Cabinets - poplar vs maple, painting on site
Just when I thought I had asked all my questions, I now have some questions about my kitchen cabs. They will be custom made by a cabinet maker whose work is beautiful and price is so reasonable. He mentioned the cabs would be made of poplar (I want painted), but my contractor wants maple (which the cab guy can do). What's the difference and is one better than the other??
My second question is about painting on site. My cab guy doesn't paint his cabs. That will need to happen after he installs them. My contractor is worried that the finish won't be as good. Any advice on painting on site? I am not doing it - will hire a professional painter. I have a few names given by good friends to check into.
Thanks - once again - for helping me through this!!! M
