We understand that cabinets can make or break the entire aesthetic of your home. Because there is an array of cabinetry on the market, choosing the right fit for your home can be overwhelming. We aim to educate you on all the unique styles and finishes of Kraftmaid Wood Cabinets, so you feel confident in your design choices.
Step 1: Room Selection
Kraftmaid Wood Cabinets are primarily used in kitchens or bathrooms where they double as storage areas and decorative pieces caressed with intentional detail. However, you don’t have to limit yourself to these typical areas. These cabinets are universal, suitable for any room in your home.
Step 2: The Woods
Just like any other aspect of interior design, there are several customizable choices. For cabinets, you must start but selecting the wood to use for your Kraftmaid Wood Cabinets, keeping in mind that each adds its inherent personality. Our artisanal professionals work with you to make sure these cabinets mesh seamlessly with the design you have in mind.
Alder: The Industrial Medium
Have a home with a more rustic, industrial soul? The Alder wood option features robustness ranging from pale pink to deep brown, detailed with knotholes, burls, and mineral streaks for the look of intentional craftiness.
Cherry: The Deep Reddish
Mirroring the likeness of a cherry, the Cherry woods’ reddish-brown color is married with a smooth, straight grain, adding depth to any room.
Maple: The Sweet & Creamy
The Maple wood is defined by its off-white color swirled with golden tones. Sweet like maple syrup, this wood offers a consistent, fine grain for smoothness and uniformity.
Hickory: The Dramatic
Just like the bold taste of hickory, the Hickory wood candidate compliments any room with pronounced random grain patterns, burls, and knots.
Oak: The Traditionalist
Akin to the classic Oaktree, the Oakwood cabinet selection infuses a wavy-grained rich range of browns popular in traditional styles.
As always, when working with natural materials, it is important to remember that the wood you choose is ever-changing. For most, this aged wood result is coveted.
Step 3: Finish off Nicely
The finishes to your Kraftmaid Wood Cabinets are the biggest influence on their overall look. Each product is finished using Durakraft™ Plus Finishing System, a 14-step layering process ideal for durability.
Finishing your cabinets with paint is a great way to cover the natural grain wood and add uniformity to your home. Layered with three coats of hand-applied, catalyzed enamel paint, your cabinets’ look will be long-lasting. Want a color we don’t have? We offer you the ability to select any paint on the market with our ColorMatch™ system and to customize any color by adding hand-painted highlights for your charm.
Get the pop of paint coloring while retaining the beauty of the natural wood textures. The translucent finish offers your room subtle sleekness and texture. It is one of our many finishes that utilizes the Suede DuraKraft™ top coat for a matte finish.
The only kind of stains you want on your cabinets! The stain finishes we offer are one of the most popular, as we hand rub each door, a feature that is uniquely us. The stains range from subtle to dramatically brushed, then flooded with glaze, and hand-highlighted, making no two doors the same.
Get a timeless distressed feel without the stress! Distress finishes mimic coveted dents, dings, and imperfections of reclaimed wood. The look of these features is further dramatized by a darkening stain and softer, matte topcoat.
Charm any home with the look of a well-loved cabinet. We over-sand, exposing the natural wood underneath, creating a vibrant heirloom effect.
Get the wear and tear vibe without the actual damage. Your cabinets will look like they’ve been exposed to the elements by using a dry brush technique. The soft, matte finish enhances the linear accents for a timeworn appearance.
Aging your new cabinets by distressing and over-sanding the wood, opens up their antique character. A glaze is then poured over for a crisp, clean finish evoking a rustic personality.
