A new year brings new innovations for builders and contractors as manufacturers roll out fresh products. Spahn & Rose has these cutting-edge items available now—and here’s our first roundup of five of the top new products for 2022.
Taking inspiration from powerful natural forces that alter the landscape, Cambria has introduced new cabinet countertop designs with debossed veining and gently textured compositions. A distinctive artistic touch for any kitchen, Forces of Nature designs include Inverness Cobalt, Inverness Gold, Inverness Bronze and Inverness Platinum. Each has a cool, blank white canvas with veins of color that beautifully evoke disruptions in nature.
Designed for the toughest grinding and cutting applications, these deliver next-level job-site productivity and enhanced safety. These new devices from Milwaukee generate 11 amp of corded power and feature five speed settings between 3,500 RPM and 8,500 RPM, giving contractors and builders greater control by enabling them to reduce or increase their speed during grinding and cutting. They’re available with either a paddle switch, for increased comfort and ease of use in a variety of positions, or a slide switch, designed to reduce user fatigue. The new Variable Speed Grinders include a RAPIDSTOP™ Brake for greater safety, bringing most wheels to a stop in under two seconds.
Putting a modern twist on the Shaker door style, Dura Supreme’s new Parker door has a panel recessed 1/8” from the frame. This low-profile panel is a sleek alternative to the traditional Shaker style and fits in well in homes with transitional and soft-contemporary designs. The sophisticated, European-inspired look can easily pair with modern doors to create an eye-catching kitchen. These new cabinet doors are available in cherry, maple, paint-ready plain and quarter-sawn white oak.
Benjamin Moore’s color of the year for 2022 is October Mist 1495, a gently shaded sage perfect for just about any room. The hue can anchor a space and lets other bursts of color from artwork or furniture really pop. With October Mist as backdrop, homeowners can effortlessly devise other combinations to create visual harmony. In addition to October Mist, Benjamin Moore has released a palette of 14 colors, including refreshed primary colors, luminous pales and botanical hues. Harmonious yet diverse, these colors in combination can create rooms that are whimsical or meditative yet eclectic.
For 2022, ThermaTru has introduced three new door lines: Casual Haven, Renewed History and Modern Revival. With nature-inspired textures and materials, Casual Haven doors offer abundant light, creating a seamless transition from outside to inside. The Renewed History line is a fresh take on traditional architectural elements such as curves and arches for a welcoming yet stylish look. And ThermaTru’s Modern Revival line nods in the direction of midcentury-modern and ’70s modern aesthetic alike with asymmetrical elements and warm textures.
