Cherry cabinetry comes in many colors

Trendy modern stains will turn cherry cabinetry into shades of espresso, mocha, cordovan, cinnamon and crystal. For cherry wood with minimal knots, hues of off-white, gray and green further enhance the wood's aesthetics.

The cost of cherry wood cabinets varies greatly, depending on design and construction. In "ball park" terms, pre-manufactured cherry cabinetry generally costs between $4,000 and $5,000 for a small kitchen. Hand-made, custom, cherry cabinetry can easily cost more than $10,000 for that same small kitchen. Outfit a large kitchen with custom cherry cabinets, and you easily spend tens of thousands of dollars. Raised panels and molding, glazing and hardware upgrades, all boost the ticket price. In general, the more details in the cabinets' design, the higher your price tag.

You can always go faux

Pro tip: If the price point of cherry cabinets is out of range for you, buy cabinets made of maple, red birch or alder wood and have them stained the deep, red color of cherry wood. If done professionally, only you and the contractor will know the difference.
