We also understand that choosing a stain color can seem like a difficult decision, but it doesn’t have to be with these pro tips. 

 

Consider Leaving Your Cabinets Natural 

 

If your cabinets have a beautiful color and wood grain already, like maple, walnut, cherry, or mahogany wood, they may not need to be stained at all. They may just need a protective finish over the top that allows their natural beauty to shine through. 

 

But in many cases, a stain can add richness and a beautiful design aesthetic to your space. And if your cabinet surfaces are stained or damaged, staining them can go a long way at concealing imperfections and making wood cabinets look like new. 

 

Choosing The Perfect Cabinet Stain 

 

First, consider and identify your style. Medium brown or warm cabinets fit well with traditional or rustic interiors. Cool, ashy, or dark stains are often implemented in more modern styles. A rule of thumb is that traditional rooms usually have cabinets that blend with flooring, while modern rooms usually have some contrast between cabinets and flooring.

 

It also matters to think about the size or your room. Darker stains can make a room feel moody and potentially smaller, while lighter cabinet stains can open up smaller spaces.  

 

WoodWorks Refurbishing can help you select the perfect stain for your cabinet wood type and also the design of your space. 

 

Test Your Cabinet Stain First 

 

We suggest narrowing down your cabinet stain options to two or three of your favorites, then sampling the colors directly on your cabinets. If it’s not possible to test the stain directly on your cabinets, you can try purchasing a board of the same wood type and applying it there. Look at the stains in various lighting before making your decision.
