Kitchen Cabinet Wood Types Kitchen cabinets can be made from dozens of woods including Oak, Maple, Pine, Cherry, Hickory, Poplar, Alder and Birch. Hickory and Oak are the hardest and the heaviest. Cherry, Birch and Maple are considered to be well suited to cabinetry. Less expensive and more plentiful woods such as Alder and Poplar work best with glazed finishes used in creating an 'antique' look. Pine is a soft wood that can be more prone to dents and scratches.
The kitchen cabinet takes up most of the space in a kitchen; hence, it is only logical that the cabinets are chosen wisely and fits the purpose. There are many choices in the market, which all depend on the door material, color, other materials, frames, style and of course the cost. Those on a budget should consider having their existing cabinets refaced, which is less expensive than remodeling, and also will take less time. The final finish may even surprise you.
Keep the dimensions in mind always.
