Black Kitchen Cabinets | Dayton Door Style | CliqStudios

In this apartment, the owner needed something simple and stunning. He chose the Birch Sable finish on these dark kitchen cabinets. Complemented by a beautiful gray countertop and white backsplash, he fell in love with his new space.

Is there a slant on the inside panel edge of the door?

Thanks for your question. There's no slant on the edge. The outer frame of the door and drawer fronts meet the recessed panels at 90 degrees.

Feel free to visit our website to see all of our door styles. You can order free samples too!

Negative detail - I was planning a 20mm stainless steel bench top for my next Kitchen with a negative detail above the cabinets. What depth of negative detail would you suggest ?

Thanks for your question! We have two suggestions: 1) We'd recommend matching the spacing between the drawer fronts on the cabinets for consistency (like seen in this picture). 2) Otherwise, 3/4″ is common too.

Affirming Kitchen Clarity
Margins as I refer to them are so important, as well as the structure of the cabinetry, attached detail we did with rift oak veneer, horizontal grain matched and tight margins between doors, the 1/2" stainless steel mildly pops maintaining the elegant feel not "clunky" as I find with wide margins, consider every margin, appreciate the value it brings to the design, keep in balance and it will be visually stunning

I love the color of those cabinet doors. Does the wood grain still show under the dark stain? and what is the best way to clean them?

Yes, the wood grain is still visible on the Birch Sable cabinets, but it will be more pronounced in certain types of light.

I encourage you to order free color samples of our cabinets to see if the finish meets your expectations. You can order samples here:

As for cleaning, we recommend wiping up spills right away with a soft clothe and warm water, and polishing cabinets two times per year with a high quality, oil-based furniture polish. Do not use paste, wax, or polishes that contain silicone.

Please visit our Care & Cleaning page for further information:

This is a Formica product that they no longer make. The closest option now would be a soapstone. Take a look here for possible options:

Sorry, hope this helps somewhat!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

How to repaint your kitchen cabinetsIf you plan to take on a boring-to-black cabinet painting project, you're in for a high-impact, affordable boost. Here's how to do it:Wipe down cabinets, drawers and face frames with warm water and cleanser to remove any surface stains and grease.Remove all hardware (handles, knobs and hinges). If you plan to reuse them, keep them labeled and together in a safe place. Fill any gouges or holes, especially if you're replacing the old hardware. Place doors on drop cloth while you work on them.Sand. If your cabinetry isn't particularly glossy, you won't need to do much, but it's always good to rough it up a bit, so the primer and paint will adhere to the surface. It will also help create a smooth base, which is critical if you plan to apply a glossy paint.Prime. Oil-based primers, though messier and stinkier, will provide the best protection and durability for high-traffic, high-use elements like kitchen cabinets. Let the primer dry overnight.Paint! Two coats of latex should do the trick. Semi-gloss will be easier to clean, high gloss will give you more drama. Satin is the lowest sheen you should go with in terms of durability and wipe-ability. Paint with short strokes, all in the same direction. Let dry thoroughly between coats.The wait: Experts recommend waiting three days before re-hanging doors to ensure that you won't muck up your new paint job with fingerprints, or risk having the doors stick to the frames.Rehang/reinstall, and let the compliments roll in.Next: More Kitchen Color IdeasHow to Set Up Your KitchenObsessed with Gray in the KitchenDark and Regal Kitchen DesignsBacksplashes for Wood Cabinets

Finishes for Shaker CabinetsPainted finish. This offers a more contemporary look, allowing you to keep the sharp, squared-off and recessed edges that make the cabinetry intrinsically Shaker. Depending on the type of timber, you may start to see hairline cracks at the joints as wood naturally expands and contracts over time, but this generally does not compromise the door's strength.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Your Guide to Choosing Kitchen Cabinets
If you'd rather stick with something more traditional for your cabinets, then the timeless Shaker style is a sure bet. Learn how to make this look work with different counter, hardware and backsplash materials. Get the guide: Shaker Style Still a Cabinetry Classic
