Construction Materials

Alder Rustic

Commonly used to create  a rugged look with knotholes, burls and mineral streaks. Alder Rustic is great for a modern industrial look with a darker finish.

Cherry

Cherry brings a rich and elegant feel and is often used in fine furniture. Cherry will darken with age and contains small knots for added character.

Hickory

The hardest America wood species with the widest color variation. Random burls, knots and mineral streaks give a hickory kitchen a unique sensibility.

Hickory Rustic

Hickory Rustic showcases a combination of open knots, wormholes, dramatic color contrast and mineral streaks.

Maple

Maple is a go-to wood species that is uniform and predictable. As result, it takes lighter stain and paint color well.

Oak

Oak is another popular versatile wood species with rich textures and grain patterns that  lends itself to practically any application.

Evercore®

Evercore® is a smooth surface that is receptive to paint and resistant to climate. It is a versatile and durable option coveted by homeowners and designers alike. With the addition of several styles and finishes, the Masterpiece® Collection showcases Evercore® like never before.

Cleaning & Care For Merillat Cabinetry

Wood Finishes

Cleaning and caring for Merillat kitchen and bath cabinets is easy. For routine dust removal, a simple soft lint-free cloth will do the job. For added effectiveness, the cloth can be dampen slightly with water or a dust remover spray. If food is spilled on the cabinets, it should be cleaned immediately with a clean cloth and mild soap if necessary and wiped dry with a soft cloth. The cabinets should be polish once or twice a year using a light coat of quality furniture polish. To preserve the appearance and integrity of Merillat kitchen and bath cabinets, we recommend never to use detergents, soap pads or steel wool to clean them. Harsh abrasives will mar the wood finish. You should also avoid using paste wax and polishes that contain silicone as they create a wax build up that lives a residue that is difficult to remove  and attracts dust.

Laminate – Melamine and Vinyl

The interior and exterior laminated surfaces should be cleaned periodically using a damp soft cloth and wiping the area dry after cleaning if necessary.

Glass Doors

To clean the glass doors of Merillat kitchen cabinets, a commercial glass cleaner can be used. Merillat’s glass  panel can be cleaned while mounted on the door or can be removed for better access. When cleaning mounted glass, be careful not to damage the finish of the door and cabinet parts while cleaning. 

Preventative Care

Self-cleaning ovens are cleaned through the use of intense heat. If the heat gasket does not seal properly, heat may escape from the oven. Cabinets installed near a self-cleaning oven can suffer finish or surface damage. To minimize the risk of damage during cleaning cycles, we recommend that you remove doors and drawers from cabinets that are above and adjacent to a self-cleaning oven.

UV Effects

Over time, Ultra Violet light rays in natural sunlight may effect the appearance of cabinets. Merillat applies UV inhibitors to all its wood cabinetry as part of the finishing process. The finish on your cabinetry will not change, but the wood may, depending on its natural characteristics, the amount and direction of light exposure, and the portion of the cabinet that receives light
