Maple Kitchen Cabinets
Maple cabinets are the most popular choice for today’s homes because of their toughness and distinct beauty. Maple is a versatile hardwood and can be used in both contemporary and traditional designs. It is predominately white to creamy-white in color, but occasionally contains subtle streaks of reddish brown tones that accent its look. Maple is close-grained, dense, hard, sturdy, and very durable. Maple features uniform graining and a fine texture, which provides a smooth appearance.
CliqStudios.com offers maple cabinets in the Rockford and Dayton, Carlton, Mendota, Cambridge, and Fairmont styles.

Characteristics of the Maple Hardwood
Characteristic markings on maple cabinets may include fine brown lines, wavy or curly graining, bird's eye dots, and mineral streaks. Grain patterns and mineral markings become more pronounced with stain and enrich the attractiveness of maple wood.
- Mineral Streaks
- Stave Planks
- ‘Worm’ Tracks
The natural features described below are normal and should not be considered defects:
- Creamy white, light blonde, or dark reddish-brown tones
- Mineral streaks and worm tracking that will appear darker with stain
- Wavy, curly, bird's eye, or burl graining that will appear darker with stain
- Cabinets in a lighter stain can be expected to yellow over time
- 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.
