When it comes to cabinetry, there are many factors to consider. Size, shape, stain, location, knobs and pulls– where does it end? One of the things you should think about before considering any of those other features is what material you’ll be building your cabinets out of. There are all sorts of woods out there that make beautiful cabinetry, cedar included. Cedar cabinetry is just one of the many types of cabinetry that we offer here at Houser Cabinet Shop. If you’re thinking of cedar cabinets for your home or business, we would like to offer some of the advantages cedar has over other types of wood.
- First, cedar does not rot. Because of the area where cedar grows, it is used to withstanding hot and humid conditions without affecting the integrity of the wood itself. This makes is a great wood choice for cabinetry that will be in hot and humid areas such as bathrooms, steam rooms, around hot tubs, and even in kitchens. In addition to its ability to withstand heat, it also repels many different pests and insects.
- Second, cedar cabinets can be stained in any color with great results. Because cedar doesn’t contain a lot of sap or pitch, it takes on stain very well. Cedar cabinetry also contains very little to no grain to the wood, which many people prefer when it comes to cabinetry.
- Finally, cedar cabinets won’t rot, warp, or swell when confronted with water. This makes cedar a perfect cabinetry choice for humid or moist areas.
