When it comes to finish options for your new kitchen cabinets in Corona CA, there are seemingly endless possibilities to choose from. Whether you like the natural look of plain hardwood or a rich, deep cherry color to bring out the elegant tones of the room, finishes abound in all types, styles and colors.
Not sure where to start? You’ll first have to consider the style of your kitchen, what finish would best complement it, and what your budget allows.
Perhaps you adore the wood you’ve chosen for your cabinetry and want to showcase it. In that case, staining is a great idea. This will give it a nice color and sheen yet allow the natural grain and texture of the wood to shine through. You can choose solid color stains that hide imperfections or you can choose more transparent stains that show off the wood’s natural beauty.
Whether you simply need a refresh on existing cabinets or you’re completely replacing them all, stain is an ideal option that matches virtually any style. But just because you’re staining doesn’t mean you should skip the glaze. Glazing highlights the one-of-a-kind features inherent in the design of your cabinetry. It’s basically a transparent coating used after stain or paint has been brushed on, adding more depth and character to the look of your cabinets.
As you may already realize, the installation of new cabinets can get expensive, which is why many homeowners opt for updating their existing cabinets a fresh coat of paint. With many colors available, your options in terms of color and style are far reaching. However, you can’t just slap on a coat of paint and call it a day. First, you must sand off the previous finish completely and then clean the cabinets. Only then can you apply the paint.
You could also top off the paint job with glaze as you would with stain. Just be aware it may soften the look of your chosen color.
A trendy paint option these days is to apply a distressed, vintage look with milk paint. This type of finish does indeed contain milk, which acts as a binder. It’s a non-toxic and environmentally-friendly paint finish that gives your budget a break as well.
Other affordable options include polyester and lacquer finishes, available in anything from matte to high gloss. You can apply this easily with a sprayer to ensure even coverage. However, this finish requires more maintenance than the other types.
High gloss is increasing in popularity, a trend last seen in the 1970s. It’s ideal for a contemporary kitchen with flat cabinetry fronts more so than for a traditional kitchen. Also known as ultra-high gloss or 100 percent gloss, this type gives off a shiny finish that reflects light, most popular in white gloss kitchens for its modern appeal.
Hardware will provide the finishing touches to your kitchen cabinets in Corona CA. This is a small yet crucial detail that can make or break your whole set of cabinets. You may want to go with darker hardware if you have a lighter finish and metallic hardware for a darker finish. From round pulls to full door handles, you have many options available to you in terms of hardware. This is where your style can truly come out.
