KITCHEN CABINETRY WOOD TYPES
These high-quality, traditional cabinets come in rich brown colors with reddish
hues that are known to become darker as they age. The grains present on this
type of wood enable them to have finishes that will make the cabinets uniform.
Oak is unique as it is known to have knots and many different grain patterns. This cabinet
material also comes in various colors from gold to brown and is able to be stained to fit
your style preferences. Oak is also very durable, while remaining relatively inexpensive.
If you’re looking for a naturally lighter cabinet, than maple is a great choice. Although
these cabinets can be stained, they are often finished clear to keep their light color. Maple is also the preferred wood type to paint on and is the base for almost every white kitchen out there.
Quarter Sawn Oak
Quarter sawn oak is eye catching and is named after the method that is used to cut the wood.
This material has a unique and uniform grain pattern and generally comes in lighter colors.
Medium-Density Fiberwood (MDF) is composed of recycled wood fiber and resin, and it is
a great alternative to solid wood cabinets. MDF is less expensive, does not have the same
grain markings as solid wood, and will not get damaged when exposed to high humidity.
