With its pin knots, sap pockets, and lovely grain variations, cherry is a classic favorite for those who love the comfort and character of hardwood. It makes a kitchen ooze love and warmth, and looks gorgeous in a variety of cabinet styles. Ranging from pale yellow to deep reddish browns with occasional shades of white, green, pink or gray, cherry has a timeless feel, and looks rich and deep when stained. As with most hardwood, cherry darkens gradually over time.
