When your wood is chosen, you'll need to decide if a fully unfinished look is right for your kitchen, or, alternatively, if you want to paint or stain your new kitchen cabinets. Generally, a fully unfinished look can pair well with a country or rustic kitchen style, but it can also feature well in a range of traditional kitchen styles. If you do choose to finish your kitchen cabinets yourself, you'll want to keep in mind that certain woods accept stain and paint better than others. If it is your plan to stain your unfinished kitchen cabinets, do some research beforehand to ensure that your wood choice will accept the stain and preserve its natural beauty at the same time.
You can also get a brand new look by refacing your cabinets for half the cost of a complete replacement. For a complete replacement though, and if you have the time and patience for it, you can scour thrift stores, cabinetry shops and home improvement stores often for deals on discounted and clearance cabinets. Just be patient until you find what you want.
Finally, if you choose to replace your cabinets entirely or if you're installing brand-new ones, consider buying them completely unfinished, in a "bare wood" state, and then finishing them with stain or paint yourself. You'll save money up front this way, as opposed to paying for finished or semi-finished cabinets.
