Wood kitchen cupboards are the cream of the crop when it comes to buying the best cabinets for your kitchen, whether you are buying them to change the look of your home’s kitchen corner or if you are really going for a full-blown kitchen renovation and you want to start by choosing the best kitchen cupboards to work around. Wood is affordable, durable and classically beautiful.
Oak wood is a famous choice for those investing in wooden kitchen cupboards and this goes with good reason as oak is affordable as well as being one of the strongest wood you can pick. Oak also has the finest grain that automatically grants it a unique classical feel to it but this fine grain also allows it to stain well into other wood colors. Oak is also really thick and this works in two ways: it allows carvers to make elaborate designs while also ensuring that kitchen cupboards made from oak will stand the test of time.
Mahogany is another popular wood choice and this works almost like oak except in one particular department. Mahogany is thick and is said to be the most durable of wooden materials used in kitchen cupboards but it also has a natural dark color to it. This may be a bit of a letdown for those who like to continually alter their cabinets’ look with wood stains but this dark look works well for those trying to achieve an authentic renaissance or gothic look.
Lastly there is Maple wood. Maple has the lightest tone amongst the three mentioned wooden materials here but this also lets it stain so well that you can easily make it look like other, more expensive wood materials and it has a strong shock resistance that lets it stand up to children that like to bang cupboard doors.
