Pioneer Cabinetry comes in a variety of wood and color options.

Here is a brief statement of each wood type. To learn more about them click on their links

Oak - the mainstay of the cabinet and furniture industry, offers depth in color from pink to white and light brown.

In addition, green, yellow and even black color veins may appear as mineral streaks. Oak is also known for its wide and narrow grain patterns that are considered desirable qualities in this strong, open-grained American classic.

Maple - Predominately off-white in color, maple is a smooth, closed-grain wood that may contain shades of brown and pink.

Other characteristics include occasional fine dark mineral streaks and small black knots also known as “bird’s eyes.” Maple accepts a variety of stain colors, although random, “blotchy” patterns may occur with medium and dark stains that add to the character of this warm wood.

Hickory - is a very “wild” wood, known for its wide spectrum of color that can range from white to dark brown and can also feature wormholes and black knots.

A clear or light stain will maximize the color, while a darker stain selection will offer this wood its own distinguishing characteristics.

Cherry - is a multi-colored wood characterized by shades of red, white and brown.

Cherry’s natural color, while stunning from the start, will continue to develop into richer tones as time passes; this will be most apparent in clear or light stain finishes. With time, darker tones will turn a deep, reddish brown, while light areas will mellow to medium yellows and browns.

Painted - Tinted varnishes, which give cabinets a "painted look," are one of today’s hottest trends in cabinetry.

Since they are designed to cope with today’s hectic lifestyle, durability is never an issue with tinted, catalyzed varnish finishes. As with all manufacturers’ five-piece painted products, homeowners should expect minor cracking of the painted finish at the door and cabinet frame joints, and therefore they will not be replaced under warranty.

Thermofoil - White, Snow and Ivory thermofoil door cabinets offer an alternative to the typical wood/stained cabinet.

The Thermofoil door also offers a clean seamless look that is durable and easy clean.

Snow and Ivory thermofoil feature a smooth "painted look" finish. White thermofoil features the industry standard "textured" finish. The interior of the cabinet box is a natural maple woodgrain vinyl.

The "Olde World" look of glazing cabinetry is a great way to give your home a unique and classic look. A glazed finish is achieved by applying the glaze over the entire surface of all finished parts, then wiping the glaze off by hand. The result is stunning, as the glaze will "hang-up" unevenly in corners, profiled edges and end grain of each glazed component. It is recommended that the homeowners view an actual door sample or display before selecting a glazed finish, as color variations will occur between individual cabinet components.
