    What to Expect with Painted Cabinetry

    When we break down our kitchen projects by finish, painted maple is definitely on the top of the list. It is a picture perfect classic New England look. This look, however, comes with a slight “caution” flag. Real painted cabinetry is just that... REAL wood.  It expands and contracts with the weather/humidity level in your home. With that said, you can expect to see some cracks in the paint from time to time – especially in the winter when the heat is on. That tends to dry everything out, including your cabinetry!

    Check out this Q&A from This Old House for their thoughts/comments on the topic. Click here for article.

    This photograph gives an example of what you can expect to see from time to time. This crack is on the extreme side. Most of the cracking you will see, if any, will be much less noticable.
