Cabinet Colors go Beyond Brown!

StarMark door colors

Cabinets in every color!

Cabinetry colors and finishes go waaay beyond brown or white. If you want purple cabinets to match your fav dress, it can happen! Just like dyed wedding shoes, the options are endless! Here are some finish tips.

When choosing cabinetry, remember every wood species has its own characteristics which affect the stain or color hue. Maple and oak look totally different in the same finish.

Gray is the new neutral! StarMark’s Peppercorn Gray

All cabinet manufacturers offer similar stain colors—natural, dark brown, reddish brown, vanilla—each with their own catchy names. Jazz up these colors by applying a glaze for oodles of dimension in the nooks, corners and edges. A vanilla cream cabinet with chocolate glaze sounds yummy!

Goin’ for shabby chic, cottage or cabin feel? Adding a distressed finish with worn edges, wormy holes, and light chain distressing can make something new feel old and cozy. Yikes, we’ve just sanded the surface!


StarMark’s Aegean Mist is a nice contrast to the wood tone.

Ahhh…Relax in a soaker, whirlpool or air tub

Hydrotherapy benefits the four important nerve receptors in our bods—contact, temperature, light-touch and pressure. Each sends messages to your brain that stimulate physical reactions. If you’re dreamin’ of a spa tub, you have hydrotherapy options!

So, what is this wonderful discovery? It’s all about the bubbles. Oxygen-rich microbubbles to be precise. Jason International has redefined hydrotherapy with their MicroSilk® technology. This patented process creates billions of these little wonders and is like giving your entire body a facial, making your skin feel luxuriously silky.

The microbubbles form a cloud of oxygen in your bath and provide an effervescent sensation while gently penetrating into your pores for a deeper cleansing. At the same time, moisturizing and plumping your skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. When the microbubbles collapse in the water, they release their heat energy, which helps maintain a consistently warm bathing experience without the need to add more hot water.

MicroSilk’s oxygen-rich microbubbles surround your body, energizing skin cells, stimulating the immune system, killing bacteria and promoting healing. Microbubbles reach where soap and water alone can’t, entering your pores, bonding to impurities and gently lifting them away, leaving your skin soft and clean.
