Glazed Effect

Adding dimension & richness.

What is the Glazed Effect?

A glazed finish is achieved by applying a semi-transparent second color over cabinets. The glaze is then wiped off the surface, but remains in the profiles, moldings, edges and corners of the wood, highlighting these architectural accents. The goal of this technique is to add dimension and richness to cabinets.

There are a few considerations to keep in mind if you’re interested in glazed cabinets. For instance, make sure you choose a color that complements the cabinets and your kitchen as a whole. Everything from countertops and the tile backsplash to floors and appliance finishes must be taken into account.

Another consideration is the design style of your home. This technique generally achieves a more rustic look. So if you have a modern home and ultra-sleek kitchen, it’s probably not the right fit. However, if your kitchen is more traditional in terms of décor, then glazing can be a great option to add another dimension to your newly refaced cabinets and the space overall.
