Lifestyle Cabinetry and Milwork re-constructed our kitchen and bathroom in 2013. They were meticulous, very professional and friendly. We are very pleased with the workmanship and wouldn’t hesitate to hire them for another project in the future.

Lifestyle Cabinetry and Millwork’s finishes are top notch quality with premium sanding preparation and material that won’t disappoint. A topcoat of spray varnish is applied to all finishes for lasting longevity. The industry’s best finishes come from Conestoga,
Contains no finish. Our customer chooses their own finish. However, you can choose from several sanding options to remove light scratches.
Stained used hand-wiped stains
As you could probably guess, wiping stains are applied by hand with a rag to penetrate the wood. A glaze of low-medium sheen is available as an optional topcoat. We strongly recommend a glaze with a low-luster sheen.
Stained using TruTone spray-applied stains
Hand-wiped stains may contain a lot a contrast, with some parts not as soaked as the rest. A spray stain from the TruTone collection will give a more even look. A glaze of low-medium sheen is available as an optional topcoat. We strongly recommend a glaze with a low-luster sheen.
Colortones paints are available for painted cabinets. Apply these paints over paint-grade Cherry, MDF, Hard Maple, or Oak. These are available with or without glaze and are top coated in a low luster sheen.
Painted using Prism paint collection
The prism paint collection has many vibrant colors to choose from.
Most match nearly all of Sherwin Williams paint colors.
After the paint or stain is applied, a glaze is the second step. The glaze leaves behind a highlight once it is wiped off. Most often, the glaze results in a different, complementary color than the paint or stain. This feature influences your cabinet price by about 10-12%.
Distressing treatments are used to create a look of aged cabinetry that has withstood years of everyday use and abuse. Each of our four major distressing elements are available a la carte. You can isolate a single feature or combine multiple features to create a customized distressing package. 1. Nicks and impressions 2. Rasp marks 3. Razor cuts and cut joints 4. Wormhole clusters and worm tracks.
This technique is applied to painted surfaces that have been sanded to reveal the wood below. You can choose from light or heavy applications. It gives an aging effect while it highlights the wood underneath. For this finish, we recommend a value-grade cherry for a warmer, more aged look than maple.
Though this finish is similar to glazing, more brush strokes are left on the surface. This treatment is great for those that are looking for a rustic or handmade appearance.
