Todayís cabinet industry makes use of many types of versatile and gorgeous types of woods. This material is usually used to blend style, class, and strength into one package, and is most of the time used for middle to top of the line hardware. But with all these types available to you, it will be hard to determine which is the one suitable for your needs and purposes, and so here are some tips as to guide you.
Starting on the cheaper end of the spectrum, we have less expensive but more fragile materials such as fiberboard and particleboard. These types of materials are more often than not flexible, softer, and donít handle environmental hazards such as moisture and temperature change as well as their counterparts.
Now, going to the other end of the spectrum, we have hardwoods; the ultimate combination of power and softness. These types of woods are traditionally used for top of the line furniture, and by furniture, I mean any type of wooden furnishing you can install in your rooms, let it be dressers, cupboards, or even tables. Cabinets particularly benefit from being made of hardwood, seeing as how they need to not only be stylish and complementing the kitchen, but they also need to be sturdy, resistant to any external nuisances, and provide vast amounts of storage space. When speaking in aesthetic terms, thereís a kind of hardwood to please any crowd: there are lighter woods such as oak and pine, darker woods such as walnut and richer woods of the likes of rosewood and cherry.

Also, itís important to note that by investing in hardwood cabinetry, youíll end up saving money since it proudly stands the test of time, eliminating the need for constant renovations. If you find new cabinets to be a bit too expensive, then look around, and youíll find that hardwood cabinets also come in ready-to-assemble format, which drastically lowers their price.
