A kitchen remodeling project is a great way to upgrade your old cabinets. If you’re going for a modern look, consider lighter shades for your new cabinets – for instance, white oak. While traditional oak designs are deemed old-fashioned, white oak cabinets provide a classy and contemporary look for your kitchen space.
Reliable and Durable
Since your kitchen furniture is exposed to water, steam and scratching every day, you need cabinets made from reliable and durable material. Unlike other types of hardwood, white oak is stronger and resistant to dings and dents. It can also withstand scratches and regular exposure to water. This makes it a top choice for heavily used kitchens. Not to mention, it retains its sophisticated aesthetics without compromising its durability.
Unique Grain Patterns
In the past, red oak cabinets only had one single grain pattern, which is typically produced in flat cuts. White oak, on the other hand, comes in a wide variety of impressive grain patterns. Through rift-cut milling and quarter sawing, quality cabinet makers and remodelers develop eye-catching natural finishes that make for an appealing finish. As such, white oak makes it easier to customize your kitchen.
Trendy Color Schemes
Oak cabinets were all the rage during the 1980s – honey oak in particular. These days, kitchen remodelers prefer lighter color tones to contrast dark appliances. White oak has two different color shades: wheat and green-brown. These hues blend well with a modern kitchen design that’s characterized by neutral colors. It’s also better suited to building in contrast through flooring, countertops and tiles.
Your kitchen is one of the busiest parts of your home, so your cabinets must look stylish and last for a long time. For this reason, choose white oak cabinets.
