Trends - 1" Thick Doors

1 inch thick doors
Looking to create stunning cabinetry with substance?

Try using one of Crystal's 1" thick door styles. The thicker, heavier look of these styles creates dramatic depth and an element of quality and true craftsmanship. Available on inset construction only, you have the option of 3/4" thick face frames or 1" thick face frames.

Design Tip:
Use 1" thick door styles on a 3/4" thick face frame. This allows for an additional profile to be added to the outside edge of the door to enhance the depth even more.

Crystal Update

I just wanted to take a minute and share some news from Crystal. I spent then last 3 days up at the factory with 14 others designers from around the country, learning about upcoming product offerings, while at the same time they picked our brains for products and features we as designers would like to see. They have been fortunate to have seen growth in the last year, and were very sincere in passing on their thanks for our business. That growth has allowed them to develop new products, and expand upon existing ones. Coming this summer we will see several new stain colors for Maple, Cherry and Alder, new design options, expanded moldings and more. They are limiting themselves only to their and our imagination for products we can think of.

So check back in a few weeks as we get the official release of these new products.

Color Trends

Crystal cabinetry paint colors
A few new color options from Crystal Cabinetry.

A hint of color adds a little zing to any room. Three popular colors emerging are— green, gray and blue. These colors have a soothing and calming affect because they remind us of earth, sky and water and also blend well with warm wood tones.

Crystal’s greens are: Basil, Mohr Green and Sage; grays are: Overcast and Stonebridge; and for blue we have the versatile stain: Cape Cod.

Try them with different color highlights or glazes and get an entirely new shade! For instance put black highlight on Cape Cod for a cool blue, or Van Dyke Brown on Overcast for a warm gray. Mohr Green in a Rub-thru finish over Umber stain with black highlight creates an appealing, organic combination.

LuxGuard by Crystal Cabinetry

Exclusive to Crystal, Lux Guard is the new top coat with enhanced depth of color durability and a touchable silky feel like no other. Crystal has been hard at work along with Valspar to develop a coating that gives their finishes a hand-rubbed effect with more depth and luster. The new coating offers a better coverage than ever before, increasing the actual thickness of the finish - you can really feel the difference! The LuxGuard coating is applied to all of Crystal's stains and Signature paints in standard or flat sheen.


An earlier post back in July of 2008 introduced the Valspar Zenith G1 topcoat used by Crystal. Here is that earlier post:

Crystal Cabinets uses Valspar's Zenith G1 Products that are now Greenguard® Indoor Air Quality Certified. THis new topcoat meets the stringent requirements of the Greenguard® Environmental Institute's air quality standard for low emitting products.

One May 4, 2009 Crystal began to transition all clear topcoats (standard sheen and flat sheen) and clear sealers to an ultra-low emitting material, called Zenith G1 topcoat. This finish will become the standard clear topcoat and sealer and will be applied on all drawer boxes and cabinetry finished with stains, Signature Portrait with highlight or brushing and water-based stains.


These ultra-low emitting finishes have been formulated to meet or exceed all KCMA durability standards - chemical, moisture, mar and scratch resistance - yet still qualify as a low-emitting finish.

Crystal's Homestead Finishes

Furniture that has the look of generations of wear.

crystal-homestead-finishes

Crystal's new Signature Homestead finish represents the look of furniture or wood that has had two layers of finish applied, and through generations of wear, the top layer of finish has partially worn off to expose the finish underneath. The wearing of the top finish layer, and the sanding of the raw wood is hand done, thus creating a timeless, handcrafted look for your cabinetry.

crystal cabinet works
The Crystal face frame cabinet line offers traditional inset styles, full overlay door options, and literally thousands of door style, wood specie and color combinations. Custom doors, specialty woods and paint colors are not a problem. Each cabinet is hand crafted and constructed form superior funiture-quality materials.


quest frameless cabinetry
Crystal’s frameless, or European style, product line has been engineered to exacting standards, creating extremely precise tolerances and allowing full access to the interior cabinet space. Although this cabinet line is often used to create sleek contemporary spaces, the customizations allow for any number of design styles including Arts and Craft, Rustic and French Country, just to name a few. Stainless steel facing, accent styling, and high gloss laminates make Quest stand out from the crowd.


keyline semi-custom cabinetry
Crystal now offers a value-priced alternative to the custom framed product. Keyline offers a collection of Crystal’s most popular door styles, woods, finishes and sought-after design elements. By simplifying the choices, Crystal is able to offer affordable high-quality cabinetry with distinctive appearance. And because Crystal and Keyline are similarly constructed, it is possible to combine elements from both cabinet lines with seamless integration.


encore semi custom frameless cabinets
The Encore cabinet line is a value-priced alternative to the Quest frameless product. Encore offers many of Quest's most popular door styles, woods, finishes and unique design elements. And like the Keyline cabinets, Encore can by paired with the full custom line of Quest cabinets with seamless integration.

2009 Crystal Design Awards

kitchen remodel
Designed by Patty Whitman, this kitchen features an Inset custom Gallery door style with a custom drawer finish Signature Chestnut with Van Dyke Brown Glazing on knotty alder. The island is finished in Signature Antique White with Van Dyke Brown Glazing.

The choice of custom inset Gallery door style proved to be an excellent choice to provide a more sophisticated furniture look to the space. The knotty alder wood with the Chestnut stain and Van Dyke Brown glazing provided a warm rich look. This helped to bring the outside in to the house. To provide some contrast lighten the space, the island areas were distressed knotty alder with Antique White paint with Van Dyke Brown glazing. The island and desktops are a rich distressed black walnut wood and the perimeter has Brown Lapis granite tops, which provide the right amount of sparkle to the space.

The main sink is a lovely copper farm sink with a great view of the outdoors. The cook top on the island insures that the cook can maintain conversations and enjoy the view as well. The back wall became symmetrical wall of storage and refrigeration with additional prep space for the cook.



Crystal built the mitered column surround in 2 pieces to get around the support column. The false column was built completely in the factory for ease of installation, as was the peninsula cabinet.
