Should I stain or paint my cabinets?
When it comes to kitchen cabinets, it largely boils down to the finish. That’s where the cabinets really pop and appear aesthetically pleasing. If you’re thinking about tying out different colors, unique blends and interesting shades like submarine yellow or tranquil teal, then paint is a better option. You can get a lot of choices in paints, as they stick directly to the surface of the wood.
Staining enhances the natural beauty of the wood, as it seeps into the surface. It strikes a good balance between color and texture as well.
