Deslaurier design consultant, Adele Jacobs, shares her thoughts on stained cabinets: 

"Stained cabinets seem to be a consistent choice with clients due to the multiple colour choices, classic warmth and overall durability of a stained wood product. It's a great choice for those who want a touch of modern but prefer the warmth that a natural material provides. The dark grey and black finishes are particularly popular right now because they are considered a neutral that compliments many different types and styles of stone, tile and quartz." 


With that, let's get to the 5 best-selling cabinet stains in the Deslaurier catalogue!
