Your cabinets can be installed in a natural wood state or can be stained and painted to match your personality. Choosing the ideal stain or paint can make a difference in the overall appearance of your home. Rasmussen Custom Cabinetry offers many stain colors, paint colors, finishes, and sealants that can help elevate your cabinets. All of our cabinets can be customized to any color, shape, size, or wood type.
Painting or staining your cabinets can help you keep the structural integrity of the doors for longer. Paint can help reduce the appearance of scratches and stains will help reduce fading from UV light.
Choosing A Natural Stain
The options for stain continue to expand and the industry grows. Stain is the best way to keep the natural beauty of your wood cabinets while still achieving a customized look. If you want a natural appearance for your home, stain is the best option for wood cabinets.
A popular option for cabinets is oil-based stains. These stains help to enhance the natural grain of the wood, rather than cover it. This way you can still have a more rustic look inside the home, and alter the color to your exact specifications. Oil-based stains soak into the porous wood and last for generations.
A water-based stain is a better option if you want your stain to dry quickly. Because it uses fewer chemicals as a base, it is more environmentally friendly and these cabinets are easily recyclable. Water-based stains are suitable for lighter wood species.
Glaze finishes are also available to accentuate certain aspects of your cabinet without completely covering its natural appearance. They can work as a top-coat sealant for the wood as well to make them better protected from dents, scratches, and other damage.
Paint Options For Cabinets
There are many different types of paint that can be applied to cabinets. Each one can provide a different finish and desired look. Paint should be used if you don’t want any of the wood color underneath to shine through. Paint is also the best way to obtain the perfect color match because the color of the wood underneath will not change the undertone of the color.
Some common types include:
Depending on the needs of your kitchen, bathroom, or office, certain paints will work better for these rooms. Chalk paint can be written on and has a more soft texture. It is a great option for a section of cabinets in your kitchen. Acrylic paint provides a smooth finish and is more resistant to stains and moisture. Using acrylic paint on your bathroom cabinets will help limit mold or bacteria growth.
Painting your cabinets will also make your cabinets easier to clean because they wipe down easily with a damp cloth.
