Most homeowners have considered painting their cabinets at some point in their lives. You get tired of the same old look, but you don’t really want to spend the money on a full-on remodel. Another option that you may not be as familiar with is cabinet toning.
How Does It Work?
Cabinet toning involves using a mixture of topcoat and stain to deepen the existing color of your cabinets. It’s not painting them but changing the wood tone to give them a beautiful new look at a fraction of the cost. How’s it done? A skilled craftsman mixes the right amount of stain to a topcoat to get the color you desire. The finished product can either be brushed onto the cabinets or applied using a sprayer. This process is repeated until the right amount of “darkening” has occurred. Then the cabinets are ready to be reassembled (doors and hardware put back together).
Should I Consider Cabinet Toning?
Toning cabinets is especially good for homeowners that love the wood tone in their cabinets but are tired of the color. Maybe the have faded over time as many will tend to do. The sun’s rays will lighten finishes over the years if left untouched. Cabinet toning can be used to get your cabinets back to the original shade if they have faded or they can be darkened to give your home a whole new look.
