Kitchen Cabinet Finishes Kitchen cabinets take a lot of abuse over the years: spills, stains, grease, moisture, door slamming, and nicks and scratches. How the kitchen cabinets stand up to that abuse depends in part on how they’re finished and sealed. Pickled finishes are currently enjoying popularity on kitchen cabinets. These consist of white pigment rubbed into unfinished wood. It lightens the appearance of the kitchen cabinets and can make a traditional-style kitchen cabinet look equally at home in a contemporary or country setting. Advantages of Polyurethane Finishes on Kitchen Cabinets Polyurethane finishes form a coating on the kitchen cabinet surface and can be applied over the wood, stain, or a paint wash. Brown paste waxes are also good finishes, applied over a sealer coat of shellac, varnish, or oil. One advantage of a polyurethane finish is that it can seal in formaldehyde gases, cutting down in emissions in your home. But to be effective, it must cover all surfaces and edges, and remain intact. Polyester and Lacquer Finishes on Kitchen Cabinets Among the newer choices for cabinet finishing are polyester and lacquer finishes, which give a high-gloss appearance. Polyester is harder and more durable than lacquer, making it more damage-resistant, but it’s more difficult to repair. The polyester coating is either clear or pigmented. Polyester is solvent-resistant, but lacquer can be washed off with a solvent, recoated, and retouched. These high-gloss kitchen cabinet surfaces aren’t recommended if you have young children in your household; toy automobiles, tricycles, and other mobile items can easily chip the cabinetry. Breaks are less visible on a grained, softer-gloss finish. For a custom kitchen cabinet look, you can order unfinished kitchen cabinets and have them finished onsite. Many homeowners overlook the decorative possibilities that can create the look of a custom kitchen cabinet when beginning with unfinished kitchen cabinets. Kitchen cabinets are blank canvases waiting for your creativity to explode on them with color, texture, and pattern.

Love your drive to get it right! I would as a professional warn you against using an Oil Based lacquer in your home. Most Oil based lacquers are called NITRO-Cellulose based lacquer’s, (same thing dynamite and Nitro Glycerin are made from) these products are highly explosive, the fumes and/or over spray can ignite easily. I assume that is what you used based on the strong fume comment. Waterborne lacquer’s use ammonia, about as strong as Windex with Ammonia, fast drying and with a fan the smell lasts about 8 hours and after 2-3 it is minimal. You can also roll the waterborne lacquer on the cabinet boxes and get great results to save any spraying in your home. The average kitchen boxes and gable sides can be completed in 3-4 hours. Make sure all grease is cleaned with TSP, ammonia will over time draw up any residual oil in woods and it will turn brown, (Ammonia likes to clean) There are several manufacturers that offer Waterborne lacquer’s. They are actually better in my opinion as you can get a high urethane (moisture resistance)content. You can also clear coat cabinets using Waterborne floor finish, the floor finish comes with Aluminum oxide (chemical resistance) Oils based lacquer has a very low moisture resistance compared to the Waterborne products. DULUX stores carry the X-Pert Brand. M.L. Campbell & Sherwin Williams also carry a water borne product now as well. M.L. Campbell is a Sherwin Williams owned Company so they have two brands. Nice looking Kitchen! Well done. Love your site, very informative and real world results for the DIY!

Marcus FillionThat first picture stood out to me the most. The combination of wood and frosted glass looked amazing. Kitchen cabinets can be extremely boring if you’re not willing to be a little daring. I want my cabinets to fit in with the rest of my house’s design.Kristen DockeryThank you for all the wonderful ideas and tips about modern cabinetry. I have been wanting to get new cabinets for a while now, but haven’t known what style was best and which will be in style the longest. I hope that I will be able to pick some out soon and get the new ones put in right away. I can’t wait to see how they are going to turn out.Dave ThompsonLove the kitchen in number 3. I love stainless steel in kitchens. It makes them look very modern, and expensive. That is the look I am going for in my new kitchen remodel. Thank you for sharing these great looking kitchens.SeanI really like the look of the lacquered kitchen cabinets. The shiny, new, modern look definitely appeals to me. However, I wonder how long the “shiny” look lasts. You compare it to a new car. Does it wear of as quickly as the new car look and smell?SeanI really like the geometric upper cabinets in the first picture in this article. The look is so clean and modern. However, I wonder if I would be cautious to go with this type of cabinet because I would be afraid that it was too modern. I don’t want to install something that is going to be out of style in 5 or 10 years.Susan HirstI love all of these modern kitchen cabinet ideas. I think my favorite are the stainless steel cabinets.

What is lacquer? Lacquer, a bright material available in many colours, consists of a fibreboard panel coated with polyester and polyurethane paints. The lacquer finish can be matt, gloss or metallic, and covers the entire surface. Lacquer is more delicate than laminate and may be subject to changes in colour. For this reason, its quality is determined by the type of paint used. To guarantee long-lasting colour, Scavolini uses paints with excellent resistance to light. However, the advice to protect your kitchen from direct sunlight and to perform the correct maintenance procedures on a regular basis still applies.
