Whether you’re designing your dream kitchen for your new home, or remodeling your current kitchen, it is essential to choose the right wood species for your cabinets. Selecting good quality material can completely change your kitchen’s aesthetics.
If you’re looking for a versatile, durable material that can accommodate various cabinet styles, maple wood might just be the best choice for you.
Here’s what you need to know about maple wood cabinets.
Maple wood’s ever-persistent popularity undeniably lies in its versatility. Thanks to its naturally pale honey color, light mineral streaks, and fine texture, it’s a perfect base for just about any type of finish, paint, or glaze.
Maple can be stained in a variety of shades such as grey, light or dark brown, white, ivory, and black, just to name a few of the more popular cabinet colors.
If you prefer to go for a more unique look in your kitchen, the versatile maple will give you plenty of space to experiment with more unusual colors - you don’t need to shy away from those blues or greens!
Native to North America, and widespread in forests across the US, it is one of the most accessible wood species. It is often used for furniture manufacturing, and it is more durable than other hardwoods, including birch and oak.
If you’re looking for a classic shaker style cabinet design, maple can suit your needs just as well as if you were aiming for a modern, frameless European style cabinet.
You can pair your maple wood cabinets with dark granite countertops and neutral colored flooring for a cozy feel. For a more rustic and organic look, leave the wood in its natural color and state, and simply treat it with a clear protective varnish. If modern is more your style, paint them white and pair them with a beautiful marble or quartz countertop.
It’s your kitchen, so don’t be afraid to execute your ideas!
