Painting my kitchen cabinets Benjamin Moore White Dove. Should I add a light glaze in the detail of the cabinet or leave it without a glaze. I like the look of the glaze in the corners but no all over the cabinet.. My house is traditional so I thought a small glaze in the detail of the cabinet would make it fit in more with the house style but I don't want to date it in case I need to sell my home within a few years. It"s November 2017. Any advise would be appreciated. Need to make decision ASAP as in the middle of the project.

overglaze is viewed as a bit out of date now, i'd give it a miss.

gkloda: if you're picking your colors based on what potential buyers will think, then do what is more appealing to the most people, i.e, skip the glaze altogether. If you're painting it for your own enjoyment, then do what you want, not what is "out of date."
