Glazes

What is a Glaze?

Add the impression of natural aging to your cabinetry creation with Showplace glazes—for no additional charge.

This extra step in the finish process applies a pigment which is then hand-wiped partially away. The pigment collects, or “hangs up,” to visually highlight areas of detail while flat surfaces are wiped clean.

Glaze is available on painted and stained cabinets. See a Showplace dealer to help incorporate free glazing in your cabinet design!

Ivory Glaze

Our lightest glaze option can provide contrast on dark cabinets or slight detail on light cabinets.

Oatmeal Glaze

One of our lighter glaze options with slightly warmer notes than Ivory.

  • Specie: Paint Grade

Pewter Glaze

This is our only grey option for glazes. It's a very middle of the road grey, not too light and not too dark. Making it easy to pair with various paints and stains.

  • Door Style: Covington
  • Specie: Paint Grade
  • Color: Hale Navy
  • Finish: Matte
  • Special Finish: Pewter Glaze
Carmel Glaze

Looking for a brown with warm notes, Carmel is your color. It can provide contrast on lighter paints and stains or it can provide less noticeable character with certain finish selections.

  • Door Style: Covington
  • Specie: Paint Grade
  • Color: Hale Navy
  • Finish: Matte
  • Special Finish: Carmel Glaze
Walnut Glaze

We're getting close to the dark side, but not quite there. Walnut is a darker brown with less warmer notes than carmel.

Shown on:

  • Door Style: Covington
  • Specie: Paint Grade
  • Color: Hale Navy
  • Finish: Matte
  • Special Finish: Walnut Glaze
Ebony Glaze

This is as dark as it gets! Ebony is a dark brown that can appear brown or black depending on the eye. Ebony is also featured in our hero image in a design by Heartland Cabinet Supply in Crystal Lake, IL.

Shown on:

  • Door Style: Covington
  • Specie: Paint Grade
  • Color: Hale Navy
  • Finish: Matte
  • Special Finish: Ebony Glaze

Should I glaze my cabinets?

Handcrafted glazing adds distinction and character to stained or painted cabinetry. And, unlike most brands, Showplace does not charge extra for glazes. Take your pick from six tones of hand-applied glazing on almost any paint or stain, for free.

Glazing is a great way to bring out the detail in intricately carved cabinets, doors, and drawer fronts. Pull your whole look together with glazed accents, molding, or focal points such as wainscoting, kitchen carts, and pantries.

Glaze Variation Disclaimer

Bear in mind that variability is one of wood's finest natural qualities, and actual glazes will differ. Computer displays also add their own interpretation to colors. Please make your glaze selection based on actual glazed samples at your Showplace dealer.
