Why Are Kitchen Cabinets So Expensive

Wood is expensive. The wood species usually determines the price of the cabinets. There are some species that are more standard, such as Maple, Poplar, Hickory, and Red Oak; and there are some that are more expensive, such as Alder, White Oak, and Walnut. There is also cherry wood, but if you ever need to replace a cherry wood door on a cabinet, you might end up with a different color because cherry wood, though nice and luxurious, changes color over time.
