Wood kitchen cupboards come in a variety of colors, but the same basics of black white and grey can be applied to the shade of wood. For example, darker woods will show scratches easier, but they will not show dirt as well.

There are several ways that you can change the color and sheen of your wood in order to bring the finished product more in line with your vision.

Painting is also an option; adding a base coat will also prevent moisture from warping or rotting your cupboards.

Before a homeowner begins picking out new kitchen cabinets, he or she should know the exact layout of the kitchen. Measurements should be taken, and an overall design theme should be chosen. This will make the ordering process much more streamlined. Standard lower cabinets should be 24 inches deep and 36 inches tall, while upper cabinets are usually at least 12 inches deep and 18 inches above the counter. However, these measurements are only a guideline and can be customized.
When new cabinets are chosen, this gives the homeowner the freedom to consider various layouts in addition to the type of wood they‘d like to include the elusive bamboo cabinet. Bamboo is very strong and beautiful, and the top choice for cabinets, flooring and more within today‘s modern home.
For inspiration, look back on the Shaker movement. This is when the cabinets became more popular than ever, but that is not all that was created. The Shaker movement consisted of all kinds of chairs, etc. based on the belief that less is more. Merely browsing through pictures from the Shaker movement will help give anyone ideas on how to add style while maintaining simplicity.
