A lacquer finish is similar in appearance to a spray-applied painted finish but varies greatly in the durability, sheen longevity, and ability to clean. If a customer is wanting their cabinets refinished with a paint appearance, we almost exclusively recommend a lacquer finish. We are confident recommending this finish because it is a "straight-from-the-manufacturer" type of product. Lacquer dries very hard and porous-free thus allowing it to hold up to grease, stains, and other naturally occurring markings. Lacquer can be tinted to any color and comes in either a satin, semi-gloss, or gloss sheen. Lacquer can be used on any hard surface, such as cabinets, shelving, doors, railings, etc.
