When designing or redesigning your kitchen, the kitchen cabinets are usually the focal point of the entire space. The finish you choose for them is one of the biggest decisions you will make in the whole process. If you are redesigning your kitchen and want to refinish your existing cabinets, it can save you a pretty penny. However, you are now faced with a big decision; paint or stain? Both have their pros and cons. All Painting & Restoration is here to talk about the different benefits each has to offer to help you make the right decision for your kitchen.
Painting Your Kitchen Cabinets
Benefits of Painting Your Cabinets– For homeowners that are wanting a flawless, sleek look on their kitchen cabinets, free from the imperfections found in the grain of the wood, painting will give you just that. You also have hundreds of colors to choose from when you choose paint. Literally, the possibilities are endless. When you have cabinets made from medium-density fiberboard, you can’t tell a difference between them and cabinets made from solid wood when you paint them.
Cons to Painted Kitchen Cabinets– Just like with anything, there are also cons to painting your cabinets. When you cover your cabinets with paint, you are hiding their natural beauty. Another consideration to make is the cost. Painting is usually more expensive to have done. The job needs to be done professionally to give you a durable paint job. They are difficult to touch up so you don’t want to attempt this on your own and end up with paint chipping off the cabinets soon after painting.
Staining Your Kitchen Cabinets
Benefits to Staining Your Kitchen Cabinets– Obviously, a major benefit to staining your cabinets is the natural beauty that is showcased in the wood grain. Depending on the type of wood your cabinets are made of, the patterns in the wood grain can be spectacular. You also don’t have to touch up stained cabinets like you do with paint. When you do have to touch them up, it is easy to blend it in with the older stain. Staining your cabinets is also the cost efficient choice. You won’t spend as much money on the finish as you would with paint.
Cons to Stained Cabinets– If your cabinets are not solid wood and they are made from medium-density fiberboard, the stain will not look as good as paint. MDF cabinets are much more cost effective for your kitchen. Other considerations to make include the imperfections that aren’t hidden when you stain your cabinets and the amount of dust visible. This is especially true when you choose a dark stain for your kitchen cabinets.
