It's wonderful to think about having solid wood kitchen cabinets installed in your home. There is nothing quite as heart warming as walking into your kitchen and realizing that you have done everything you can to make this important room of your home even more inviting. When you're ready to do this remodel job, you'll have to decide what type of wood you will be using, along with the style for the doors.
The most popular wood species used in solid wood cabinets are ash, cherry, maple, oak, and birch. Once your wood selection has been made, you will also want to decide the style of the doors. You will even want to decide whether you will be painting the wood cabinets or if you will stain them instead.
When you paint your solid wood kitchen cabinets you will not be able to take advantage of the natural wood grain, but you will have the opportunity to blend it into the rest of the room or use a contrasting color to make them pop. Painted wood cabinets do not have to be made from the very top of the line and most expensive wood so that may be something you can consider. You will still have the benefits that are inherent with wonderful hard wood, but the savings will be dramatic.
Solid wood kitchen cabinets that are custom made really allow the home owner to demonstrate their very own tastes. That means that you get the opportunity to select from among all the different styles of doors, and maybe even invent your own. Just a thought. Hardware styles also make their own statement on wood cabinets so be sure you know what kind of statement you are looking to achieve before making your selection.
While you're at it, don't forget to think about what you are going to be adding to make your solid wood cabinets entertainment friendly. That's right; you will be entertaining a lot in once you have your wonderful new kitchen. For one thing you will want everybody you know to see what you have done and for another thing family and friends will be sure to just happen by to get a look at the results of your creativity.
Many people don't understand the importance of adding attractive wood molding to their wood cabinets as well as throughout the home. What you are doing is adding that little touch which says that the work is finally finished. It also adds an extra bit of architectural detail that helps to stabilize what is already there. By covering up seams, you are not only providing a much better overall effect, you are also helping everything to stay in place more securely. That is after all the entire reason trim has traditionally been used in the first place.
So, what are you waiting for, get your creative juices flowing, and get started remodeling your home with kitchen cabinets. There is no doubt that you will be glad you did.
