The master in the ART of Living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both.
James A. Michener

How does it work? These high-end finishes are created using hand applied artful techniques & specialized products. (in other words, we take your cabinets and use professional products from Faux Effects International - to make them look totally new and unique!)
It is not an overlay! It's performed with layering techniques, that transforms the whole look!
What is customized? We offer a wide variety of finishes and can customize colors to fit any decor. Antiqued or Vintage, Asian, Renaissance, European, Eclectic, Contemporary, along with Bronze, Silver or Gold Leaf.
A kitchen remodel could cost over $30K+ .... a decorative 'faux' finish on existing cabinetry can cost half of that!
Is it permanent? Yes! Without losing the use of your room which normally happens during a re-model or renovation - most of the work is completed onsite, with the exception of doors or drawers being removed to have a professionally applied finish done!
Go ahead and Price a kitchen remodel and then, compare it to a our custom finish on your existing cabinetry.
For the past year, I have heard my share of stories from folks who asked to have their cabinets painted.
AND the feedback is disappointment about the overall "look". Truth is, it's just painted!
With the professional techniques used by The Faux Chateau - you get a decorated look that goes with your overall decor! So why not invest in the best and prepare for a wonderful transition!
YOU will not be disappointed.
I always provide a sample door - before any work even begins!
Trust a professional who knows!
Expect the unusual...
There's nothing better than giving an OLD piece a NEW LOOK!

Once you feel the smoothness & see the rich look of each finish - you will know the quality that is available for customizing your cabinetry (or furniture).
By using specialized products and paints, our surface preparation and final touches are durable.
We do not use oil based paints - but rather, quality Faux Effects poly resin paints that can stand up to years of use without wearing down.
Our paints actually bond with the surface, and are known worldwide for their durability.
In comparison to regular latex paints or oil-based paints - our paints have low VOC's and no after 'odor' !
Imagine your favorite place in the world - we can customize an imprint from a favorite photo or picture - and place it on a favorite furniture piece, wall, or cabinetry...it will look like it was handpainted.
Nature has a way of inspiring finishes on many levels, just as our finishes are not limited by what you see.
The Faux Chateau offers finishes of any color combination.
