Neil Kelly Offers Green Kitchen Cabinets

From a style standpoint, they have been somewhat of a trendsetter with their American Craftsman and Transitions lines of cabinets. Now the company, which is a member of The Natural Step, is seeking to establish itself as the trendsetter in the environmental building arena.

The Neil Kelly Naturals Collection is being rolled out at the Portland Home Show on October 15-18. All cabinets in the product line include a number of significant environmental features, with others available as add-on options. The cases of all cabinets in the line will be made with certified wood components, including doors, drawers, and (where used) veneers on the particleboard frames. The company is currently going through a chain-of-custody certification process through the Smart Wood Program for the cabinets in this line. All finishes used in the line will be environmentally friendly. The options include a natural oil/wax finish that the homeowner renews periodically (a container of this finish will be provided with the cabinets).
