Bamboo is becoming a common material used in high-end wood flooring, but in recent years, bamboo kitchen cabinets have also witnessed a micro-boom. This is because bamboo is an extremely sturdy and high-quality wood, resistant to denting or chipping, and sporting an attractive and lustrous appearance. If you're considering bamboo kitchen cabinets, here are a few things to keep in mind.

Firstly, think about color. Bamboo has a light, beautiful natural hue, so most customers don't tend to add much (if any) stain to bamboo kitchen cabinets. That said, if you prefer a darker tone, bamboo kitchen cabinets are available in darker stains, or you can stain them yourself.

Next, consider the space. Bamboo cabinets are still not terribly common, so if you have a particularly unique kitchen space, you will likely need to have them custom-made—which could get very expensive. Stock and semi-stock bamboo cabinets may be somewhat limited in terms of shape and size, so be sure to do your research and have all your dimensions handy before heading to the retailer.

Finally, when it comes to style, bamboo kitchen cabinets are generally available in one of two designs: flat/slab or Shaker-style forms. Bamboo cabinets could conceivably be custom-ordered in any design or style, but because of the expense and rarity of bamboo, anyone wishing to explore this option would need to be willing to pay a hefty premium.
