Once the choice is made to go with new bamboo cabinets or other styles, there are many more choices that one will come across. For example, one can choose custom cabinets or they can go with stock models. The difference here is that custom cabinets are built specifically for the space, while stock come as is. It goes without saying that custom will take longer, but of course there are many more options in relation to materials, finishes, designs and hardware.
There are also what is called "semi-custom" cabinets. They are made to the size requirements given but the manufacturer makes them in predetermined increments. Sometimes, a spacer is necessary to hide unused wall areas, so anyone that wants to utilize the most space possible should avoid this option. However, these are a bit less expensive than custom bamboo cabinets.
Oak is the most utilized; it is lightweight, somewhat water-resistant, and the grain stands out even after staining. It is often used to enhance "country" or "rustic" motifs, but it can be used solely for decorative style, too. Birch and ash are also popular; these woods are very light in color, and they hold stains quite well. Pine, a very yellow wood, is favored in French and English decorative styles, but it is very soft and prone to nicks.
For a graceful touch, consider footed and arced pulls which come in a variety of finishes, in glass and ceramic. Each type creates a different feel and is solely based on personal preference. Traditional and classic they are perfect for shaker cabinets. Switch up colors to keep interest within the kitchen and have fun.

Staining is a popular option used to bring out the natural color of the wood. Many modern brands come with a sealant that prevents moisture from seeping into your wood. Painting is also an option; adding a base coat will also prevent moisture from warping or rotting your cupboards. Thermofoil-a process in which a plastic material is attached to the surface of the cabinet-wards off water, as well as unwanted discoloration and minor scrapes and blemishes.
