Whatever your cabinets are built of defines how they resemble and how they'll last up to everyday usage. To assist you to discover an equilibrium among style and structural support, here's a glance at the most popular cabinetry materials.

Utmost cabinets are constructed from hardwoods, but to save expenses, these hardwoods are usually applied as veneers above a substrate, such as plywood. Wood bends quickly as its damp content turns. That's why it's essential that the timber is polished on all sides before it departs the industry.

Raw cabinetry should be polished on‐site as quickly as possible to stop bending. Finished cabinets are more durable than solid wood in high-humidity spaces.

Varieties Ready

Red oak is powerful, long-lasting, and comparatively cheap. Ready in a broad variety of styles and polishes, it highlights proclaimed grain patterns and is most frequently used for classic cabinet styles. This timber is an alternative for stock, semi‐custom, and custom‐made cabinets.

White oak is as long‐lasting and a little tougher than its red counterpart. With more golden hues, white oak has a more complex grain and is usually for custom cabinetry -- particularly for an Arts and Crafts or period looks. Usually,white oak is available just as a custom choice.

Hard maple is a fine‐grain and light-color wood somewhat more costly than oak but less compact. A favorite option for semi‐custom and custom cabinets, maple can be painted, but it is most frequently treated with a pure or natural finish to deliver a light, modern appearance.

Hickory is thinner than oak but is alike in grain pattern and power. This creamy, pale yellowish timber can be painted; however, like maple, its light hues are most frequently complemented with a clear or natural finish. Lending itself to a rural design, hickory is an excellent option for custom and semi-custom cabinetry.

Cherry is strong enough to endure knocks and marring. Classic and dignified when applied for specific vintage designs, cherry's design versatility can also provide a kitchen with a modern character. This soft, fine-grain, red to reddish-brown timber deepens with age and is frequently painted for the unity of tone.

Birch is a long‐lasting, fine-grain timber that is slightly deeper than maple. It takes polishes properly and can mask as a more precious wood.
