Looking for kitchen cabinetry? Here are five recent introductions that offer solutions to a variety of needs.

[1] Scavolini’s Tribe (above and below) is a contemporary kitchen distinctive in both color and form. In addition to a variety of tactile materials, such as bronze-finished metals that create a raw, earthy feel, the line offers two door styles: dark brown oak with a red or Havana finish, customized with a graphic decoration, and matte-lacquered metallic in shades of blue and bronze. It also includes glass inserts, bronzed hardware, granite and laminate countertops, and laminate backsplashes with customized decorative elements. [2] Adding to its line of stainless-steel outdoor cabinetry, Danver has developed a range of virtually maintenance-free finishes, including powdercoated options that mimic wood. Manufactured to withstand all outdoor conditions and reduce cleaning time and expense, the painted wood finishes depict the grains of 10 different species, resulting in realistic wood cabinetry that complements natural surroundings. [3] A smart solution that provides increased storage and easy accessibility in challenging corner cabinet areas, Merillat’s CornerStore corner access cabinet (available December 2010) features three full-extension drawers in its center flanked by two pullout pantry trays. Two drawer sizes and adjustable-shelf trays provide flexible storage, while a cut-away counter redefines corner work zones and delivers more usable counter space. [4] SieMatic has added 15 new wood veneers to its selection of surface options for the S2-H, SL 505 and SE 4004 kitchen collections. Available with a horizontal or vertical wood grain, the new wood species include different shades of oak, cherry and walnut, as well as teak, rosewood, pine, wenge and a black fineline multilaminar veneer, which uses plantation wood to reproduce decorative effects typical of quality wood species that are often protected and rare. [5] Warm and inviting, Wood-Mode’s Hudson Valley kitchen features the Providence door style—a mitered-corner door with both raised and recessed panels. Incorporating several architectural elements—such as medallion inserts and X-medallion mullion glass doors—the kitchen comes in a variety of finishes, including plantation (shown on the island) and amaretto (shown on the perimeter cabinetry). Both are part of the new Artisan finish category, which has a “crackle” textural element.
