The advantages: Oak wood is strong and durable. It has a fairly uniform and open grain appearance available in several colors: white, yellow and red. This wood is cheaper than maple and cherry.
Disadvantages: The oak wood has a very marked grain, and everyone does not necessarily appreciate this appearance. In fact, false laminated wood often mimics the grain of the oak; so people often tend to think that wood is cheap.
Pros: Pine and the cheapest wood with a rustic appearance.
Disadvantages: The pine is a soft wood that can cut easily. This wood also has a large number of knots, so be sure you will like this style for your cabinets.
Pros: Maple is a hardwood, which means it is durable. With very slight variations in its grain, its appearance is neutral and pleasant.
Disadvantages: On varnishes, the maple grain variations may seem cloudy, or “blurred”.
The cherry tree
The advantages: The cherry tree is the preferred choice of many owners. It is a hardwood, which makes it robust and durable, and its grain is very beautiful.
Disadvantages: The cherry tree has significant variations in its color. It is very important to see the cherry wood in large quantities, and not just a door sample, if you choose the wood in a light or natural shade. Cherry is also the most expensive type of wood.
Advantages: The hickory offers many similar qualities to cherry wood, but not the same expenses. Check that the hickory works with the design of your kitchen.
Disadvantages: There are many variations in the color of the wood between light and dark, so it is important that you check beforehand if it fits your kitchen.
