Since cherry is slightly softer than oak and maple, it’s more likely to scratch or dent.

This material is more expensive than the aforementioned wood types, but it’s still more affordable than high-end furniture woods such as mahogany or ebony.

One distinctive feature of cherry wood is its aging process – exposed to sunlight it darkens over the years.

During this process you cherry cabinets will develop a deeper, darker red tone.

When deciding on the color of your cabinets, try to keep this in mind, and choose a hue that you would still love, even if it got a shade or two darker.

Whatever shade you choose, we can guarantee that beautiful cherry wood cabinets will make your kitchen look more spacious and inviting.
