Inexpensive WoodWhat it is: Light- to medium-toned hardwoods, such as maple (shown) and birch. Oak, which has a slightly coarser grain, is also an affordable option.
Pros: Thanks to their strength and uniform grains, these popular varieties take paint well. Maple and oak mellow in color as they age.
Cons: Birch and maple may not absorb stains as evenly as midrange and expensive woods.
Cost: Averages $2,350 for a 10-by-10-foot room (stock). Semicustom rooms range from $2,500 to $9,000; custom, from $7,200 to $10,000.
