Stained Cabinet Color Change

N-Hance developed a unique translucent stain process that allows the natural look of the grain to remain visible through the translucent stain. We only use products designed for wood, not for walls (like traditional paint). These products offer maximum adhesion and durability and are a unique acrylic polyurethane blend that can withstand the test of time  This process involves a much more dramatic effect than other cabinet refinishing processes that use gel stains or quasi-paints, which destroy the natural look of the grain.

How the Process Works

N-Hance Wood Refinishing of Chicago’s cabinet color change is typically a 3-5 day process where the doors and drawer fronts will be prepped and then sprayed in several coats to achieve the custom stain color you chose. Next, we spray several coats of clear water-based full-body urethane finish. And finally, your custom colored cabinets are instantly cured with Ultraviolet light, so you can immediately use your cabinets once we are done.

We replicate this same process on the cabinet frames and stationery pieces in your home to make sure there is a consistency in color and sheen throughout the kitchen.  While the thought of spraying finishes in the kitchen scares many, our technicians complete hundreds of these jobs each year without any incidents and N-Hance products are Low VOC and free from toxic chemicals and odors. We even take extra precautions and tape off surrounding areas in your kitchen, including your appliances.

We have nine base stain colors that can be combined to achieve just about any color you desire to match your countertop or backsplash, but popular colors include walnut, cherry, and espresso. You will love the result of this transformation. It’s a great way to give your kitchen a new, modern look!
