Are oak cabinets outdated?

Think Oak is Outdated? It’s Not So! As we alluded to above, oak has been marginalized a bit in the kitchen design world, wholly thought of as a “traditional” design motif. In fact, oak cabinets can be used in ultra-modern kitchen designs, like this Custom White Oak kitchen located in Austin

If you’re truly wanting to update your home, you’ll want to restain with a darker, more modern stain colour OR sand things down completely and neutralize the wood with a lighter, more natural stain (no strong orange/yellow/red tones).

Unfortunately, engineered cupboards that aren’t solid wood aren’t as easy to to paint. Paint doesn’t adhere to the finished surface as easily and will often peel off or chip. To prevent chipping of most paints, the engineered wood cabinets will most likely need light sanding and priming before painting.
