Distressing

Cabinet Distressing

Give your cabinets an antique, timeworn look with Showplace distressing. The aged appearance adds class to any kitchen—and it’s a look that never gets old. The distressing process creates soft corners and profiles and subtle, randomly-placed dents.

Showplace stained cabinets can be distressed to fit your preference and may include combinations of oversanding and chain denting.
Showplace painted cabinets can be distressed to fit your preference and may include combinations of oversanding, chain denting and an additional rub-through technique.

Distressing Techniques

Showplace specializes in various distressing techniques. Take your choice of oversanding, chain distressing, or both, and then add distressed paint finishes to display optional rub-through. Each method produces a different result, such as visible rub-through on corners and raised areas, or random (intentional) dents created by hand-applied chain distressing.

Achieving this aged look in your kitchen takes time and expertise, and we have what you need. Our professionals know how to give your cabinets the perfect distressed look, and will make sure your project is treated accordingly.
