If your budget is smaller yet and you have to do most of the work yourself, there is still hope. Get kitchen design books and magazines to guide your design efforts.

You will want to consider the color, the grain of the wood and the finish applied to the wood. Better cabinets are finished with several coats of polyurethane to protect the wood. Solid wood is currently the most popular kitchen cabinet design choice.
