Factory-Finished Painted Kitchen Cabinets
Characteristics of Painted Cabinets
Painted cabinets offer a classic, clean look for your kitchen. Choose black, white, red, blue, green, gray or mix several finishes in one kitchen to add an unexpected touch of style to your home. Two-toned kitchens are popular and an easy way to create a furniture look in an island or special feature. For all painted door styles, CliqStudios uses a high-quality medium-density fiberboard for the center panel. This minimizes shrinking and cracking. Painted cabinets generally require more maintenance to repair chips, marks, finger prints and residue from normal kitchen use. Paint may have a slight difference in tones between doors, drawer fronts and face frames.

The natural features described below are normal for painted cabinets and are not considered defects
- Over time, paint finishes will develop hairline cracks, most notably around the hardware and joints. This aging results from natural expansion and contraction of the wood, which occurs during seasonal temperature changes.
- Excessive exposure to smoke and poorly ventilated kitchens can drastically change the color and appearance of painted cabinetry.
- Painted joint hair line cracks are normal for painted doors.
