Well, the “X” is an idea Conestoga Wood has long been attached to…witness their popular rustic farmhouse Crossbuck door design. But this year’s proliferation of X styling has officially inspired Conestoga to amp up their X factor!
The X Side Overlay Panel features 3” framing and cross members and a 6” bottom rail that exemplifies today’s popular farmhouse design. Exterior framing widths are completely customizable.
The Wall X Cube offers a versatile means of wine storage that allows nearly any size bottle to conveniently stack, one on top of the other. Three different size wine cube cabinets are available and can be installed stand-alone or in conjunction with other cabinet designs.
Lift hardware, an approach to opening cabinets upward made popular in European kitchen design, is really catching on as a practically functional and visually engaging idea here in America. At Conestoga, ready to assemble wall and tall refrigerator cabinets are now available with preconfigured Blum AVENTOS HK-XS Lift Hardware included.
AVENTOS HK-XS lift hardware provides “open-upward” door operation that lends a distinctively European charm to kitchen design. These lift doors are easy to install, utilize conventional hinges, and are economically priced.
Ready to assemble, Conestoga provides the appropriate hardware and either one- or two-lift mechanisms based on the size and weight of the doors specified. Plus, doors for these cabinets include concealed hinge boring on the top rails.
Conestoga Wood offered over 30 range hood designs that create the perfect focal point for most any kitchen style – from traditional to transitional to modern. Now, with 7 new hood offerings, their collection has grown to nearly 40 different hood designs…and shows no signs of stopping there!
Conestoga has also added two new tapered Stanisci models, both with a 6” matching specie hardwood apron. The new CHW style leans to transitional styling, while the similarly shaped CHWB has a more modern feel with its horizontal beading.
The new Omega National Farmhouse with Chimney hoods feature a detachable chimney and vertical mouldings for easy removal to accommodate any necessary height adjustments. Both designs integrate beautifully with either contemporary or transitional kitchen styling.
Conestoga now introduces their Shiplap moulding program which offers options in 4”, 5” and 6” widths in 13 different wood species. True to the characteristics that make genuine Shiplap what it is, Conestoga’s Shiplap moulding is engineered to leave a telltale 3/16” gap between the face of adjacent moulding rows during installation, creating a subtle horizontal reveal between each layer.
Conestoga’s Synchronicity High Gloss program offers three levels of extraordinary gloss finishes available at multiple price points. That’s three ways to create ultimate contemporary gloss kitchens – each choice offering aesthetically appealing and highly durable surfaces. With 21 stunning colors, patterns, and wood grains from which to choose, this collection also includes four shades of ever-popular white. High gloss finishes never possessed such high appeal…until now!
Allure has evolved into an extraordinary new level of textural and overall appeal. Conestoga has crafted effects from satin smooth, to wood grain medium, to dramatic deep embossed to answer the wants and needs of today’s designers and homeowners. Taking full advantage of the latest European lamination technology, the Allure program now includes 22 inspired door styles and 13 captivating colors – from White Dove, to Canadian Grey, to Ashen Grey…all paint matchable. The products exhibit exceptional durability, dimensional stability, household safety, and environmental friendliness – at price points 30-50% below comparable finished wood products.
A fine furniture look in a custom kitchen or bath represents a highly desirable aesthetic for designers and homeowners alike. This type of styling has an elegant way of elevating the expected to the extraordinary. And Conestoga Wood is leading the way with their new Shaped Side freestanding furniture treatments.
For designers and customers who want great looks, high quality, design flexibility, easy ventilator installation and service access…all at great price points, there’s Conestoga’s advanced Le Marcin Range Hood program. Conestoga has taken their already successful line of Le Marcin Range Hoods and added three new models, in styles that complement Traditional, Transitional, and Shaker cabinetry designs…available in Cherry, Hard Maple, and Paint Grade Hard Maple with MDF center panels.
Mullion cabinet doors have long been a favorite of designers and homeowners who seek to create a kitchen that allows the display of fine china, glassware, and heirloom gems to play an integral role in the look, feel, and personality of a space. After all, what better personal expression could there be than showcasing pieces that help define your living style in both the everyday and special occasions?
While decorative elements are still an essential part of kitchen design, many designers have opted to utilize more simplistic or understated architectural accents. With the overwhelming response to the introduction of our new legs and corbels last spring, we are expanding our decorative accents to include another series of square post designs. These new Mission posts are available in plain, full rout, partial rout and chamfered corner. Cherry, Hard Maple, Red Oak and Paint Grade can be specified for whole, half and 3/4 notched posts. These posts are in style, functional and timeless, fitting well into both traditional and contemporary settings. See the Mission posts on 12.10A in your Custom Products Manual.
Our newest option, weathered grain, creates a highly textured and rustic appearance on Conestoga’s slab and 5-piece doors and drawer fronts. The texturing process removes softer areas of wood within the growth rings, producing a look that resembles old weathered barn wood without the compromising cracks, voids and splits. The Weathered Grain option is available on several species including Alder, Cherry, Hickory, Pine and MDF, but looks most authentic on Red and White Oak, especially Quarter Sawn or Rift Oak.
When painting cabinetry, a coat of primer is necessary to ensure flaws in the substrate are masked and the accurate, consistent color is achieved on the cabinet’s surface. A layer of good quality primer also assists in the curing cycle and can eliminate the need for additional coats of paint to fill porous areas within the wood. For darker finishes we’ve found that tinting our white primer, using a Prism Paint or Colourtone, can avoid inconsistent finishes. We are now making these tinted primers available to specify on your primed products and to purchase from our Duraguard loose finishes program. Light grey, medium grey and dark grey now augment our current white primer.
