Sleek, consistent finish - Paint only sticks to the surface of wood, leaving the finish one consistent feel.
MDF - To save money, some choose MDF as the material of their cabinets. Paint will cover this and you will not notice the difference, whereas stain will not adhere as well.
More colorful - If you're thinking of teal or yellow cabinets, paint allows that option! Stain is mainly just different shades of varying browns.
Cost - Painted cabinets tend to cost more, as the labor is more intensive. But if this is your "dream", why settle?
Touch-ups - The white cabinets tend to be harder to touch-up, being that the finish is so surreal. However, our cabinet companies created touch-up kits so the paint matches 100%.
Showcase wood features - Stain soaks into the wood grain, letting its natural character shine.
Cost - As mentioned above, stained cabinets are usually lower in price.
Blemishes - Stained cabinets tend to show any of wood's imperfections. If there is a large knot, the stain won't hide that.
Dust - Dark stains really let that dust show. Whereas a light paint color would hide the daily dust.
