LANCASTER, Pa., May 19, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Simple, elegant and tasteful, Shaker styling is ageless.  The new Trevant™ line from Armstrong Cabinets refreshes the timeless Shaker look with unpretentious and contemporary design sensibility.   

Trevant blends the best of old and new – classic Shaker cabinet details paired with modern materials. The full overlay door panels feature a chunky band of wood around the frame, and the pure, minimalist design is well-suited to fit any home's décor. It follows the Shaker tradition of a strong focus on order and utility.

Kitchens have become an all-encompassing, central room in the home. "Families are changing, and while they may not be 'cocooning' anymore, they certainly are 'nesting'," said Tosha Di Iorio, manager, Marketing Communications. "We want our homes to reflect the way we really live and to make our daily tasks easier and more comfortable."

The alluring beauty of Trevant's clear grain maple lends itself well to either contemporary or traditional styling. Clean lines and basic forms characterize Trevant's 3/4" thick solid door frame, which features maple wood panels with true Shaker width stiles and rails. Both a slab drawer front as well as a five-piece drawer front , assembled with mortise and tenon joints, are offered. Treasured by furniture and cabinet makers for years, the fine texture of maple, a strong hardwood, is also known for its close, uniform grain.

For cabinets, it's all about wood. Using natural looking materials in neutral or earth colors brings the outdoors in, noted Di Iorio. Details like simple, honest door styles convey a sense of casual elegance. "For homeowners who love the look of natural hardwood cabinets but prefer the understated wood grain patterns and textures of maple, Armstrong's new Trevant fits traditional tastes, yet is refined for modern living."

While floors, countertops and cabinets are generally the big-ticket items in an overall kitchen remodel budget, it's the cabinets that provide the centerpiece from which consumers build their overall design scheme and color palette. The palette can range from light neutrals to dark, rich neutrals.  Trevant is available in eight gorgeous finishes, including Espresso, Bordeaux, Mocha,Café,Toffee, Natural, Vanilla Cream and new Autumn Brown, a rich, warm tone.  

The Trevant maple door style combines easy installation and maintenance with the durability of  Allwood™,  Armstrong's top-tier construction with quality features usually found only in custom cabinetry. It also is available on Armstrong's Premier™ and Extreme™ constructions.

All of Armstrong's cabinets are certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) Environmental Stewardship Program (ESP) recognizing a commitment to ensuring the responsible use of natural resources through sound environmental management and sustainable practices.
