Some advantages of acrylic finish cabinets include high durability, ability to withstand wear and tear from everyday use, and resistance to scratches. In addition to that, acrylic finish kitchen cabinet doors are easy to clean. However there are still a few drawbacks to this type of cabinet finish. Since acrylic finishes have a glossy look, fingerprints and dirt are more visible in the cabinet’s surface, thus requiring frequent wiping and regular cleaning. In addition to that, an acrylic finish is also more expensive compared to other kitchen cabinet finishes.
Staining brings out the natural graining pattern of wood. The knots and grains of wood absorb the stain, leaving them with a darker color and a more highlighted appearance. It gives off a handcrafted look to kitchen cabinets, while allowing their natural beauty to stand out. Wood stain can be easily applied to kitchen cabinets by hand rubbing or using a cloth.
The application of the raised panel design is not limited to traditional designs alone as it can also work for transitional settings. The main advantage that raised panel kitchen cabinets offer in terms of design is that it adds dimension to a space.
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.
