If you've settled on wood kitchen cabinets, your next choice will be to determine which species of wood to use. Maple is extremely popular due to its intricate, attractive grain; it's a tough wood that is resistant to scratching or cracking. Cherry has a rich tone and will darken over time with exposure to light, and it's also softer than maple, making it easier to create custom designs from cherry. Oak is a popular choice as it's abundant and inexpensive; it has a unique grain and strong composition. Lastly, birch rates highly as a choice for kitchen cabinets because of its smooth texture and its ability to hold stain.

Once you've settled on the wood you'd like to use for your cabinets, your next choice will be whether you want stock, semi-stock or custom wood cabinets. Stock cabinets can be purchased fully pre-fabricated and are the least expensive option. Semi-stock cabinets have a basic design that can be slightly customized by the homeowner or customized by the retailer and then installed—these are slightly more expensive and take longer to produce. Finally, custom cabinets are the most expensive option, but they offer total freedom in terms of design choices.
