Kitchen cabinets come in a variety of different woods. These woods can include pine, maple, oak, cherry, birch, alder, and poplar. The woods that make the best cabinets are cherry, maple, and birch; however, if you need to opt for less expensive woods, you can cover alder and poplar with a hard-glazed finish which will give your kitchen a more antique look. If you want cabinets that are going to be durable enough for use in a family kitchen, stick with hickory and oak, because both of these woods will wear well. If you have small children, you definitely will not want to select pine cabinets as pine is a soft wood and will dent and scratch more easily.
If your budget is smaller yet and you have to do most of the work yourself, there is still hope. Get kitchen design books and magazines to guide your design efforts. Do as much of the work as you are able to do well, then hire professionals to do what you can't. Sometimes you can hire a professional who will let you work with him to save money. You may be able to use your old cabinets if you paint them or have them refaced. You can always get a good plan from a kitchen designer and do it in stages as your budget allows.
There are 4 types of cabinet classifications for you to consider before deciding on the perfect one for your kitchen. They are stock cabinets, custom units, semi-custom units and frame or frameless units. However, keep in mind that the final cost will depend on the manufacturer or brand, the size or layout, interior accessories and the type of wood and finish that you prefer.
