If you're trying to decide between wood species for your new kitchen cabinets and a rustic or country kitchen style appeals to you, pine kitchen cabinets may be a great choice.

If pine kitchen cabinets are right for you, you'll have a couple of sub-species to choose from. The most common are knotty pine—a familiar choice in country kitchens—and white pine, which also maintains a rustic look but doesn't show as much trademark visible knotting as its cousin.

Both types have their benefits—if you're looking for a truly rustic, traditionally country kitchen look, knotty pine will definitely give you that down-home feel. On the other hand, if you'd like a slightly simpler, lighter feel in your kitchen, white pine will give you more of a blank slate to work with, and potentially make it easier to choose other design elements like countertops, flooring and furniture.

One thing to keep in mind whichever type of pine kitchen cabinets you choose is that pine is a very soft wood. It dents and scratches fairly easily, so you'll want to exercise caution around low cabinets in particular, and install any hardware carefully as well.
