Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinet Doors: Solid wood is another option when choosing material for your kitchen cabinet doors. Solid wood is a more expensive alternative and it is usually harder to maintain. Solid wood usually contracts and expands due to heat and humidity which leads to cracks in the furniture. If you go for solid wood, you will need to monitor it frequently. Solid wood is not recommended for places with high humidity. Examples of solid wood used include Mahogany, Cherry, Oak, Maple, and Walnut.
If you are a fan of antique reproductions or require intricate details being carved into your furniture, solid wood is a great choice because it allows for easy carvings and ornamentations.
