Choose Solid Wood for a Quality Kitchen Cabinet

Choosing the right materials for your kitchen cabinets is an integral part of manufacturing a kitchen with a specific budget and design concepts in mind.

One of the ideal choices for kitchen cabinets is solid wood. They are exceptionally durable and long lasting, thus making the money you spend now last for many years.

Wood kitchen cabinets are available in a wide range of choices, allowing homeowners to choose between different colors and grains that best match the style and decor of their home.

Wood grain is defined in three ways; closed, medium and open. Closed grain is smooth to touch while the open grain has raised, prominent texture. Closed grain woods are best for paintings, while open grain woods are best stained that brings out their natural texture and beauty.

Different woods can also be finished in different ways to produce a unique patina that can glow in the warm light of a room. Wood finishing provides an important factor in determining the quality of a kitchen cabinet. Factory finishes found in stock cabinets are more consistent, smoother and last longer, unlike cabinets finished in custom shops. Large kitchen cabinet manufactures uses an automated finishing process that results in a more consistent finish which small cabinet makers find very expensive to sustain.

Solid wood can be designed in a style of your choice using your preferred materials, as they are incredibly flexible. These styles range from perfectly smooth and flat to the ornately carved designs popular in many country and traditional kitchens. You can also complete your design by using the wide selection of on lays, ornaments and corbels, which will add a touch of elegance to your cabinet.

One of the advantages of wood kitchen cabinets is that they will never go out of style, and neither will their beauty or warmth. Thus, they will enhance the appearance and the value of a home when it is time to sell. Wood kitchen cabinets simply leave you with a unique feeling and ambiance far different from generically manufactured cabinets.
