Believe it or not, there are some folk out there who do not appreciate the beauty and the richness of red oak wood and there are some people out there who really don't appreciate oak wood at all. But I'm not one of them and over the years I have come to love and revere oak wood in general and particularly red oak wood. In this article I am going to give you a step by step guide to help you stain and varnish your red oak cabinets. I will be focusing on new cabinets but the same procedures are in order for existing red oak cabinets with the exception being that all existing coatings on your cabinets must be completely removed before you can re-stain them. Once again, I cannot stress this point enough; all previous coatings-stains, urethane, paints and primers must be totally removed from your cabinets before you can begin your re-staining and re-varnishing system.
You can even stain your new oak cabinets or cabinet doors to add versatility. Be careful, however, when staining new doors that they will match the rest of the cabinets. Here you would probably want to stain both the doors and cabinets. Making sure they match is the key.
Oak Kitchens: With this wood specie found in abundance in North America, it is no wonder that this has become a common face in the heart of homes. Oak kitchens brandish a facade that is naturally large grained, making up for distinct patterns that change throughout for an exquisite overall look to your kitchen cabinets. The surface also has mineral streaks of black, green and other colors that create a more interesting feel to it. Being porous, this wood type absorbs stains and glazes well helping create a richer look that highlights the display or beautiful grains.
Oak kitchen cabinets are one of the most affordable options for your kitchen. Whether you want to completely replace them or simply reface them, your options are many. If you have had oak cabinets for many years, but find the doors are looking a little worse for wear, consider just replacing the doors. That way you'll be able to preserve the original cabinets which are still in good condition while matching new doors to them for a whole new look.
Most contemporary style kitchens use oak cabinetry without any knobs and handles, thereby giving you a sleek and smooth look which fits in well with the modern decor of your kitchen. There are many home owners who prefer to use oak cupboards with differently styled doors to give the kitchen a traditional look.
