High quality American wood are the primary material used for Shaker style kitchen cabinets. Examples of which are cherry, hickory, quarter sawn oak and cherry. All of which are notable for their resilience and durability. These type of kitchen cabinets are often left in their natural finish, but can also be painted or stained. Staining is used to enhance the richness of the wood while paints are used to create a more light and airy feel. White, beige and gray paint are some best options if you want to create a more update look using Shaker style kitchen cabinets.
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.
The type of paint used for wooden kitchen cabinetry are acrylic enamel paint, water based paints or alkyd paints. Acrylic or waterbased paints are a type of paint which can easily be cleaned off with water. They contain less fumes and are often odorless. Alkyd paints, on the other hand, are oil based and typically have a strong odor. Instead of using water for clean up, alkyd paints use mineral spirits.
Traditional kitchen cabinet styles are often ornamented with as single arch on top of the cabinet face or door panel. The most popular type of traditional kitchen cabinet style is the “cathedral style” or the rounded cathedral top design. This is also the most commonly used kitchen cabinet design style for budget houses and rental apartments. Because of its very affordable price, it is also widely used for budget friendly home remodel projects.
