Updating Your Kitchen? Tips To Help You Choose The Best Cabinets For Your Kitchen

by April Carlson

If you are updating your kitchen, one thing that can make a big difference in the way your kitchen looks is to replace the cabinets with new ones. When it comes to cabinets you will find many types, which can make it difficult to choose. To help you make the best choice, below are three types you will find so you can get your new cabinets installed in your kitchen.

Stock or Custom

The first thing to decide is if you want stock kitchen cabinets or to have the cabinets custom made. With stock cabinets you can walk into just about any home improvement store, choose your cabinets, and have them delivered to you. You can also choose cabinets that are unfinished, which can save you money. You will have to finish the cabinets on your own, however.

Custom cabinets can be beneficial, as you can choose the cabinets exactly the way you like them. For example, you can put shelving in different areas, such as a pull out spice rack, or extra shelving in the upper cabinets. You can choose to have glass fronts on some cabinets but not on others. The custom cabinet company can go over all the options you have, and then come to your home and install the new cabinets for you.

Wood Used

There are a variety of woods that are used to make cabinets.

One type is made of cherry wood. This wood has red or dark brown undertones. The wood also has close grains, but you will see random wood markings throughout the cabinets. There is even grain so you can easily apply a finish to these cabinets on your own in the future, if preferred.

If you want a lighter wood, maple cabinets would work well for you. These cabinets are creamy, white color. You will also find hits of reddish brown undertones, generally on the door panels. This wood also has an even grain as with cherry.

Oak wood is also available, which as a much more distinct grain pattern throughout the wood. You can find oak that is a dark, reddish color to a white to a light tan color. You may also see streaks of yellow or green in the oak. This is because this wood has mineral deposits.

These are just some of the cabinets available for you to purchase. A cabinet construction company, like Logan Construction, can go over the other options with you, as well as give you more details about the information above.
