Finishing Options for
Finished and Unfinished RTA Cabinets
RTA Cabinets are available “finished” or “unfinished.” The default interiors of all RTA cabinets (finished or not) are clear-finished maple veneer.
Unfinished cabinets come with unfinished face frames, sides, bottoms and tops. Interiors may be ordered unfinished by request, and in that case the wood species will match the face frame. Unfinished interiors must be specified.
Options for having your cabinets and Keystone doors finished include natural and color stains, solid paint colors, primer only, or any of our glazing options. By default, the interior will be of clear-finished maple veneer (as described above) unless specified otherwise. Cabinet interiors also have the option of being finished to match the exterior if specified when quoting or ordering.
Additional options include ordering finished or unfinished plywood or door panels for end cabinet sides. For complete details, contact Customer Service.
Finishing the Underside of Wall Cabinets
The undersides of RTA Wall Cabinets are not pre-finished. One recommendation is to use 1/4″ finished plywood trimmed with your choice of finished light rail moulding as shown. Depending on your style of cabinet doors, and the effect you want, light rail moulding can be applied in different ways as shown below.
(Please note: plywood and moulding are not pre-cut or mitered to fit.)
If required, cabinet tops may be finished in a similar fashion, often with crown moulding.
