South African kitchen planners are really taking things up a notch, in terms of the styles of wooden cabinets they are selecting for clients' homes. Gone are the days when simple natural wood was the only option, in order to create a rustic or pared back aesthetic, as now, anything goes. Wood can be used to offer an industrial, contemporary or even minimalist look, but if you're still not totally convinced that it could be the perfect material for your kitchen, come with us now as we prove it beyond any doubt!

1. Mixing natural and painted wood has created a modern variation on traditional rustic motifs here. What an inviting and understated style of beauty!

2. Rich dark wood offers a whole new level of opulence, in terms of kitchen design. It looks even more incredible when balanced with white walls.

3. What a hybrid! A mix of simple and ornate carpentry, as well as wildly different shades of wood, treads the line between modern and traditional perfectly.

4. Wooden cabinets can look terrifically modern, if kept simple and perfectly painted, like these ones. The neutral colour really lends an edge of modernism.

5. White wood has a natural ability to look timeless, chic and dazzlingly contemporary, but this one, with Shaker cabinets has a more traditional appeal. The lighting has really helped to pick out the door details.

6. Is this not the ultimate rustic wooden kitchen? Rich organic wood meets a granite top with ease and looks warm, inviting and ready to use. The glass cabinets really cut through to material too.

7. A dream in cream, this wooden kitchen has all the appeal of a traditional farmhouse installation, as well as the functionality of a contemporary design. Gorgeous!
