I am remodeling my kitchen, and I have Seacrest2 Dawn Cabinets in them. They are a light colored Birch cabinet. I will not be changing the present cabinets, but instead, I will be adding a wall to an open kitchen, and filling that wall with cabinets.
One cabinet maker has said rather than ordering me the additional cabinets, he can make the same cabinets for me in Maple, and match the color with my present Birch cabinets. I plan to take off one of the cabinet doors, and go by his shop for comparison.
The question I have is this: even if he can match the color fairly well, would it be a mistake to add Maple cabinets to a kitchen that is already half Birch?
His logic is that he can make custom cabinets that will be better than the builders grade Birch cabinets that are in the new home.
Any advice would be helpful.
