You may be wondering like a lot of people do, what’s the difference between powder coating and paint on furniture? And no, it’s not a dumb question – it’s a great one!

You’ll notice that with most of our products we let you choose between powder coating or paint with our color options. Some products (all metal) we only offer in powder coating or the metal patina option – for example our new Brentwood Round Coffee Table.

Latex or Enamel Paint

Spray on paint offers a great finish for products inside the home. We do provide a protective clear coat on top of the paint for added protection. There’s always a chance of possible scratches and dings down the road with this type of paint. All around this option is a good choice if you want to keep the cost down a bit too.

Here’s the hammered black in the “paint” version:

Powder Coating

Powder coating is a high-quality finish that protects the roughest, toughest machinery as well as the household items you depend on daily. It’s a more durable finish than liquid paints can offer and are more resistant to diminished coating quality as a result of impact, moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light, and other extreme weather conditions. In turn, this reduces the risk of scratches, chipping, abrasions, corrosion, fading, and other wear issues. If you are looking to put any of our furniture outdoors, we highly recommend choosing the powder coat option for your product.

Powder coating pros versus using paint-

  • It saves you money down the road from having to repaint over the paint.
  • Long lasting, tough and durable.
  • Scratch resistant.
  • Chip resistant.
  • Fade resistant.
  • Weatherproof for outdoors.

Which is right for your home?

Completely up to you but if you have kids or your furniture will experience some wear and tear we recommend going with the powder coating option. It is a little more but it does save you time and money down the road.
