Is it time to switch the color of your wood cabinets or furniture?

Forget about spending a ton of money on new cabinets or furniture. You can get that new look by having us refinish with our oil or gel based staining services. The wood surfaces of your home, be they indoors or out, should be properly finished to provide superior protection and rich lasting beauty.

Preserving your wood and protecting it against problems such as rot and general wear is a must if you want to get the most visual appeal out of these surfaces, and keep the value of your home at its peak. At Design Painting of NY & NJ, we have experience staining all kinds of wood work, creating a bold and rich new look that will certainly add a luxurious quality to any home. Consider the warm look of maple on your banisters, or how your deck and exterior stairs can be completely transformed after proper finishing. By preserving your wood, you will get the most out of this investment, and preserve the appeal of your home in the process.

Why Should You Stain Your Wood?

Wood Protection

Waterproof your wood: By water proofing the wood surfaces on the exterior of your home, such as siding, decks, and stairs, you can ensure that they will last a lifetime and not need replacement. Wood indoors isn’t safe either from potential water damage, which will greatly accelerate its deterioration.

Stop sunlight: Sunlight actually causes damage to wood over time, causing it to fade and deteriorate. With a finish you protect it against UV rays, which are a must with exterior surfaces, or those indoors near natural lighting.

Wood Coloring

One great advantage of wood staining is that it can completely change the look and appeal of your wood surfaces, offering you a variety of options as far as their color. While some people prefer to paint over wood, finishing can offer rich, warm results that can be tailored to compliment nearly any design choice.

When to use Oil Based Staining

Looking for a deep finish that keeps your wood protected?

Oil based stain allows for deeper penetration of color into your wood cabinets or furniture. It also allows for a more even finish that will shine from every angle. The best part is it requires less maintenance as it is ultra durable and keeps wood protected over time.

It is best used in places that may be more prone to use and need extra protection. For more information work with a Design Painting Associate to determine if an oil based stain best suits your specific needs.

When to use Gel Based Staining

Looking for color and depth without covering up all the wood grain character that makes wood unique looking?

If you are struggling between painting or staining your wood cabinets or furniture then gel based stain may be right for you. The main difference between gel and traditional stain is that it doesn't penetrate the wood as much, allowing the unique wood grain texture to remain seen.

It is best used on woods like cherry, birch, pine and maple, which sometimes absorb thinner traditional stains unevenly. For more information work with a Design Painting Associate to determine if a gel based stain best suits your specific needs.
