MONROE, WA â Canyon Creek Cabinet Co., a high-end cabinet manufacturer, introduced a new custom storage line, Closets Plus, in late April. The line is being offered through its dealer network in the Northwest United States.
âCloset systems are a natural extension of our existing business, as we already have designers and sales people working with our customers supplying cabinetry for kitchens, bathrooms, home offices, entertainment centers and more. This will allow us to provide true one-stop shopping for all their interior cabinetry and organizational needs, from a company our customers already know and trust,â says Bill Weaver, Canyon Creek president and CEO. âWhile closets will not be our main business, it is an important component to providing our customers the products and services they expect from us, and we expect closets to be a substantial part of our business.â
Closets Plus uses a suspension rail system and features almost 50 different design modules. A wood line is available in maple and cherry in five different stains, ranging from light to dark shades. There are four different wood door styles with matching drawer fronts. There also is a melamine line in white, crÃ¨me and six woodgrains: caramel, chai, chocolate, Ancona walnut, western alder and Windsor mahogany. There are seven thermofoil door styles. Mullion and grid options are available in both thermofoil and wood doors.
The company offers a variety of crown mouldings, valances, columns and decorative hardware. It also offers a complete selection of standard closet accessories in various finishes and colors.
As part of its launch of the new line, Canyon Creek conducted extensive training for its design and sales personnel. Chicago closet designer and CLOSETS contributor Denise Butchko was contracted to develop and coordinate the training efforts, which stretched over a period of several months.
âTraining professionals from the kitchen and bath industry on the ins and outs of closet design is incredible to me on many levels,â Butchko says. âIâve moaned for years about how you canât just drop a bunch of 24-inch-deep cabinets with rods into a space and call it a closet. Canyon Creek gets that, and thatâs pretty exciting.
âCloset designers tend to be pretty passionate about their work, so the opportunity to share the strategies and insights was great,â Butchko adds. âTaking them through actual design exercises was very revealing, and creating a design manual forced me to really look at not only how I approach design, but also what the industry standards are. I wish every kitchen and bath company were as savvy (and fun) as Canyon Creek."
Canyon Creek has been a manufacturer of frameless and face-frame cabinetry since 1981 and has won numerous industry awards for its cabinetry and environmental practices. Additional information about the new closet line is available at canyoncreek.com/closetsplus.
