It is exciting to look at all the possible kitchen cabinet designs and possibilities, but unfortunately, kitchen cabinet renovations are one of the most expensive upgrades you can make in your home.
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 you are considering remodeling your kitchen, you might be interested in saving some money by choosing cabinet resurfacing instead of replacing all the cabinets. See if cabinet refinishing or cabinet refacing is an option for you.
