Kitchen colors can unify the entire aesthetic of a kitchen’s design and structure, bringing some much-needed pop, vibrancy and liveliness to the area. A livelier kitchen can also make for a more engaging cooking and eating area. The welcoming ambiance you enhance with color is sure to create a comforting atmosphere where friends and family can relax and enjoy each other’s company.
Kitchens can utilize a wider color palette than most other areas within a home. Wood staining is a popular choice for making wooden kitchen cabinets and drawers pop, and it is a unique feature that looks great in most kitchens.
Wood stains consist of a colorant suspended or dissolved in an agent or solvent and applied to the surface of objects such as cabinets or drawers to create a fine, rich lacquer of color. Most wood stains differ from paints and varnishes as the latter has no added color or pigment and simply creates a surface film.
Applying stains can be easy or difficult depending on the process used and the object it’s applied on, but when staining is applied correctly it should be absorbed by the porous wood, creating a vibrant, rich finish. The porosity of the wood in question can affect the absorption process and cause variances in how well the stain sets and appears.
