You are in the market for new kitchen cabinets but are undecided about which type to choose. This is understandable because there are so many options out there to choose from, and you don’t want to invest in cabinetry you might soon tire of. Natural wood cabinets are¬†classic and constructed to last a very long time, but which type of wood will offer the most benefits for your home and your family’s needs?

Hickory is an option to consider because of its colorful, rustic look and its unrivaled strength and durability. Designer Cabinets, Granite & Tile would like to provide a brief overview of the advantages of hickory cabinets and give you some more detail on why this material continues to be one of the best choices for your new kitchen cabinets.

What Makes Hickory Perfect for Your Home?

If you had to rank the cabinet characteristics from most to least important, many homeowners would agree that the toughness factor ranks highest on their list. Hickory is a very strong wood, plus it is often sealed with a protective coat to lock out moisture during the post-manufacturing phase, which doubly increases its longevity and overall lifespan. When you need unparalleled strength and moisture-resistance, hickory cabinets should be one of your top material choices.

The beauty of hickory in its natural state also means you do not need to hassle with staining or painting either. Its consistent grain pattern does make the wood quite compatible with a wide range of color choices though. For staining options, the most popular choices tend to be light, natural, briarwood, ebony, auburn, sierra and linen.

The widespread availability of hickory cabinets means two things to you as the consumer. One, you can find them just about anywhere, and two, they are very affordable. Contact Designer Cabinets, Granite & Tile to discuss hickory cabinetry with one of our kitchen remodel experts.
