One of the most important decisions made when remodeling a kitchen is the material and style of the cabinets. Particularly in North America and parts of Europe it is natural to ask if oak kitchen cabinets are a good choice. The answer is very simple, oak cabinets are always a good choice.
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.
If you're looking to give your kitchen a new and interesting look, then by all means you should consider giving your kitchen cabinets a complete makeover. Some makeovers do little to transform your kitchen into an exciting and lovable place to gather for food and fun, but giving your kitchen cabinets a completely new look will definitely make a statement. And beautiful red oak cabinets neatly stained and carefully varnished will not only make a beautiful impression but they will also extend a warm and gracious invitation to all your family and friends.
Believe it or not, there are some folk out there who do not appreciate the beauty and the richness of red oak wood and there are some people out there who really don't appreciate oak wood at all. But I'm not one of them and over the years I have come to love and revere oak wood in general and particularly red oak wood. In this article I am going to give you a step by step guide to help you stain and varnish your red oak cabinets. I will be focusing on new cabinets but the same procedures are in order for existing red oak cabinets with the exception being that all existing coatings on your cabinets must be completely removed before you can re-stain them. Once again, I cannot stress this point enough; all previous coatings-stains, urethane, paints and primers must be totally removed from your cabinets before you can begin your re-staining and re-varnishing system.
Maple Kitchens: The strongest contender of Oak when it comes to popularity is Maple kitchens. Maple kitchen cabinets are the exact opposite of Oak when it comes to grains. The tight, even grains of maple makes up for a fluid finish that is as smooth in looks as it is to touch. Naturally light, the cabinetry collection for wood-toned glazes that you can choose from ranges from honey to cinnamon. This can also be stained to brandish a darker looking timber such as espresso, painted any color you desire, or even finished to look like other hardwood choices such as mahogany and cherry.
