April showers may have some people hoping for May flowers. But when you live with cabinetry on the brain like we do, the crazy Spring changes in weather have us thinking of…weathered finishes! For the past several years, weathered finishes have been on the rise, a trend noted by the experts at DuraSupreme Cabinetry.
According to DuraSupreme designers, “The desire for natural textures is driving the increasing popularity of rough-hewn, weathered, and reclaimed wood cabinetry and furniture. Dura Supreme’s Weathered Finish collection includes an array of colors that evoke images of sun-bleached driftwood, charred campfires, or time-worn dock planks.”
Homeowners who like a weathered, rustic style are drawn to the warmth of something that has stood the test of time. Every weathered look can be unique—a look that is totally their own. DuraSupreme even offers a full line of weathered cabinetry. Mandi Juskiewicz from DuraSuprme notes the process is what creates this singular look. “Our special finishing process raises the grain to expose swirls and patterns with a uniquely textured surface. The surface is then lightly distressed by hand to emulate age and wear. After staining, a glaze is applied to highlight the raised grain and then lightly buffed on raised edges and around knots to feature the stain color below,” says Juskiewicz. “Because each cut of wood is unique, every Weathered finish is a one-of-a-kind rendition that looks like it has been aged and worn by time itself.”
