Glazed cabinets are an essential element of a French Country kitchen or any kitchen design with an appreciation of Old World style. The handcrafted effect lends a distinctive sense of substance and character to a space. This is a look that is subtle luxury at its finest – glazing makes brand new cabinetry feel as if it has been in your home for a lifetime, without the damage and wear.
Glaze is applied by hand after the cabinetry has been painted or stained. While so much about kitchen design has changed over the years, glazing is still done by hand and piece-by-piece. It takes years of training to know exactly how to apply glaze to achieve the desired effects of appealing texture.
The artistic and time-tested approach of glazing cabinetry creates a rich and interesting look that captures light and accentuates any decorative detailing. Results are particularly evident in molding and decorative embellishments where the glaze settles into the details and leaves a slightly darker highlight.
