How To Darken Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen cabinets set the theme of your kitchen. Changing the look of your kitchen doesn’t necessarily mean replacing the cabinets. Instead, you can stain the cabinets in different tones for a refreshing look in your kitchen space.

Step 1

Cherry Blossom stains on kitchen cupboards

Step 2

Sandwich kitchen cabinet doors and frames with a hand sander. Use medium-grit paper.

Step 3

Sand all corners and crevices that a sander cannot reach using medium sandpaper. Wipe the dirt off with a cloth.

Step 4

Replace the sandpaper on your hand sander with fine sandpaper. Sand the surface of cabinet doors and frames.

Step 5

Use sandpaper to finely grind all corners and areas that a hand sander cannot reach. Wipe off the dust.

Step 6

You can read the label on your wood stain. Gently mix the stain with a painter’s stick and thoroughly mix the settled material throughout the stain mixture.

Step 7

Use a chisel-edge brush or foam pad to dip the brush into the stain. Hold the brush at a 45-degree angle and smudge the wood with back-and-forth strokes that follow the wood grain. Cover the entire area, including the corners. Lift the brush off the surface to prevent it from falling off.

Step 8

If you notice that the stain is a bit uneven, use a dry brush to make the stain bright and even. Let the stain dry.

Choose dark colors to match your kitchen.

For a darker appearance, use fine sandpaper and sand on the kitchen cabinet doors and frames. Follow the same instructions as in step 2 to wipe off the dirt and apply a second coat of stain. Let the stain dry.

Step 10

After drying, use protective paint such as polyurethane to seal the stain and protect the cabinet from excess kitchen
