Which Finish is Right for Me? Exploring the 'Art of Finish'

When it comes to designing your dream kitchen, laundry or bathroom, every detail counts. From the flooring beneath your feet to the crown molding above, each element contributes to the overall ambiance of a space. One crucial aspect you shouldn't overlook is the finish your cabinetry has. This guide will walk you through each finish we offer and help you decide which one is right for you. 


Premium Painted Finish:

No matter what kind of vibe you’re looking to create, painted cabinets seamlessly integrate into both traditional and contemporary design schemes. Our premium painted cabinets are the ideal choice for homeowners looking for a smooth, flawless finish.

With a spectrum of colors to choose from, our painted cabinets allow for endless customization, ensuring your kitchen or bath reflects your unique personality and vision.

While painted finishes can scratch and scuff, they are easy to touch up, making them well-suited to a busy household. A simple to use touch up kit is a simple way to keep your painted cabinets looking fantastic, even when accidents happen.


Wooden Stained Finish:

For those who appreciate the natural beauty of wood grain, our stained cabinetry showcases the natural characteristics of the wood, creating an inviting atmosphere that exudes warmth and charm.

A stained finish is well suited to any interior design style such as French Farmhouse, Traditional, Mid-century Modern or Scandinavian.

Perfect for a premium, all-plywood cabinet, a stained finish is best avoided on cheaper MDF cabinets. We only use premium, all-plywood for our cabinets, ensuring a cabinet full of character and charm.

Only getting better with age, stained cabinets require little long-term maintenance and will maintain their natural beauty even after years of use.


Thermofoil Finish:

Modern lifestyles demand modern solutions, and our thermofoil cabinetry rises to the occasion with its sleek and durable design.

With a range of colors and styles to choose from, our thermofoil cabinets provide a versatile option that effortlessly blends functionality with contemporary flair.

Crafted from a resilient vinyl material, thermofoil cabinets offer a seamless, non-porous surface that resists moisture, stains, and chipping, making them an ideal choice for busy households.

Choose thermofoil for a low maintenance option.


High Gloss Finish:

For those seeking the ultimate in modern sophistication, our high gloss cabinets deliver a luxurious aesthetic that commands attention. With their reflective surface and lustrous sheen, these cabinets add an element of glamour to any space, creating a striking focal point that elevates the entire room.

These cabinets reflect more light than other finishes, which has the effect of making a space look and feel larger and more open. Ideal for smaller spaces or areas without a lot of natural light.

Easy to keep clean, simply wipe these cabinets down to maintain that flawless finish. No crevasses or creases mean no dust or grime can build up.


In conclusion, the finish of your cabinetry plays a pivotal role in defining the overall look, feel and practicality of your home. Whether you prefer the timeless elegance of painted cabinets, the natural beauty of stained wood, the modern appeal of thermofoil, or the high gloss glamour, Home Decorators Collection Cabinetry has the perfect option to suit your style. With our commitment to quality craftsmanship and attention to detail, you can trust that your cabinetry will not only enhance the functionality of your space but also elevate its aesthetic appeal for years to come.
