There are many benefits to choosing a high-quality wood for your cabinet material, including traditional visual appeal, durability and, in some cases, a tendency for the wood to darken and "improve" over time.

Cherry kitchen cabinets capitalize on all of these advantages. They also fall in the medium-to-high range of cost, offering a luxury wood without the exorbitant costs of exotic or imported species like mahogany or ebony.

In terms of appearance, cherry is a very dark wood, so it's a good idea to carefully select any stain you intend to apply, and test on a small sample before applying to the entire cabinet structure.
