New Finishing Technology & Techniques For Cabinetry

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Whether a homeowner lives in a country cottage or an uptown city loft, the look and feel of a room will be influenced by the cabinets. New technologies and techniques in cabinet finishes allow homeowners to personalize their kitchens with cabinets that stand out from the rest.

“Custom finished cabinetry offers homeowners an infinite choice in the types of finish and colors or tones,” says Paul Linden, owner of Accent Painting. “Many new exciting options are available. We can blend solvents, resins, binders, dyes, and colorants to provide a wide array of unique custom finishes.”

In fact, cabinet finishes come in styles and colors as distinctive as a homeowner’s personality. Here are five options to consider:

  • Distressed finishes mimic years of use and are popular in many period style homes, cottages, and rustic designs.
  • Shading adds depth to cabinets.
  • Custom dyes are available to achieve any desired color.
  • Lacquered finishes will give a durable, long-lasting, and waterproof finish.
  • Glazed finishes create an attractive patina and give cabinets an antique look.

The best wood cabinet finishes use a multiple step process of sanding, sealing, hand-wipe staining, and finish coating. In 2010, the Accent Painting staff attended the American Wood Finishing Institute and developed hundreds of custom waterborne cabinet finish formulations and solvent-based finishes.

With 29 years of licensed experience, Accent Painting can help homeowners affordably add character and elegance to any home. In addition to cabinet finishing, Accent Painting offers interior and exterior painting, Venetian plastering, staining, smooth wall finishing, and wood rot restoration.
