Custom Finishes

The sky is the limit when it comes to paint colors. Painted Showplace cabinets are very popular, and color trends keep changing. Because we are a semi-custom cabinet manufacturer (read our blog explaining the differences between custom and semi-custom cabinetry), we offer standard paint colors, but also custom paints through our ColorSelect program. We partner with Sherwin-Williams to make their paint collection available in our product offerings; and if you want a paint color they don’t offer, we can work with our Sherwin-Williams local partner to match your requested color for your cabinetry!

But, what about custom stains? We are sometimes asked to match a stain that is not part of our standard selections. So can we do custom stains or match a particular color from a photo on Pinterest or other online sources?

No, we are unable to offer custom stain colors or match something you’ve seen online. Here’s why:

  • Many variables go into achieving the proper stain color – from wood species, to sanding, to stain application, to wiping technique.  These need to be thoroughly tested to achieve the proper color and this process can take months. 
  • We offer a wide variety of stain color options and strive to add more finishes at least once per year. Keep an eye on our What’s New page to see our latest product additions!

If you don’t see the stain you want on your Showplace cabinetry, what option do you have? You can actually order them unfinished so you can have a local professional finish your cabinets with the color you want. Keep in mind that Showplace is not responsible for any finish issues or damage to cabinets that may arise from our cabinets being finished by anyone else.

Cabinet Customization

Homeowners often ask us about the cabinet sizes we offer and if we customize our cabinets. Yes! We provide standard sizes and configurations; however, because we are a semi-custom cabinet manufacturer, we can customize the size and look of most cabinets. Read our blog explaining the differences between custom and semi-custom cabinetry.

Semi-Custom vs. Stock Cabinetry

You may be wondering how Showplace products differ from cabinets you can purchase from “big box” stores. Their stock cabinets may look similar from the outside, but there’s more of a difference than meets the eye.

Stock Icon

Here’s what you get from stock cabinetry purchased from a national chain store or stock cabinet company:

  • Standard-sized cabinets offered
  • Standard offering of wood species
  • Standard selection of finish colors
  • Standard selection of door styles
  • Limited or no ability to change cabinet dimensions
  • May be built-to-order, but often built ahead and sold from inventory
  • Priced most affordably due to limitations and materials used
Semi Custom Icon

Showplace is semi-custom. Although Showplace will build custom configurations and offers custom paint colors, we do not offer limitless species or custom door styles and custom stains. Here is a list of generally accepted semi-custom cabinet attributes:

  • Standard-sized cabinets offered; virtually any dimension of these cabinets may be changed to fit the kitchen or bath design and the available space
  • Standard offering of wood species with some specialty species offered
  • Standard selection of finish colors with some specialty finish treatments offered
  • Standard selection of door styles
  • Custom sizing and configurations available within standard wood species, color, and style offerings
  • Cabinets built-to-order for individual homeowner
  • Mid-priced to reflect flexibility and broad product offerings
Custom Icon

Showplace offers many custom features found with other cabinet makers who call themselves custom; since there are no universally accepted attributes to describe custom cabinets, we thought we’d share this list:

  • Standard sized cabinets may be available; specialty is “you draw it, we build it”
  • Standard offering of wood species, but will accommodate special requests
  • Standard finish colors offered, but will accommodate special requests for color matching and specialty finish treatments
  • Standard door styling offered, but will accommodate special requests
  • Special configurations of cabinetry are offered without restrictions on species, color and style
  • Cabinets built-to-order for individual homeowner
  • Most expensive due to limitless options
