to glaze or not to glaze white cabinets

linjboJanuary 22, 2012

I am having my oak cabinets painted BM White Dove. I've had 3 or 4 people quote the job...all say I should put some sort of "glaze" or the white will be stark and look like we just slapped a coat of white over old cabinets. I think glaze makes the cabinets look aged and country. I am looking for a cleaner, more contemporary look. Many say adding the glaze makes white cabinets look more sophisticated, custom, high end and will look cheaper with plain white. But my gut tells me stay white. Thoughts? (P.S. we have Emerald Pearl granite - which is black with silvery flecks)

You've probably already decided, but I hope you went with your gut!

Thanks Jessica. Yes, I'm going with my gut. The person I hired is back-logged and can't do until April. The wait is killing me. She did say she'd make a sample of both just so I am 100% certain.
