Kitchen Cabinet Materials
When you're considering new kitchen cabinets, one of the biggest decisions is your choice of materials and finish.
Sometimes you may know exactly what you want. Maybe you're head over heels for the cabinets in your friend's brand new kitchen, or perhaps you have your mind set on maple after seeing a photo in a magazine. Perhaps you're not sure and know you want something antique, but which material should it be walnut or hickory? Our designers can help you find what's right for your dream kitchen.
Here are just a few material options that your new cabinets could be made of:
Cherry Wood - Looks great in either Modern or Elegant Look. The versatility of cherry wood cabinets makes them a very popular kitchen cabinet material
Hickory - A Popular Choice for Kitchens with a Rustic or Country Theme, but can also be used as a beautiful effect in a modern style.
Metal Cabinets - Modern, sophisticated, and professional looking. This modern material can give an elegantly minimal and sometimes futuristic appearance. Stable and durable, this surface holds up extremely well to wear and tear over the years.
Maple - In Birdseye, Knotty or Glazed finishes. This beautiful wood can give your kitchen a luscious earth tone feel in either traditional or modern styles.
Mahogany - With age, mahogany reveals a deep rich red to reddish brown color. It has a fine to medium texture with a deep grain. Some slight abnormalities within the grain can provide beautiful subtle differences in the surface. Mahogany polishes well with a high luster and is often respected as one of the world’s foremost wood for fine cabinetry.
Oak - The most popular material, oak offers a uniformed grain
and optimal choices for finishing paint or stains.
Walnut - This wood is highly prized for its richness and beauty. This dark-colored true heartwood is heavy and strong. Walnut's durability, strength and beauty makes it an excellent choice for kitchen surfaces.
