Inexpensive woods that look elegant and contemporary.

When you’re designing your kitchen, there are endless things to spend money on. You’ll have to budget for appliances and flooring; faucets and cookware. When it comes to kitchen cabinets, you can choose inexpensive woods that look elegant and contemporary. There’s no need to spend too much money in order to get cabinets that are as functional as they are appealing. Choose woods that match the rest of the decorating scheme you have planned for your kitchen. Remember to keep it comfortable and inviting, especially if the kitchen is the place where your friends and family gather.

Maple and birch are both good choices when it comes to kitchen cabinets. These hardwoods are on the lighter side, which means you can easily incorporate other colors and patterns into your kitchen décor. These light woods will go well with black or white appliances, as well as stainless steel. They make a great base for paint too. If you’re planning to add some color or detail to your kitchen, both maple and birch will absorb paint easily. The wood is strong, and the uniform grains make them easy to work with. If you’re worried about how they age, you can expect these woods to lighten up a bit the longer you have them.

Maintenance is important when you choose woods like maple and birch. They won’t absorb or deflect stains and spots as well as other surfaces. Still, your kitchen cabinets will look fantastic, and you won’t have to worry about overspending. Unless you’re creating custom cabinets from woods like maple and birch, you’ll be able to design and install these cabinets for less than you expect.
