When renovating your kitchen, some projects can be more expensive than others can. Sometimes you can be in control of the price, based on design, and sometimes you have no control over how much somethings costs. One example of having a choice would be your kitchen cabinets. You can choose material, stain, size, as well as a variety of other options that will make your cabinets completely customized by you. One material that should be kept in the forefront of your mind should be cherry. Cherry wood kitchen cabinets are a top choice for most homes.
The main reason why cherry wood kitchen cabinets are seen throughout most homes is that they are durable. That can be said about many materials but it is true in cherry. Since cherry is a solid wood, when you make cabinets out of it, you expect them to last, and they will. Many kitchen cabinets these days are made out of pressed wood or particleboard parts and over time, it shows. These materials are not durable and therefore cannot contend with the years of use that we put on our cabinets. When you use a durable, solid wood material for your cabinets, they will stand the test of time as well as save you money in the end since you will not have to replace them as often.
When you picture cherry wood kitchen cabinets, most people think traditional. For most, traditional is not a bad thing. That is our design comfort zone and we work well within that. For others, we enjoy a more modern approach to life and display that in our home. You may think cherry kitchen cabinets are not for you. You will be pleasantly surprised to be wrong. When decorating in a very modern style, in general, it can sometimes come across as cold or sterile. The rich hue of cherry will warm up your home. Along with being traditional, cherry wood kitchen cabinets will look amazing with just about any design idea. Since the grain is consistent and the wood is smooth, cherry will elevate and warm your kitchen and your friends and family will love spending time with you in it. Over time, the sun will enrich the color of your cabinets, making them stand the test of time.
For most, one of the criteria we have when choosing the right material for our home is its ease of cleaning. Life happens excessively quickly to spend a ton of time on cleaning. Fortunately, cherry wood kitchen cabinets are easy to clean. Cabinets of any material can be quickly ruined with years of dirt and oil and grease from hands as well as cooking. As long as you know what type of finish is on your cherry, it will only take a few minutes to keep your cabinets looking the same as the first day they were installed. If you have a wax finish, all you need is dry soft cloth to pick up all of the mess. If you have any scuffs or stains, use steel wool to buff them out and make sure to get them rewaxed twice a year. If you have an oil based finish, using linseed oil on a cloth is recommended to keep those cabinets clean. For tough stains, you can use a mild soap and water but be sure to get any excess water off your cabinets immediately. If you have a polyurethane finish, all you will need is some mild soap and water but make sure to dry them off as soon as you can. If your cabinets are, unfinished all you will need is a dry soft cloth to keep them looking new.
