Glaze makes reference to the substances used to coat cabinetry that produce enhancements in door detail, wood color and tone.

The addition of glaze finish treatments as an added finishing step has revolutionized the cabinet industry, bringing home fashion to the forefront of consumers' minds. Glazes actually enhance and improve the beauty of the wood and the base finish color. Glaze treatments and techniques can vary from heavy to light. Lighter treatments lend themselves to a more subtle appearance.

Glaze, also refers to a coating of glass applied to a porous body to seal it against the penetration of liquids. Glazes are made by fusing silica and alumina, after a flux has been added to the silica to decrease its melting point.
