Bamboo Kitchen Cabinets

Beautiful, renewable bamboo cabinets have gained popularity with construction professionals and homeowners alike because of their unusual good looks and superior strength. Unlike most hardwood trees, which must mature for decades before harvest and are consumed in the process, bamboo grows quickly and can be cut in just seven years. A single plant yields multiple crops over its lifetime. This rapid rate of growth and sustainability makes bamboo an environmentally friendly building material.

Get the best of both worlds with bamboo. Bamboo wood has a unique grain formed by the distinctive nodes or knuckles of the stalks. As strong as hardwood and resistant to chips and cracks, bamboo cabinets are an attractive, durable and green addition to your modern kitchen design.

Are Bamboo Cabinets Right For Me?

A kitchen remodel is a big project. Find out if bamboo cabinets are right for you.

Pros:

  • Sustainability - Responsible management, use and production makes bamboo a green product that delivers the look of wood without the environmental impact.
  • Strength and Durability - When properly treated, bamboo can be as hard as or harder than oak or maple and creates longwearing and sturdy cabinet doors.
  • Elegance and Warmth - Although bamboo kitchen cabinets are most often used in modern kitchen design, darker finishes have a warm glow that softens contemporary settings without sacrificing elegance.
  • Easy Maintenance - Unlike some hardwoods that require regular oiling to maintain their good looks, bamboo cabinets clean up easily with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth.

Cons:

  • Transportation Costs - Since bamboo is grown, harvested and processed in Asia, the costs associated with importing the material have an impact on its environmentally friendly status.
  • Scratching - Like all wooden cabinets, bamboo surfaces may scratch with rough treatment.

Our Bamboo Cabinet - Tribecca

Most bamboo kitchen cabinets on the market have a bland blond or natural finish that doesn’t reflect current trends in contemporary kitchen design. Our Tribecca bamboo cabinets are stained a deep and lustrous dark brown that enhances the unique patterning of the material and blends seamlessly into modern kitchens.

Tribecca features a smooth, frameless, double-paned door with 100 percent bamboo centers. Cabinet boxes are manufactured of grade-A plywood with matching interior and exterior surfaces and concealed soft closing hinges. The solid wood undermount drawers are crafted with dovetail construction, full extension and soft close.

Bamboo Kitchen Cabinet Style Ideas

  • Black and Bamboo Kitchen - Dark cabinets and black marble counters and backsplashes are the epitome of elegance. Swap traditional cherry for the unexpected look of dark bamboo to put a custom spin on this trendy look. Paint the walls honey yellow and the ceiling in a contrasting dove gray to add light to this luxurious design, or go even deeper with shades of red or rose. Black or stainless appliances and chrome cabinet hardware add the finishing touches that make this kitchen shine.
  • Ultra-Modern Kitchen - Combine bamboo cabinets with stainless steel for a state-of-the-art kitchen that is truly unique. Choose an industrial stainless countertop and sink or pair poured concrete counters and floors with a hammered steel backsplash and oven hood. Mix it up by using matching gray granite or engineered stone on an island or bar. Hanging chrome pole lights, contemporary furnishings and a built-in entertainment center and docking station complete this kitchen of the future.
  • Green and Gold Kitchen - Go green in more ways than one and use the colors of nature to offset beautiful bamboo. Green and gold veined marble creates a striking contrast against the dark surfaces of the cabinets. Alternatively, try small glass tiles in multiple shades of green or green, brown and gold as a backsplash against a golden hardwood or granite counter. For a truly environmentally friendly kitchen, combine bamboo cabinets with energy saving appliances, recycled tile counters and a naturally insulating concrete floor.
  • Bright, White and Bamboo Kitchen - Create stunning contrast by pairing dark bamboo with pale, creamy white. Dark cabinets pop against white walls and counters. For a serene kitchen, use backsplashes of pale aquamarine scalloped ceramic tile. Up the excitement by adding colorful appliances and tile or painted accents in bright yellow, green or red. Lighten the look, divide the room and create visual interest in a dark kitchen by building an island of white cabinets topped with dark granite.
