Gisele Bundchen's contemporary twist on this emerging design trend is the talking point of her kitchen

We've all witnessed the popularity of unpainted kitchen cabinets, specifically raw wood ones. A highly versatile material, it's no wonder that many are forgoing paint jobs for natural cabinet finishes, which fit into a range of design trends.

Putting a new spin on the trend is none other than supermodel extraordinaire Gisele Bundchen, who posted a video on her Instagram page showing off her modern, minimalist kitchen. Our eyes were immediately drawn to the wood appearance of the refrigerator, a unique take on the unpainted cabinet phenomenon, which is usually still reserved for pantries rather than replacing white or stainless steel appliances.

One of the most appealing aspects of incorporating wood exteriors into a kitchen is the endless coordination and style possibilities. Modern or traditional, minimal or maximal, wood is a true workhorse in its capacity to pair with different aesthetics and materials.

We've seen this look in an increasing number of celebrity kitchens in recent months (including the likes of Zendaya), and its organic aesthetic is too beautiful to be categorized as a fad. But what makes this design trend so appealing? Experts weigh in.

'Natural wood cabinets provide a neutral backdrop that can easily adapt to different color schemes and decor styles in any kitchen,' says Deborah Lamberton, General Manager at ASAP Restoration. 'Natural cabinets can be paired with a wide range of countertop materials, backsplashes, and hardware finishes. This allows for nearly endless customization options to suit individual tastes, preferences, and locations.'

To optimize wood's appearance, Lamberton recommends combining different lights to highlight the unique finish of the material.

'Lighting plays a crucial role in emphasizing the beauty of natural wood cabinets, or just any kitchen space in general,' she explains. 'Incorporate a combination of ambient, task, and accent lighting to illuminate the space and showcase both the rich tones and fine grains of the wood.'
