3. PICK AN ACCENT - GLAZE, RUB-THROUGH, DISTRESSING


All accents are optional. You can choose none, just one, or multiple accents. Click pictures to the right for a detailed look at the listed accents.


GLAZE - A process in which a contrasting glaze is hand-applied to the wood, then wiped off. The glaze will adhere to the natural grooves and waves of the wood surface. Any space between the moldings will show this contrast and enhance the complementary color.


DISTRESSING - A process that uses a variety of techniques to artificially age the cabinet to give a period look. This is often referred to as "cabinet antiquing." There are many different types of distressing. We will be happy to show you options and allow you to choose the elements that best match your taste.


RUB-THROUGH - A process in which the cabinets are finished with contrasting colored layers and are then sanded to varying depths in order to bring out the color contrast. 

1. PICK YOUR FINISH - PAINT, STAIN or DURAKHOTE


Most times, this decision is a matter of preference. In some instances, however, the type of wood you have will determine the best option.

For example, different woods like oak, maple, and hickory can be either painted or stained, yet reveal grain in a way unique to each.  

We will be happy to help assist you in your decision process by providing samples of your particular wood type.
