Painted – Paints are not only commonly used for interior and exterior walls and ceiling but also for kitchen cabinetry. It is also one of the easiest and quickest fixes to finish and update the look of cabinets. A fresh coat of paint for kitchen cabinets can instantly transform your kitchen’s overall look and character.
Glazed kitchen cabinets come in two forms. First, is a pre-glazed kitchen door which is already ready made and finished, while the other one would still include self application of a store bought glaze. The glazing process involves painting or staining the cabinet first, and then allowing it to cte for some time. Once the paint or stain has dried, a thin coat of glaze is applied over the cabinet door, using a brush, and then the excess is wiped. The glaze is then allowed to cure and once fully dried, a top coat of polyurethane is added.
Recessed panel kitchen cabinets are the opposite of raised panel kitchen cabinets. The primary difference between the two styles is the height of the center panel of the cabinet door face. The recessed panel kitchen cabinet style is characterized by a door design in which the flat center panel is recessed below the rest of the cabinet door and ornamented with a surrounding raised border, contour or profile. Shaker cabinet design can be classified under the recessed panel kitchen cabinet style and is considered as one of the most prominently used kitchen cabinet styles.
The glass insert kitchen cabinet style makes use of a glass panel instead of a full solid wood cabinet door face. Also known as the glass framed door, this type of kitchen cabinet design can use either clear glass, smoked or frosted glass, colored glass or textured glass. The most common type of glass panel used for this design is the clear glass which allows the users to see the contents of the cabinets without having to open the door. Alternatively, frosted glass can be used if you want to keep clutter out of sight while still providing variation in the finishes and breaking off the heaviness of solid wood cabinetry. Frosted glass is also more commonly used for more modern and contemporary designs.
