Waypoint Introduces New Painted Stone Finish, Open shelving, Improved Glides


Waypoint's style 650F in Painted StoneSerene, sophisticated and uber cool. That’s gray. It’s a color that works with a variety of decorating styles. It’s just as appropriate in a country setting as it is in a room with an industrial edge. Long the designers’ darling, the color continues to gain in popularity. Gray is everywhere and shows up in fabric, paint, decorative accessories and now in Waypoint Living Spaces cabinetry styles 720R and F, 650 S & F, 610 S & D, 611 S & D, 750F, 740F and 760F.

Really we shouldn’t be surprised at gray’s popularity when taken in the context of kitchen design. How long have stainless steel appliances been in vogue? By my count, more than ten years .That makes it a true trend and not just a fad. Interestingly, Jenn-Air appliances recently introduced a refrigerator with an Obsidian interior. It’s nearly black but not quite and it’s a real revelation in the appliance industry. It looks like gray has a long life ahead of it.

Waypoint's Elite Full Extension CushionClose glideIn addition, Grass’ Elite Full Extension CushionClose glide are now a standard in Waypoint cabinets.  These full extension glides have a weight capacity of 80 lbs. and have a new back bracketing system that makes them even more stable. Because the drawer size (both width and height) and back bracketing changed some interior drawer accessories will be discontinued, others redesigned and re-launched in May.

Waypoint's new open shelving systemFinally, a new open shelf system has been added to the product offering. The shelves are 2 ½” thick and come in 24”, 30”, 36” 42” and 48” widths. They’re 10” deep and aren’t trimmable. Load ratings vary from 30 lbs. to 60 lbs. All sides are finished to match the cabinetry.
