For expertly crafted solid wood interior doors, we work with Good's Millwork. Their solid handcrafted hardwood doors are constructed to bring out the beauty of your home.

Good's Millwork offers many popular styles of doors, many available for quick ship, and can create any custom style you can dream of. They also offer several choices in wood including Red Oak, Knotty Pine, Knotty Alder, Poplar/MDF and Radiata Pine. Popular with many of our customers, Good's Millwork also offers Solid Eastern "Virginia" Cedar -- a beautiful wood that turns a rich red once finished.

Get Organized in Great New Ways. The innovative team at Rev-A-Shelf showcased some great products at KBIS. Check out the video to see their new lighting, mud room and closet organization, and new items for the kitchen like the new, easy to install soft-close hinge (pictured right).

These hinges have precise movement for smooth, tight operation and the spring allows the hinge to close firmly and stay closed.







Bold Colors for Kitchen and Bath. Jonathan Adler, potter, designer, and lead judge on Bravo’s Top Design, recommends peppering every room in the home—including the kitchen—with little surprises and exclamation marks of color. “It’s the surprise factor that makes color work,” he says. According to Adler, there’s nothing better than a colored sink to bring a kitchen to life. Even better, he says, “These colors work in just about any kitchen color palette to add a little punch.”

Available from Kohler, the colors are Piccadilly Yellow, Palermo Blue, Greenwich Green, and Annapolis Navy. These new special edition sink colors are fresh, original and bold.

The bathroom accounts for most of our indoor water consumption. Toilets, showers and faucets often steal away more fresh water then we need -- and you can still maintain optimal cleanliness with powerful fixture performance. Here are three ways Kohler fixtures can help:
  • Toilets that flush 1.28 gallons or less, when compared to a 3.5-gallon toilet, can save homeowners up to 16,500 gallons of water per fixture per year. (Based on average usage of a household of four.) 
  •  Faucets with low-flow aerators deliver up to 45% water savings over traditional 2.75 gpm faucets. 
  • 1.75 gpm water-conserving showerheads and handshowers deliver an impressive 35% water savings over traditional 2.75 gpm showerheads and handshowers.
