Why Paint Your Oak Cabinets?

Landfills can receive roughly 12 million tons of wood in a single year. Of course, we can't assign blame for all of that waste to wooden cabinetry, but it's still something to think about. If you've got oak cabinets that are still in great condition, why throw them out?

Painting oak cabinets is an earth-friendly way to change things up without all the waste. It's a lot friendlier on your wallet, too, and takes a fraction of the time.

Plus, wood is more durable and longer-lasting than most "grain-free" alternatives you'll find for cabinet materials. In fact, oak is one of the most durable cabinet materials available. In other words, your oak cabinets still have a lot of life left in them, possibly even more than whatever you'd replace them with.

Go For the Grain: A Unique and Beautiful New Look For Your Cabinets

If you're concerned about the natural grain showing through after painting oak cabinets, don't be. With the right technique and finish, painted oak cabinets can actually look fantastic! You'll still seem some of the natural texture peeking through, but this will only enhance your new color and add texture to it.
