Cherry Kitchen Cabinets
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.
All types of wood will mature with time, and this is especially true for cherry wood. With age, the finish on cherry cabinets will slowly mellow to a rich, darker tone. This is a highly sought after quality and many homeowners choose cherry cabinets to watch this evolution.
CliqStudios.com offers cherry cabinets in the Rockford, Dayton, Carlton, and Fairmont styles.

Characteristics of Cherry Wood
Cherry is a tight, close-grained wood that can contain pin knots and curly graining. These natural variations in the wood add character and personality to cherry’s true beauty.
- Grain Variation
- Pin knots & Color Variation
- Multiple Color Variations
The natural characteristics described below are normal and should not be considered defects:
- Small sap pockets, pin knots, and streaks
- Color ranges from pale yellow sapwood to deep reddish brown heartwood, with occasional shades of white, green, pink, or even grey
- Staining reveals subtle variations of color that typically darken over time
- Slightly more inclined to accept nicks and bumps than other woods
- Variations within a single door and among adjacent cabinets
Note: All veneer wood products react differently to stain, paint, and glaze processes. Applied side panel material (veneer) does not have the same character traits as solid hardwood and may vary slightly in color, graining, sheen, and tone depths.
