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.
If you are planning on a particular color as the theme of your kitchen, then the kitchen cabinets should be made with a wood that has a color that will gel with your theme color. If your theme color is a light shade then some people like to go for light colored wood so that the kitchen cabinets and the wall colors are all light. Some go for dark colored wood so that the kitchen has a warmer and cozier feel.
Designing a custom kitchen in your home for your new or renovated home can be a dream come true or a living nightmare. Today's homeowners are more likely than ever to enjoy time in the kitchen preparing elaborate meals to serve to their family and company alike. Cooking appliances and tools have become more specialized and take up additional storage space. Old fashioned kitchens are often unable to accommodate these tools easily, either because of their shapes or sizes.
