Along with deciding on the layout and style of your cabinetry, picking the right cabinet finish is a crucial part of putting together the perfect cabinet design for your home. The options are all but limitless, running the gamut from traditional stained finishes through solid paint colors all the way to modern foils and acrylic coatings.
Deciding on the construction technique, door style and overall layout are all key elements to consider when purchasing new cabinets. However, the cabinet finish you choose will likely be the first thing people notice when they see your kitchen or bathroom. Deciding which one is right for your home is a critical step and not one that should be taken lightly.
Benefits of a Factory-Applied Cabinet Finish
As we mentioned in our article on stock, custom, and semi-custom cabinets, one of the major benefits of the lines we carry is a factory-applied cabinet finish. Our manufacturers use modern application systems and strict environmental controls to ensure their cabinets feature beautiful and resilient exteriors that stand up to years of use.
Unlike cabinet finishes produced in small custom shops, factory finishes tend to be very uniform and even in thickness and strength. Using cutting edge equipment and procedures, our manufacturers create tough and gorgeous finishes that are guaranteed for years.
Picking The Right Cabinet Finish
To be clear, choosing the durability and guaranteed quality of factory-applied finishes does NOT mean you will be limited in your choices of color, glazes or other artistic detailing. For example, the Dura Supreme line of cabinetry we carry starts with the traditional techniques of applying and wiping finishes by hand.
This time-honored method enhances the natural beauty of the wood used to construct the cabinet face, doors and drawers. Subtle variations in the grain, absorption rates of the wood, and individual artistic application means each cabinet is one-of-a-kind. This finish is then protected by catalyzed conversion varnish sealers and topcoats in Dura Supreme’s cutting edge cabinet finish facility.
