Cherry wood cabinets work well with bold color choices, and the warmth of cherry wood may allow you to choose cooler color tones in some circumstances without making your kitchen seem uninviting. Cherry wood cabinets work fine in any setting, from the traditional to the most modern. Cherry wood holds a distinguished place in history. Since olden times, the Americans used cherry wood for making traditional furniture and cabinets. Cherry wood is the favorite of wood workers because it is very easy to work with hand instruments. The cherry sapwood has a white creamy look. The heartwood ranges from deep red to light red tinged with a brown color and contains color streaks of yellow, pink or green. Tiny knots or holes are common on the surface. When exposed for a long time, the light rays and oxygen in the hardwood interact thereby producing a lustrous and rich hue of color.
The sophisticated cherry wood cabinets are finished in a normal to dark red finish to display the mahogany tones. Cherry wood finds expression in different types of styling such as Mission, Country and Shaker as well as in certain traditional types of styling. You can create your own style but the final impact depends on the type of wood you select. To conclude, cherry wood cabinets are recommended for that ultimate look and feel.
