Mission-style kitchen cabinets are often constructed of American woods like red oak and maple, then burnished to a rich finish. They commonly feature a paneled-wood face, and matching wood is often used for molding and other design touches.
In terms of color for mission-style kitchen cabinets, many homeowners choose to leave them in their natural wood state—or stain them to bring out a deeper hue. Painting is less common, but if you choose to paint some or all of the cabinets, light hues tend to work well when paired with the darker mission-style accents that are common.
