty. As an option, the top 6”-8” or stone can be replaced with log siding, pine paneling, or cedar paneling.

From any angle, this island is a winner with or without a faucet, sink, shelves, or doors. A stonemason can add these features if you want them. Add a matching set of stools or chairs that will draw family, friends, and guests to it.

Rustic Lighting Sets a Mood

For something special in your kitchen, install unique rustic lighting fixtures instead of stock fixtures found in the big box stores. The styles run from simple to complex whether rustic, antique, European, colonial, or modern. Match the fixtures’ colors to the room, and install a dimmer switch on a few to help set a different mood from day to day.

Pine Paneling for Log Homes

Log Home Kitchen Décor Adds a Unique Touch

Special décor makes working in the kitchen more fun and exciting. The range of items is endless and here are some suggestions many homeowners have adopted:

  • Drawer Pulls – Rustic door and drawer pulls and handles come in a variety of materials, sizes, shapes, and colors to set off your kitchen cabinets.
  • Floor Rugs – Throw and area rugs come in many colors, patterns, and sizes to fit any kitchen décor. Buy non-slip varieties because they are safer.
  • Hinges – Hinges are available in a variety of color finishes and are ideal for interior doors in any room.
  • Mirrors – Steel mirrors finished with a copper patina simply look sharp and are available in several styles.
  • Rustic Furniture – Sturdy stools make great chairs for eating at a counter or table. A knotty pine peg log shelf/coat rack provides a place for coats and hats.
  • Switch Plates – Unfinished pine wall switch plates can be stained to match or contrast with your kitchen theme. Steel covers finished with a copper patina are beautiful and both pine and steel are inexpensive and easy to install.
  • Wall Décor – Artwork, pictures, antiques, tapestries, lanterns, lamps, and other personal items look amazing in the kitchen.

Now that we’ve discussed cabinets, flooring, islands, lighting, and décor items, it’s your turn to select the right ones for your stunning kitchen.
