When planning the kitchen of their dreams, homeowners in Denver Colorado often wonder if they should select painted or stained cabinets for their kitchen or bath remodel. There is no right answer. The choice of stained or painted cabinets depends on the look and feel that a homeowner desires. Both paint and stain have pluses and minuses. The choice really depends on the style statement that you would like to make.
Paint offers a smooth surface with options for a glossy, matte or satin finish. There are unlimited color options, and paint can be applied to solid wood, plywood and medium-density fiberboard. Paint hides the features or grain of the wood used to make a cabinet.
Unlike paint, stain allows the natural beauty of wood to shine through. While paints come in every color in the rainbow, stain options are not as plentiful. The most popular stain choices among homeowners in Denver are brown, red and gold tones. Occasionally, we specify kitchen cabinets with blue, green or grey stains.
There is a cost difference between painted and stained cabinets. Paint is typically 15% more due to a more labor-intensive application process to cover the entire surface of the cabinet to achieve a smooth, clean, consistent look.
Combining both painted and stained cabinets is another option that is quite popular with our remodeling clients in Denver.
