OAK BROOK, Ill. – February 9, 2015 – Medallion Cabinetry at Menards, manufactured by Elkay, has launched a new finish in addition to other new products.
Appaloosa is a specialty finish achieved by combining several elements like distressing, antique brushing and spatter, which can create a slight variability in appearance from one door to the next. “This layered, hand-applied finish draws its inspiration from nature,” said Kristi Howard, product manager for Elkay. Appaloosa consists of gray undertones and charcoal brushed highlights, physical characteristics found in legacy distressing as well as an additional element of spray spatter, which adds to the antiqued appearance. It is available on Cherry, Knotty Alder, Maple and Rustic Maple in Medallion’s Premium product line.
Medallion at Menards also is offering a five-piece drawer front modification in the Deluxe product line. “This new modification offers more flexibility to provide an upgrade option to slab-style drawer fronts,” said Howard. “Five-piece drawer front construction provides more detail in the profile and frames eye-catching hardware.”
Medallion at Menards is also offering expanded door species. “In an effort to keep up with today’s trends, we have expanded the wood species offering of several of our most popular door styles with more rustic options,” said Howard. New rustic door options include:
Another new product added to the Medallion Cabinetry at Menards line is floating shelves. “Open shelving is a popular solution for customers wanting a more open feel in their kitchen or bathroom,” said Howard. Medallion’s floating shelves are 12 inches deep and can be up to 72 inches wide.
Also adding convenience to the kitchen is the Pull-Out Waste Container with Automated Drive. “This base-cabinet product allows homeowners to easily dispose of waste hands-free,” said Howard. “Just by pressing against the cabinet with your knee, hip or foot, your kitchen garbage will slide out smoothly and slowly, allowing you to clean up more quickly and easily.”
Medallion at Menards has also made ordering its products more convenient with the addition of one-click SKUs. “One example of this is our Smart Storage Cabinet,” said Howard. “This product combines a base cabinet with factory-installed double roll-out trays, a tray divider modification, a full-width cutlery divider in the top drawer and two door organizer accessories, but rather than ordering five separate products arriving in five separate boxes, you can now order all five pieces with a single click and receive one smart cabinet that is ready to go, out of the box, no assembly required.” Similarly, the Smart Sink Base Cabinet combines a Sink Base, Sink Mat Accessory and Door Organizer Accessories, all in a one-click SKU.
