Adding texture to your cabinetry brings dimension, visual interest, and character. And you can add as little or as much texture as you desire. With the variety of wood species and innovative manufactured materials that Wood Crest offers, texture can be achieved in many ways!

Many woods, when stained, flaunt their natural graining pattern and random knots that exude texture. Other woods, such as Rift Oak, have a linear grain pattern that is more consistent and achieves a more contemporary look. Wood Crest’s textured finishes available in both Melamine and Thermofoil materials achieve some of these same popular looks at a lower price point.
