Do you love the look of glazed cabinets?
Cabinet glazing – also known as “antiquing” or “tea-staining” – means applying a darker, translucent finish, or “glaze” onto your cabinets to highlight the detailing, or to give a more traditional look. Glazed cabinets enhance the interiors and kitchens in more traditional homes, from “Mediterranean” to “country French” to “modern farmhouse”. The glazed finish itself can be highly customized, and can range from barely-there “subtle” to more heavily brushed “rustic”.
We start by giving your cabinets a smooth, new finish in the appropriate base color, which we will help select based on the look you want. Then we apply the glaze by hand, allowing more of the darker glaze color to settle in the grooves and corners of your cabinets to emphasize any details. On the larger, smooth areas of the cabinets, the glaze is wiped down until the right look is achieved. Here is where the magic happens! The glaze can be wiped out almost entirely, leaving just a hint of color, or can be brushed and left in a heavier layer for a more hand-done look. There’s a tremendous range of customization for glazed cabinets. The choice is yours!
