What is Your Style?
Kitchen cabinet refacing can make your whole house feel new and bright, but choosing cabinet materials can be daunting. This might help.
When you choose wooden cabinet refacing, you will find a wide variety of options. Most cabinets are made of wood, but they are often applied as veneers over a bottom substrate, such as plywood or particleboard, in order to keep cabinet refacing cost down. The following woods are among the most popular:
- Maple. This wood has a fine grain and is often very light in color. While it can be stained, most buyers opt to give it a clear finish and let the beauty shine through.
- Cherry. One of the toughest woods, cherry has a fine grain and darkens elegantly with age.
- Birch. This is often used to create a “faux” cherry or maple look for a lower price.
- White Oak. Often used as a custom option, white oak is durable, strong, and has a golden tone.
- Red Oak. Just as strong as white oak but less expensive, red oak is often used for traditional cabinet styles.
- Hickory. This wood is a pale, creamy yellow that lends itself well to a natural finish. It is lighter than oak but just as strong.
- Pine. Not as strong as other woods, pine can be dented easily – but the natural knots in the wood are often sought after in a more country-style or rustic look.
- Ash. This is comparable to oak in terms of strength but has a lighter color. It’s often used in custom work.
