How to Choose the Right Wood Stain

When it comes to the color of your kitchen cabinets, you may be facing the biggest choice you’ve had since beginning a kitchen remodel. While you can simply choose a color of stain off of a chip or chart, it’s very likely that this stain will end up looking dramatically different once applied to your cabinets. It’s also likely that if you find a stain color you like on someone else’s cabinets that it may look different on yours. This is because there are numerous factors that affect how stain looks on different species of wood. The grain of the wood, its underlying color, and how well it absorbs stain all impact what the final color will be. So whether you’re trying to match the color of an existing cabinet or you’re looking for the right shade for a new cabinet, you need to learn the best way to match the right wood with the right stain.
