Your kitchen would look incomplete without cabinets. Apart from providing storage for your utensils, pans and pantry, they also add beauty to the room. This is why when you’re investing in new cabinets for your kitchen remodeling project, you should be sure that your choice offers the right mix of function and appeal.
Most of the time, your options will boil down to whether you’ll choose a traditional or a modern style of cabinet. Legacy Design Build Remodeling suggests some materials you should consider.
Pine is a pale yellow wood with knots, which can be stained to accentuate country and traditional styles. Furthermore, it develops a rustic patina through the years. The only caveat is that, because it’s a soft wood, it’s prone to scratches and dents.
Birch is a fine-grain wood that is a little darker than maple. Unlike other materials, it takes finishes well and can mimic the look of high-end wood. While it’s one of the most affordable options, however, it’s susceptible to inconsistent coloring.
Oak and Ash
Oak is a tough and inexpensive material usually used in conventional kitchens. It features distinct grain patterns and is typically quarter-sawn to complement Arts and Crafts interior design. Meanwhile, ash is nearly as durable as oak, but it has a lighter color and more defined form. When coated with a clear or natural finish, it boasts a modern character.
Cherry is a red to reddish-brown wood that gives an elegant appearance to classic kitchens, but its versatility can also give your kitchen a modern touch. In addition, it ages beautifully as it darkens over time. It’s important to stain it often, however, to maintain a consistent color.
