With 8 years of experience in kitchen and bathroom design, and an interior design degree, Lisa joined Kitchen Views in early 2010 to serve the Rhode Island area. She now works directly out of our Warwick, RI showroom. You can view Lisa’s profile here.

Who would have ever thought that there are so many decisions to make when picking out the cabinetry?  Besides the door style, wood type, and overlay (inset, framed, stained, painted), there are also glazing techniques to choose from, if you decide to do so.

Glazing is a technique used to highlight or accentuate the details of the door style you choose.  The glaze will look different as the door style changes.  It can be subtle or extremely obvious.  Glaze can be applied to either a stained or painted door.  It is usually hand applied and wiped off so every piece will not look the same.

Here is an example taken from Schrock of the same glaze combination on different door styles:

Your choices for glazed colors will depend on the cabinet line.  Some cabinet manufacturers will offer certain color combinations and have names for those combinations. Other cabinet lines will allow you to choose a stain or paint, and then choose from a range of glaze colors.  The most common glaze colors are white, brown, pewter, and onyx.  As the cabinet lines become closer to a custom line, you will have even more choices, such as the type of glaze and how pronounced it will be. This means that they will offer a dry, wet, pen highlight, light, medium, or heavy application, to name a few.

You can find examples of Dry, Pen, and Wet Glazes and more here on the glazes page of Omega Cabinetry.

Whatever door style or glaze you choose, your Kitchen Views designer will help you to make your kitchen both beautiful and made to last.
