Today’s kitchen cabinets are more environmentally-friendly than ever. Plus, new recycling methods create more kitchen storage space.


Ruggedly Reassuring: An authentic, honest wood with deep character and dramatic grain, northern red oak (Quercus rubra) was popular during the Victorian period. Harder than most woods and virtually indestructible, oak earned a place in American history as the material of choice.


The common walnut and the black walnut and its allies, are important for their attractive timber, which is hard, dense, tight-grained and polishes to a very smooth finish. The colour ranges from creamy white in the sapwood to a dark chocolate colour in the heartwood.


Classic or Casual: With its fine-grained beauty and subtle shadings, sugar maple (Acer saccharum) is both endearing and enduring. A traditional favorite since the Colonial era, maple is the essence of strength and durability. Equally at home in traditional or contemporary settings, HomeCrest maple cabinetry lends timeless elegance to any room.


Warmly Elegant: A favorite for centuries, black cherry (Prunus serotina) has long been chosen by artisans for fine furniture and museum-quality sculptures. With its rich undertones and mellowing patina, black cherry becomes more beautiful with each passing year and lends timeless beauty to any room.


Warm and Woodsy: Unpredictable. Uncompromising. Rugged as the Appalachian Mountains. Hickory (Carya) is an outstanding choice for those who appreciate vibrant tones and wild, natural variations.
