Premium versus regular cherry (P&F)?
We are doing a whole new kitchen as part of a renovation project on our 100 year old home. Our designer is a plain and fancy dealer and is giving what she indicates is a substantial discount over "retail" pricing for plain and fancy. We want to use natural cherry cabinets and soapstone countertops with white subway tile backsplash, heart pine floors, and stainless appliances. The kitchen us fairly large and I had specified "premium" cherry and got a bit of sticker shock. The regular cherry is something like 30% less. Does anyone have info as to the difference in the Plain and Fancy line? I want to avoid a lot of pulpwood/sapwood and prefer a more uniform look.
Any info appreciated!
