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.
There are nearly 300 varieties of oak throughout the world. At least 50 varieties grow in North America. Most oak is divided into one of two types or families: white oak and red oak. White oak tends to be less porous and more durable. It is believed by many to have a better color than red oak, and for this reason it is often preferred for furniture and kitchen cabinets. White oak has a finer texture and a more prominent figure. It is more resistant to moisture and fungus. This is a major reason oak kitchen cabinets are so popular. Red oak tends to have a reddish cast and a coarser texture.
Oak is a household name when it comes to home furniture and furnishing for the excellent quality that it comes in, providing homes that innate strength for beauty that lasts for many years. Oak is a popular hardwood because of its sturdiness and compared with other options, it has greater density. In busy kitchens, consistently changing temperature and moisture levels are common as well as all the spills and mess of food preparation and cooking. With proper sealing, a cabinetry collection manufactured from such hardwood will efficiently stand the test of time.
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.
When it comes to cabinetry I simply love to stain and varnish them each and every opportunity I get. I really enjoy taking my time and savoring every moment of it. From preparation to staining and varnishing to completion, I truly enjoy this special task and I guess it is because of my love for wood. Whether it's cheery, cypress, mahogany, birch, pine, red oak, white oak, walnut, pecan, or any other species; I love wood! In my opinion wood is in a class of its own and nothing else even comes remotely close. But sometimes wood needs a little something extra to bring out its beauty and charm--its grace and stateliness. And that is why we stain and varnish it to help bring out its natural elegance and splendor.
