Cherry wood cabinets will give any kitchen a truly timeless look. If you are looking for beautifully stained cabinets with amazing wood grain, cherry may be your best bet. In this blog, we will discuss some of the reasons cherry is just about as nice as it gets.
A Beauty Among Wood Species
If you are leaning more towards stain versus paint, cherry wood cabinets are a popular choice. The natural color of cherry can vary from a reddish tone to a lighter, blonde color. Because of this, you may not even need a stain color for your cabinets, as a simple clear coat will look great. Another thing that people tend to love about cherry is the unique wood grain. Someone who really appreciates wood for what it is can recognize the beauty in the grain present in cherry. Every piece is different but when it all comes together, you will have something very special. With a grain like that, you want to showcase it. This means that you will want to steer clear of colors that are too dark, otherwise you may as well go with something like maple.
Stay Classy, With Cherry Wood Cabinets
Cherry is one of the more expensive wood types there is. Unless you want a reddish brown color, or to show off the natural beauty, you may need to look elsewhere. Darker brown and black stains will only cover your cherry wood cabinets grain and you will not be able to tell exactly what species they are. If you are spending the money for cherry, you want to be able to tell that your cabinets are in fact cherry. One thing you need to be aware of when picking a color for cherry is that whatever you stain (cabinets, flooring, furniture) will likely darken with age. Imagine what each color you look at will look like darker, because within a few years, it will be just that.
A Timeless Choice
Cherry wood is a popular choice throughout the furniture industry. It is a softer wood, so this makes it easier to shape. Carved pieces of furniture are often cherry because of this. Ornate pieces can be carved out of cherry, much easier than something like maple. Cherry may not be as strong or durable as maple but it can certainly get the job done. Overall, we think that cherry wood cabinets offer a beautiful, classic look to any kitchen. They should definitely be considered throughout your remodel.
