14 Nov Choosing the Right Finish For Your RTA Kitchen Cabinets
The finish on your kitchen cabinets can set the tone for your entire kitchen remodel. But how can you know which color of cabinets is going to look best with the rest of your kitchen?
We’ll help you determine which color of finish for your RTA cabinets will fit the style of your kitchen. Knotty Alder has several different finishes that you can choose for your RTA kitchen cabinets. In this blog post, we’ll refer to these finishes that we offer with our cabinets.
Glazed Kitchen Cabinets
Our glazed kitchen cabinets are a warm brown color that creates a traditional look. The glazed finish shows a distressed look with indentations, worm holes and splits. These cabinets get their name from the slightly shiny, smooth finish that looks like a fresh glaze.
These cabinets are perfect for traditional kitchens, especially if you’re looking for a more rustic or antique-style feel. The glazed finish is perfect for that cozy cottage style of kitchen.
Natural Stain Cabinets
People love the natural look of wood in their homes. The natural stain cabinets from Knotty Alder creates the rustic feel that wood offers. Similar to the glazed cabinets, the natural stain cabinets will appear like natural wood, so they’ll show knots, cracks and other signs of distress.
The natural stain cabinets are less glossy and look more like actual wood, which can look great in both traditional kitchens as well as modern kitchens built to look classic.
Mocha Shaker Cabinets
Although still a natural wood, mocha shaker cabinets are much darker and are a little less traditional than the classic glazed or natural stains. These cabinets have a dark, mocha color that look very clean and stylish. Any knots or marks in the wood are going to be smaller and much less apparent.
Mocha shaker cabinets can look great in a cozy and traditional kitchen, but these cabinets also look great in a sleek, modern remodel.
White Shaker Cabinets
In case you didn’t get the memo, white kitchen cabinets are definitely in. These sleek cabinets display a matte finish with no natural wood markings or knots. This creates an elegant and clean feel in your newly remodeled kitchen.
White cabinets look great in almost any kitchen remodel. We really like seeing the white shaker cabinets in kitchens that have a classic feel, but are done up modern.
Dark Glazed Cabinets
If you’re looking for a combination of classic wood and a dark, glossy finish, you’ve found the perfect cabinets. The dark glazed cabinets look natural and show the details of the wood, but are also very elegant and modern.
These cabinets are great in kitchens that have cherry or other darker wood to accent them. You can use them to create either a classic look, or even a contemporary feel. It’s hard to lose with dark glazed kitchen cabinets.
