Bluemont and Dominion Collections Are Loaded with Options and Accessories, Making it Easy for Homeowners to Personalize the Heart of Their Home

Combining sophisticated craftsmanship with furniture-like detail, Shenandoah Cabinetry® brings two new exclusive collections to Lowe’s®. The Bluemont™ and Dominion® Collections offer homeowners a versatile, self-assured look that is perfect for a full range of home decorating styles, but does so at a very competitive price.

“Whether homeowners are interested in clean and contemporary, traditional and luxurious, or stylish and fun designs, they are always looking for a way to put their mark on their new space,” says Connie Edwards, CKD, CBD and Shenandoah Cabinetry’s director of design. “With their comfortable and inviting design, as well as Shenandoah’s comprehensive offering of custom features and decorative accessories, the Bluemont and Dominion collections make it easy for homeowners to achieve a versatile, yet personalized look.”

Dominion features a standard overlay, recessed panel design on Cathedral or Square door styles. Available in Cherry, Maple, or Oak, the collection is loaded with decorative features usually reserved for expensive custom cabinetry, including a variety of Shenandoah Cabinetry’s premium finishes. Dominion Maple is currently offered in a clean-looking Natural, new lush Honey, or warm Spice finish, and with Shenandoah Cabinetry’s Mocha glaze finish or the new Coffee glaze finish. Dominion Oak is offered with a Natural, Honey, or Tawny finish and is perfect for enriching a traditional look. For a more rich, elegant style, Dominion Cherry is offered in a warm Spice or deep red-tone Bordeaux finish, or a luscious Chocolate glaze finish.

The Bluemont Collection, available in Maple and Oak hardwoods, consists of a standard overlay, veneer raised panel Cathedral or Square door style. Bluemont Oak, ideal for more traditional designs, features a Natural, Honey or Tawny finish. For a more contemporary look, homeowners can choose Bluemont Maple to create one-of-a-kind kitchens, baths or built-in storage solutions that meet their needs. Bluemont Maple is offered with a Natural, warm Spice or rich Mocha glaze finish, or one of Shenandoah Cabinetry’s new finishes: gold-toned Honey or a deep, rich brown Coffee glaze finish.

These two new collections are sold with a matching drawer front and have all the benefits of Shenandoah Cabinetry’s collections, including: full access glides, premium dovetail drawers, and deep rollout trays, ¾” base cabinet shelves, and butt door configuration on all 24” and 27” cabinets.

Shenandoah Cabinetry, available exclusively at Lowe’s, offers a selection of cabinets from the most popular hardwoods available, including Hickory, Oak, Maple and Cherry, as well as white Thermo Foil. Each comes in a variety of finishes and with a complete line of coordinated moldings and accessories. Standard and Full Overlay hardwood door styles with both Cathedral and Square designs are available, and the entire line features standard dovetail hardwood drawers with the Full Access Hidden GlideÒ Drawer System and available CushionClose™ Silent Drawer System. The standard dovetail hardwood drawers are made of fully finished 5/8” hardwood as well. For more information on Shenandoah Cabinetry, visit its Web site at www.shenandoahcabinetry.com
