What’s New with Wood-Mode

It’s a new year, and that means we’ve got our eye on what’s new in 2015. When we head to Las Vegas next week for KBIS, one of our goals will be to scout the latest design trends and hottest new products in home renovation.

In the kitchen, we’ve got our eye on several new products and trends for 2015. In addition to the brand new Dekton line by Cosentino (which features new colors, as well), we are really excited about what’s happening with our friends at Wood-Mode.

Pet Parlor

Wood-Mode Pet ParlorWood-Mode brings a sophisticated flair—and all the amenities you could ask for—in their new Pet Parlor line. Get organized and pamper your pets with everything from increased storage to built-in water fountains and hideaway food dish holders. If you groom your pets at home, the washing stations and island built for brushing are must-haves; sliding cabinets are perfect for food storage.

Wood-Mode’s Pet Parlor comes in the Embassy Row lifestyle theme, and doubles as a laundry room which gives many features—the island, integrated lockers, storage—a dual purpose.

Wood-Mode at KBIS

In a recent press release, KBIS announced an exciting new development in their KBIS booth presentation. As part of their ongoing partnership with Susquehanna Service Dogs (SSD), Wood-Mode will host four service dogs and their handlers to demonstrate the new Pet Parlor concept.  SSD trains service dogs to assist children and adults with disabilities to become more independent, and part of the KBIS experience will include a fundraiser for the organization. Wood-Mode will donate $5 for each person who posts a selfie with the dogs at the show using the #KBISselfie hashtag and @woodmode on social media. Read the press release to learn more about Wood-Mode at KBIS.

Your Dream Kitchen for Christmas

If a kitchen full of brand-new custom cabinetry is on your Christmas wish list, now is the time to make your own holiday dreams come true. Now through January 23, 2015, Wood-Mode is offering customers an unbeatable deal, bringing back their popular ‘Pick-2’ Savings Event. Imagine saving top dollar on high-end custom cabinetry this Christmas, and entertaining in your new kitchen next holiday season!

How You Save

The Wood-Mode ‘Pick-2’ event works like this: Customers who shop Wood-Mode cabinetry will enjoy 100 percent off their first premium and 50 percent off their second premium cabinet options*. The last time Wood-Mode held a ‘Pick-2’ event, some customers reported saving as much as $15,000! Designed for homeowners who seek flexibility to choose door styles, finishes, and wood species, the ‘Pick-2’ event provides an opportunity for huge savings; it’s possible to create a custom Wood-Mode kitchen for just a little bit more than the cost of Brookhaven cabinetry.

Learn more about the factors affecting costs of custom cabinetry.

Door Styles & Finishes

Customers shopping the Wood-Mode ‘Pick-2’ Savings Event can choose between Dor/Drawer head, Finish Premium, or Wood Species to maximize the savings.

*Stainless Steel and Backpainted Glass door styles are excluded from the 100 percent off premium selection, but are eligible for the 50 percent off premium.

Why Shop Now

Aside from the chance to save a lot of money, why shop cabinets now when the holidays already seem overwhelming? Here are our top reasons:

 Wood-Mode is quality you can see! Visit the Cabinets & Designs showroom to see Wood-Mode cabinetry up-close, and understand the amazing value ‘Pick-2’ has to offer.
