When hanging oak kitchen cabinets, there are a few items that must be kept in mind. The first of these is that when removing the old ones, that care is taken not to damage the surface underneath. The wall surface should be flat with no ridges or bumps allowing the new cabinets to be mounted flush.
Oak cabinets can create a truly beautiful and luxurious room. When matched with window and door frames, chair rail, and other trim, as well as kitchen stools, table and chairs, etc. the total effect can be breathtaking. Mixing the right varieties can eliminate sameness and produce a result that is totally unique. This makes oak kitchen cabinets an outstanding choice for your kitchen remodel.
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.
There are two varieties of oak hardwood, namely red oak and white oak. White oak is heavier and harder than red oak. Red oak, opposite to what the name implies, comes in white shades and light to dark reddish brown shades. Red oak contains less grain patterns compared to white oak. The greatest advantage of oak kitchen cabinets is that they can be sanded, cleaned and refinished as per need and the luster of the wood remains the same.
Oak Kitchens: With this wood specie found in abundance in North America, it is no wonder that this has become a common face in the heart of homes. Oak kitchens brandish a facade that is naturally large grained, making up for distinct patterns that change throughout for an exquisite overall look to your kitchen cabinets. The surface also has mineral streaks of black, green and other colors that create a more interesting feel to it. Being porous, this wood type absorbs stains and glazes well helping create a richer look that highlights the display or beautiful grains.
