Photos of chipped/dented painted cabinets

15 years ago

Yesterday I was talking to a KD that has been in the business for 20 years. She said that 90% of the kitchens they sell are stained bases and painted uppers. She said that painted base cabinets are much more prone to chipping or denting than stained wood under normal household use. And she said that because the color doesn't go through (as in stained wood), these imperfections show up more.

I've had stained wood in my kitchen for 20 years and I must admit that I don't see hardly any imperfections and the dents and dings that are there don't show up, as she said.

Anyone have photos of white cabinets that have been chipped, dented, etc. due to normal wear?
