More often than not the kitchen is probably the smallest room in the house, but the room where we need to store quite a few items. The most popular storage spaces in the kitchen are the wooden cabinets. They provide a unique warmth and charm to the kitchen environs and are certainly more comfortable to use and maintain than stainless steel cabinets or cabinets made of other material.

While choosing storage space in the kitchen, the most important aspect to consider is functionality and not beauty. Many may consider glass or steel cabinets do provide a better and perhaps sleeker look. But then so does wood. And it is easier to maintain, no polishing or cleaning of the surface required which is a must with glass or steel. Remember it is kitchen and you can expect quite a bit of grease stains here. The only maintenance it requires is a wooden polish every year or so!
