If you’re planning a cabinet painting project for your kitchen, bathroom, or other storage cabinets for your home or HOA property, choosing a finish is important. Trico Painting is proud to offer a range of cabinet finishes, including antique finishes.

Caring for Antique Cabinets

An antique cabinet finish accomplishes a lot for your home interior:

  • It Protects: Finishing cabinets gives them a layer of protection. Even indoors, cabinets are subject to wear and tear that comes from frequent use, not to mention the everyday imperfections that come from visitors, kids, and pets bumping into doors, drawers, and cabinet corners.
  • It Enhances: Finishes are designed to enhance the natural beauty of wood surfaces. You’ve kept your cabinets all these years because you love how they look. Applying finishes emphasizes what you love about your cabinets, and the finishing process minimizes their imperfections.
  • It Beautifies: Finishing adds depth and beauty to natural wood surfaces, highlighting colors and tones you might not notice otherwise.
  • It Doesn’t Hide: Finishes will do the job of protecting antique cabinets without hiding their unique character.

Do My Cabinets Have to be Antique?

Deciding whether or not to choose antique finishes is a matter of personal preference and taste. But there are unique stylistic results that you can achieve with an antique finish, even if your cabinets haven’t been around long enough to be considered antiques. This finish is a great fit for cabinets made of

  • Oak
  • Mahogany
  • Walnut
  • Rosewood
  • Bird’s Eye Maple
  • Elm
  • Satinwood
  • Kingwood
  • Calamander
  • Satin Birch
  • Amboyna
  • Teak
  • Pitch Pine
  • Pollard Oak
  • Ash
  • Yew

Your cabinets are unique, and we won’t use a cookie cutter approach. Your painting team will get to know your surfaces, assess their condition, and make sure any recommended finishes, paints, or stains are a good match for the appearance of the natural wood.

What Can I Expect from My Cabinet Finishing Project?

If you’ve noticed wear and tear has damaged your antique cabinets, or if they just look tired and dated, cabinet refinishing can take things up a notch. It can give you a kitchen, bathroom, or storage room that looks brand new without cabinet rebuilding that could come with a hefty price tag. There’s no need to spend tens of thousands of dollars on rebuilds and total overhauls. Paint and finishes are a powerful thing!

We will make sure cabinets, including doors and drawers, are smooth, sturdy, and ready to receive paint.
  5. Priming: Primers add to the smooth results everyone wants from any painting work done on their property.
  6. Paints and Stains: After primers are applied, it’s time for paints or stains to go on your cabinets. If you’re not sure which to choose, we can recommend a paint or finish that enhances your surface and its character.
