The old kitchen cabinets are just boring and seem to make the kitchen’s look as boring as its look. But what if we can make them look more “alive” with Refinish Kitchen Cabinets? Of course your old cabinets will look vintage rather than boring. I have gathered information related to this issue which hopefully can give you some help and the likes. Here below are the things related to the current issue discussed here. Check it out!
The question becomes: What is the first thing needed to know by us before doing any re-finishing to our kitchen cabinets?
Well, there are many ways to starting refinish kitchen cabinets, but the most important one is to get the purpose identified firstly. I mean, which one you want to do to your kitchen’s cabinets, staining it or simply painting it? Once you have decided the purpose of your re-finishing project you will be able moving to the next steps indeed. The next thing will be considering how much the work takes you. If the project is done by yourself, staining seems to be the best way since it is much easier to do & also better than get your cabinets painted. And for the painting activity, if it is related to your cabinets, just don’t do it by yourself, that’s all.
So, which one is better, painting or staining?
For this question I will answer depending from the information that I got, neither one is better or in contrary, worse. It will depend on the purpose and the style that you try to achieve (just like I’ve written firstly above). Painting the cabinets will give it more options of colors of course and the surface will be flat because the paint will get the wood grains covered. While staining will make the cabinets look lighter/ darker and get the existing wood exposed.
