If you are putting in solid wood kitchen cabinets then you have made a really good decision for your kitchen remodel. The reason I say this is b because typically solid wood kitchen cabinets are far more lasting than other types of cabinets. If you purchase premade cabinets that are not solid wood, they tend to degrade faster. On the other hand, solid wood kitchen cabinets can cost a little more money, so you want to be sure that you can fit them in your budget. The way I look at it is why not spend the extra money for a longer lasting element in your kitchen design?
