Choosing Your Stain

Let the natural beauty of your cabinets shine through with any of our stain options, custom-formulated for Showplace Cabinetry. Showplace stains highlight the unique charm of each wood species and keep your cabinetry looking new for years to come.

What is a stain?

Wood stains fill-in the pores and grooves in wood to enhance its grain patterns. Showplace also protects the beauty of your cabinets with an oven-baked topcoat of catalyzed varnish for lasting durability. See the difference it can make using the woods and stains listed below.

What makes Showplace stains different?

You’ll be choosing from the best stain options available, ranging in variations of color. And since exceptional stained finishes start with how the wood is prepared to receive stain, our sanding processes blend precise state-of-the-art sanding equipment with the personal attention of hand-sanding for a quality finish you can rely on.

Stain Options


Cherry tends toward elegant warm tones, and also darkens considerably as it ages. Cherry has a fine grain that often exhibits swirls and a flowing, random pattern. Cherry’s color varies from nearly white to dark reddish brown.

Maple has a fine, uniform grain pattern, and tends toward lighter colorations. Like all woods, maple will darken with age, but to a lesser degree than cherry. Maple takes on a subtle mottled appearance when finished in the darker stains.

A heavy, dense wood, hickory displays vibrant grain patterns and wide color variation. Lighter stains make this natural variation the most evident, while darker stains tend to mute it.

Red Oak

This time-honored favorite features warm tones and has a prominent, distinctive grain character that shows tiny rays and flowing patterns. Red oak is very hard, giving it a high shock resistance.

Stain Variations Disclaimer

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