Please help - I must choose cabinets ASAP!
Hello! I'm re-asking a question from a couple days ago. We're building a house, and we must finalize our selections very soon. Our builder uses Timberlake cabinets, which are the same as American Woodmark and Shenandoah. We prefer raised panel, and there are 2 choices the builder offers in our price range - Cumberland (veneer center panel, full overlay) and Wyoming (solid wood door, standard overlay).
I'd prefer solid wood doors and full overlay, but that's over our budget. So my dilemma is I either have to sacrifice solid wood doors or full overlay. Is standard overlay outdated? Our current cabinets are standard overlay, golden oak from the early 90s! Is full overlay a better choice for resale value?
We know that we're going with the Cherry Bordeaux stain. When using a dark stain on cherry, do you even notice the gradual color darkening? Do you think the veneer center panel will eventually look noticeably different from the solid wood rails/stiles?
Thanks for your help!
