6 plywood kitchen ideas to capture your imagination
Plywood kitchens are a Pinterest dream, the clean aesthetic and beautiful grain shining through. Quirky and contemporary, it’s a surefire way to make it unique to your home.
Not only is plywood aesthetically stunning, but it is also one of the strongest materials to be used in kitchens. More often than not, the carcasses for bespoke kitchen companies are usually made from plywood due to their durability.
1. Pegboard Plywood Kitchen
One of the kitchens that gets the most interest, particularly from the press, is our Pegboard Plywood Kitchen. It’s utterly unique in both form and function: a moveable island unit makes the kitchen versatile enough for busy family life, while the exposed plywood acts as a beautiful, natural canvas for playful, colourful details.
The pegboard panel with sturdy holes and pegs is very functional and gives you an endless range of storage options. A pegboard can be used to store small objects such as kitchen utensils or baskets to help keep your kitchen organised.

2. Exposed Edge Plywood Kitchen
Whilst the most common option used to be to cover the edges of the plywood, it is now more and more common to opt for exposed edges for a more interesting and characteristic look.
Similar to our Pegboard Plywood, we created the Chapman Kitchen to create a mix of exposed edge plywood with added colour to create a beautiful balance. We designed the space using a calming light green and stunning pink which both perfectly complement the exposed plywood edges. It’s also childproof and the doors can be wiped clean easily!
In this case, we went for a green tone, but exposed edges can add visual interest and complement the wooden tones perfectly when paired with any other pastel colours.
3. Douglas Fir Plywood Kitchen
Plywood is a beautiful material to work with and the results are even better. Douglas Fir is a relatively expensive material compared to birch ply, but worth every penny when it looks like the one below…
Douglas Fir is versatile and adds warmth to any kitchen with its natural colour.
4. Plywood Slab Door (overlay)
Our Contemporary Eco Kitchen is another one of our beloved ply kitchen designs. In an overlay style, this plywood design was finished in a white lye stain to give the kitchen a lighter finish.
5. Mixed Plywood Kitchen
The following is a combination of exposed edge plywood on the upper cabinetry with slab door plywood on the lower run. Mixing and matching plywood styles creates a more playful feel with the ability to add colour to keep this cottage extension warm and not washed out.
6. Bright Plywood Kitchen
In this contemporary ply kitchen design, we kept the frames exposed while painting the opposite units in Little Greene shades of Orange Aurora and Green Verditer. The client loved art and knew the exact colours she wanted to pair together to create an eccentric mix. It shows just how vibrant a plywood kitchen can be.
Its strength and durability make plywood the perfect choice when designing a kitchen that lasts a lifetime.
