Pictured above on cherry cabinets, Honey Spice is our most popular stain. Not only is it warm and inviting, but it also goes well with a variety of kitchen furniture and décor.
This kitchen features our second most popular stain, Natural, on Rustic Alder cabinets. Because Natural is essentially a clear stain, the wood’s attributes are highly visible, making this stain a great option for rustic or country kitchens. Plus, light cabinets help brighten up a space – a popular selling point for homebuyers, according to Houzz.
Praline is another warm-toned stain that goes well with just about everything. Slightly darker than Honey Spice, it complements both lighter and darker-colored furniture and décor.
These maple cabinets feature Kaffe, a rich, warm stain that works in both traditional kitchens and more modern kitchens like this one.
Peppercorn, pictured above on maple cabinets, is a dark stain that brings an air of luxury to your kitchen and is perfect for anyone who loves the look of dark kitchens. Dark stained cabinets hide stains and splatter, especially if they’re a wood species like oak or hickory that features distinct grains.
