Quite often, a commercial facility can get a complete new face lift just by changing the cabinet doors. Many options are available for commercial usage.

Normally for commercial applications the doors will be flat, slab doors, with no design. These are normally edge banded doors, these can be made out of plywood, MDF, Melamine or RTF (Rigid Therma Foil), which is baked on finish.

Currently, there are many styles of melamine that work very well for a commercial facility, giving a new updated look of driftwood, or white oak even vertical White Oak, or other textures or simple white, we’re also able to offer real wood grain or painted finishes.

For shop finished woods, we use all common species available. Lately the trend has been rift cut white oak, book matched is most popular, which brings a small up charge for the book matching. Walnut is a classic that will most likely never go out of style, especially with popular furniture stores like Room and Board and West Elm using Walnut for many of their styles. However, even though flat doors are the trend, sometimes you may want to go beyond the basics, we are here to help with that

If melamine or Thermafoil are wanted, mostly for durability and cleaning, very common at the moment are Driftwood styles, which come in an array of colors. We use popular brands like Cleaf, Duramar, and Richlieu: all of these companies have many textures and styles to choose from, with matching edge bands for making doors.

If your project is demanding ‘real wood’ we could look at the options of veneers which are real wood veneers, which we can stain and finish or finish with a natural wood finish, or with a catalysed finish, for a more durable but natural look. What you will find in the past five years, is the sheen level has definitely trended more to the matte finishes. If you think in terms of percentages for shine, 60 being semi gloss, 30 being Satin, the most popular, we are finding, currently are the 20-30% range.

Current trends are definitely light. For several years we saw the Espresso phase, over oak or Maple, then it moved more towards the Walnut phase, now we are well into the Driftwood or even White Oak phase, which always seems to be classic.

There does not seem to be much Maple being used lately, as trends are opting for stronger grain movement and away from the ‘reds and yellows’. Definitely the white washes and grey washes are in, again with heavy or at least noticeable grain patterns. Maple may very well be used in a Mid Century home, still, that is, for some case study homes, architecturally correct.
