Hickory – Hickory has a similar graining pattern to oak, but its color is lighter. This type of wood is characterized by a natural creamy, pale yellow color. Although it can be stained, hickory is better treated with a clear stain or natural varnish in order to highlight its distinct blond tones. When it comes to strength, hickory is comparable to oak. It is a popular choice for rustic inspired kitchens and is typically used for custom and semi custom kitchen cabinets.
Birch – Birch is a type of fine grained wood that has a slightly darker color than maple. It is also durable and can stand up to the wear and tear of everyday use. One of the most prized qualities of birch wood is that it takes finishes well. Offering versatility and flexibility in terms of application, birch wood may be stained or treated with faux finishes in order to achieve a more expensive look. Using the right type and color of wood stain, birch wood can also be easily passed off as cherry or maple. However, applying wood stain to birch requires extra care since it is prone to irregular coloring. Compared to other wood species, birch is less expensive.
