At Swiss Valley Furniture, a big part of our customization comes in the wide variety of finishes available for our wood furniture products. Our finish options include stains, paints, and distressing, all of which can work together to complete the look of your furniture set.

Stain Options

A stain finish is a traditional choice for wood furniture, helping the characteristics of the wood to show through in the finished piece. Stains are available in a wide variety of shades for brown maple, cherry, oak, and other woods, ensuring that the rich grains give each piece a one of a kind look.

Paint Options

Paint finishes provide a more modern look that will bring a splash of color into your home. Wood is a more affordable building material, making it a great choice even if you don’t like the look of natural wood grain. A painted finish gives you the best of both worlds — a modern look with classic durability.


Glazing has become quite popular in recent years, and offers a unique way to paint a finished furniture piece. Glazing gives a flat, one-color paint finish a more distressed or weathered look. This is a great way to give contemporary paint styles an antique feel.

No matter what type of finish you prefer for your wood furniture, our team can make it happen. Visit us today so you can discuss your plans with one of our design specialists, and we’ll help create a one of a kind piece.
