White glaze on white cabinets
Some people aren’t interested in an old-style finish – they just want shining white cabinets. If this is the case, use a white glaze over a white-painted cabinet to achieve a brilliant and dazzling luster that looks clean, neat, and bright in your kitchen.
One of the most common shades for this is “vanilla”, which has a slightly off-white sheen.
This finish is brilliant for making a small kitchen feel larger, as the sheen helps to reflect light around the space and make everything feel brighter. It’s also a pretty safe option if you’re planning to sell your home in the near future – most people don’t have a problem with white on their cabinet surface!
However, this finish is difficult to clean, shows dirt easily, and isn’t ideal if you’ve got messy children or pets. If you’re going for white glaze on white base, prepare for a lot of scratches, grime, and wear-and-tear in the future.
