Is Maple a Good Choice for Kitchen Cabinets?

Maple kitchen cabinets bring an eye-catching elegance to your kitchen with a fine, smooth grain and uniform texture.  A versatile, durable hardwood, maple varies in color from nearly white to slightly rosy brown.

Your finely crafted maple cabinets from DirectBuy will provide you and your family years of enjoyment in your kitchen. You can have a well-organized, efficient space for all your cooking and entertaining needs as well as the beauty and style maple offers.

Create Dramatic Effects By Glazing Your Maple Cabinets

To deepen the coloration and create dramatic dark accents, you can add character to your maple kitchen cabinets by hand-glazing with a chocolate glaze. To add light contrasts or to lighten the tone of your maple kitchen cabinets, you can glaze with a vanilla glaze. Hand-glazing your maple cabinets adds character and creates a rich aged look to your cabinets.

Unique Characteristics of Maple Cabinets

Maple is very durable and versatile, taking any color of stain well. Mineral or sugar streaks occur naturally in maple, and can vary from piece to piece. This natural variation is more noticeable in lighter stains.

Grain: Usually straight-grained and sometimes found with highly figured bird's-eye or burl grain. Bird's-eye resembles small spherical or elliptical figures while burls are clusters of round curls.

Characteristics: Heavy, hard, strong, tough, stiff, close-grained with an even texture. Maple has excellent resistance to abrasion and indentation, making it a good choice for flooring and cabinets in addition to cutting boards and countertops.

Finishing: Takes stain adequately and polishes well.

Maple Wood

The Maple that we use is from the Collins Companies and is guaranteed to come from a sustainable source, one that will provide wood products while also providing wildlife habitat, clean air, recreation, and natural beauty for generations to come.

Each piece of furniture is built to order with the selected wood. The Joinery uses only high-grade lumber, and each builder hand-selects the boards based on color and grain match.
