2011 has arrived! We are happy (at least I am) to get back into the rhythm of building cabinetry.
You may be interested to know that 85% of the orders that are currently being built receive either a painted or paint/glazed finish. I am not sure what is driving this demand for painted finishes, it could be that paint has always been a desired finish or it could be (based on comments we have heard) that designers and clients love the quality of the paint finish itself. Either way, painted finishes seem to be gaining in popularity.
In a few days I will have the opportunity to visit a number of kitchen showrooms in Holland and Germany and get to interact with several architects and kitchen designers. I am very curious to hear their ideas and thoughts about the future trends.
