Cherry is a gorgeous hardwood with a smooth, satiny texture. The grain patterns and colors within a single board can vary quite a bit, so Cherry is not a species to consider if you want a consistent look across all of your cabinets. We think Cherry looks best with a light-to-medium stain, as dark stains mask all of the natural variations in the wood.
As with all woods, be sure to order a door sample in the stain color you are considering. Visit the Let’s Talk About Color page to see why it’s important!
