A painted cabinet offers an opaque, crisp finish for homeowners who prefer modern, long-lasting and low-maintenance cabinets. We can paint a tight-grained wood like cherry or maple for an ultra-even finish or a coarse-grained wood like oak to highlight the wood's knots and grains for subtle texture.
A stained finish will highlight the natural beauty of your cabinet's wood by emphasizing its knots, grain and other features. A stain is long-lasting and easy to touch up. Stained finishes complement craftsman or Quaker-style cabinets, and they are an excellent option for homeowners who prefer a traditional cabinet look that still has a touch of color.
A glazed cabinet will emphasize profiled edges, crowning, molding and other details to offer an old-fashioned or farmhouse style look. We offer two kinds of glazing finishes — flooded and penned. A flooded glaze is washed onto the cabinet and then wiped away, leaving a thin layer of glazing to create dimension and detail. A penned glaze is hand-painted in the profiled areas and edges.
If you aren't sure whether you prefer glazes vs. unglazed cabinets, it helps to know a glaze will add dimension. If you prefer a crisp, even finish, a painted or colorful cabinet may better suit your decor style.
If you have a particular cabinet color in mind, our ColorInspire collection can help you bring your vision to life. We offer a wide range of cabinet finish colors from Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore and Valspar. We can paint maple wood or MDF cabinet doors in any color that inspires you! We'll bring personality to your kitchen with a bright, fun finish or a color that perfectly complements your kitchen design plans.
Whether you opt for a bright teal cabinet from our ColorInspire collection or you want to stain or glaze a craftsman cabinet, we'll help you design your dream kitchen. All of our U.S.-made, KCMA-certified cabinets are sustainable and heirloom-quality, ensuring a beautiful finish that will last.
