Wood-Mode: New Door Styles

“When introducing new products to our door collection, we put great effort towards developing product that offers design versatility,” said Rod Hunter, Wood-Mode general manager. “While we have products that fall squarely in the category of traditional or contemporary, we find that doors with an adaptable profile that can accommodate many different design styles best suit our customers. Just by changing the finish or stain, countertop material, or even the hardware, homeowners can carefully tweak the design to meet their vision.”

Edison Heights by Wood-Mode

 

Edison Heights represents an urban environment that weaves a rich fabric of cultural, educational, and economical opportunities for younger professionals who are calling it home. They are beginning to update existing homes in residential city neighborhoods with the latest technology and materials while retaining many of the architectural details of the original building. This blending of traditional elements and modern amenities embraces a neutral color palette paired with tasteful color accents. Their concern for the environment is reflected in the use of recycled and natural materials. For many of them, they want their home to be a work of art and in particular they see their kitchen as art.

 

For busy young professionals with children, urban living is both convenient and cerebral. The remodel of this Edison Heights home provides the opportunity to incorporate an open floor plan with decorative and functional lighting, as well as the latest cooking technology, including multiple appliances to accommodate multiple cooks during meal preparation and clean up.

 

Parents can now work in the kitchen while helping kids with homework or observing play. The open kitchen and living space offers the ability to adjust the ambiance of the space with well-placed lighting for memorable entertaining and socializing with family and friends. Tall cabinetry provides easy access to storage that is well lit for supplies and small appliances. The refrigerator, freezer, steam oven, and warming drawer are integrated into the built-in wall of cabinetry.

 

A large island with a stainless steel top allows the cook to interact with guests or family members. One side of the island is designed for food preparation activities with illuminated specialty storage options while the other organizes dinnerware, serving pieces, and table linens for maximum visual accessibility. Rounded corner pieces soften the size of the island. This detail is repeated on the wet bar area and the breakfast nook.

 

Architectural details in the window and door trim, coffered ceiling, and fireplace preserve the historical heritage. Mirroring many of the details of the fireplace, the hood over the induction range incorporates pull-out storage for spices.

 

Both frameless European style cabinetry and traditional inset front frame construction are featured in the kitchen and living areas. The Park Avenue (Design Group 84) and Murray Hill (Design Group 42) door design is the same with only slight dimensional differences dictated by the cabinetry construction methods. Both feature a one-inch thick frame with a flat center panel. State-of-the-art LED lighting is integrated into both types of cabinetry and offers functionality and ambiance.

 

Glazed opaque finishes in Bright White and Silver Mist play off the soft neutral color scheme while the sandblasted white oak on the island, nook, tables, and mantle center panels has a look and texture of recycled wood. Large slab ceramic tops and backsplash provide easy maintenance. On the wet bar, a metal coated countertop uniquely contrasts the vintage white base cabinetry, while sliding doors with beveled glass inserts on the center wall cabinet reveal an antique mirror backsplash, lending a touch of vintage elegance. Reinforcing a sense of history are the brass and black iron light fixtures which feature state-of-the-art LED efficiency.
