Finally, if you choose to replace your cabinets entirely or if you`re installing brand-new ones, consider buying them completely unfinished, in a "bare wood" state, and then finishing them with stain or paint yourself. You`ll save money up front this way, as opposed to paying for finished or semi-finished cabinets.
The most common material used for kitchen cabinets is wood. However, there are numerous types of woods used that will change the look and cost of your kitchen design. Common woods found in cabinetry are oak, cherry, maple, mahogany, birch and pine. Stylistically they vary in their color and their grain. Oak and maple tend to be lighter in color, while cherry and mahogany have a richer hue. In terms of cost, pine is the cheapest cabinet wood you can use while mahogany is one of the most expensive, with oak and maple falling in the mid-range in terms of price. Durability of the various types of wood is also important to consider. Pine`s budget pricing makes sense, as it scratches and dents easily. Oak and maple are very hardy, and mahogany ranks as the most durable among common cabinet woods.
Whether you are picking out your cabinets for the first time or deciding to upgrade, there are many options to customize your kitchen with cabinets.
