Color is an essential element to your design. If you are going with a light and bright kitchen design, you will want lighter colored cabinets, but darker ones can make a fantastic contrast while adding texture to your design.
Stock cabinets are the lowest in price because of the limited choices, colors and styles. Stock cabinets come in 3 grades. The standard grade is made up of particleboard sides and a 4-sided drawer box that is stapled and glued. The midrange cabinets have better drawer boxes, and usually have thicker shelves in the wall cabinets. The higher-grade cabinet has the features of the previous grades in addition to plywood sides, concealed hinges and a better quality finish. They all come with standard accessories.
Kitchen Cabinet Wood Types Kitchen cabinets can be made from dozens of woods including Oak, Maple, Pine, Cherry, Hickory, Poplar, Alder and Birch. Hickory and Oak are the hardest and the heaviest. Cherry, Birch and Maple are considered to be well suited to cabinetry. Less expensive and more plentiful woods such as Alder and Poplar work best with glazed finishes used in creating an 'antique' look. Pine is a soft wood that can be more prone to dents and scratches.
