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

What is a Clear Coat Finish?

A clear coat cabinet finish is achieved by applying a coat of clear resin over your chosen finish. There are clear coat options for paints, as well as stained finishes.

When Should I Choose Clear Coat?

Other finishes add tint or dimension to your paint or stain color. But you may not want the color altered at all. If you want the color of your paint or stain preserved as-is, but also want the extra protection of a strong finish, clear-coat is a great option for your cabinet painting or staining project.

Clear coats are incredibly versatile on cabinet surfaces and let the beautiful, resilient cabinet colors you love shine through without dimming or diminishing them.

But it’s important to note that improper application of clear coat, or applying low-quality products, could result in a yellowing or discoloration of your underlying paint or stain. That’s why, when applying a clear coat, it’s best to call licensed interior painting contractors who use professional grade products known to perform well.

What Other Options Do I Have?

If clear coat finishes don’t seem like the best fit for your kitchen, bathroom, or storage cabinets, no need to worry! You have a lot of options when it comes to cabinet finishing and repainting.

Along with clear coat finishes, Trico Painting offers the following cabinet paint and finish options:

What Can I Expect from My Cabinet Finishing Project?

If you’ve noticed wear and tear has damaged your cabinets, or if they just look tired and dated, cabinet refinishing can take things up a notch and make them look brand new.

It can give you a kitchen, bathroom or storage room that looks modern and new without cabinet rebuilding projects 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!
