Column: Some Like It Painted


Commentary by Randy Sorrell and Bill Bernard

One of the first decisions to consider when remodeling your kitchen or bathroom is what color your cabinets will be. The two primary options are painted or stained. 

If your aesthetic sensibilities lean toward the clean and crisp, painted cabinetry may be the way to go. It used to be when it came to painted cabinets, you were offered white or cream. Then gray came along. Times and options have changed again, and now if you’re looking to infuse your cabinet design with color, paint is a great option. Cabinet companies work diligently to curate paint-color offerings that keep pace with current and future trends as well as those that maintain classic staying power. We work with a cabinet line that offers 38 standard paint colors as well as a custom paint-matching service.

If you look at a piece of wood and see the unique, natural beauty of the grain, then perhaps you should consider stained cabinets. Stained cabinets offer the combined beauty of color and texture to your home. Various species of wood offer distinctive character that is enhanced by the addition of a stain color. Cabinet companies work equally hard developing multiple stain colors that complement the inherent beauty of various wood species.

Although there are many factors that affect your decision to paint or stain, no one says you have to choose only one. Mixing and matching also is allowed. Give us a call, so we can help you decide what works best in your home.
