What wood species for kitchen cabinets are best for resale?I'm remodeling my kitchen, but trying to do so on a small budget. I've looked at cabinets in cherry, maple, alder and birch. My neighborhood is made up of 1960 ranch houses that are 1500-2000 sq ft, valued around $200-250k. Does the wood species matter that much? In a lower value neighborhood, could I install birch or alder cabinets instead of cherry or maple and still get roughly the same result? There's a big variance in pricing between some of those.Put simply, is it more about the door style/amenities or the wood species? Are there stylistic elements for cabinets that are more important?For the rest of the kitchen, I'm putting in granite counters, double bowl 60/40 ss undermount sink, porcelain tile and recessed lighting, so the rest of the kitchen is already planned.
