Types of Oak
Oak kitchen cabinets require very little maintenance. Because they are so durable, you won't have to repair them as often as you would other types of cabinets. They are also mold and mildew resistant, which is important especially near the sink and dishwasher where you are likely to encounter the most water and moisture can accumulate. Because oak is considered to be a hardwood, it will be able to withstand the heavy usage in a busy kitchen without becoming easily scratched or dented.
You can even stain your new oak cabinets or cabinet doors to add versatility. Be careful, however, when staining new doors that they will match the rest of the cabinets. Here you would probably want to stain both the doors and cabinets. Making sure they match is the key.
Oak has long been a preferred wood for many areas of the home and the kitchen is no exception. Oak is known for its durability and longevity as well as natural beauty. If you want a whole new look for your kitchen, consider refacing the cabinets in oak.
