Poplar wood for everything
Our builder has poplar wood spec'ed out for everything. Stained kitchen cabinets, stained trim, painted solid doors (although I may opt for stained), all bathroom vanities. Poplar seems to be somewhat popUlar around here.
We have two young kids who are very hard on everything. I'm a little nervous about the softness of poplar and how it will hold up, but the builder thinks it will be fine. I don't want everything to look terrible in 5 years.
Can anyone share their experiences?
