3 Items to Consider When Choosing Wood for Cabinets, Albemarle, North Carolina

If you’re looking for a simple renovation project to boost the aesthetic appeal and value of your home, replacing dingy, worn cabinets with wooden installations will make interiors look cleaner and more spacious. With so many wood varieties available, it can be difficult to narrow down your choices. Below is a guide for what to consider to help you make a decision. 

What to Keep in Mind When Selecting Cabinet Wood 

1. Who Lives in the House

cabinetsIdeally, wood cabinets should withstand years of wear with minimal damage. Some wood species are more durable than others, so consider who lives in the house when selecting materials. Fixtures can look prematurely old in homes with children, as little ones often slam doors or leave smudgy handprints. Cherry wood is a durable option that can hold up to demands in homes with kids. 

2. The Atmosphere You Want to Create

From traditional to contemporary, cabinets can help set the overall aesthetic of your space. Think about the look you want to achieve when choosing a wood species. With its fine grain and array of color choices, birch can make a space appear more luxurious. Tree knots are visible on pine, so consider it if you want a shabby chic look. White oak is also used to make interiors feel rustic and cozy.

3. How Much You Want to Spend

Think about how much you want to spend on materials, as some wood species are more expensive than others. Oak, for example, is a pricier option but is lauded for its strength and warp-resistant properties. Cherry is also expensive, but the rich coloring can add texture and depth to your space. Pine is less expensive than many options but might need frequent upkeep to stay in top condition.
