Painted Cabinetry

Posted by BlackChamois (My Page) on

I am trying to select a white paint for my custom kitchen cabinets. I feel that the standard "white" offered by my cabinet guy is a bit too stark.

I am trying to decide upon a softer white, however, regardless of the color I choose, my cabinet guy says it will change color when he adds the laquer to it.

1) Is there always laquer applied? Either mixed in, or as a top coat?
2) How do I account for this color change in order to achieve my desired color in the end result?

Any advice or insight is appreciated! Thank you!

I don't know if they always use lacquer, but I would select a color, have him mix it with the laquer or however he plans to do it and paint a cabinet door and see if that is what you want before painting all the cabinets.

I fail to understand why anyone would say this to/treat their customers this way.
The guy can't mix or blend colors so as to achieve your desired color as the end result? Jeez..
