I get a lot of requests for the painting of kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, and bookshelves. During the past fifteen years, I have used many different paint products that are made explicitly for cabinets. There is one that I can highly recommend for all surfaces which provides the best durability, longevity and is easy to keep clean.
Below is a link for the product Hollandlac from Fine Paints of Europe:
Here is a picture in the Brilliant finish. It has a high sheen that will provide the ultimate durability but will show the most imperfections if the wood is not new.
Below is a picture in the Satin finish. The sheen is not as high/noticeable as Brilliant, will show minimal imperfections and also provide exceptional durability. This sheen is the most common as it provides the “showroom” finish. The cabinets will look like a factory finished product if appropriately applied.
This is an oil-based product and is very difficult to apply. I highly recommend hiring a professional painting contractor who has the experience to apply this interior paint product for specific surfaces for kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, and bookshelves. This product can also be used on all furniture from tables and chairs to dressers and nightstands.
The next blog will focus on the correct paint products to use on interior house trim including baseboards, molding, windows, doors, and frames.
