Both cherry and oak come with distinct advantages. Cherry mellows with age to create a warm, beautiful tone. Oak's iconic wood grain pattern responds well to stain, allowing for customization. Both woods are dense and heavy, meaning they stand up to years of use in any kitchen.

If you can't choose between cherry or oak, check out different styles of the same brand for a closer comparison. For example, American Woodmark Cabinets offer a number of collections in both cherry and oak: their Alexandria, Townsend, Charlottesville, Newport and Ashland collections feature both materials. In the Alexandria collection, a 42-inch kitchen wall cabinet in cherry costs $869 at a Texas retail store as of February 2011, but the same cabinet in oak costs $584. While exact prices will vary by location, you can see the big price difference between the two materials.

Cherry oak cabinets can revitalize your kitchen

If you love the deep, rich look of cherry and the quality and density of oak, there's a way to have both. Because oak cabinets respond so well to stain, a cherry-colored coat can result in the finish and material you're looking for--cherry oak cabinets that truly offer the best of both materials. If you already have oak cabinets, a cherry stain can transform the look of your kitchen without a big renovation.

No matter which material or finish you choose, spend some time browsing your options. With a range of manufacturers offering distinctive styles and finishes, a little research can mean enjoying the perfect cabinets for your kitchen.
