Oak wood cabinetry is starting to creep back into the kitchen and bathroom marketplace with Cerused and driftwood finishes. In the 1970`s well into the early 90`s, they were the cabinet of choice. Usually seen in a honey spice stain, a version of a raised panel cathedral door with wild grain patterns became the mainstay in many homes at that time. After a much-needed departure, the popularity of maple, cherry and a rise of engineered wood alternatives reduced the use of oak cabinet constructions. Materials like wood veneer and painted MDF are now more common in cabinet door construction than ever. But as with other parts of the house, many homeowners are seeking connections to their past and a renewed attention to vintage, with kitchens being no different.
Small kitchens are now given modular and adjustable cabinet designs which are capable to store more items in a small area. Similar cabinet design is made with pull out wooden material which is given several small partitions for the storage of various kitchen valuables.
Whether you are re-facing old kitchen cabinets or installing a complete new bank of cabinetry, the materials you use will go a long way to defining the design aesthetic of your kitchen, as well as the budget for your project.
