Kitchen cabinets come in a variety of different woods. These woods can include pine, maple, oak, cherry, birch, alder, and poplar. The woods that make the best cabinets are cherry, maple, and birch; however, if you need to opt for less expensive woods, you can cover alder and poplar with a hard-glazed finish which will give your kitchen a more antique look. If you want cabinets that are going to be durable enough for use in a family kitchen, stick with hickory and oak, because both of these woods will wear well. If you have small children, you definitely will not want to select pine cabinets as pine is a soft wood and will dent and scratch more easily.
If you are looking to increase the value of your home, purchasing high quality cabinets may be a better option. Solid hard wood will last for the lifetime of your home if cared for properly. Some of the more modern man made materials have the advantages of being easy to care for and are more durable.
When choosing your cabinet design, imagine the finished result and then choose your handles accordingly. Modern kitchens will always benefit from minimalistic handles that create a statement in the space.
