What you need to know about painted cabinets.

Painted cabinets are very popular. They are often simple and clean looking in a very busy room. There is one fact you should know before you purchase painted cabinets. Over time, wood will move and paint will not. Often in the winter, the humidity in a house drops causing the wood to shrink. The paint will crack at the joints of your doors and drawers. It will happen less if you are able to keep a consistent level of humidity in your home year round. It does not matter which brand you purchase. Most, if not all, cabinet manufacturers do not see this as a flaw and will not warranty such cracks. So please, be aware cracks will happen and it is just part of owning painted cabinets.
