Cherry kitchen cabinets are a favorite because of their ability to add warmth and personality. The look of cherry wood complements both contemporary and traditional styling. Cherry is characterized by its red undertones but may vary in color from white to a deep, rich brown. Cherry hardwood is lightweight yet moderately strong and durable. It is known for its uniform, smooth and satiny texture that accepts stain very well.
