Cabinet finishes and glazes

When choosing a cabinet design its important to know you have some exciting and fresh finish styles to choose from.  Find the inspiration you have been looking for with these five new finish and glaze options from Diamond Cabinetry.

Forest Floor - Our Shared Nature

Introducing Forest Floor, our forward-looking, full-hiding, neutral opaque now available in all Maple door styles. It yields an earthy, brown hue that complements our broader range of contemporary wood species and tones, and proves a rich alternative for those searching for a respite from black.

Thatch - A Swatch to Watch

Thatch is just another example of how we're always dreaming up new ways to make mixing and matching colors, grains and textures less time consuming and so much more fulfilling. Right in line with design forecasts calling for warm complements to cool neutrals, this versatile finish is specially formulated to enhance our existing opaques and stains. Available on Cherry, Hickory, Maple, and Oak door styles. Dream it and the ideas will come.

Henna - A "Red-y" Answer

In order to move forward with something new, sometimes you first have to step back — a really, really long way back. Such is the case with Henna. Born of plants; coveted by aesthetic aficionados as far back as ancient Egypt and now available on Cherry and Maple door styles. This rich brown finish features subtle red undertones and eagerly awaits the opportunity to take its rightful place within your modern color palette.

Storm on Cherry - Cool not Cold

How do we continue to make big splashes with our new finishes? Because we've made a habit of listening to our customers and learning. And from everything you've told us, our stone gray, semi-translucent stain — previously available only on Maple — has taken imaginations by, well, you know. Plus, with popular tastes continuing to align with the natural richness of Cherry, it only made sense to add Storm to your creative consideration set.

Wood Tone Glazes on Oak - Rustic Redo

Oak's durability and distinctive grain have made it a design classic through the years. More and more signs are pointing to the trend that Oak is on the comeback. To help you stay ahead of the curve, we're expanding some of our most popular glazes to increase your options for creating an ever-popular rustic look. Tells you where we think the smart money is going.

Kemper Cabinet Design Styles


Taking a modern base and blending it with traditional detailing, our Casual styling is a balance of relaxation and refinement. Helping you build a room that says “home” and “you” at the same time, Casual style is about the personalization of the space and finding harmony between all of the individual elements. This style allows for a mixture of ideas and shows an appreciation for freedom, non-conformity and self-expression.

Expect to see eclectic accessories like modern art next to a family heirloom, bold accent walls, and architectural elements from simple arches to ornate rosettes.


Walking a fine line between utilitarian and modern, Contemporary styling is all about open spaces and clean lines. Sparingly decorated with large scale, bold embellishments and usually dominated by more natural tones; Contemporary style relies on sleek, smooth and polished facades to create a modern level of elegance. When going for Contemporary, think streamlined, cultured and bold.

Expect to see natural materials like aluminum, leather, glass and stone, few but bold accessories, and subtle geometric design elements.


Imagine a quaint country cottage where everything seems familiar and timeless. Rustic styling is built on the simple idea that everything in the room has been lived-in. At times raw and weathered, and at others softly distressed, this warm and relaxed style brings the charm of the outside in with natural materials, carved woods, heavy copper or iron and a hodge-podge of textures and embellishments that all come together to tell a uniquely long and rich story.

Expect to see decorations inspired by nature or personal memories, worn, country antiques, distressed edges and rough or faded paint, cyclical embellishments that bring the seasons inside, and a spectrum of colors that add pattern through texture.


Elegant, inviting and reminiscent of a not-so-distant past, Traditional styling is best summed up as ornate, rich and decorative. Usually embodying the golden age of Europe, Traditional uses a variety of colors, elaborate motifs and a blend of materials to breathe new life into century-old styling. And although it can seem "busy," this style maintains order and refinement through symmetry and balance.

Expect to see many patterns and textures, gilded details, elaborate hardware, rich colors that complement one another, and a blend of curved, irregular and straight lines.
